What is a patient management app?

A patient management app is a web or mobile application that enables users to access and manage the medical information of multiple patients. Such applications typically include interfaces for viewing, storing, editing and sharing patient information such as symptoms, diagnoses, treatments, and check-ins at Health Care facilities.

Patient management apps share common features with medical apps, wellness apps, and health consultation apps. One of the most popular patient management apps is Practo. There are several Android and iOS patient management apps in the Health Care industry.

Here are some recent patient management app examples built with Crowdbotics:

  • An app for caregivers to be alerted when the people they are caring for need assistance.

  • A patient tracking app to facilitate better communication between primary care physicians (PCPs) and inpatient hospital teams. The app will need to communicate with Electronic Medical Records systems. In a sense, this would be a social media app for Physicians.

What is the typical cost to build a patient management app?

A patient management app usually costs $37,500 to build. However, the total cost can be as low as $25,000 or as high as $50,000. A patient management app with a low number of features (also known as a "minimum viable product", or MVP) will be more affordable than an app that includes all intended functionality.

For example, here are some recent patient management app price quotes from Crowdbotics:

  • $42,500

  • $37,500

Here are some considerations that may impact the cost of a app:

How long does it take to build a patient management app?

A patient management app usually takes 533 hours to build. However, a patient management app can be built in as few as 200 hours, or in as many as 933 hours. The exact timeline mostly depends on how complicated your app is. As a general rule, it will take longer if you require highly custom designs, niche features, or non-standard release platforms.

For example, the most recent patient management apps built with Crowdbotics received the following hourly estimates:

  • 567

How to successfully grow your patient management application

A patient management app for doctors can grow by helping physicians make better use of their time and coordinate with their patients. An effective strategy is to offer users an incentive to refer the app to their own patients, as well as access to a large pool of user-generated content from other physicians.

Risks and challenges of building a patient management application

A patient management app faces risks related to the handling of sensitive personal health information, the transfer of data across international borders, and the privacy of minors. Before creating a patient management app, you will want to ensure that you have consent from users and that your HIPAA compliance policies are in place. You will also want to ensure that your app is compliant with all applicable laws governing the use of medical data.
