Those in the healthcare industry are a process-oriented bunch. Doctors have a care process. Hospitals have specialized processes. Clinical labs and pharmacies too have specific processes they work with. For an outsider, with just the technical know-how, all this may seem ridiculously complicated, making the barrier to entry high. Now if you are talking about Healthcare Apps, the situation goes from complicated to downright impossible. For everyone but us, that is.
We are outspoken advocates for Healthcare Apps that are poised to disrupt the industry. And with good reason! Healthcare Apps make life easy for everyone involved and have the potential to save lives too. And if you factor in how intimately they are connected with people’s state of wellbeing, you know we are on the right side of that argument. With several large-scale and superbly executed projects behind us, and a shining portfolio of reputed clients, you can be rest assured we know what we are talking about!
Mobile Healthcare is among the fastest growing categories in the app market today. With 260,000 mHealth apps already in the Apple iTunes and Google Play Store. It is anticipated to reach a staggering $58.8 billion mark by 2020. And we think it is virtually under-served!
Globally, more and more people are using mHealth Apps. The technology too has changed, supporting state-of-the-art features and complex interfaces. Cloud is a huge enabler. Tons of data can now be safely and securely stored onto massive data-warehouses hosted on the cloud, for a fraction of the cost.
mHealth has the patient buy-in. And the doctors are joining in. In the last two years alone, the category has seen an unprecedented rate of adoption, with Doctors, caregivers and other healthcare professionals giving it their valuable nod of approval.
What doctors and healthcare professionals are actually looking for is performance. An app that performs functions with integrity, the way they do.
They are looking for convenience. So, the app should not change the way doctors deliver patient care, rather it should support it.
They are also looking for insight. Record keeping. Documentation. Clinical tools. Elements that will let them keep in touch with patients as they recover. And post-recovery.
On an average, 80% of physicians use smartphones and medical apps. This is great because mHealth apps that enable patients to self-assess disease and health symptoms can help in early intervention and initiation of the care process.
Users use their smartphones and devices to gather health-related information. This includes information about a specific medical problem or procedure, symptom, diet, nutrition, fitness and more. Popular health topics include:
Healthcare apps are influencing behaviour. For example, the users now store and retrieve confidential data on and from their healthcare apps. They can share this data with their doctors with a click of a button. They use e-prescriptions to top up their medicine supply. They order lab tests, pay bills and book appointments. Flexibly and in real-time!
mHealth apps are the mediating link between the busy doctors, and the suffering patients and their caregivers. They are filling the gap by being available, accurate and prompt. Relieving doctors of several preliminary duties and empowering patients.
Data security and privacy are not just about the data that is in the system, it is about how it is accessed, by whom it is accessed and how it is distributed.
Encrypted data is hard to steal. So, we encrypt all data.
Personal data vaults segregate personal data from other data. And when this data is being accessed or transmitted we ensure that standard security protocols protect this data.
We confirm sensitive data is not located on the device. This reduces data breach incidents. We safeguard data so that it is accessed by authenticated and authorized persons only. And your users stay in total control of their data. In short, we take all measures to ensure that your data stays private, confidential and cent percent secure! That’s our guarantee.
The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) is a set of guidelines meant to protect the patient’s medical data. Certain medical apps fall under the purview of HIPAA regulations. Apps that record your vitals and store them or those that provide reference material for diseases and symptoms may not require HIPAA compliance. Although there is no grey area, and it is extremely easy to determine whether an app does or does not require HIPAA compliance, we suggest that you seek counsel and discuss your requirements thoroughly.
Above and beyond the HIPAA compliance, it is crucial to understand whether your app may also require FDA approval. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) may regulate some moderate-risk (Class II) and high-risk (Class III) mHealth Apps.
If your app does one of the following then it requires FDA approval:
An easy way to determine whether your app would or would not require an FDA approval is by understanding the risks associated with your app to patient health.
Again, we urge you to seek counsel and discuss your requirements thoroughly.
