1. Timeslot Management:

Generally, the appointment timeslots are manually set by the doctors. But dynamic management of the time slots by an application was one of our developers' most significant issues during the appointment booking. It was getting difficult to fetch the available doctors based on the user and doctor location criteria and the time slot. Our team of expert back-end developers managed to overcome this situation by applying custom logic that helped them fetch the available doctors as per the defined criteria.

2. Showing Address Route On Map:

If a patient demands a house call or office visit, the patient's address and location are shown in their profile. After accepting the request, whenever a doctor clicks on the patient's address, an entire direction to the patient's addresses is supposed to be opened on another screen. It was indeed a quite time-consuming and challenging task for our developers. Our Android and iOS development team managed this task by integrating Google Map, where they fetch locations and draw an entire route to patient's address through the get route() and the Draw Polyline() method.

3. Language Support:

The language was one of the most significant obstructions faced during the application launch. To maintain the application standard, Our development team integrated third-party tools and SDK, which allows an app to load in the selected language. Based on the device language, an entire app is loaded into that particular language chosen.

4. Speech To Text Conversion:

After appointment completion, a doctor can enter their suggestion or notes through speech and text both. Whenever a doctor/physician enters a note through speech, converting their voice in the text format was one of the significant issues to be handled during app development. Our iOS and Android app developers managed this scenario by handling TextView Delegate in iOS and integrating third-party libraries in Android.
