HCP Engagement During a Pandemic: 3 Ways

HCP engagement during these unpredictable times can be a challenge. Establishing a workplace culture in which various engagement strategies are applied, taking into account safety and security practices, should be identified as an organizational priority that is essential in building strong relationships within the team. 

However, many challenges are being presented in the healthcare industry right now, especially ever since COVID-19 surfaced. Privacy and cybersecurity concerns are on the rise, patients and doctors are trying to adjust to remote healthcare services, and hospitals and clinics are struggling to keep all of their employees connected to stay on track. Luckily, there are many solutions that can be applied to your organization to solve this issue. Here are three ways that HCPs can stay engaged during this time.


Unified access portal and communications

A unified access portal can connect healthcare providers in various ways. From secure sign-on to remote workforce automation, there are multiple benefits in implementing a unified access portal solution. 

A typical example is the use of a Smart Card (PAHSSA Smart Card) as a privileged token to provide the various health IT applications and functions through a single user interface (UI) for verification. This can enable a provider to authenticate their credentials against a cloud-based Unified Access Service Provider Network, gain access to various information, and connect securely with their computer, mobile phone or tablet, which can significantly improve your organization’s communication processes. 


Store-and-forward

Store-and-forward is a telehealth method that’s used to monitor patients, keep track of medication needs, perform blood tests, monitor weight, and so on. This mechanism involves the sharing of information among healthcare providers. For example, a healthcare provider can see the progress of a patient while another can provide telehealth support.

While this process has been used for years, telehealth providers have until now used expensive and limited channels to make remote monitoring, communication, and home-based health tracking possible.


Online training

Your healthcare organization can also provide new employees access to an online self-training program, customized for your organization. Employees can get to know the program, learn the skills that will be directly applied to their role, through engaging self-paced content. By providing self-training courses to new hires, you’re giving them a head start and providing them with the skills they’ll need to succeed.

These are just a few ways for doctors and other healthcare professionals to stay connected during this tough pandemic period. Now all you need to do is contact us, and we can walk you through the entire software implementation process, including ways to secure your organization from outside threats. Transform your healthcare organization in just weeks by implementing the right HCP engagement solutions, and be prepared for the rapid digital transformation in the healthcare industry!

Sunvera Software Forms a Partnership With Microsoft Azure For Advanced Cloud Offerings

Sunvera Software, an enterprise software solutions provider specializing in mobile apps, cloud migration and solutions, and custom software development, has formed a long-term partnership with Microsoft Azure to deliver next-generation cloud solutions including AI/ML solutions for small and mid-sized companies.

With shrinking budgets and limited infrastructure, businesses are struggling to manage employees’ work, and the majority of the workforce going remote due to the pandemic is not helping either. Company data is becoming harder to access and employee collaboration is a challenge many enterprises are facing. 

Secure cloud-based solutions are defeating the obstacles that come with adjusting to unpredictable situations and are improving the overall operational efficiency of businesses. These cost-effective cloud and AI offerings are transforming the way businesses work, collaborate, and maintain their regular business processes. By examining the current stats and adoption rate of working in the cloud, it is evident that more companies will migrate to the cloud, whether they shift a fraction of their data management processes to the internet or as many as possible. 

“Our partnership with Microsoft will allow greater possibilities for improving our clients’ current business management structure.” says Dr. S, Chief Listening Officer at Sunvera Software, who is a former Microsoft employee for over a decade. “Companies are starting to realize the hassle that comes with using on-site systems to manage company information, and this pandemic has brought more light upon these issues as employees are struggling to work away from the office. Cloud solutions are proving to be effective by making data accessibility a lot easier to facilitate a better remote working environment.”

Sunvera is looking forward to expanding its expertise in the cloud computing market by partnering with Microsoft Azure.

Importance of UI and UX in App Design

It takes a second to delete an app that does not work smoothly. With a plethora of options in the online marketplace, your app would be replaced right away if it is not optimized for performance and an effortless user experience.

With millions of apps in the app store, the successful ones have one thing in common; a great look and feel. All of your efforts at the backend might go into the drain if you don’t invest time, effort, and capital in the UI and UX of an app. 

What are UI and UX?

UI or the User Interface is the graphical layout of an app. The buttons, text, sliders, images, and any other elements that the user will interact with is UI. Cutting it short, UI is the mode of transfer of all the work that has been done at the backend. 

UX or the User Experience pertains to how the app operates, and whether or not it meets the requirements of the user. UX should be steered to make things easy and comfortable for the users. 

If the UI and UX aren’t given due attention, your idea, no matter how revolutionary it is, might not survive in the market. 

