Problem Statement

  • Patients face long wait times and difficulties in scheduling appointments with healthcare providers, leading to delays in receiving necessary medical care.
  • The traditional appointment booking process is often cumbersome and inefficient, requiring phone calls or visits to medical facilities, resulting in frustration for both patients and staff.
  • Limited access to real-time appointment availability information makes it challenging for patients to find suitable appointment slots that fit their schedule.
  • Missed appointments and last-minute cancellations contribute to inefficiencies in healthcare resource utilization and can result in longer wait times for other patients.
  • Lack of centralized information about healthcare providers' availability, specialties, and patient reviews makes it difficult for patients to make informed decisions when selecting a provider.
  • The absence of automated appointment reminders leads to forgetfulness and further contributes to missed appointments, impacting patient care continuity and overall healthcare efficiency.

Goal Statement

  • Implement an intuitive mobile application that allows patients to easily browse, schedule, and manage their medical appointments from the convenience of their smartphones.
  • Provide real-time visibility into healthcare providers' schedules, enabling patients to quickly identify available appointment slots that align with their preferences and schedules.
  • Offer automated appointment reminders via push notifications or SMS to reduce the likelihood of missed appointments and improve patient attendance rates.
  • Incorporate a comprehensive database of healthcare providers, including information on specialties, locations, credentials, and patient reviews, to facilitate informed decision-making for patients.
  • Enable seamless communication between patients and healthcare providers through secure messaging features within the app, allowing for easy appointment rescheduling, inquiries, and updates.
  • Implement features for patients to easily cancel or reschedule appointments, reducing the occurrence of last-minute cancellations and optimizing healthcare resource utilization.
  • Integrate electronic health record (EHR) systems to streamline patient check-in processes and provide healthcare providers with access to patient information prior to appointments, enhancing the quality of care delivery.
