Patient Acquisition: 3 Roadblocks and How You Can Fix Them

For the past decade or so, healthcare organizations have been using various digital marketing mediums to acquire patients. This has worked well to a certain extent, but keep in mind that retaining their interest is another major factor of patient acquisition that cannot be ignored. These days, however, companies are taking a more strategic approach to patient acquisition and this involves nurturing their patients. This way, healthcare providers can align their services to the patient’s needs and simplify the steps to accessing proper healthcare. 

That is why we have gathered three unique ways to make patients happy and this involves simplifying the appointment process.

  1. Patient Schedules: Telehealth has been the talk of the town ever since COVID-19 approached. Of course, this is mostly due to everything going remote, but patients are liking the flexibility with scheduling. Nurses, assistants, and doctors can communicate with patients, providing more hands-on care to patients, which is beneficial for both the patient and the doctor. 

Telehealth makes patient scheduling easy in a number of ways. One, many telehealth systems allow patient self-scheduling which eliminates the need for the patient to call their healthcare provider. Two, there is no lobby wait time and three, the patient does not have to spend a penny on transportation costs.

There are quite a few benefits for the healthcare providers as well with telehealth, and one of the greatest benefits is that there are a lot less no-show patients since you have simplified the process for them. 

  1. Simplify the form process: One of the main frustrations that patients have with the current healthcare system is that they have to fill out the same data regarding their personal and healthcare info multiple times. (ex. medical history forms, insurance forms, etc.) A patient may fill out the data online and again in the doctor’s office, which can be a pain. Why not just have all the forms accessible online in a secure healthcare portal? The patient only has to fill them out once, and the other end-users, whoever they may be, can easily access them through the portal. This is another way to reduce lobby wait time and patient frustration due to appointment processes being unnecessarily complicated. 
  1. Help patients help themselves: Speaking of online portals, there are ways that you can offer additional help to patients even when they are not at your office. You can offer additional informative materials and personalized info which you only need to add to their patient portal. Patients can then refer to these to look after their health. The more you allow patients to help themselves, the more they will appreciate you. This is also another way to build credibility as it will showcase that you truly care for the patient and want them to stay on track even when they are away from you. 

Many doctors and physicians believe that all they need to do is use patient acquisition marketing strategies through various mediums and then they are good to go. They are wrong. Do not underestimate the power of technology to satisfy your patients. An investment in telehealth, patient portals, and/or more can do wonders to make your patients stay, and you can then easily secure another appointment with them.

Everything You Need to Know About e-Prescribing

With the different telehealth measures being put into place by doctors, physicians, and other healthcare providers, a number of them are looking into e-Prescribing. However, it is not that simple. Every state has its own regulations with e-Prescribing and you have to meet these laws before you can start taking part in the practice. The good news is that the healthcare industry is seeing an upward trend when it comes to prescribing from afar. 

ePrescribing rates went from 1.49 billion in 2017 to 1.79 billion in 2019. This means that the total rate of ePrescribing went up from 66 percent of all prescriptions in 2017 to 80 percent of all drug prescriptions in 2019. And now, COVID-19 is propelling the rate of e-Prescription adoption even more. All in all, e-prescribing is becoming more and more prominent and many doctors are looking into using it.

What is e-Prescribing?

e-Prescribing is a method where healthcare providers enter the prescription info of a patient into a specialized software and send it to the patient’s local pharmacy. The patient does not have to have the prescription on hand, and all they need to do then is pick up their medicine from the pharmacy. This also includes prescription refills.

Virtual prescriptions are considered acceptable in the healthcare setting as long as they are done in an appropriate amount and dosage, the patient is up to date with all medications, the patient is available for the transaction to happen, and they are not in a crisis state. This takes into account the best interest of the patient to ensure safety and security.

The standard is that the electronic prescription process needs to be carried out between doctors and patients. The patient needs to be up to date with their medications, and be comfortable with telehealth. The technology also needs to be able to track the dosage in the electronic prescription and make sure it matches the exact quantity that was prescribed. If this is not done, then it can set off a whole chain of events that can endanger the patient.

e-Prescribing of Controlled Substances

A common sub-topic revolved around e-Prescribing is that of controlled drugs. Before prescribing controlled substances, you have to know about the Electronic Prescribing for Controlled Substances (EPCS) rule, which has new mandates every year. These mandates require the need for certain controlled substances to be prescribed electronically rather than on paper so the prescriptions can be tracked easily.

