Award-Winning Healthcare App Developer
Building mobile apps that have the ability to rapidly change the way people receive care and medical attention require not only app developers with years of experience and software development expertise, but those who are genuinely passionate about creating digital healthcare products that address the lack of patient-centered care and the inefficiencies of the healthcare system. Healthcare app developers need to be deeply committed with the medical industry, eager to improve patient outcomes and have genuine desire to reduce the overall costs of healthcare. This is the only way they can put themselves in the shoes of healthcare professionals who are overwhelmed with the number of patients with different needs.
We believe that the key to creating successful healthcare mobile apps is empathy. As healthcare app developers, we know how to design and develop medical apps with a consciousness of how it might feel to use the app when we’re sick, weak or in need of immediate medical care. We also do our best to protect medical records and patients’ data using HIPAA Complience Checklists. We take data security seriously: we will never risk non compliance or exposing patients’ health records.
We Love Healthcare
Because It Matters The Most
Your healthcare organization has the challenge of striking a delicate balance. Healthcare organizations and their patients can get so much valuable information from the technology, but you have to account for the burdens of security, privacy, and compliance that raise the risks and responsibilities of your organization. As top app developer in California, Topflight Apps has a track record for designing and developing web and mobile applications in healthcare from enterprise healthcare application to non-profit services through our 501(c)(3) branch.
We can develop the right solution whether you need a patient portal, an EMR system designed to FHIR or HL7 standards, a patient app, blockchain development, or machine learning to improve clinical decisions. Topflight Apps provide healthcare app development solutions that are secure and HIPAA compliant.
Our Healthcare Clients
Medical App Developers
In order to provide the right mobile solutions, we make sure to have the best healthcare mobile app development team. Our team of experts, with over decades of experience in building mobile healthcare apps, is always our best and foremost resource on every mobile app development project. Our mobile health app design, development, and project management is always done in-house. Managing multiple healthcare mobile app projects and clients means we always specify our team allocation up-front, and we make sure to introduce you to who you’ll be working within the duration of our relationship before you make any commitments.
Medical Mobile Apps
Medical apps should be easy to use, simple to understand, add legitimate value to their users, and of course, HIPAA compliant. The healthcare industry is an industry which could benefit significantly from technological improvement, thus, we aim to help hospitals, privately owned firms, and peripheral companies looking to make an impact or improvement in the healthcare space. Patient portals, patient data, medical records, EHR integrations, HL7 data, and HIPAA compliance are all core strengths of our team.
On the surface, you might see medical apps take the form of a fitness pal that you use to track calorie intake or workout schedule. They can even be a a platform used in hospitals or at home for monitoring patient care. Underneath, however, medical app developers need to ensure that there is a deeply complex infrastructure to make sure patient information is kept confidentially, transferred securely, and managed appropriately.
It’s our job, and our passion, to build medical apps that provide a simple and enjoyable experience to the user, while correctly managing data in a secure and compliant manner on the backend.
Why We're Different
Topflight Apps is different from all other mobile app development companies because we focus heavily on healthcare applications. Being a specialized healthcare mobile app developer allows us to provide an above-par service to our clients that they won’t get from a jack-of-all custom software development company.
Mobile health apps are leading the way in enabling care providers to provide better services to their clients. Patient apps have changed how people communicate with their care providers. And likewise, electronic health records have tremendously improved record-keeping in healthcare institutions. Lab results, medical charts, and care plans can all be accessed from a mobile health app.
Medical device manufacturers now provide access to their data via API so you can build an app that tracks many of the metrics they provide. In most cases, you don’t need a specialized medical device to capture data. Even by just using the built-in hardware on mobile devices, a medical mobile app developer can create a mobile health app that provides accurate health information. Take a look at Google Fit, for example.
If you are in the Los Angeles area and want to drop by the office, you’re welcome to have coffee with us and discuss your app idea. Choosing a software developer or a healthcare app development company to bring your idea to life is a very important process that you need to spend quality time on. Often we’re asked whether we are an iPhone app developer or can do Android app development. The answer is yes to both questions. So if you need an iPhone app or Android app, we have you covered.
Although it would be great to start a project having every step completely mapped out, it’s rarely realistic. That’s why we have a process to start lean, iterate fast, and adapt to unexpected challenges to find and maintain market traction.
Transparency in Our Process:
How We Build Health and Medical Mobile Apps
This is how we’ll create your app
Before we develop any app, we make sure we’re creating medical applications that fits your business goals. First we create the blueprint that will serve as your guide to healthcare app we’re building. We detail the technology showing how the technical pieces fit together and what languages and services make the most sense long-term. We investigate APIs and code libraries and we assess if we need to use artificial intelligence, machine learning or blockchain technology. We do these to gauge the feasibility of app development and integration, and discover ways to accelerate product development.
Deliverables: functional specifications, high and low estimates for product development.
User Experience (UX) Design
Unlike other app development companies, we use rapid prototyping to build an optimal user experience. The prototype is a rough draft with just foundation and carpentry. But, it lets us iterate quickly and figure out what features will and won’t make it into your medical app based on the concept of a Minimum Viable Product. Our mobile app developers also jump in to find possible roadblocks and suggest alternative implementations to make sure we’re not “overdesigning” each health app we’re building.
Deliverables: interactive Invision prototypes to test with prospective customers.
User Interface (UI) Design
Now that we have our user experience locked down, we turn the project to our user interface designers who add the polish that makes it visually appealing. We bring to life how your mobile app will look and feel. Iconography, branding, animation, and other visual “magic” have long been documented to increase conversions. This is about making the story look and feel incredible so customers engage with your app.
Deliverables: sketch files, microanimations in Flinto, interactive Invision prototypes for user testing.
Coding and Programming
This is the point at which all the previous work comes together. Led by your product manager, our mobile app developers code the app according to Agile Development practices. We break up the backlog of tickets into 2-week sprints. We discuss tasks and write code with total transparency so you’re never left to wonder. At the end of the sprint, the product manager holds a check-in with you to update you on progress, demo the sprint, and report how we’re doing relative to estimates and timelines.
Deliverables: Github code commits, apps ready for testing on staging or testflight environment.
Quality Control and Testing
Now we conduct quality control testing internally and externally. We write unit tests, which are tests that automatically test new code as it’s written to make sure your mobile health apps function just the way you intend it to be. Next we perform beta testing along with our clients, to ensure that the site is working the way it was intended and according to the original story. We check for typos, broken links, security, forms, design compliance, mobile responsiveness, page loading speed, and anything else that a customer might experience, before moving to the most important part – listing the app to the app store.
Deliverables: Github code commits, apps ready for real customer engagement on production environment.
Launch and Beyond
Now that we have crossed the t’s and dotted the i’s, we launch your beautiful new app onto the Internet and app stores. Now you have the code to run your mobile health app and continue to fulfill your mission. It’s in the nature of the app store and the software to be ever-changing, thus most of our clients choose to retain us as a long-term development partner to support the app and make improvements over time.
We can address any bugs that arise, add enhanced microinteractions for user engagement, build new features from the roadmap, and maintain server health to handle growing user traffic.
