Remote Patient Care App Development

  • Swift
  • Kotlin
  • Laravel 
  • Android
  • iOS


The healthcare industry is growing by leaps and bounds, which allows more patients to be supported. Post-knee surgery is one of the most crucial times when patients need to stay active but under observation. Our client wanted to streamline this function with remote observation through a mobile app. They wanted to help patients with recovery while keeping an eye on pain. They approached vrinsoft to build mobile applications for doctors and patients that are available on both Android and iOS. This case study will provide detailed information on how we approached and completed this project.

Project Highlights

  • Developed mobile applications for Android and iOS for both patients and doctors.
  • Implemented HIPAA-compliant communication features for patient privacy.
  • Integrated exercise video and pain management tools within the app.
  • Designed a user-friendly interface for both patients and healthcare providers.
  • Developed a secure platform for photo sharing and remote patient assessment.
  • Build a secure backend system for the admin to add and remove doctors and patients.


  • Help patient recovery outcomes through personalized exercise programs.
  • Reduce postoperative pain and anxiety through real-time guidance.
  • Improve communication and accessibility between patients and healthcare providers.
  • Provide constant care to patients in recovery through a comprehensive exercise regime and pain management.


  • Developed separate patient and doctor-facing apps for a user-friendly experience.
  • Implemented a secure communication platform for chat and video calls.
  • Integrated a pain measurement module with personalized activity recommendations.
  • Added a photo-sharing feature for remote patient assessment.
  • A secure payment gateway for safe monetary transactions was added to the app.


  • Improved patient-reported pain levels and mobility function.
  • Increased patient satisfaction with recovery support and communication with providers.
  • Reduced patient readmission rates due to improved adherence to recovery protocols.
  • Potential cost savings for healthcare systems through improved patient outcomes.

Our Client

The client is a leading joint center that focuses on hip and knee surgery. They have over 30 years of experience in the field and want to help their patients with recovery post-surgery. However, keeping constant communication and clinic visits can tire patients, so they need to automate the system. With this solution, patients can evaluate their pain level, video chat with doctors, and follow a day-to-day exercise regime. With their decade of experience, they collaborated with us to build an all-inclusive recovery solution.

Client Requirements

  • Provide personalized exercise plans based on patient progress.
  • Enable real-time data collection from trackers to measure heartbeat, steps, and sleep.
  • Build a pain measurement test to help the doctor understand the progress.
  • The admin can add doctors to the backend and update the app's content.

Proposed Solution

We proposed a comprehensive mobile healthcare app solution with Android and iOS for both doctors and patients. This approach makes it easy for patients and healthcare providers to access the services from any device they prefer. We integrate video call integration with Agora so that patients can easily get in touch with doctors. An activity tracker on the app will help doctors gather data on patients’ health. The app has a pain measurement test that will inform doctors when to intervene or assign a day-to-day exercise.

Why We Chose This Solution

To accommodate the client, we used native app development and other third-party tools to create a robust and seamless application. Here is why we choose this solution,

  • Swift and Kotlin are robust languages for performant native mobile app development.
  • The Laravel framework provides a secure and scalable backend infrastructure.
  • Separate apps for patients and doctors optimize user experience for each group.
  • Firebase, Google API, and Diplink enhance the patient's experience with the app and help them recover.

Benefit of This Solution

This solution is designed to help patients become active participants in their recovery journey by providing them with tools and knowledge. Patients can track progress, manage pain, and perform exercises easily through educational content and secure communication with doctors. Healthcare providers also benefit from improved efficiency, with streamlined communication, remote patient monitoring, and better care coordination. The solution is accessible on multiple platforms, making it easy for both patients and doctors to use.
