Digitalize with Qualified Healthcare App Development Services
In recent decades, the healthcare industry has managed to move away from the standard idea of waiting in the corridor for a doctor’s appointment. We are all witnessing the rapid development of innovation, and you will probably not find an industry in which it has such a profound positive impact on all of humanity as in the field of healthcare.
Health is the most important human asset, and our well-being is the key to other achievements. Therefore, more and more resources are directed to making our lives not only longer, but also better. This is where app development for healthcare
helps move away from the traditional doctor-patient relationship. The symbiosis of technology and healthcare gives us a great chance to take the industry to the next level and achieve the goals of longevity and good physical and mental health.
Healthcare applications save patients’ and doctors’ time and improve the quality of care by simplifying the scheduling of patient visits, examinations, and treatments. BeKey is an IT company offering bespoke healthcare software app development services since 2016.
Healthcare Apps We Develop
Telemedicine or telehealth is a medical platform that uses technologies to provide long-distance patient support. It was first implemented in the US to reach patients over a long distance and is now becoming a common practice because of convenience. Telehealth app development is mainly used for doctors’ support in non-emergency cases when prolonged inpatient treatment is unnecessary.
To understand how telehealth software works, you can always check our success story of Doctors4UA customer service application. It’s a basic multi-purpose healthcare service that provides medical and mental health support. After the sign-up, a patient interacts with a user-friendly interface and a doctor database to select a specialist and start or schedule an online appointment. Before the first video or audio visit, a patient should fill in a questionnaire on their current condition to help a doctor make a provisional diagnosis and come prepared. When the visit ends, a patient gets necessary prescriptions or guidelines from a physician.
Telehealth is brilliantly embellished by IoT-based smart wearables that monitor and collect patient vitals throughout the day.
Remote Patient Monitoring (RPM) Apps
Remote patient monitoring devices have greatly changed the face of healthcare, allowing doctors to constantly monitor the well-being of patients. And all this without planning check-ups or visits to the hospital. You can also monitor your health on your own, which will make it easier for you to receive professional help in a timely manner.
RPM apps can be used to monitor oxygen, blood sugar, blood pressure, weight, sleep and alert you before potential heart attacks, asthma attacks, etc. Such pre-emptive analysis often highlights early signs of impending disease, allowing doctors to take a proactive approach to care.
The future of healthcare seems to be on the edge of digital, patient-centric, and day-and-night service. Such an approach will empower patients to apply for necessary healthcare services at any time and from any location they need. Achieving this requires improved patient monitoring, disease detection, and healthcare management at scale.
Experts believe that the interest in remote patient monitoring apps won’t stop in the nearest future: people become more aware of their health than previously. This gives developers a chance to make successful apps for remote patient monitoring.
Please contact us if you want to build an efficient, reliable, and scalable solution for remote patient monitoring. Our experienced team will develop a remote patient monitoring application and we’ll implement the integration with the medical device you’d like to use.
Healthcare Apps + IoT
IoT is transforming the healthcare industry, redefining the space where devices and people interact in delivering healthcare solutions. Below are some of its uses in healthcare:
- for patients — wearable devices like fitness bands and other wireless devices: blood pressure and heart rate cuffs, blood glucose meters, etc. These devices can remind you to count calories, blood pressure, etc. The notification mechanism sends signals to family members and medical professionals about any violations or changes in a person’s well-being;
- for doctors — using IoT-embedded wearables and other home monitoring devices, doctors can monitor patients’ health more effectively. Data collected from IoT devices can help doctors determine the best treatment process for patients and achieve the expected results; other devices used to proceed with home observations — digital otoscope or digital statoscope that help doctors to check health at the patient's home and set accurate diagnostics without physical contact;
- for hospitals — sensor-tagged IoT devices are used to track the real-time location of medical equipment such as wheelchairs, defibrillators, nebulizers, oxygen pumps, and other monitoring equipment. The site of medical personnel can also be observed in real-time. IoT devices also help manage hospital assets like pharmacy stock control, refrigerator temperature check, humidity control, etc.
- for health insurance companies — they can use data obtained from health monitoring devices for their underwriting and claims operations. IoT devices also provide transparency between insurers and customers in pricing, claims processing, and risk assessment processes.

Chronic Disease Management Apps
Chronic diseases are ailments lasting long and requiring continuous medical supervision. Considering that 40% of American adults have them, chronic disease management (CDM) is one way for patients to stay in touch with their bodies and lead healthy lifestyles. If something can’t be cured, it needs to be managed.
