Benefits of Custom Healthcare Mobile Apps

Many vendors provide mobile versions of their packaged medical solutions. However, these apps are often just heavy and inconvenient duplicates of their desktop counterparts. Instead, our custom software offers you the following benefits:

Task-oriented approach

To deliver easy-to-use software, we pay special attention to every app’s purpose. Keeping in mind the requirements of every particular department, we create customized solutions to help your staff fulfil assignments more efficiently.

User-friendly UI/UX design

As healthcare mobile app developers, we create elaborate UX patterns. Thanks to a comprehensive interface and smooth navigation, your employees will perform the needed tasks without going through multiple screens, which is exhausting and time-consuming.

Integration with multiple internal systems

To bring additional value to your organization, we make the mobile health application a gateway to other solutions in your infrastructure, including EHR, practice management, scheduling, revenue cycle management, and other systems.

Security assurance

As a healthcare app development company, we understand the importance of data protection in medical mobile app development. We make sure that only authorized personnel access clinical information – within the scope of their authority.

ScienceSoft USA Corporation Is a 3-Year Champion in the Financial Times Rating

Three years in a row (2022–2024), the Financial Times has included ScienceSoft USA Corporation in the list of 500 fastest-growing American companies. This is the result of our dedication to driving project success despite any constraints and disruptions.

Technologies We Use for Healthcare App Development Services

Choosing the right technology for your mobile healthcare application is crucial to achieving your project goals. Here are two options to consider:

Cross-platform development

  • Xamarin (offers high app performance and a near-native UI).
  • Cordova (allows relatively fast development and deployment).
  • React Native (enhances productivity by enabling faster rendering and improving code stability through its data binding structure; allows for code reusability).
  • Flutter (enables code reuse; ensures excellent app performance due to its widget services and ease of development).

Native development

For a native app experience, specific technologies can be used for each operating system:

  • Swift (a popular choice to develop iOS healthcare apps due to its easy code usability).
  • Java (particularly good for building secure and high-performing Android applications).

Our full technology stack for mobile projects

ScienceSoft recommends: Focus on your users when choosing technology for a healthcare app. For example, if you develop an app specifically for hospital nurses who use Android tablets in their work, it’s better to opt for Android-native development.

Advanced technologies we're skilled in

Artificial Intelligence (AI)

To collect and analyze patient data (e.g., vitals, symptoms, medication adherence), generate personalized health recommendations and treatment plans, flag early signs of diseases, provide 24/7 support to patients via chatbots, etc.

To automate routine operations of healthcare organizations (e.g., asset tracking, patient vitals monitoring) using a network of smart devices connected to a cloud server.

To train medical specialists (e.g., using surgery simulation, medical equipment use training, anatomy training), carry out patient rehabilitation, physical therapy, etc.

To collect medical and operational data (e.g., patient outcomes, patient-generated health data, costs per patient), analyze it, and draw insights that help optimize the care delivery process, treatment efficiency, decrease health risks and complications, etc.

Senior Business Analyst and UX Consultant

Prioritizing user-centric design and seamless user experience is paramount to make your app a success. In the healthcare industry, users (patients, doctors, caregivers) value simplicity, ease of use, and accessibility. By focusing on creating a user-friendly interface, intuitive navigation, and engaging features, you can enhance user satisfaction and encourage app adoption and retention.

Cost and Time Estimates for Developing a Healthcare Mobile App

Based on ScienceSoft's experience, the cost of healthcare mobile app development starts from $60,000 and may reach $250,000+, depending on the app's complexity. The major cost-defining factors include app functionality and integrations with healthcare systems. The number of user roles and permissions, the need for real-time data synchronization, and more also influence the final price of your app. The development timeline may range between 3 and 18+ months.


For a simple patient or doctor/nurse mobile application that:

  • focuses on one aspect, such as medication intake tracking or clinical documentation management;
  • features only basic functionality (e.g., health data tracking, push notifications, in-app messaging);
  • has no integration with EHR.

3–6 months


For a robust app for patients or medical staff that:

  • covers several aspects (from appointment management to daily care);
  • has moderately complex features, such as prescription refill requests, health analytics, and reporting;
  • integrates with EHR.

6–12 months

From $250,000

For a sophisticated healthcare solution that:

  • covers multiple aspects;
  • features advanced functionality (e.g., speech and image recognition, ML-assisted diagnosis, remote patient monitoring with IoT devices);
  • integrates with all the required systems.

12–18+ months
