Benefits of Telehealth App Development
Telemedicine services bring significant benefits to patients, doctors, and healthcare providers. Accessibility and seamless delivery of healthcare services are among the common reasons to integrate telehealth solutions. Let’s consider the main advantages each party can achieve using such software.
Benefits for Patients
Patients get high-quality care at the desired location. There’s no need to waste time on the road or waiting in queues. It is convenient for those who live in distant areas with no clinics nearby.
Healthcare services become available to people anytime from any part of the world. The speed of getting help is also much higher: usually, you can get a consultation much faster online, than offline.
Reduced Service Costs
Telemedicine solutions are more cost effective than traditional care methods. The growing adoption of such technology pushed healthcare providers to offer various services to deliver care at affordable prices.
Benefits for Doctors
Thrive Time Management
In-app schedules and push notifications will allow for better work-life balance. The doctors will be able to make schedule changes, browse the patients’ medical history, and arrange meetings with one click.
Custom telemedicine software will make it possible for doctors to access and store patients’ EHR effectively. Digital solutions will guarantee seamless data access and transmission.
Quality Patient Time
Healthcare solutions work great not only for medical-related issues but allow doctors to automate administrative processes. They will spend more time with patients instead of documenting.
Benefits for Healthcare Facilities & Admins
Healthcare facilities can save on rent and running administrative facilities, looking for suppliers, and hiring personnel. Online meetings are more time- and cost-efficient than in-person visits.
Expanded Patient Base
The promotion of telehealth solutions can lead to increased patient numbers. It can help grow provider networks in areas where healthcare resources are scarce, enlarging the catchment area of each facility.
Telehealth is a promising approach to increase and keep patient adherence and persistence. Proven factors include close monitoring, satisfaction, and a short waiting period. And the happy patient comes back again.
How to Create a Telemedicine App: Step-by-Step
Securing the software development lifecycle requires a multi-pronged, multi-layered security strategy.
We always start the telemedicine mobile app development process by collecting requirements and all the necessary information about future products. To ensure the success of your project, we thoroughly analyze your business environment and direct competitors, define the project goals and scope, analyze risks and opportunities, estimate the budget, set deadlines, and map out a feasible project plan.
Our team designs high-fidelity wireframes and clickable prototypes to evaluate the visual appearance of a future telehealth app. UI designers create a design system or UI kit with all elements, components, and accessibility features for future healthcare mobile apps.
Development & Testing
Depending on the project’s scope of work, we assign back-end developers to implement the server side of the application, APIs, and business logic, and front-end developers to transform UI design into a functioning user side. Using pre-defined technical documentation, developers write code for all software components. Our team of QA engineers simultaneously conducts various types of testing for all developed components to shorten the time to release and reduce costs.
Deployment & Integration
We deliver the application to users for beta testing. After receiving feedback from users, we make adjustments and improvements if needed. At this step, our primary goal is to ensure that the telemedicine mobile app is hack-proof and bug-free.
Once our customer receives a ready-to-use application, our cooperation doesn’t end there. We guarantee long-term application support, regular functionality updates, and troubleshooting.
Cooperation Models for Telemedicine App Development
To achieve your goals, we at BeKey can propose you several different types of cooperation. They are the following:
We can provide our already existing telemedicine platform using the SaaS model. All the technical finesse we possess and the vast experience we’ve accumulated will result in a solution that propels you to the result you want. The main benefit of this option is that you can start online consultations with your patient almost immediately.
Our dedicated team of developers works full-time for you and builds a solution under your complete control. The advantage of such cooperation is that the team is 100% dedicated to your project, you have full control of the process and we find a substitution for any of the team members in case someone decides to drop off. The knowledge base always stays within your company.
Custom telemedicine development provided by BeKey. Telemedicine app development is a complex process that we handle using an agile approach and providing you with regular results. Our vision for telemedicine app development involves constant collaboration with a client and continuous improvement at every stage. The main profit of this model of cooperation is that you don’t just have an experienced team but you also receive our knowledge and expertise in developing similar solutions. Usually, that saves a lot of time and helps to avoid some common mistakes.