Such applications help patients manage their conditions, get reminders of appointments and medication, etc. Moreover, such apps also offer expert advice on diet, healthy lifestyle, and exercise. Here’s what disease management apps can do for patients:
- take action — overweight patients can track calories burned and consumed, people with heart disease can track heart rate, pulse, and blood pressure, and patients at risk of diabetes can track sugar intake;
- provide reports — you can receive notifications in the form of a diagram or graph, quickly assess the patient’s health and make decisions about the need to change the course of treatment;
- suggest necessary actions — the application can either work according to a pre-programmed algorithm (for example, it can be programmed to remind the patient to take pills three times a day), or it can be connected to a portable device and monitor vital signs 24/7. Thanks to artificial intelligence, this application can suggest what to do in the event of alarming symptoms. The most innovative applications can detect a possible deterioration of health (for example, an impending heart attack) by analyzing subtle signals.
Our experts with a proven track record in healthcare will conceptualize your CDM solution and verify that it will look, feel and work as envisioned.
Helping patients adhere to their treatment regimens is one of the best ways to improve quality and outcomes while reducing overall health care costs. When patients miss medications, they (meds) don’t work as well as they should, and mortality and morbidity increase. Among patients, forgetfulness is the most common cause of non-adherence to treatment advice.
Today, strategies to improve medication adherence include gamification and setting reminders or automatic notifications, such as on a smartphone or healthcare app. A study published in the Journal of Medical Internet Research found that special reminder mobile apps help improve treatment adherence even for older adults who lack experience with smartphones, computers, or the Internet.
BeKey can provide healthcare mobile app development services for digital therapeutics. The software enables health data analysis, alerting, and processing of information. Such customized software helps to improve the communication between doctors and patients, who are experiencing the process of therapy or rehab.
Mental Health Apps
Mental health has been in the public spotlight recently, and the pandemic only increased an already high level of anxiety. According to a study by the Kaiser Family Foundation, the number of adults in the United States who suffer from anxiety and/or symptoms of depression has doubled during the pandemic.
Although the importance of mental health is becoming more widely recognized, many people still do not dare to seek help from a psychotherapist. There are many reasons for this: inability to afford long-term treatment or regular visits to the doctor due to lack of time; the opinion that counseling is intended only for “unnormal” people; the discomfort of discussing deeply personal problems with a stranger, etc.
Most of the problems listed above are solved, at least partially, by mobile applications. Mental health programs provide more flexibility and reduce the need for trips to the therapist's office. Not all mental health programs are the same. There are many different types of mental health programs that offer various services:
- general mental health apps — these apps help users maintain good habits and break bad ones. These apps can perform functions such as mood tracking, provide positive quotes, and perform relaxation exercises such as guided meditation;
- evaluation apps — such apps help their users get information about mental health disorders. These programs share materials that psychiatrists use to identify them;
- mental disorders apps — current psychiatric treatment programs deal with problems such as depression, post-traumatic stress disorder, anxiety, and schizophrenia. They use cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), mood monitoring, cognitive training, and rational emotive behavioral therapy. There is still room in the mental health app market for PTSD, bipolar disorder, eating disorders, and OCD apps in the mental health app market.
- online therapy apps — they connect you with licensed mental health professionals near you. There are several ways to meet with your therapists, depending on your preferences and program capabilities. Ideally, you can connect to an online call, video call, or online chat. Some programs offer group therapy sessions where several patients join a conference call and have a group therapy session.
If you’re looking for a reliable tech partner for your mental health project, our company can help you to implement it in the best way. We can provide solutions in mental health app development and other similar projects.
Is Your Application HIPAA Compliant?
To protect user privacy, different countries have enacted essentially identical standards and regulations:
- USA — Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act or HIPAA;
- European Union — General Data Protection Rules or GDPR;
- United Kingdom — Data Protection Act.
To comply with all the regulations, mobile health app development workflows must stick to privacy and security rules. As per the privacy rule, the law requires sufficient safety measures to ensure people’s health data privacy and
limits the use and disclosures of such information without prior authorization from the patients. Moreover, the privacy rule also gives patients the right to their health information and the right to obtain a copy of the records and even have corrections made where suitable. The standards involve multiple digital, administrative, and policy-based safeguards for sensitive health data.
BeKey ensures that our solutions comply with the regulations in light of the security and privacy rules. We guarantee that all our digital safeguards are in place.
