Adnan Malik, CEO, CallingDr
"Medical healthcare should be accessible to everyone when they need it, regardless of their geographical location and environment.” This statement from Adnan Malik, the CEO of MyApps Developers, a Florida-based developer of mobile applications, portrays the hard-hitting truth of the healthcare industry in its most real form. Medical healthcare is a prerequisite for longevity and healthy life. But even today, there is a shortage of healthcare providers, especially in rural communities where they struggle to recruit and retain specialists. In the urban community, the convenience and time-saving factors associated with telemedicine are gaining more traction—the ability to get answers from the comfort of their homes without wasting time travelling or sitting in a waiting room. With a vision to nip these challenges in the bud and increase mobility in healthcare, MyApps Developers brought into the market the CallingDr and VisitingDr platforms. They provide device-agnostic solutions for physicians and patients, HD voice and video consultation between physicians and patients, self-service appointments, scheduling management and reminder capabilities with built-in clinical workflows and remote patient monitoring for enhanced patient care.
Being a complete telemedicine and mobile health platform for patient-doctor video consulting and remote patient monitoring, CallingDr was designed explicitly for healthcare providers, with a priority emphasis on seamless adoption of telemedicine into existing practices and electronic medical reports (EMR). The platform delivers all the features and functions required for a true point of- care, with a system architecture that can be integrated with the healthcare provider’s existing and future systems. “We emphasize on educating engaging networking and collaborating because we feel relationship building is important.
We first understand healthcare facilities culture and then offer a personalized solution to address any potential challenges including infrastructure evaluation, so that the providers have a smooth transition to telemedicine
We begin by understanding the culture at a healthcare facility and then offer a personalized solution to address any potential challenges, including infrastructure evaluation, so that the providers have a smooth transition to telemedicine,” asserts Malik.
CallingDr not only decreases the cost of healthcare by eliminating overheads and reducing the cost associated with unnecessary emergency room visits, it improves patient outcomes. Today, MyApps Developers aim to implement its platform on a larger scale, and the company is working with several hospitals and EMR companies to do just that. Not just this, the company is also working with various labs and home health-device companies to integrate its software, to ensure that they have a better reach among patients.
The company will soon be releasing its much-awaited FindingDr platform, which allows patients to connect to doctors of choice, whether using telemedicine or regular office visits. FindingDr is an online medical care appointment booking service, providing free of charge medical care search facilities for users by integrating information about medical practices and doctors’ individual schedules in a central portal. Currently, the company has doctors listed from 5 States, and it is gradually growing to include doctors from all 50. “If the healthcare provider is offering telemedicine services using the CallingDr platform, then that provider will be listed on top of the list, as a choice available for end-users to select, for a televisit or a regular visit,” explains Malik.
With the FindingDr platform, users will be able to search for doctors and healthcare providers based on location, speciality, and health insurance. It gives flexibility for end-users to find a healthcare provider of choice, at a time when they are available, and book a service effortlessly online. “It is a simple and efficient process that takes away the need to call or verify for an appointment,” states Malik.
