Our Innovation is called MobiCare; a smartphone mobile-based application that links patients/caretakers to practicing licensed Medical Doctors and enables convenient appointment scheduling.
When a user (Doctor or Patient) downloads and launches MobiCare on their phone, they are required to create an account before accessing and using MobiCare services. Patients with MobiCare accounts can login and directly request for appointments from the Doctors already registered with MobiCare. The selected doctor can then confirm the requested appointments and await to see the patient. MobiCare also sends reminders prior to both the patient and the Doctor prior to their appointment time.
