Arkenea's Telemedicine Software Development Case Studies
Feelya Telemedicine App
Arkenea helped increase sales revenue by rearchitecting the Feelya telemedicine application.
We helped revise the user experience of the mental health telemedicine application to increase user engagement. We redesigned and built a new client and therapist journey that would be more attractive and easy to use. We also revamped the patient-physician booking process to make it more efficient. The end result was increased client and therapist registrations, driving their revenues north.
Patients can create a profile, search for physicians/therapists in a specific location, choose their preferred therapist, schedule a consultation, conduct the entire consultation via messaging or video and also seamlessly pay for the entire therapy session on the telemedicine app that Arkenea developed.
United Medical Group Telemedicine Application
We helped UMG scale their multi-practice setup by leveraging telemedicine to include physician contractors.
Arkenea helped UMG build a web-based telemedicine application for patients to consult with physicians and specialists on-demand, with transparent and straightforward unified pricing where the patient pays in cash and not with insurance. This telehealth software has full specialty support by UMG physicians from Internal Medicine, Infectious Disease, Pulmonology, Cardiology, Wound Care, Nephrology, Gastroenterology, Pediatrics, Behavioral Health and more.
Some of the unique features of UMG’s telemedicine application include on-demand and scheduled visits, one time visit link that will expire after the visit and referral for affiliated physicians clinics for in person evaluation or testing, among others.
TeleMedHome Telemedicine Application
Arkenea helped bring TeleMedHome’s telehealth software MVP to market quickly for faster iterations.
We helped create a detailed blueprint and architecture of the telemedicine application for the physician-entrepreneur team of TeleMedHome. With the initial prototype development, we were able to design and develop the first version (MVP).
This telemedicine mobile application connects patients with their caregivers, medical providers, health coaches and care managers. It fosters an easy 2-way communication between the patient and the physician, promotes provider to provider communication and secure HIPAA-compliant text/image/video exchange. This telemedicine mobile application promotes care plan compliance and medication adherence.