205.4 billion apps were downloaded in 2020 and the number is expected to be 258.2 billion by the year 2022. People are shifting to mobile apps because of their efficient functionality and potential to get things done swiftly and if your app does not do that, it will not be able to save its place in the market.

Importance of UI/UX in Mobile Apps

An app with a great idea would thrive on paper. However, flawless functionality and a sophisticated design are a must-have to succeed in the digital market.

Below are a few points that discuss the significance of the UI/UX design of the app. 

Captivated Users

After your app is downloaded, the first few seconds are quite crucial. If your app has a compelling design and a good interface, the users will decide to keep using your app. However, if you don’t create engagement through the design and content in the first few seconds, users will navigate to other apps in the store. 

Time and Cost Savings

An app with a good UI UX design would save users time as they would not have to fidget around the app to solve their problems. This will land you some good ratings and you won’t have to work on updates thus saving money and time. 

Brand Recognition

Ratings are important for an app. A user will take some seconds out of their time to give you a good rating if you deserve it. This will help you build brand recognition and people would prefer your app over others due to the higher rating. Once you are on top of the list, your app will automatically get better rankings and more downloads.

People always remember good experiences. If you have invested in UI/UX app design, your brand will stand out and would speak for itself. It’s a very simple phenomenon. People are getting what they want with a good design and no performance issues if you’ve invested in a good UI/UX design. That would pave the road for your brand recognition and you can get the customer engagement you have been waiting for. 

Tips to improve UI/UX in App Design 

Let’s discuss a few important tips about UI and UX that you should keep in mind while designing an app. 

  • Uniform Design

A consistent design should be followed throughout the app. Do not be limited to the start screen. Every part of your app including, buttons, sidebars, any sliders, and menus should have a consistent design. 

  • Interactive Design

A user-friendly design allows the user to interact with the app and build a connection. Let the design interact with the app freely. People like the freedom of being able to customize the app, for instance, the layout and color scheme. 

  • Simple Design

Cluttering up your app will only confuse the users. Make it simple and easy to use. Your design will do no good to the user if it confuses them. Integrate a straightforward design that steers the user easily to get his/her task done. 

UI/UX design of an app is a crucial aspect of designing a successful app. Understand the needs and market preferences of your target audience to make necessary amends in your app. This practice goes a long way in securing a good place in the online marketplace. Lastly, you will want to partner up with a reputable mobile app development company to take care of the UI/UX aspect of your app. Contact us today for a free consultation.

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. 

There might be several downsides of AI and people are a little hesitant to adopt it as an alternative to the conventional methods. 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.

Why Healthcare Professionals are Unhappy With Off-the-Shelf EMR and EHR Software

Electronic medical records (EMRs) and electronic health records (EHRs) are at a greater demand than ever, with adoption rates at nearly 90%, according to Health IT Dashboard. With a good number of EMR and EHR software in the market, there is so much to choose from. However, these software have not met all the requirements of HCPs. A 2018 Deloitte survey concluded that around 90% of US physicians would like to change at least one aspect of their current EHR software. 

Most Common Issues with Current EMR/EHR Software

  1. Too expensive: Cost remains the biggest barrier to adopting EMR and EHR systems, with many HCPs spending around $15,000-$70,000 for expensive EMR and EHR software that still do not fulfill their needs. This includes set-up, training, and maintenance costs. 
  1. The issue of interoperability: The topic of patient information sharing always makes doctors and clinicians feel uncomfortable, because these records need to be shared across organizations safely. Although there are a number of privacy measures being put in motion, there is still a long journey ahead on the interoperability route.
  1. Trouble navigating through data: The lack of user-friendliness in EMR/EHR software makes searchability a major issue. HCPs have to click numerous times before giving their patient medication. Additionally, hospitals and clinics still have to manually enter data into multiple systems, which takes away valuable time and makes the data more prone to errors. 

Despite Its Flaws, EMR/EHR Software is Here to Stay

That’s right, the number of healthcare organizations using EHR & EMR software is growing every year with a greater demand for digital health and medical records. The global demand for electronic medical record market was valued at about USD 27.1 billion in 2019, and is expected to generate revenue of around USD 40.8 billion by the end of 2026. The use of digital health record software has already become an essential part of many healthcare organizations, and they will only have a greater presence in the health industry in the coming years. Despite the upward trend, the future of such software is extremely foggy as there seems to be barely any plans for improving these software. 

The Workaround: Customized Medical & Health Record Software

With custom EMR/EHR software, you can have the system tailored to your organization’s needs and it does not require soaring costs. You no longer have to pay for expensive software that still makes you feel burned out. 

Let Sunvera consult with your healthcare organization and implement a custom solution that takes care of all your needs while reducing the time you and your employees spend using this software. Contact us today to discuss your needs.
