Med Check, a healthcare technology company, partnered with Calpar to develop Android and iOS applications that provide an electronic version of a patient’s medical history. The project involved the development of backend systems using PHP and MySQL, as well as native mobile application development for Android and iOS. Med Check aims to streamline access to medical information, automate administrative tasks, and improve clinician workflow. In this case study, we delve into the details of this transformative project and highlight the key features that have revolutionized the management of patient medical history.
Android and iOS Mobile Applications:
Calpar recognized the need for a robust and user-friendly mobile solution to effectively manage and access patient medical history. Native mobile applications were developed for both Android and iOS platforms, leveraging the specific features and capabilities of each operating system. The mobile applications provide a seamless and intuitive user experience for patients, allowing them to access and manage their medical information securely.
Electronic Medical History:
The Med Check mobile applications allow patients to maintain an electronic version of their medical history securely on their smartphones. The applications provide a comprehensive set of features, including the ability to store immunization details, progress notes, problems, medications, vital signs, past medical history, laboratory data, and dialysis reports. This electronic medical history empowers patients to have their health information readily available, improving care coordination and communication with healthcare providers.
Backend Systems with PHP and MySQL:
Calpar developed robust backend systems using PHP and MySQL to support the storage and management of patient medical data. The backend systems ensure data integrity, security, and scalability, allowing for efficient retrieval and updating of patient information. The use of PHP and MySQL provides a reliable and scalable infrastructure for storing and accessing medical history data.
Streamlined Workflow for Clinicians:
Med Check aims to streamline the workflow of clinicians by automating access to patient information. The mobile applications enable clinicians to easily access and review patient medical history, reducing the time spent on administrative tasks and improving overall efficiency. The streamlined workflow allows clinicians to focus more on patient care, enhancing the quality of healthcare delivery.
Secure Data Management:
Data security and patient privacy are paramount in healthcare applications. Calpar implemented robust security measures to ensure the confidentiality and integrity of patient data. Secure authentication protocols, data encryption, and compliance with industry standards such as HIPAA were implemented to protect patient information. These security measures instill confidence in patients and healthcare providers, ensuring the privacy of sensitive medical data.
Med Check has the potential to integrate with other care-related activities through various interfaces. Calpar developed the applications with the flexibility to connect with external systems, such as electronic health records (EHRs) or other healthcare applications. This integration capability allows for seamless information exchange and coordination of care across different healthcare providers and systems.
Result and Success:
The collaboration between Calpar and Med Check resulted in mobile applications that have revolutionized the management of patient medical history. The Android and iOS applications, coupled with robust backend systems, provide patients with a secure and convenient way to access and manage their medical information. The streamlined workflow for clinicians enhances their efficiency and improves patient care. The emphasis on data security and integration capabilities ensures the privacy of patient information and facilitates seamless information exchange within the healthcare ecosystem.
