Having a mobile presence is no longer just a “trend,” it is expected from consumers, and more of a need in today’s digital world. By 2020, it is predicted that the revenue from mobile app’s will be around $44.8 billion.
The evolution of mobility for the healthcare space has invited many mobile app development agencies to jumpstart their processes for healthcare software development solutions.
With almost 100,000 mobile applications related to fitness and healthcare in the mobile app store, it is obvious that there is a very high demand for Chicago app developers, especially one’s proficient in healthcare mobile app development.
The real question comes down to this:
The GSMA reported that by the end of 2017, mHealth and healthcare software solutions will reduce healthcare facility costs by $400 billion in developed countries.
Time is Money
mHealth can save countless hours, for both patients, and a healthcare facility, and in today’s era, ‘time is money’.
With the assistance of healthcare mobile app development, patients can fill out forms, schedule appointments, request prescription refills, and view treatment history, all via the internet.
Think about it, you can easily spend 20 minutes every time your at the doctor to fill out paperwork, and it can take hours to get ahold of your medical records via your doctor, and not online.
Less Resources Required
If patients are scheduling appointments through an app, requesting refills online, and asking their doctors a question through a web portal, less human resources will be required to run and maintain a doctors office or any medical facility.
Once an organization onboards a healthcare mobile application, a huge amount of time and money will be saved on human resources. What’s the need to have 4 people at the front desk of an office, if they are not being utilized?
It is also important that once an application is onboarded, that it is marketed to their patients so they use this technology to their full benefits.
Electronic Medical Records and Reports
Having access to your healthcare records, anywhere, anytime, allows less of a back-and-forth between patients and physicians. It allows individuals to access their information faster, and without the help of an office representative or a doctor.
Before technology was around, physicians and office-workers would have to enter a room with a lot of paper medical records:
Not only is time and money wasted in this, but it is extremely inefficient, as this space can be used for additional things. And if you’re looking at it from an eco-friendly point of view, having this much physical paper isn’t very earth-friendly. 80% of Americans obtain some of the health information online; if your healthcare facility doesn’t have a way for your patients to access their records via the internet, you’re behind the technology schedule!
