On the other hand, MySQL provided a safe and efficient database management system, ensuring the integrity and accessibility of the platform’s data. This technology stack provided a solid groundwork and enabled the seamless inclusion of necessary features such as the appointment booking system, real-time chat, and clinic management tools.
