Client & Project Overview
A senior doctor from a reputed hospital in Texas, USA, wanted to build a digital TeleMedicine app platform through which his entire hospital staff and patients could access and manage his multi-specialty hospital’s healthcare services.
They were on the lookout for the best healthcare app development companies when they found Excellent Webworld and approached us with their vision. The clients were a team of senior-most doctors and hospital administrators, so they were clear on the technical and user-friendly aspect of the digital space.
Our designers and developers had the opportunity to work with the smartest minds in healthcare in building a TeleMedicine app for doctors and patients that would assist the in rendering top care services.
iOS & Android App Development, Website Development, UI/UX Design
The client wanted to build a complete digital ecosystem for their hospital with multiple platform mobile apps, website, web panels for the doctors with all the bells and whistles. We discussed the project at length and figured out to create a TeleMedicine application platform that would be beneficial for all the stakeholders in the hospital; patients, doctors, healthcare assistants, and hospital administration.
We planned to build a TeleMedicine software for providers and patients on both the prominent platforms, Android and iOS. We also developed a web panel for doctors to access via their computer or tablet at work—also, a website for people to visit and understand the working of the FerMD system.
Android App Development
Android Studio: 3.6, Java: 8, Kotlin: 1.3.72
iOS App Development
XCode: 11.2.1, Swift: 5.0
HTTPS & encryption based on HIPAA-compliance
Node.js / PHP (CodeIgniter)
The design team worked consistently in designing the best app for TeleMedicine and web panel UI that would be understandable to the patients and highly efficient and quick for the doctors. We had to make sure that the patient app was very easy to use for people across all age groups. Here are a few glimpses of how the wireframing was processed.
Features of FerMD
The Challenges We Faced In The Project
Issues with implementing video calling
To implement high-quality, efficient & real-time video communication between two parties, we had to research different methods, and we tried them all; finally, we settled with Twilio.
There was a latency issue with the app
To resolve the TeleMedicine app’s latency issue, we used Socket communication for efficiency & to reduce latency.
Additional Features That We Suggested
The FerMD TeleMedicine application platform is a complete digital system with appointment booking, video consultancy, digital prescriptions, etc. But in the light of the Covid-19 pandemic that affected the whole world, we suggested adding a COVID-19 tracking feature to the website as well as the apps.
