Lybrate launches two dedicated Android apps for doctors and patients

lybrate-logo-newDoctor directory and clinic management system Lybrate has launched two healthcare apps: Practice Management for doctors and Find Best Doctors for patients. The apps are currently only available on the Android platform although the company claims iPhone and Windows apps are coming soon. Lybrate had secured $1.225 million in investment last month from Nexus Venture Partners.

The Practice Management app pretty much imitates the features the Lybrate website provides doctors. It will allow doctors to add new patients, track payments, create appointments and record patient treatments among other things. It features a searchable patient history, can send appointment reminders to patients, displays clinic performance stats and has a complete billing module. Premium subscription to the app will also allow doctors to send SMS reminders to patients for due payments, appointments, dental checkups etc. The subscription plans are common for both the web-based service and mobile apps, which start with a free plan and range up to Rs 849 per month.

The Find Best Doctors app is also similar in functionality to what the website offers patients. A user can search for nearby doctors listed based on ratings by real patients and select from available times to book an appointment. The app offers some unique features over its web-based platform though, like finding the nearest ambulance, sharing medical documents even with people without the app and a “danger” button, which triggers messages to assigned contacts by pressing the power button. This app is available for free.