Current Issues with e-Prescribing

Although the pros of e-Prescribing greatly outnumber the cons, it is good to be aware of all the ways that e-Prescribing can go wrong so you are prepared for it. The main issue with e-Prescribing is that the prescriptions can have info that is unclear or inaccurate. This involves complications between healthcare providers and pharmacists as clarification is required which can take up a lot of time. It is crucial to train staff to properly write prescriptions that are clear and easy to understand by the pharmacists. 

There is also the hurdle of meeting various regulations that have been put in place for e-Prescriptions. These vary by state

What the Future Holds

With the increasing adoption rates of e-Prescribing, the future of prescribing medicine electronically is looking bright. The market is expected to reach USD 4.1 billion by 2027. Although there will be some challenges that arise along the way, such as technological awareness within hospital and clinic staff and pharmacies, these challenges will not keep the e-Prescribing industry from growing rapidly.

The Best Sales Dashboards and Sales Mobile Apps Have These Three Features

Do you own a business and are looking to help keep everyone motivated and on track? Sales dashboard apps are a great way to keep you and your team on track as they make the data more visual. In addition to this, they help organizations to make rational, data-driven, and profitable decisions.

The dashboard apps consider several Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) such as sales growth, income sources, revenue concentration, profitability over time, working capital, etc. Key Performance Indicators vary with each business, but their goal remains the same- to show the progress made in several areas while highlighting shortcomings.

The number of smartphone users is expected to total 3.5 billion as the smartphone penetration rate is 45.4 percent, which means that having a dashboard that is compatible with both iOS and Android will help keep you on track. In addition to this, having live data that updates with an interval and is visually represented is undoubtedly going to make things a lot easier.

The 3 Key Aspects of The Best Sales Dashboards and Sales Mobile Apps

As per the paper labeled “Risk of Loss of Productivity in Workplaces” by Wafi Assiri, a business has several factors that may affect its productivity and being unable to access data promptly is one of them. Sales dashboards help you to keep the information readily available so that it can be accessed whenever needed. If we talk about the three keys to a good sales dashboard and/or mobile app, they are as follows:

  1. Offline Abilities – Not always are we going to have internet access, which should not hamper productivity at any cost. You should be able to work wherever you are, and internet unavailability should not halt your progress. Therefore a sales app or sales dashboard should work offline as well. 
  2. Monthly Forecasts – In every business, meeting the sales target is an essential agenda as it helps them remain on track and complete the quarterly goals. A monthly forecast enables you to make calculations and make short-term goals that add up to the yearly goals, thus breaking it down into doable chunks for the organization. Furthermore, what it does is that it helps you plan and realize the opportunities that may arise. Lastly, you can analyze your past and future goals and formulate a sales strategy.
  3. UI/UX Powerhouse – The technology used to build the dashboard is different from the kind of software used in the company, and that can make the dashboard a bit difficult to understand initially. UI and UX are essential for the success of any app. Dashboards and apps with a good interface and user experience are always preferred by the users, making it a necessary feature of a sales app/dashboard.

How Does a Sales and Marketing Dashboard App Help?

A recent study by Hubspot found that a lack of productivity costs employers $1.8 billion annually. The keys above that we talked about can be addressed with incomprehensible metrics that play a role in understanding several factors. It contains various KPIs that reflect areas that need improvements, and the benefits that it gives to an organization are as follows:

  1. Real-Time Data Access: An organization must realize which areas they need to optimize to maximize results and play a massive role in any business.
  2. Comprehend Data: Data is more clearly understood when presented in a visual form, and in a fast-paced environment, it can help the company out a lot.
  3. Identify Trends: Using the available data on hand, you can predict a lot about what trends will be famous among the customers and course-correct accordingly.
  4. Informed Decision Making: When faced with making a decision, the data that we have on hand helps us make a rational choice, and these apps can help you do precisely that.
  5. Align Strategies to Goal: When it comes to meeting our goals, we can formulate strategies to reach the goals.
  6. Save Time: Instead of going through piles of data, we can simply have that exact data presented in clean and instantly understandable data that can save us a lot of time.

In the end, we hope that the points we raised help you to maximize your productivity and streamline everything. Sales apps and dashboards are a great way to move forward for a business because it does a lot more than you expect of them. From insights to staying motivated for the deadline, dashboards and apps are going to do much more than you have read here.

