How to Build a Teledentistry Portal or a Teledentistry App?
The most basic resource you would require to deliver virtual dental consultation is a teledentistry app or portal.
It acts as a medium between patients and dentists & connects them seamlessly.
However, it is complex in functionality and your unawareness regarding how to build it makes it more complex.
So, let us explain to you the entire process of building it from scratch.
Phase #1: Discovery
In the discovery phase, you and your hired IT company assess your product’s market scope, what your idea is lacking, what can be done extra, potential risks, risk mitigation strategies, legal challenges, etc.
Phase #2: Documentation
Here, business analysts analyze the business domain, outline market needs, plan your product, and document each and everything of your teledentistry product – from features to compliance.
Phase #3: Workflows
A team of clinical professionals and IT professionals define the workflows of your online platform so that your platform delivers the exact same clinical experience and clinical value as in-person care.
Phase #4: UI/UX
UI/UX designers design the front end of the platform while keeping product workflows in mind. They make sure that patients receive an exceptional user experience with a clean and engaging design of the online platform.
Phase #5: Coding or Development
Finally, the most important part. Frontend developers code the frontend of the product whereas backend developers deal with servers, API, and database. While coding, they keep clean code architecture in mind to make code maintenance easy.
Phase #6: QA testing
QA engineers aggressively test the code written by developers to find out whether there are bugs or not. They apply the fusion of manual and automated QA testing methodologies to save QA costs, time, and effort.
Phase #7: Compliance audit
Compliance experts carry out technical compliance audits on the platform to make sure that all technical regulations of applicable healthcare laws are being followed and there are no privacy and security vulnerabilities.
Phase #8: Pilot
You now receive a live demo of how your developed telemedicine platform for dentists works with real users. You also get training for operating the admin panel and its features effectively for more profit.
Phase #9: Product launch
Finally, your platform is now launched. If it is a mobile app, it gets live on Android Play Store and Apple App Store. And if it is a web app, it gets live on WWW. Here, you also receive all credentials of the platform along with its source code.
Phase #10: On-going support
The support team of your hired tech company provides you with 2-3 months of free support and then paid support with either dedicated developers or an hourly support model to avoid any downtime of the system and keep upgrading it with market trends.
