Providing better customer experience to the patients and improving decision making through use of data.
The client wanted to build an advanced appointment management system, mobile apps on iOS and Android and replace the older website with a dynamic web portal.
They approached Innovantes to develop a scalable and robust technology platform.
Design of the Appointment Management System was the most challenging task. The client had specific requirements with respect to the Appointment Management system.
The data security was also of prime importance and a challenging task.
Detailed discussions were initiated with the client leadership to understand the requirements, finalizing the UI and UX of the website and apps and process flows for the appointment management system.
Various metrics to be captured and included in the reports were studied and selected. The categories of reports were identified to be included in the dashboard- Patient footfall, comparison of future and past appointments, speciality and department-wise utilizations, footfall, average consultation times etc.
We used a combination of Hybrid and Agile methodologies to develop the solution.
A Phase-wise approach was planned to roll out the solution:

Phase 3 - Mobile apps on iOS and Android along with an advanced Content Management System.
