The Virtual Clinic App and EIT Health UK-Ireland

I have some exciting news to bring to you regarding our innovative Virtual Clinic app. We are using the opportunity to show the potential of this powerful Virtual Clinic to those at EIT Health Uk-Ireland! Here we can show off the amazing possibilities this app can have for patients. Especially those with long-term or life-long conditions that need long-term management and observation.

So what’s happening with the Virtual Clinic app?

We have been selected, along with 23 other candidates to show off our Virtual clinic application to panels of judges to see who can do some real good in the health industry and which 7 participants deserve the funding to move forward in production and into even real world application!

Imobisoft will be visiting IBM’s Technology campus in Dublin, Ireland to pitch them our new app and the reasons why it would be worthy of their funding. We only have a short window to pitch them our idea but I sure you can agree the concept speaks for itself and it won’t be hard to sell them on what advancements in patient care this could provide.

What does it mean?

This is a real step forward for us as it can finally allow us to demonstrate how it can help patients, doctors and nurses in a number of daily tasks but also can provide easier access and a more thorough standard assessment to make sure patients and physicians miss nothing out.

You hear a lot of the news lately how patients have had bad experiences when receiving health care, or checks had been ignored or forgotten about, and with the mounting pressure on clinicians its no surprise, however with our app how amazing would it be if you could simply report your progress on an app to the doctors, and bring up any issues you have with them right then and there.

How does it help?

The Doctor or clinician would open up your daily report on the virtual clinic and see where you are on the scales. This will show them if they need to take any actions or discuss with you any changes or concerns they have. It will also allow them to look at your condition as a whole and see your progression.

It will also allow clinicians to relay information or guidance back to the patients about changes or information about their conditions to help educate or improve their lives and how there affected, all through the Virtual Clinic.

Planning ahead

So we passed the first round of judges. Now it’s onto the second. We’re putting together a pitch to really knock their socks off in the hopes of getting funding for the project. Hopefully leading to the implementation of this application in Birmingham’s children hospital and beyond.

I will update you on the outcome of the pitch as soon as I know.

Now we just have to keep our fingers crossed!

There are growing number of businesses who are understanding the need of using mobile Apps in their day to day activities. Lot of our clients are open to the idea of using Mobile Apps for certain tasks in their business as they can see the increase in efficiency, easy to use and more over cost saving. We recently developed a product for field sales and maintenance companies which is undergoing pilot trial with one of our client who has the need for this kind of Mobile application. In short mobile app is a great way to streamline business operations.

Why Mobile Apps ?

Mobile applications are becoming increasingly popular in today’s market place thanks to the rapid emergence of smart phones, such as the iPhone and Androids , coupled with the increasing popularity of tablet computers and similar devices. Such devices are not only easy to carry and mobile, but also allow for a level of convenience that has not previously been available to business owners.

What’s the Market?

According to recent reports over 50 % of people over the age of 16 in the UK alone have a smartphone with internet access as their main mobile phone. This number is ever increasing as smartphones of various types become the norm, meaning that the market is ripe for mobile applications for this new market of potential consumers.

During the course of 2013,  millions of mobile applications were downloaded by smartphone users, generating a download revenue of  over a billion . This number is only set to increase as the technological wave continues to carry smartphones and related devices to the forefront.

How can it Benefit my Business?

Mobile apps can benefit businesses in any number of ways. If you have a product to sell, a mobile compatible website with related e-commerce functionality allows people to buy your products on the move. Should you wish to develop an app to be sold, this can be done and placed onto the relevant mobile market, where it will continue to generate profit for you.

Additionally private mobile applications for use within a business can help reduce the amount of paperwork a company needs to undertake. Systems can be created to track orders, email invoices and ensure all documentation is in place. This replaces the archaic paper based system that many companies still use and allows for lower costs.

Are they easy to use?

The beauty of mobile applications is that they are developed with user accessibility in mind. We live in a fast-paced world that is constantly looking for increased levels of convenience and a good mobile application can provide this. User friendliness is key so all mobile applications developed by iMobisoft are simple on the front end. All the complexity of the software is hidden form the user.

Anything Else?

Of course. Another massive advantage of a mobile application is that, once uploaded to the relevant market, they are available all over the world. If you have an application with potential global appeal, such as a game, you have a ready-made, constantly increasing market that can find your product instantly.
