Telemedicine App Developers
Topflight develops premium-quality telemedicine services to push back the frontiers of remote healthcare. The telemedicine platforms we build empower healthcare professionals to improve and even save people’s lives by bridging the gap between doctors and patients.
We’re fully committed to steamroller the medical system to the next level, where it can effectively meet the raising demand for value-based medicine. By working with healthcare startups and established medical organizations, such as Medable, Stanford Medicine, Athcorp, and ARA Genomics, we propel the use of telemedicine services in dermatology, psychiatry, cardiology, and many other health disciplines.
Our telemedicine app development and design teams focus on crafting the perfect user experience balancing patients’ expectations and needs of medical staff. Topflight has been mastering healthcare apps development since 2015, and we are ready to blend our expertise with your insights to develop top-performing telehealth solutions.
Why Telehealth App Development Services Matter
Telemedicine application development services have become priority #1 for Topflight long before the COVID-19 outbreak. Not only do telehealth apps make it easier to serve patients over the distance, but they are also essential in bringing down the cost of health care. Replacing hospital/ patient visits with videoconferencing and messaging fastens healthcare delivery as well.
In times when value-based care is becoming the focal point of the healthcare industry, telehealth services can become a solid basis for improved patient outcomes.
As a telemedicine app development company, we cover the whole spectrum of telemedicine solutions: from teledermatology to teledentistry to teleneurology to ob-gyn telemedicine to telepharmacy to teleoncology to telesurgery to telecardiology to telenursing to teleophthalmology to telerehabilitation to telepathology to telenephrology to telepsychiatry.
Our telemedicine services developers use the state-of-the-art WebRTC technology and off-the-shelf streaming libraries and SDKs like Agora to enable low-latency one-on-one and group video chat features. We architecture telemedicine solutions so that their users experience zero quality degradation even in troubled network conditions.
Our Healthcare Clients
Cloud Telemedicine Software Development Services
Cloud-based telemedicine apps connect medical personnel and patients using only a web browser. While the web platform democratizes access to doctor examinations and health check-ups for patients, it also imposes serious technology challenges on telehealth application developers during website development.
When developing a telemedicine solution, the responsive layout is our top-of-mind priority to ensure that the product will work in mobile browsers. Another aspect we, as healthcare developers, often tackle with web-based telehealth apps is interoperability. Our telehealth software development services include working with FHIR and HL7 data protocols to integrate telehealth solutions with EHR platforms.
Telemedicine Mobile App Development
Telemedicine mobile apps for iPhone and Android allow doctors to be always within reach and set up live conferences virtually on the go, whether they need to consult with colleagues or tend to a patient. Smartphone and tablet optimized applications with telehealth features ensure frictionless experience and often operate as an extension to a cloud telemedicine solution.
Some of the most common features in a mobile telemedicine app include: doctor appointments, protected video calls, real-time chat, EHR/EMR integrations, e-prescriptions, HIPAA-compliant PHI data transmission, mobile payments, integrations with peripheral medical devices.
Topflight develops telemedicine solutions for iOS, iPad OS, and Android, working efficiently with the platform-specific SDKs: HealthKit and Google Fit. Our telemedicine services developers are well versed in implementing robust and secure mobile telehealth solutions.
Why Topflight Apps?
Topflight specializes in healthcare app development. We are proud to have worked with such companies as Medable, Stanford Medicine, Cleveland Clinic, and many others, helping them release top-performing healthcare applications. We believe that value-based medicine goes hand in hand with a comprehensive digital strategy and help healthcare organizations form it by developing integrated telemedicine services.
We’re building telemedicine solutions that can withstand a drastically increased demand and scale up dynamically as more users onboard your product. To achieve this, Topflight uses time-tested cloud technologies like Amazon’s AWS, Google Cloud, or Microsoft Azure, which provide HIPAA compliance as a service. Coupled with WebRTC-based technologies like Agora SDK, among others, this tech stack allows us to provide ultra-low latency, which means your telemedicine app users will remain connected despite network issues.
AI and Machine Learning are essential elements of a modern telemedicine solution. We apply our knowledge of AI algorithms and neural networks to enable preventive care capabilities, such as smart symptom tracking and mental health management. Whether you are dealing with healthcare staff shortages or want to maximize your patient throughput capacity with a chatbot, we’ve got you covered.
At Topflight, we preach and practice user-centered design in our custom mobile app development process. Our framework for UX & UI development involves learning your target audience, their needs, and preferences. We then meticulously verify our assumptions with user testing and incorporate their feedback. Whether designed for medical workers or patients, the telemedicine apps we develop have intuitive UI and effectively solve business/user tasks.
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:
Telehealth App Development Process in Our Company
We start developing a telemedicine services app by aligning the specifications of the telehealth app with your business goals. As the very first step, we create low-fidelity mockups and use them as a visual reference to the product we’re developing. Our coding team provides technology recommendations applying the long-term product vision. We comb through available commercial and open-source APIs, SDKs, code libraries, and other components looking for development shortcuts. Finally, we evaluate potential Artificial Intelligence and ML enhancements for your telemedicine solution.
Deliverables: SRS, app estimate
Unlike other software development agencies that start coding as soon as an SRS is ready, our telemedicine software development company goes into the prototyping mode. A prototype is a clickable app model made of wireframes — a carcass of the future application. Its purpose is to ideate app features and user journeys. Our telemedicine services development team also reviews the prototype to ensure that it is architecturally consistent and can be realized with the existing tech stack.
Deliverables: Clickable app prototypes
Once the prototype is ready, our design team steps in and creates an engaging high-fidelity UI. This phase of a telehealth project includes ideation of all visual elements of the solution: from menus to buttons to fonts to animations to static imagery. Our UI team works on iconography, color branding, and other app visuals that affect conversions. The end goal is to update the interactive prototype with high-fidelity designs and make sure users feel comfortable navigating “the app.”
Deliverables: design assets, high-fidelty prototypes.
This is a culminating phase of the project that combines the results of all previous steps. Our telemedicine services development team starts coding the app’s features using an Agile framework based on by-weekly sprints. Throughout the development process, we maintain complete transparency giving you access to tools that monitor the progress of each feature development. A dedicated product manager updates you on the project pace after each sprint and demos the app’s beta versions.
Deliverables: app code, beta versions
Even though we test intermediate results during app development, once the telemedicine app has been built, we carry out another major QA round. Topflight telemedicine app developers program automated tests that test features at the code execution level. That’s also the step when we ask as much feedback from the customer as possible, advising them to check all potential use cases. Besides that, our team QAs how fast the app loads, carries out stress tests, looks for typos, brand consistency, responsiveness, and a ton of other issues that might harm the UX.
Deliverables: source code, a ready for deployment app
As the final step, we release the telemedicine app to the mobile stores and production cloud hosting. In addition, we supply the app’s code so you can maintain full control over its future — for any updates or fixes. Often, our customers prefer to continue working with our telehealth application development company long-term. Such collaboration allows us to seamlessly update the app to support the latest software and OS upgrades, so our clients don’t have to worry about app maintenance.
