Must-have features for your medical app
The global mobile health market is valued at $56 billionand even more amazing is its projected rise – a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 30%. The market size means there's plenty of room for your app to be successful. These essential features should help:
Book, change and cancel appointments
Appointment booking is the most important feature in any medical app. Your patients can book, change, or cancel their appointments at any time. Freeing up plenty of time wasted on the phone by your office staff. Vital.
Access lab test results
If you provide lab testing facilities, then this feature will add huge value to your application. Patients can access their lab reports anytime, anywhere.
Get appointment reminders
The most common feature in today’s medical app. The app sends out an appointment reminder that shows the patient's phone screen, msg box, or email. Less time wasted on no-shows is better for you – and your patients.
Not a must-have but could be a great additional feature where your app sends prescription reminders to your patients.
Download or upload reports
Data runs the world now and your app will be incomplete if it doesn’t allow your patients to upload and download their lab reports.
View doctor’s profile
Essential for new patients. People want to know about their doctor before visiting a clinic. It’s much more reassuring to have a little detail – a name, a face, a short bio. Having this on your app will help you drive more patients to your clinic.
Address and emergency help
This feature makes your app complete. Patients need to know exactly where you are and what to do in an emergency, after-hours details are essential to include too. Your app should give a sense of security to your patients.
This can be configured any way you need it, but invoicing and in-app payment will save you a large amount of time and energy. People feel comfortable paying online with an app and it removes the frustration of waiting on hold to pay – again saving you time and freeing up your staff.
Do I get HIPAA compliant apps?
As their slogan says, “Your health information, your rights”. And all healthcare apps, software products, ERPs and websites should be HIPAA compliant and should adhere to HIPAA’S protection and security rules.
HIPAA’s security rules say that a patient’s data can’t be revealed without their approval (aside from explicit cases) and the patient should have access to take their data down whenever they want.
We’ve built HIPAA compliant healthcare apps (see some case studies, below) and have followed the guidelines strictly. In an area as sensitive as this, we’re sure you have questions, so please get in touch with our product experts and we’ll talk you through exactly what has worked well for other healthcare providers.
