Global explosion of mobile technology has engendered a new instrument to address the challenges in public health and to revolutionize the paradigm of healthcare access and delivery system. Today mobile phone coverage has increased to a significant 90% of the world’s population. The rising ubiquity and infiltration of mobile phones has kindled the beginning of a new era in healthcare, mobile health (mHealth). mHealth is the amalgamation of mobile telecommunication and multimedia into an on the go mobile health care delivery system.
Pediatric Pal is a mHealth application targeted to care for children and help build a healthier tomorrow for them. Pediatric Pal is designed to be the “Drive Thru” for the pediatric healthcare system. The mhealth app focuses on giving patients access to a highly sophisticated medical diagnosis tool. By using latest searching technologies, the system can take a pattern of symptoms in everyday language and instantly compute from our vast database. The app design and development will be outsourced to a web design Hyperlink solutions agency. Database for the app will be maintained in house and test runs will be run within the house.
The main source of revenue for the app will be from user subscription and upfront cash payment. Premium downloads will bring in the extra revenue as well.
Pediatric Pal puts world’s medical knowledge at the patients fingertips and enables them to make sense of your symptoms. It will change the way patients speak to their doctor forever.