Augmented Reality App Development: Process, Features, Cost etc

Augmented reality app development is experiencing a greater demand, considering that current equipment is capable of reproducing images, colors and sound to a degree where it is possible for people to interact with everyday objects.

Augmented reality technology was first created by Ivan Sutherland, a computer scientist at Harvard, in 1968. He developed the head-mounted display that is now used to manipulate our environment. Due to limited knowledge and a lack of resources at that time, he could achieve this only to a certain degree. Since then, augmented reality has quickly transformed into a viable solution in the marketplace, with other scientists making their own discoveries which have eventually led to what we have today as AR technology. 

How Augmented Reality Works

Much like a hologram, augmented reality (AR) overlays graphics on top of the real world, so that the real world seems to change to resemble a video game. Users can have the ultimate experience with augmented reality apps by simply pointing their smartphone at a real-world environment and selecting the relevant features through the device’s touch-screen. Headsets are also being widely used along with smartphone apps. The user’s video-game mindset also takes over, causing their hands to shift in the direction they are looking and manipulate objects. 

Augmented Reality Trends

The future of AR has been something of a sci-fi fantasy for some time now, with a first mover like Google Glass yet to become mainstream. However, with a surge in interest in consumer virtual reality in recent years, as well as companies like Apple and Microsoft investing in related technologies, the days of glasses may well be numbered.

Tools For iOS and Android

ARKit for Apple is one of the leading augmented reality SDKs (Software Development Kits) for iOS. Thanks to ARKit, you can build augmented reality experiences for iPhone and iPad, including games, education, travel, and more. ARKit also offers a path to bringing augmented reality to millions of existing iOS devices by enabling developers to bring augmented reality to any device with Apple’s A9 chip or later. Apple’s commitment to the iOS developer community goes beyond just ARKit. Its platform and ecosystem are highly optimized for developers to build the future of apps and games for iOS and macOS. ARKit can only be used for iOS development.

However, there are many other SDKs for Android development as well, one of the leading ones being Vuforia. Vuforia is a simulator with a native API that lets you create amazing 3D visuals by using an iPad or Android phone as a sighted device. This is great for developing both AR and VR applications.

Before you start using any of these SDKs, you need to add the correct permissions, know the API, add appropriate labels for buttons and media, etc. 

You also want to make sure that the SDK being used to develop your AR app allows for the following:

  • 3D recognition and tracking
  • Smart glasses integration
  • Image recognition and tracking
  • Location-based services

Cost of Building an AR App

The cost of developing an AR app ranges between $25K and $200K depending on the complexity of the technology used. So it is likely that a tech company will have multiple solutions with different price ranges and development times, but with the same ultimate goal to improve the customer experience.

Aside from the usual development cost (software development costs), security and battery life also have to be considered when discussing the topic of AR app costs. 

The Future of AR Technology

Augmented reality has yet to be defined in terms of a mass appeal for consumers. But for developers and researchers, it presents a huge opportunity to reach and test out applications that are in-demand in the market. For the longest time, consumers related AR technology to games such as Pokemon Go. Now, when we think of this technology, we can easily recall coming across it in our everyday lives whether it is online shopping or television broadcasting. Digi-Capital projects 3.5 billion mobile augmented reality users by 2022, and this will not be limited to games only. AR technology will soon take over various aspects of our lives along with other emerging technologies such as artificial intelligence and machine learning.

Healthcare App Features, Trends, and Costs

How often do you go out for dinner? Ordering food online is still eating from a restaurant but you are eating it from the comfort of your home. Every business sector out there is working tirelessly to provide an easier alternative to their users. Comfort is what everybody is looking for these days. 

If you’re reading this, you might be thinking of launching your healthcare app. This article will take you through the features, trends, and cost of a healthcare app. 

Healthcare App Trends

448 million people are using smartphones for browsing all around the world. There are 318,000 mhealthcare apps in app stores. The number of healthcare apps has doubled since 2015 and it is solely because more and more people are investing in healthcare apps as it has great potential. Over 60% of people have downloaded a health app on their phone. Fitness and wellness constitute 85% of mhealth apps and 15% of those apps are related to medical issues. 

Types of healthcare apps

  • App for patients
  • The General Doctor app
  • Healthcare Details App

Every type of healthcare app has some different features. Let’s dive into the features that a healthcare app offers. 

