In an appointment booking app, the appointments needed to be dynamically added. For instance, if the doctor is unavailable on a particular Friday, the backend should update it immediately. We had to work on a simple algorithm that allowed the doctor to update their unavailability, which would also be out on the interface.
Slots had to be defined for particular doctors. For instance, if there are multiple doctors from different professions, we had to ensure they could add their slots/availability. At the same time, we had to ensure that new doctors coming to the system could easily add their available timings.
Technology stack used
The key features
Doctors and patients can create a detailed profile stating the requisite details to start.
Get reviews and ratings for the doctors that you are planning to visit for your needs.
Check availability, slots and other details for the doctor in a single calendar view.
Patients can book an appointment with the select doctor immediately by selecting the date and slot.
5Confirmation and Reminders
The app automatically sends reminders before the scheduled appointment. Patients will get the confirmation of the appointment.
Consult your doctor via chats if you don’t want to book an appointment and talk to them.
Get complete prescription records in the application and store it for future references.
Complete your payments immediately for the completed appointment from within the app.
Keep all your records in a single place, including the consultations for future references.
10Search and Filters
Search for the doctors using a quick search bar. Use smart filters to find the right doctor.
Solution We Proposed:
- A doctor appointment booking app development that allowed multiple doctors to list their services.
- Patients can choose the timing, doctor and date to schedule their appointment.
- The app would show the booked time/date unavailable for other patients.
- The app will store prescriptions and records for future use.
We proceeded with a simple and intuitive doctor appointment app development that helped in managing the doctor appointments seamlessly. The solution can help the patients compare the doctors and find the best fit for their requirements.
We enabled in-app payments with a simple checkout system for the patients. This enabled seamless transactions. The app could send out automated reminders to the patients, which solves many administration problems for the doctor.
For doctor appointment app development, we progressed from discovery to gathering the requirements. Once we were sure of what the app requires, we began building a plan to help us identify elements that are different from other apps.
We concluded on the features, determined the technology stack, identified the team we could work with for the app development, and segmented the app into phases.
Once we completed planning the application, we began designing and coding the application. Our testing team worked with the development team to deliver a bug-free and seamless application.
