What is Mobile App Development?

The process of development of any application for mobile phone or tablet with Android or iOS operating systems is Mobile App Development. These applications might come pre-installed in your phones, or you can install them from Play Store or App Store.

Healthcare software solution for intraoperative neuromonitoring

When our client Mr. Jene Boucher came up with his problem about the inadequacies of healthcare software solutions in the intraoperative neuromonitoring sector, and the inefficiencies, hindrances it is causing to the medical staff, we at Sunflower Lab understood their requirement and worked extensively to meet both ends.

The constant struggle of keeping and maintaining patient and extensive records was solved by partnering with Sunflower Lab and creating ZinniaX IONM, an ultimate app that would assist in managing the entire IONM lifecycle like scheduling appointments, updating and maintaining medical health records and safeguarding patient consent documents and signatures.

We created a HIPPA-compliant app that served several issues. Some features of the application are as follows:

  • SaaS platform that automated a secured process and storage of electronic medical records (EMR).
  • Automated scheduling and data capture through OCR decreases the time taken by hospital staff in uploading new patient records and schedule appointments.
  • Instead of carrying hard copies, the platform contains soft copies of real time data which can be accessed anytime and anywhere.
  • Through proper business analytics, the overall productivity is tracked, which provides a good idea of the patient satisfaction ratio and the revenue that can be expected.

This application changed the future of the healthcare industry making everything from prescribing patients to looking at their past records easy and simple.
