Building a telehealth app can seem like a daunting task, but it can be a relatively straightforward process with the correct planning and execution and you can take a few different approaches, but the most common is to either build a custom telehealth platform or use one of the many available telehealth platforms.
If you decide to build a custom platform, you need to keep a few key things in mind like you need to make sure that the platform is HIPAA compliant which means ensuring that all patient data is securely stored, and that patient privacy is always protected. Another thing for you is to make sure that the platform is easy for both patients and providers and you need to make sure that the platform is scalable so that it can grow as your practice grows.
There are several existing telehealth platforms that you can use, and which one you choose will depend on your specific needs. Some platforms are more comprehensive than others, offering appointment scheduling, video conferencing, and electronic health records integration. Others are more basic, offering just the core functionality needed for providing care remotely. Ultimately, the best platform for your practice will be the one that best meets your needs.
