Need the Best Healthcare App Developers?

Healthcare mobile apps have made the lives of medical practitioners and patients better. Some healthcare apps allow web users to access and evaluate their health metrics, contact medical service providers, and book appointments.

Thinking of developing a healthcare app?

Rootstrap offers high quality medical and healthcare app development services.

The healthcare app development market is expected to hit $58.8 billion by the end of 2020. And it’ll nearly double to $102.35 billion by the end of 2023.

Healthcare apps are profitable. Consumers want to become and stay healthy, thanks to increasing health consciousness and the increasing costs associated with healthcare treatments.

Rootstrap has extensive healthcare app development expertise. We’re passionate about creating healthcare apps that cater to patients and address the inefficiencies of the healthcare system.

According to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, HIPAA compliance establishes national standards for the protection of health information and a national set of security standards for protecting certain health information that is held or transferred in electronic form.

The HIPAA law was enacted in 1996. The law outlines how medical practitioners can lawfully use and maintain protected health information (PHI). PHI is data collected that can be used to recognize a patient.

We make HIPAA compliant apps

HIPAA is used to protect the privacy and security of PHI.

Here’s what we do at Rootstrap to ensure that every healthcare app we develop is HIPAA compliant:

  • We use strong firewalls, encryption, and malware protection.
  • We limit access to databases where PHI is stored and maintained.
  • We suggest policies, provide documentation and training to ensure that your staff follows security standards.

Working with Rootstrap means your healthcare app will be 100% HIPAA compliant.

Why is HIPAA important?

We create healthcare apps that are easy to use

Before hiring healthcare app developers for your project, you should have full confidence in their ability to build an app that’s intuitive for your target users.

At Rootstrap our first priority is having a clear understanding of the problems the client wants to address with the app. We then define a target group and list out essential functions and features relevant to the users.

We collect all necessary data that may help us understand the target group along with functions and features the client desires. We avoid implementing features that don’t add much value to the app.

What we mean by “easy to use”

We work extremely hard to make the registration and sign-in process smooth and simple. We know that if users have to go through many pages and clicks to register or sign-in, they will resist using the app.

We take emergencies into account when creating healthcare apps for our clients.

For example, if an app is created to be used during emergency events, the user should have quick access to the doctor’s phone number and any other relevant, helpful information.

We only ask for the necessary information during the registration process. This may sound simple, but many healthcare app developers make the mistake of asking for additional personal information they don't need.

At Rootstrap, we develop your healthcare app to be safe and easy to use for your target users.

We make the UI of your

healthcare app appealing

A smartphone app needs to have a great design. It’s even more important for healthcare apps that have sensitive users.

If your users are older adults, they may have sensory impairments or other  disabilities. And what they see as visually appealing may be different from  the perception of other demographics.

How we do it

To create a successful healthcare application, we focus on what’s best for your target users.

We make the design of the app centered and clean. We use color schemes and fonts that are associated with your brand.

We avoid using vibrant colors for the healthcare apps we make for our clients. Instead, we choose a delicate, soothing color palette that makes users feel calm and comforted.

We also take colorblind users into account when developing UI for healthcare apps. We give them options to choose their preferred color.

By providing a variety of color options, we make all users feel seen and comfortable using your app.

We make healthcare apps for various platforms

Creating an excellent healthcare app for one device or platform is difficult. Building an app for multiple platforms at the same time is even more complicated. That’s why you need to hire dedicated healthcare app developers. Rootstrap has a dedicated team of talented healthcare mobile app developers.

We don’t create healthcare apps that are iOS-only or iOS-first because Android device users are increasingly growing. We create healthcare apps for both iOS and Android devices.

Some agencies use tools like React Native and Flutter to create cross-platform healthcare apps.

While these cross-platform tools are great at reducing the cost, they have their limitations. In certain situations, it’s good to use the native language to create the app.

We use Java and Kotlin to create Android apps. We use Objective-C and Swift to make iOS apps.

We do market research to learn about your target users

Having a great healthcare app idea isn’t enough. You need the right developer who can help you target a specific group of people who need the app.

Hiring the right developer who can target those users will save you a lot of time and money during the app development and launch stages.

The right medical app developer will plan the functionality and the design of your app around the very specific needs of your target users. They should also be ready and willing to work with you to find the best monetization model for the app.

Research is key to understanding your target market. The developer should be willing and able to learn about your industry, category, and competitors.

At Rootstrap, the first thing we do is figure out who we’re building the app for. We want to know who will use the app and how they’ll use it.

Knowing potential users helps us develop something they’ll use.

We guarantee the safety of the users’ data

Healthcare apps deal with sensitive, personal information. So, users’ data must be safe. The best healthcare app developers make sure that data collected through the app is secure.

The first step to ensuring data safety is using the strongest encryption available. Encryption is considered the most effective way to protect sensitive data.

At Rootstrap, we use various security approaches to ensure maximum data safety for our clients.

There are different kinds of attacks that hackers may use to steal sensitive information. We know and understand these various forms of phishing.

We enforce robust server-side control, ensure that data is securely stored to prevent data leakage, implement strong authentication and authorization, and more!

Rootstrap’s collaborative and well-balanced team of experienced healthcare mobile app developers can handle the most demanding requirements and help you create the product you envision. Our developers will become your true business partner helping you find solutions every step of the way.

We make HIPAA compliant apps that are easy to use and visually appealing. We develop for all platforms and devices while making sure we understand and serve your target market. We understand the importance of security, you can trust us to safeguard your app against data breaches by incorporating our robust security approaches.
