Imagine you have three kids home sick with sore throats. The pediatrician’s office is 45 minutes away and the only time they can fit you in conflicts with your afternoon Zoom call. Plus, one of the children is terrified of the doctor’s office. Not so long ago, you would have had to cancel your meeting and spend the afternoon cajoling your unwilling child — but thanks to innovators like Stephanie Guignard, founder of Mom’s Choice Mobile Healthcare, urgent care can now be delivered straight to your door within a matter of hours with the help of a healthcare app.
Accessible healthcare powered by a custom mobile app
Committed to providing her community with easy access to quality healthcare, Guignard developed Mom’s Choice Mobile Healthcare as a way to provide patients with an alternative to costly, time-consuming, and inconvenient doctor’s visits. Currently serving the Dallas/Fort Worth area, Mom’s Choice offers patients a wide range of mobile urgent care services, including lab work, physical exams, and COVID-19 testing.
To make Mom’s Choice even more convenient, Guignard knew she had to create a central hub for patients to schedule appointments, communicate with providers, access healthcare resources, and more. Though Guignard was keenly aware of the power of mobile apps, she knew nothing about app development and was intimidated by the five-figure price tags attached to traditional developers. Thankfully, Guignard connected with enCappture and discovered the new done-for-you alternative to costly custom apps or hands-on low-code platforms.
3 key features for mobile healthcare apps
With enCappture, Guignard was able to develop a custom app with all the essential features a good healthcare app needs, including:
- Secure, third-party integration
- In-app messaging
But this is just the beginning for the Mom’s Choice Mobile Healthcare app. Thanks to the ease of updating her enCappture-powered app, Guignard plans to eventually add features like in-app paperwork and push notifications to serve as appointment reminders or provide patients with critical updates. “This is just the first development,” says Guignard, “We plan to keep adding to the app as things progress.”