The Patient App

  • Sign up and Sign-in features allow you to access basic information about the user such as age and gender. 
  • The appointment feature helps the user to make an appointment with the doctor they’ve finalized.
  • The search feature helps users find a doctor according to their issue. For instance, a patient with stomach issues would search gastroenterologist. 
  • A pill reminder feature is beneficial for those who forget to take their medicine on time. Elderly people can especially make use of this feature.
  • In the Telemedicine feature, a medical professional would prescribe medicine and monitor the prescriptions.
  • Electronic health recorder keeps a record of the health of the patient. Doctors and patients both use this feature to keep track of records.
  • The feedback feature helps to rate the doctors based on the user’s experience.

The Doctor App

  • The profile creation feature requires the doctor to add all their qualification and experiences. This is specifically helpful for the users as they would be able to access the profile information of a doctor. Experience and certificates would make it easier for the patient to trust the doctor. 
  • The appointment feature in the doctor’s app helps to make the appointment process smooth and easy for both patient and doctor. This is where the doctor and patient can discuss and finalize a timing contingent on availability.
  • The patient dashboard is important for the doctor as it would convey the medical history of the patient, previous medications, and other details that the doctor should know about. 
  • The prescription would be a different feature as it needs to be legitimate. Doctors can use this feature to prescribe medicine in a certified way. 

The General Healthcare App

  • Doctor Management system which allows hospital staff to use the app and stay on record. 
  • The inventory management feature makes sure that there are enough supplies in the hospital. It is solely to be used by the hospital staff.
  • A patient management system would be used to keep a record of patients and their medical history. 

The Cost of a Healthcare App

The cost of a healthcare app is influenced by several factors. The platforms on which the app will be available is the first factor. If you’re going to make a native app, you might have to spend several thousand bucks on that. Apps on iOS and Android are relatively cheaper and can be developed at a lower rate as opposed to native apps.

Another interesting factor that influences the cost of an app is the developer you choose. Indian freelancers are well known for quality service at a low price. You can find Indian freelancers for as low as $10/hour. 

The features of the app are also a deciding factor in the cost of an app. For instance, if you want to add a payment feature in the app you might have to pay more to the developer. The language and complexity of the app also are a deciding factor in the cost of an app. 

The estimated budget for a healthcare app is around $5000-$15000. The variability depends upon the factors mentioned above. 

Healthcare apps are a major need during this time. Especially with the COVID-19 crisis, people are more inclined towards online consultations and healthcare services. If you are thinking about an investment in healthcare apps, talk to us today and we can help you with your app idea. 


5 Ways You Can Use AI to Scale Your Business

We couldn’t make it to flying cars in 2020. However, a far more revolutionary concept has set its foot in the Modern World. Artificial Intelligence, despite being a novice concept, has initiated to change the paradigms of life. Small and mid-sized companies as well as startups and entrepreneurs are adopting AI to scale their business.

Large scale corporate giants and startups both are investing in AI to gain a competitive edge in the market. If you’re wondering how to integrate AI into your business model to make it efficient, just keep reading and we’ll steer you to five ways you can use AI to scale your business. 

1. Improving Customer Experience Using AI

According to an American Express survey, 90% of Americans consider customer service as a deciding factor in choosing a product/service.

 If your company fails to provide an outstanding customer experience, it’s only a matter of time before you are ruled out of the market.  

Artificial Intelligence tools can help you build a flawless customer service model. An Accenture report concluded that by the end of 2020, AI-powered bots will be handling 80% of customer support. AI chatbots are being used by businesses on every scale. A chatbot not only provides a swift response but it can also deal with common issues faced by customers. 

2. Automated Marketing Via AI-Powered Tools

Marketing has not only been made easier but it is at the pinnacle of its success. Marketing ads are achieving higher conversion rates. It is due to consumer behavior analysis that marketing has become highly sophisticated and targeted. 

AI has shown improved performance in the following domains of Marketing:

  • Email Marketing
  • Content Generation
  • Digital Ad Campaigns

AI understands and makes predictions based on customer behavior. Understanding customer behavior can be used to send personalized emails. According to a Statistica report, personalized emails have an open rate of 18.1 percent in comparison to 13.1 percent of non-personalized emails. 

