Telenursing App Developer
Telenursing, like any subdiscipline of telehealth, is experiencing explosive growth as more and more medical organizations are choosing to deliver healthcare remotely. Topflight Apps focuses on telenursing app development to empower hospitals and clinics to:
- address shortages of nurses
- lower the cost of administering care
- increase average daily census
- provide healthcare services to a broader audience
- control patient flow and prevent overcrowding
Healthcare providers opting for telemedicine nursing require secure telenursing apps that are easy to integrate into existing workflows.
To address the need, our telenursing app developers create flexible, HIPAA-compliant solutions that work cross-platform. The apps we build blend your medical expertise with our app design and development know-how in healthcare. Eventually, you get a telenursing app that can make a real impact on people’s lives.
Why Telenursing Matters
Telenursing can not only help clinics address the challenges of delivering quality care to underserved areas or rise to pandemics like COVID-19. Telenursing app development can also be crucial in a clinic setting. The scenarios for using telenursing apps may range from the triage of patients to diagnostics to consultations to patient monitoring to case management.
Besides, telenursing is indispensable in the nurse-healthcare professional and nurse-nurse interactions, helping healthcare providers overcome the barriers of distance and time.
We can develop a HIPAA-compliant telenursing app to help you optimize the use of your medical resources. Depending on your specific needs, it can be a web or mobile solution, and most often a combination of both.
When working on a telemedicine nursing app, Topflight Apps goes beyond developing video/ audio conferencing and instant messaging features. We build on our expertise in IoT and connect your telenursing app with peripheral medical devices to give you a 360-view of your patient.
Our Healthcare Clients
Cloud Telenursing App Development
Topflight Apps builds telenursing apps that seamlessly work in a browser like any regular web application, e.g., Gmail or Dropbox. The large screen real estate allows us to not only accommodate a videoconferencing and messaging panes but also display EHR notes or a nurse reference book, etc.
We connect telenursing apps to EMR/EHR systems using FHIR or HL7 standards, making sure protected health information (PHI) remains secure as per the HIPAA regulations.
Mobile Telenursing App Development
A mobile telenursing app is an essential part of any telemedicine experience because nurses walk, on average, 5 miles during a typical 12-hour shift. And being able to address patients’ needs regardless of their whereabouts with a smartphone or tablet telenursing app can save a lot of time.
At Topflight Apps, we work with both Android and iOS mobile platforms and also make sure that web telenursing apps we develop are responsive and operate flawlessly in mobile browsers. Our team of mobile telenursing app developers focuses on ease of use and security when implementing telemedicine features.
One other aspect of telemedicine nursing apps we treat seriously is integration with IoT medical devices and sensors. They feed vital biometric patient data into a telenursing app to make sure nurses can monitor a patient’s heart rate, blood pressure, respiration, oxygen levels, blood glucose, and other critical health signals. To protect this patient data, we follow the IEC 62304 standard and encrypt data as it travels between devices.
Our passion for building top-notch mobile experiences and the insights we’ve gained serving the healthcare industry since 2015 translate into outstanding mobile telenursing apps.
What Sets Us Apart
Topflight Apps differs from other mobile app development companies by zealously focusing on building healthcare apps. Being an experienced healthcare app developer allows us to offer outstanding telenursing app development services to our clients, which they can’t get from a regular we-do-it-all software development company.
Mobile healthcare apps and telenursing apps, in particular, are leading the way in empowering care providers to serve their clients better. Telehealth nursing is changing how nurses communicate with patients and colleagues. Video and audio calls, messaging, and other features found in telenursing apps have significantly improved access to healthcare for many vulnerable groups.
Medical devices welcome access to the data they track via APIs. So you can develop a telenursing mobile app that monitors many of the metrics the medical devices offer. And quite often, you don’t even need special medical hardware to capture patient data. Instead, you can use the built-in hardware on a smartphone or tablet and have a medical app developer like Topflight create a mobile telenursing app that provides accurate health information.
If you are in the Los Angeles area and want to drop by our office, you’re welcome to have coffee with us and discuss your app idea. Choosing a software development partner or a healthcare app development company to realize your app idea is an ultra-important process that demands some quality time. We quite often hear questions about whether we develop telenursing apps for iPhone or can also do Android. The answer is yes, we cover both mobile platforms as well as desktop and web.
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 Medical Apps for Telenursing
Before we build any telenursing app, we make sure we’re developing medical apps that fit your business goals. We start with a blueprint that serves as a visual guide to the telenursing app we’re building. We go into detail about the technology showing how the technical aspects of the app fit together and what tech stack is the most appropriate long-term. We verify APIs and code libraries, and we assess if your solution calls for the use of artificial intelligence, machine learning, or blockchain.
Deliverables: requirements specifications, range estimate for product development.
User Experience (UX) Design
While many other app development companies jump to development, we choose rapid prototyping as the next step to create an optimal user experience. The prototype is a draft version of the telenursing app, with just foundation and carpentry. But, it allows us to iterate and figure out the features that will make it into your telenursing app, based on the MVP concept. Our telenursing app developers join this round to identify possible roadblocks and suggest alternatives so that we’re not “overdesigning” each health app we’re developing.
Deliverables: clickable Invision prototypes to test with customers.
User Interface (UI) Design
After we have locked down the app’s user experience, we hand over the prototype to our UI designers, who do the magic that makes the app visually appealing. We bring to life the actual look and feel of your mobile telenursing app. It definitely helps that we’ve already documented iconography, animation, color branding, and other visual “magic” that increases conversions. This step is all about making your telenursing app look and feel incredible for the customer.
Deliverables: design files, micro animations, interactive Invision prototypes.
Coding and Programming
This step is the focal point of the project that brings together all the previous work. Led by your product manager, our telenursing app developers program the app’s code using Agile principles. We break up the backlog with tasks into 2-week sprints. All communications and code writing are totally transparent, so you always know what’s happening on the project. Each sprint ends by the product manager holding a check-in meeting with you updating you on the progress, presenting the demo, and reporting how the team is doing relative to timelines and estimates.
Deliverables: code in Github, beta versions of apps ready for testing in a staging environment.
Quality Control and Testing
At this step, we conduct QA testing internally and externally. Our developers write unit tests that automatically verify new code to make sure your telenursing app functions the way you want it to. Besides unit tests, we perform beta testing with our clients, making sure that the app is working the way it was specked out and prototypes. We check for typos, bad links, security issues, branding compliance, responsiveness, loading speed, and everything else that a customer might experience.
Deliverables: code commits, customer-ready apps in a production environment.
Launch and Beyond
Now we are 100% ready to launch your new telenursing app to the App Store and Google Play. In addition, you get well-commented code to run your mobile telenursing app and continue to provide quality healthcare services at any distance. The app stores and software are designed to be ever-changing. Thus many of our clients choose to work with us on a long-term basis letting us develop and support their telenursing app, making improvements over time.
We’re ready to address any app issues, elevate user engagement with micro interactions, develop new features from the app’s roadmap, and maintain the server to handle increasing traffic.
