In year’s gone by, patients had a strictly formal relationship with their doctors. The doctor would recommend a course of treatment, medication or surgery to a patient, and it was then up to the patient whether they wanted to proceed with it. However, the relationship between patients and doctors today looks very different – and patient engagement app development is just one of the reasons why.
Digitisation in healthcare is transforming this traditional model of care, making these interactions more collaborative, cost-effective and efficient for all involved. This change in approach has been accelerated by the onset of the Covid-19 pandemic, where patients and physicians had to adapt to cope with increased demand and unforeseen challenges.
Today, patient engagement app development is a key driving force in managing everything from electronic health records to repeat prescriptions, all of which impact the patient experience – and this is where our vast experience at 6B can help.
The reality is, that if you want to free up clinical staff from completing administrative tasks so they can focus on administering care, whilst putting patients in control of their treatment, you need a robust, secure and engaging mobile app that enables the provision of telehealth created by a digital agency that knows what they’re doing.