Digital ad campaigns are much easier with AI being able to handle the campaign on its own. All you need to do is create an ad and AI handles optimization, Analysis, cross-channel execution, and audience segment creation. Isn’t it great how AI has cut down the efforts that were needed to build an effective marketing campaign online?

Content creation and comparison is a great thing that can be done with AI-powered tools. You will get important insights about your content after it is compared with successful content online. This can help you significantly improve marketing efforts and scale your business with AI.

3. Hiring Process and AI

Recruiters spend a lot of time sifting through applications to find the right candidate for the job. 50% of the recruiters agree that hiring the right candidate is one of the hardest parts of their job. 

AI tools are used to hire the right candidate for the job. Proven performance data is used to create tests that need to be completed by applicants. Soft skills can also be tested in this way. Wouldn’t it be great if you don’t have to interview every candidate to find out whether they know how to use software or not? 

ProductiveHire is a great example of an AI-powered tool that is being used by recruiters in leading businesses. 

4. Data Security

Online businesses are under constant threat from scammers and hackers. Data breach and ransomware issues damage businesses to a great extent. A survey conducted by Norton concluded that it costs $3.86 million to recover the data after a data breach. The conventional ways to secure online businesses are being replaced by AI-powered tools. 

AI provides a reliable alternative to data protection. AI spots suspicious user behavior and blocks them timely. Google launched an update in 2016 which ended up blacklisting 20,000 malware-infected websites every week. 50,000 phishing websites were also blocked per week. 

Developers are integrating similar AI tools in their security system to tackle security risks. 

5. Data Science and AI for Intelligent Decision Making

Studying data and intelligent decision-making decisions based on that data has proven to be beneficial. AI uses Machine Learning and predictive analysis to create the probability of results for every decision that we can make. In this way, companies can make the best decision based on ever-changing customer needs. Consumer behavior analysis is one of the most important services offered by AI. You know what your customers are looking for and can provide that particular service without them asking for it.

However, the results so far have been so good that businesses are not only going to integrate AI tools in their business but also switch to them permanently. All you need to do now is find the perfect AI consulting firm to get started.


How to Brainstorm the Perfect Mobile App Idea

The competition in the mobile apps market is higher than ever. With a countless number of apps in the app stores, how do you come up with the next million dollar idea? You will find that the few moments of satisfaction when you feel like you have stumbled upon a genius mobile app concept are met with disappointment when you soon discover that the idea has already been put in motion. The reason why you keep hitting this roadblock is because you do not have a set process of evaluating the current market and trends, and we are here to guide you. 

Here are all of the factors to consider when coming up with the perfect mobile app idea, so you can become the next Uber and TikTok, or better yet, surpass them. 

  1. Examine current events and circumstances: When researching current events, you especially want to look for disruptive trends. What are the times calling for? Use COVID-19 as an example, which has stirred a greater need for remote work and changed the way businesses serve their clients in practically every vertical. Healthcare organizations are rapidly adopting telehealth services, more restaurants are teaming up with food delivery services such as Doordash and UberEats etc. With the rapid transformation of businesses due to the pandemic, this can be a great opportunity for you to brainstorm the perfect idea for app development. 

The news is not the only way for you to keep up with the times. Make sure to network with people (webinars and online networking events are perfect for this time) and bring up topics about what people need when talking to family and friends. They may just bring up an issue they experience in their daily lives that nobody thought of solving in the past!

  1. Determine what people will NEED, not WANT: We are not saying that gaming and other entertainment apps will not be successful, because obviously, many of them are. However, it is harder to get people to download these types of apps as they don’t exactly stress urgency. Plus, there are way too many entertainment apps in the market which further reduces the chances of your app taking the spotlight. 

Instead, going along with the first tip, when you find out what people NEED, you can conceptualize a mobile application idea that the majority will be inclined to ignore. Once you figure this out, you are golden. 

  1. Browse the current app market: Another great way to brainstorm mobile app topics is to scan the current apps available in the app stores. The reason why people find success with this method is because they can see if there are ways to improve upon current apps. For example, many social media platforms added Snapchat’s concept of 24-hour ‘stories’ a recollection of photos and videos of a person’s day. Now we have Facebook stories, Instagram stories, and even LinkedIn stories, which just launched recently. However, Instagram has the option of making stories permanent in separate folders. This allows Instagram to have a leg up on Snapchat, and even the other platforms, because now people do not have to download a separate app to record and see stories. They can have it all in one place. Looking at what is already in the market can surely grant you your lightbulb moment. 

