Empowering people with better, on-demand access to healthcare and real-time healthcare is in everyone’s interests — not just the public, but also the physicians, insurance companies, and businesses striving to provide better alternatives to traditional healthcare models.
At CitrusBits, our expertise in the healthcare and telehealth field has yielded award-winning healthcare mobile apps and technology partnerships that are making a difference for millions of people throughout the world.
An entire category of apps, called telehealth, exists and broadly entails making medical services available remotely, using mobile devices. Use cases include remote doctor visits using video chat, online prescription management, appointment scheduling, health monitoring, on-demand access to emergency health services, and much more.
CitrusBits is the longtime development partner of IrisVision, the leading vision rehabilitation system for people with vision impairments such as macular degeneration.
We are adept at integrating with most health and fitness related mobile platforms, including iOS HealthKit and Google Fit. Also, our team is able to integrate with EHR and EMR systems and other existing systems in your tech stack, either through existing APIs or by building custom APIs ourselves.
Preventive healthcare relies on giving people better visibility into their health, on demand.
What better way is there to do just that than by giving people 24/7 access to their vitals via a wearable health monitoring device? With today’s smartwatches now capable of measuring heart rates, performing ECG tests, and more, there is now a strong demand for apps that leverage these sensors to bring the promise of mobile health to fruition.
From health monitoring to clinical research studies, wearables and their supporting apps are poised to play a crucial role in healthcare going forward.
PATIENT PRIVACY & HIPAA COMPLIANCE
Securing protected health information and patient privacy is a critical requirement of any healthcare app — not just for HIPAA compliance, but for your users’ peace of mind. Our mhealth and health-related apps are built with security and privacy best practices in mind, protecting sensitive information both in transit and at rest.
