Title: iOS DEVELOPER

Department: DEVELOPMENT

Nextgen’s EHR system is used by thousands of Doctors and Nurses and clinical admins in several hundreds of clinics and hospitals. Nextgen’ s mobile app mainly focuses on improving doctor’s productivity, meaning, we want the doctor to spend more time with the patients, not with the computers. The type of doctors we focus tend to write more notes about patient visit and it takes long time to do so. Also it takes time to search for patient information on computer. So the mobile app comes handy in this situation. When the doctor walks in to the patient room she has all the information about the patient readily available in her hand. The doctor doesn’t have to sit and write any notes on the computer instead she can simply talk to the app. Behind the scene we take the audio and send to speech recognition engine to convert to text, proof read it, and then document it as an Electronic Health Record. This saves lot of time for the doctor and allows them to be more productive and see few more patients every day.

            The app also has a chat functionality, similar to WhatsApp, which allows doctor to communicate with other doctors and nurses and staff.

            The app supports offline behaviour, so it deals with lot of local data and syncing with the server.

            It’s a native app, not a hybrid app.

            It supports iPad as well (mention this only to iOS candidates).

            It supports a wide variety of Android devices. (mention this only to Android candidates)

            Currently the app is on app store and play store and used by thousands of doctors and others.
