On average, it takes up to 45+ minutes to see a physician at an urgent care clinic & 4 hours to get discharged. For many people, the wait time or misdiagnosing an issue that they think is minor can lead to serious health complications. What if there was a better way to seek help, through a secure telemedicine platform?
What it does
Allows hospitals, urgent care clinics and physicians to easily connect with patients through their mobile devices. Patients are happy because they can receive personalized healthcare at the tap of a button. Doctors are happy because we automate the paper work and they generate more business from patients anywhere.
How we built it
We used a modern tech stack that includes Agoras HIPAA compliant video platform, Node.js, MongoDB, Bootstrap, Gulp and Zeit
Challenges we ran into
Figuring out the best data store to use (we decided on mongodb)
Accomplishments that we're proud of
Building a production ready platform for the telemedicine space
What we learned
That their is a real problem within the telemedicine space. Many private practices, urgent care centers and hospitals we talk to want to offer a solution like this but dont have the expertise to build a solution like this in house. Thats where we come in, the power of web RTC & mobile video SDKs is very real!
What's next for Primary Medicine
Continue to build out the platform and onboard partners. We are working on establishing a pilot with a hospital in the East Bay Area!
