Let’s take a look at a detailed breakdown of each stage.
1. Analysis and planning
We start telemedicine app development with project analysis and planning. This stage involves close cooperation with stakeholders to identify the following points:
- Business challenges
- The best solutions for the challenges
- The best timeline and budget for the project
The main goal of this stage is to create a basic telemedicine app development project plan. Our clients get an overview of all works and resources involved in the development and decide on future work with our company.
Key deliverables: plans alignment, project timeline, cost estimation
2. Project requirements
To estimate the project scope, timeline, specialists involved, and the approximate budget, the team identifies the following points:
- The target audience
- Which problems the telemedicine software will solve
- Technical specifications and possible APIs integrations
- Security and privacy issues
The main goal of this stage is to get a full overview of the project that our team will be working on together with the client and the alignment of the assigned team with project requirements.
Key deliverables: contract agreement with details like timing, cost, and requirements.
3. Prototyping and design
At this stage, the actual work on your telemedicine project starts.
Designers draft wireframes that define in-app user flow and interactions during this stage. The main goal is to create a prototype that will provide a great user experience.
After the interface layout is finalized with our client, designers move on to creating an app’s user interface. At the end of this stage, we deliver an app design concept.
Key deliverables: UX wireframes, UI design, telemedicine app concept
Based on the requirements, tech stack, features, and design, the team of developers handles the development process, supported by the product manager and a team of software QA engineers. The first release is an MVP product for the user acceptance test.
Key deliverables: the first working version of an app or full-fledged telemedicine platform.
5. Testing and QA
It is a mandatory stage of the development process. Quality assurance engineers thoroughly test the whole functionality of an app to ensure a high quality of code, performance, and smooth user experience.
Key deliverables: telemedicine app ready for deployment
Once the telemedicine app development stage is finalized, it is time to launch a new product to the market. Our team can provide the client with the app’s source code or manage the entire process and publish your telemedicine app on relevant app stores based on project requirements.
Key deliverables: telemedicine software on app stores
7. Ongoing development and support
Once your app had been successfully launched to the market, the process of telemedicine app development continues. The main requirement for staying competitive is to provide regular updates, bug fixes, and improvements in functionality. Based on the analytics data that you collect after the app launch, together with our client, we plan for further updates and releases.
Key deliverables: app updates, guaranteed performance, and timely functionality improvements
