Custom HIPAA compliant telemedicine app development in Canada to actualize secure and integrated virtual healthcare like Writi
Canada’s publicly-funded healthcare system is the world’s one of the most prominent healthcare systems. According to the Legatum Institute, the Canadian healthcare system is among the best.
One of the reasons why Canada is leading the chart is the early and quick adoption of the technology.
In 2003, the Canadian government decided to improve timely access to quality care and to achieve it, they launched an action plan named Accord. In Accord, they put emphasis on information technology e.g., electronic health records and telemedicine.
Talking about telemedicine in Canada, it has successfully revolutionized the way doctors treat patients. Considering its benefits, the government is promoting telemedicine solutions in Canada.
Recently, the Ontario government announced the expansion of telemedicine or telehealth provincial resources.
Sensing the opportunity, if you want to develop a telemedicine app in Canada but not sure about the business strategies and telemedicine app development strategies, you have come to the right place.
In this blog, We will share everything which you should keep in mind to successfully plan, develop, and deploy the telemedicine app. We will also share how we, SyS Creations, have successfully planned and executed business and development strategies for top Canadian telemedicine app – Writi.
Usefulness of the telemedicine app
High availability of medical services
Telemedicine app seamlessly provides healthcare services to patients who are living in remote places and cannot find easy access to clinics. It also enables patients living in urban cities to access the healthcare service through their mobile phone, without visiting clinics.
Time-efficient medical care
A telemedicine app facilitates patients and healthcare workers to connect to each other through the mobile phone. In-built communication features like chat, voice call, and video call dramatically reduce the time a doctor requires to provide treatment to a patient. This app also saves a lot of time for healthcare workers.
Easy and secure access to patient data
In a telemedicine app, each patient has his individual profile where patients and doctors both can store data of patients and their medical history. This feature makes it very painless to access crucial data of a patient’s medical history during health emergencies. Moreover, a telemedicine app must be HIPAA compliant to ensure patient data privacy and security.
It keeps healthcare workers away from infected patients
This is a very significant advantage of telemedicine app. While treating patients having a contagious disease like COVID-19, the healthcare workers are at the greatest risk. But a telemedicine app allows them to treat the patients having a contagious disease remotely.
