The two main types of healthcare tools showing the biggest growth are telehealth and remote patient monitoring. As these technologies become more reliable and the network of parties that use them increases, demand for software and hardware like wearables will continue to rise.
Most forward-looking clinics, hospitals, and doctor practices have realized that there are efficiencies to be gained from adopting medical mobile app development solutions. However, it is not simply for efficiency, there are many other benefits like safety, cost savings, and legislative compliance.
While the two regulations mentioned above are US-based requirements, the GDPR rules from Europe list the EU’s requirements for special protection for sensitive information. Within the UK, the Data Protection Act of 1988 ensures data privacy. At S-PRO, we are fully conversant with the statutes of each of these pieces of legislation.
There are many more types of apps that are designed to specifically collect patient information. These might include vital signs monitoring like blood pressure, pulse, and blood glucose levels. Other apps focus on ensuring that healthy habits are being followed, such as water intake tracking, calorie calculators, and activity tracking.
As far as communication APIs, we are fully conversant with common platforms such as OpenTock, Sendbird, and Twilio, to mention but a few. It goes without saying that our software developers are fully conversant with major programming languages such as Java, Flutter, React Native, and Python.
We comply with Agile development best practices, meaning our developers are in constant communication with you and your team to make sure that coding is done with complete transparency and buy-in.
It all comes from our ability to offer comprehensive app development services that range from business analysis, seamless UI/UX design, cutting-edge web development and healthcare mobile application development, quality control, project management, and support.
Going deeper, our experience with other healthcare app development projects has taught us the enduring importance of creating apps that put patient privacy first. We always ensure we are complying with the latest health regulations and our background tools are built on excellent coding best practices with an eye on security.
The next step is roadmapping, where you sign off on the project and formulate a project plan indicating the key milestones.
Design and development come next. These crucial steps are where your software development partner proves their worth by applying your requirements to a strong design and then delivering the project.
After that, you enter the quality assurance and testing phase where your software development partner tests your platform for performance issues.
Finally, it is time to launch. This is where you deploy the product to market.
Developing a telehealth system takes comprehensive planning and analysis. A good idea for the average cost of a telemedicine app ranges from $30,000 to $150,000.
The more features you load, the higher the price will go. There is so much to decide upon before you can reach the final price. It is always best to consult with a software development partner like S-PRO to get an accurate amount.
They are supported by a project manager who is responsible for the day to day running of things and making sure the budget and deliverables stay in scope.
Analysis and development teams are highly technical and contain people like an application analyst who aligns the ideas and concepts of what the healthcare organization wants and what can be done.
They are supported by an application development team that designs and implements applications according to the specifications of the client.
Other important roles include quality assurance teams, information technology leads, super users, and change champions.