Our Telehealth App Development Key Points
The BeKey telehealth app development team is highly committed to medical compliance and guarantees that your product keeps patient data safe and protects against cyber attacks and data leakage. We also ensure that only authorized staff can access critical information according to their authority.
Outstanding User Experiences
Our design team provides a personalized experience for users and reduces the number of steps to complete specific tasks using your app. Thus, our seasoned UI/UX designers put much effort into creating easy-to-navigate and engaging interfaces focusing on core medical functionality, accessibility, and responsiveness.
Integration with Devices for Remote Patient Monitoring
Our team will integrate telemedicine apps with medical devices for remote patient monitoring. Without them, telehealth alone is unable to provide the level of care many patients need. We can integrate existing devices or even create a device with the help of our hardware department. RPM gives healthcare professionals a more holistic view of patient health and better insights with the help of real-time tracking of vital signs.
Multiple Smooth Integrations
We ensure smooth integrations of your telemedicine app with multiple internal systems in your current infrastructure. This way, we can bring additional value to your business and create a centralized solution that allows you to perform many tasks. So, our experienced product engineers can integrate your app with EHR, EMR, CRM, scheduling, practice management, and other systems.
We develop and test apps with a significant focus on compliance and data security. Thus, our team organizes the development workflow and quality management according to the regulatory requirements of the FDA, GDPR, HIPAA, and other standards.
We provide telehealth apps for people with special needs. We follow inclusive design best practices (e.g., voice control, high-contrast design, etc.) to make content accessible to people with visual and hearing impairments, cognitive disabilities, etc.
Why Choose BeKey as a Telehealth App Development Company
BeKey has a lot of experience in developing robust and creative telemedicine app solutions for our clients and on our own. But not to take these words for granted, check out the live project Doctors4UA. It’s a telehealth platform, which BeKey launched two weeks after the russian-Ukrainian war started. It’s completely free for all the Ukrainians, who don’t have the opportunity to receive qualified medical care due to ruined hospitals and regular bombings, and Ukrainian refugees who had to leave the country. This service is designed to help get professional advice online even in an emergency.
Physicians from all over the world are volunteering and dedicating their time to consult and help online. The platform includes web and mobile applications, both for Google Play and Apple Store, and an admin part to manage the work of the system. In order to get a consultation, a person needs to register and select the doctor needed.
Consultations are held in a convenient way for the patient, it is possible to choose the format: video, audio, or text if it is a bad working Internet connection. Different files, including results of analysis and photos, can be shared in the chat. Also on Doctors4UA, people can get free consultations from veterinarians. The platform is easily scalable, and we are trying our best to help as many Ukrainians as possible.
For a business looking to develop a functional and competing telemedicine app, a professional and expert tech partner is more than important. BeKey is always ready to lend a hand and offer you a telehealth app development solution that is 100% user-centered and secure.
What is a telemedicine app?
A telemedicine app connects doctors and patients who need remote doctor consultations. Such applications can include different solutions for communication, including AI messaging, voice, and video calls.
What is the cost of telemedicine app development?
The cost of telemedicine app development depends on the functionality scope, the development platform’s type (IOS, Android, cross-platform), complexities of features, the number of integrations with other third-party systems or remote monitoring devices, storage capacity, scalability, performance requirements, etc.
On average, the cost of mobile healthcare apps may start from $65,000 with basic functionality and more complex apps — from $100,000. These figures are estimated for the development stage. You should keep other steps in mind if you need a full-cycle telemedicine mobile app development.
In any case, we offer several cooperation models and contact types, so you can choose the most suitable offer fitting your needs. Let’s calculate the cost of your future solution together!
Does my telehealth app for the US market need to be HIPAA compliant?
HIPAA is the primary regulation for using patient data and sanctioning violators of said rules in the United States. Each healthcare software solution dealing with any type of patient information, including telemedicine apps, must comply with it to function correctly and ensure security.
