The healthcare industry is experiencing tremendous changes today. Embracing digital innovations into medical practice provides incredible opportunities for improving medical care and enhancing the health of people. The growing awareness of what the technology is capable of pushes forward the expectations, so that both medical organizations and patients now crave for new IT systems that can ensure frictionless patient-doctor relationship, secure healthcare data monitoring and give patients better control over their wellness.
Maximilian Kerz, CEO and founder of the London-based startup Vivum Health, realized the growing need for a tool to facilitate access to patient medical records. Maximilian decided to create a platform that streamlines medical record keeping, allows patients to control their healthcare data and share it with medical professionals across multiple healthcare providers.
Our devs were involved in building a part of this system - the Clinician App. We were responsible for the development the front-end side of this medical app and we were delighted to apply our skills to bring this great product to life!
What is Vivum Health's Clinician App?
The Clinician App is a web application for healthcare professionals where all vital patient data, including symptoms, measures and medication, is presented in an intuitive and functional dashboard. Having all relevant medical information organized in a single interface enables doctors to make more informed diagnosis and treatment decisions, helps them monitor patient progress and lets deliver improved patient care pathways. The app facilitates overall patient-doctor collaboration, minimizes risks, costs and drives better treatment outcomes.
