Arkenea's Telemedicine App 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.

Telehealth App Development FAQs
1. What are the core features to consider during telemedicine application development?
The must have features to include in telemedicine app development are patient-provider interactions through audio and video conferencing, patient history management, clinical documentation, EHR integration, appointment scheduling and calendar management.
In addition to these core features, HIPAA compliance needs to be baked into the backbone of custom telemedicine app being developed.
Here's a list of core functionalities, but not limited to, for each user type that would be interacting with the telemedicine application.
1. Patient signs consent form: The patient is able to give consent to the way their personal and health information will be used on the platform. The patient is able to eSign the consent forms to get medical documents signed on time so that healthcare-related pronouncements can be approved and implemented faster through HIPAA compliant electronic signature.

2. What are the typical costs of developing a telemedicine app?
Telemedicine app developers can charge anywhere from $50,000 to upwards of $300,000 depending on the features and complexities of the application being developed.
The development of a basic HIPAA compliant telemedicine application which only has doctor-patient interaction as its main offering will take less time and be considerably cost effective than developing a feature-rich application that has more functionalities and requires complex integrations.
The time required to develop such an application would also be higher, contributing to its costs.
3. What are the technology integrations for developing telemedicine software?
The custom developed telemedicine application needs to integrate with the existing software that your practice uses. This includes integration with EHR/EMR software, appointment scheduling software, billing software, etc. Additionally, remote patient monitoring devices and patient wearables can also be integrated with the telemedicine software being developed to ensure data driven healthcare delivery. Some of the other integrations would be to facilitate functionalities of video or audio calling using Zoom or Twilio. Telemedicine app developers like Arkenea also help its clients integrate third-party solution providers for ePrescription and even patient's insurance.
4. What key skills/experience must a telemedicine app development company have?
Specialization in the field of healthcare software development is something that one should look for when hiring a telemedicine application development company. A company like Arkenea has more than 10 years of experience working in the custom healthcare software development niche and is well versed in the compliance and regulatory requirements (HIPAA, HITECH, etc) involved in telemedicine app development. Partnering with a team that has expertise and knowledge, and has worked on developing telemedicine solutions in the past can set you up for success and ensure that the custom developed telemedicine software remains scalable, compliant and offers a superior user experience.
5. What are the different roles of a telemedicine app development team?
A multifunctional team is involved in telemedicine app development consisting of telehealth app developers, quality assurance team, business analysts, and project managers.
By following an Agile approach in software development, the team holds daily stand-ups to review the daily tasks and get resolution to queries in order to ensure scalable development.
Sprint demos are held on a bi-weekly basis where the clients get the demo of the telemedicine software being developed and give their feedback. The steering team also gets together on a monthly basis to review the progress and provide guidance to the development and operational teams.
6. What is the difference between Telehealth and telemedicine app development?
Telehealth encompasses a broader scope of remote healthcare delivery solutions. Telemedicine on the other hand is a subset of telehealth.
Telemedicine app development comprises real-time and store-and-forward applications for doctor patient interaction. Telehealth app development on the other hand also contains remote patient monitoring applications and mHealth apps in addition to conventional telemedicine application development.
