During the COVID-19 lockdown, it became difficult for doctors to consult and diagnose their patients even for common diseases such as influenza, or to take a look at follow-up patients who had been operated upon before the lockdown started.
During this time, Oakland Systems, which works on software solutions for hospitals, decided to build a number of apps to enable doctors to consult patients via video calling.
With a work-from-home team of around 8 developers, we developed 1 web app and 2 mobile apps. Patients can use a mobile app and request an appointment with an available doctor, and pay for the consultation via the app itself. The doctor can read the details provided with the request, initiate a video call with the patient, and send a soft-copy of the prescription. The apps use the Twilio video calling API.
I worked on the doctor-app, developed in react native by a two-member team. I was also responsible for the video call integration into the web version of the doctor-app. The project duration was around two weeks, from 25th March to 10th April 2020.