  1. Conduct free online surveys: A smart option for people who have a hard time brainstorming, you can let the ideas come to you. Online surveys are incredibly easy to conduct nowadays, with tools such as Google Forms and SurveyMonkey. You can quickly create a public survey and share it across your social media channels, send to your loved ones, and even set aside a small budget to pay strangers to take the survey.

If you decide to do this, make sure your audience is varied. For example, if most of your Instagram followers are women in their 20s or 30s, you do not want to only get the word out for your survey there. A good option to figure out the demographics of a survey participant is to ask for the participant’s age range, gender, ethnicity, yearly income etc. on the form. You also want to ask questions that pertain to the average person’s daily life, which also involves almost every industry you can think of (ex. on a scale of 1-10, how would you rate the ease of transportation service apps and what improvements would you like to see in them? On a scale of 1-10, how would you rate the effectiveness of lifestyle tracking apps such as MyFitnessPal and what would you like to see be done differently?) 

  1. Consult with a reputable software company: If you started with a concept but are having a hard time completing it, you can get some mobile app development experts to help you finish your idea. Mobile app development companies have brainstormed ideas with various clients in the past, and they know what it takes to build the perfect app. They can warn you of any precautions to look out for, and give you the expertise you are looking for. If you already have a finished concept in mind, these experts can help you better your idea even more by offering suggestions, including mobile app name suggestions and more. You want to find a reputable mobile app development agency backed by good work and a true passion for bringing mobile concepts to life. 

Brainstorming a good mobile app idea is not as intimidating as it seems. A good mobile app development company can ease your worries. Sunvera has what it takes to not only bring your intelligent mobile application idea to life, but also make sure that your app is not dead on arrival, as the majority of mobile apps are the moment they reach the app stores.

5 Ways AI Is Transforming the Healthcare Industry

Many of us may not realize that Artificial Intelligence (AI) has quietly established a global presence in our everyday lives. From revolutionary apps such as Facebook and Uber to mobile check deposits, we have a lot to thank AI for. 


The healthcare industry is starting to witness massive upcoming changes that will change the whole game. Many hospitals and healthcare professionals have started incorporating this groundbreaking technology into their work lives, and the results have been impressive so far. Here are five ways that AI can, and will, positively impact the health industry. 


( 1 ) Making sense of big data: Healthcare professionals rely on big data to study diseases so they can try to find a cure for them. The problem is that examining big data can get really complicated and even take years to understand, so this spurs the need for AI. Using automated technology also reduces the chances of misinterpreting information and therefore, saving even more time. 


( 2 ) Brain-computer interfaces solution: Some people have had the heartbreaking experience of seeing their loved ones struggle to speak due to neuromuscular disorders. The solution for this lies in the hands of a brain-computer interface, or BCI, which takes brain signals and projects them onto an outward device. BCIs not only work to solve communication barriers, but are also being used for prevention of life-threatening habits such as alcohol and smoking as well as detection of health issues. Learn more about the various medical applications of BCIs

( 3 ) Robots helping perform surgeries: Yes you read that right. More and more doctors are finding the option of robot-assisted surgery attractive for various reasons. The most important reason is that robots allow levels of precision and control that humans may not be capable of. A new study by iData Research reveals that the robotic surgery market is expected to reach $7 billion by 2025. 



( 4 ) Accelerating the development of new medicine: AI-created medicine will be used on humans for the first time this year. This is exciting news since manual drug development processes can take up to 20 years, while AI can get the job done in just weeks. Therefore, the incorporation of more AI in medicine development will be a huge step-up towards medical advancement. It is very likely that the majority of new medicines near the end of the decade will be developed with AI. 


( 5 ) Simplifying the medical imaging process: According to a survey by Definitive Healthcare, approximately one-third of organizations use AI to assist with medical imaging processes, resulting in more faster and accurate diagnoses. 


The results of the studies conducted on artificial intelligence processes thus far give us a bright outlook on the future of healthcare. The possibilities with AI are endless. The question then remains, how will medical professionals allocate the rest of their time to seek better treatments and cures for patients? 

Sunvera Software is one of the market leaders in providing custom AI-based telehealth solutions to medical professionals. We have pioneered intelligent apps that solve common issues such as accessing urgent care and medical research studies with ease.
