In an emergency, patients just need to call on a specific number to medical operators, who will connect them with available doctors in just a few seconds.

Client’s Requirements for On-demand Doctor App Development

Based in Charlotte, USA, our client had a scratch idea about the medical software. He wanted to turn the whole medical system online that they were handling manually. Our client and his team were manually filling the patient’s form and data and then those forms were reviewed by doctors at the time of consulting.

Previously, patients were visiting nearby hospitals to consult general physicians and medical operators were following long procedures like filling forms, collecting patient’s data and then send those forms to doctors to get it reviewed.

This whole process was wasting a lot of time of patients and doctors, and there were many patients who were facing problem at the time of emergencies like accident and injuries. The patients used to follow a lengthy process in an emergency as well.

Therefore, our client decided to turn this manual system online and wanted to develop medical software, where patients and doctors can connect with each other online and medical operators fill patients’ data digitally.

What We Proposed to Our Client

After listening to our client’s requirements about the medical software solution, we suggested our client develop on-demand doctor apps solution, comprising a patient’s app, doctor’s app, and web portal for medical operators. Our suggested on-demand doctor apps for Android and iOS platform connect patients and doctors in real-time.

Using the patient’s app, patients only need to call on a specific number to medical operators, explaining about the medical issue. The medical operator will enter the patient’s data in the web portal and connect him with the available doctor.

Patient, medical operator, and available doctor connect with each other through a video call. If necessary, the patient can share the photos of the injury by uploading from gallery or camera. As per the conversation and injury, the doctor will suggest the right treatment and prescribe medication.

Custom iOS App Development for Doctor
On-demand Solution

Our client wanted to develop this doctor on-demand solution on both the platforms (iOS and Android). For iOS development, we assigned one of our Sr. iOS developers, who has over 4 years of experience in the iOS app development industry. Being a Sr. iOS programmer, our assigned developer preferred to read our client’s requirements in detail and then started developing this medical apps solution.

While developing this apps solution, our assigned programmer faced an issue in the group video calling feature. It was quite difficult for our assigned developer to create group video calling, where medical operator, patient, and doctor communicate together. The operator connects through the admin panel whereas the patient and doctor communicate from the patient’s app and doctor’s app respectively.

So, this feature took much time of our developer as he spent almost one week to comprehend and develop this feature. Apart from this issue, our iOS app developer did not face any other issue. He took only 3 months to develop both patient’s app and doctor app for iPhone. To develop this medical solution, our developer used the following tools and technologies:

Programming Language:

Swift 4

IDE:

XCode 10.4


Custom Android App Development for Doctor
On-Demand Solution

As we already mentioned that our client wanted to develop this best doctor app solution for the Android platform as well, we assigned one Sr. Android developer for this project. Our assigned developer directly started working on this doctor on-demand solution as the requirements were clear to him.

Throughout the development of this app, our assigned Android programmer did not face any challenge because the application was already developed on the iOS platform, so it was quite easy for him to understand the entire concept.

The developer took 2.5 to 3 months to develop both doctor’s app and patient’s app on Android platform. Here’re some of the tools and technologies that he used to develop this on-demand doctor solution:

Programming Language:

Java

IDE:

Android Studio

Results

It took 3 months for our iOS and Android developers to develop this doctor on demand solution successfully. Currently, this medical app solution has around 20000 companies and sub-companies registered. And more than 200 doctors are active on this platform.
