Hospital booking service
- The main idea was not only to create an application for booking an appointment, thanks to which patients could sign up for a reception and book a certain service, but also to implement an ACL system that would give different levels of access for patients and doctors. Using the app, the patient is able to select the most convenient appointment and the service he wants, and the doctor can decide if it’s necessary or not.
What was achieved:
- the waiting time was significantly reduced;
- it became much easier to make an appointment;
- thanks to the Date Confirmation function, less appointments were missed;
- thus, hospitals don’t have for unrealized consultation anymore;
- the number of requests has increased and hospitals have become more demanded and organized.
The application is based on the concept that a Patient can ask the hospital for certain services. While requiring a service, a Patient inserts personal and request information into a Waiting List. Then an operator performs a Service assignment which involves Booking of this patient to the required service. Booking is based on the Events Calendar schedule. Each Service must have a Booking Slot based on a set of properties, so that operators can assign each patient to a specific slot. The key features that were implemented during the development:
- ACL - a control list that determines who can access a specific object;
- Dictionary - after registration in the system the patient will have an access to the dictionary that describes all the services and procedures;
With a help of Value-based healthcare authoring tool for chronic disease management and the mobile application users can easily manage their disease activity to improve the health outcome in a cost-effective manner. As chronic disease management program patients, application users have access to the following functionality:
- review of their personalized care program, clinical and laboratory results, upcoming labs, clinic visits, scheduled home care, and procedures;
- update their current disease activity state and quality of life and work productivity;
- ability to place a call for an appointment or to apply for hospitals for getting the directions to clinics online.

The problem of many hospitals was that patients had to stand in lines and wait for their turn for a long time when the doctor will prescribe certain treatment. But there is more to come. To get the treatment they had to make another appointment and to wait again. It wasn’t convenient at all. Therefore, the decision to create a solution for recording at the reception was quite logical and justified. That is how Hospital Booking Service — registration system for automatisation of the appointment making process — was born.
