While there have been significant positive changes on the patient side of the story, doctors and hospital administrators have a similar perspective on healthcare digitalization. With digital healthcare solutions, everything from hospital wait time management to EHR optimization becomes more efficient. Listed below are key features of mHealth apps.
It is one of the most important features of a patient-facing and doctor-facing app. The functionality allows patients' vital signs and health conditions such as blood pressure, calorie intake, pulse rate, blood sugar level, calorie intake, and so on to be monitored.
The functionality is a must-have feature for patient-facing healthcare apps. It enables them to request an appointment with their doctors while providing doctors with a comprehensive view of the appointments they must attend in a day. One of the primary advantages of mobile health apps in this category is that they eliminate the chaos of waiting room scheduling. There are apps, such as Zocdoc, that are built entirely around this feature set.
