The software commonly used by the healthcare industry to improve daily operations is termed healthcare software. In the medical field, there are two types of institutions, hospitals, and clinics. Though both institutions treat patients, software features requirements may vary. Hospitals possess several doctors and helping staff. While the clinics have a lesser number of human resources. This gap creates a difference in software requirements. Customized software is preferred nowadays to meet the exact and all the features required in the medical institution or the clinic of the doctor. Technology enhances the efficiency and ease of doing the works.
Following features should be included during custom medical software development:
- Patient Profiling – The patient profile in the medical software has two types of data, one is personal information and another is medical history. The medical history store the disease or symptoms and their corresponding diagnosis. These data help in future diagnosis. Software developers set security triggers and various levels of permissions to user types to make any change in the data available. These data are accessible to the doctors assigned only instead of the admin or other healthcare staff of the hospital. This feature of the software is important and the software development team takes utmost care during the whole development process. Whether the custom software is meant for a hospital or a clinic of an individual doctor, a patient profiling feature is demanded.
- Hospital Management – This part of the healthcare software consists of the administrative module of the hospital. Custom software developer provides different admin user types to access different software management sections of the custom software. The super admin can access all the sections of the custom healthcare software. The admin users can add, update and delete the data as easily as a single click. The hospital management software includes data of all medical or healthcare staff and inventory management section. This section of the software also includes a reporting section. Various reports are generated in this section and can be consulted as per the will for further use.
- Appointment Scheduling & Billing – It looks well-managed process if people visit healthcare institutions with an appointment. The appointment scheduling feature is basic functionality in the custom healthcare software. This works in real-time. A user interacts in the front-end and sees the available time slots on a particular date. The user chooses an appointment slot as per convenience and meets the concerned doctor. In the back-end, the medical staff views the appointments scheduled with user data. The hospital administration can re-schedule, postpone or cancel appointments from the back-end. Similarly, the billing functionality gets included in the medical software.
