We are a medium sized hospital located in Birmingham, AL and I am trying to decide if I need an iPhone app, mobile version of the site, or both.? Price will most likely determine.?
Here is what I am thinking about as an app (if you guys have done apps for other hospitals then you may have some ideas as well):
-? component where patients can search for a doctor by zip code (am curious if the app can tell via the GPS feature of the iphone where they are located and recommend the clinic that is closest).? This component will need to automatically update when I update the doctors on teh website so that I do not have to keep paying to update doctors as they come and go)
-? component where patients can schedule appointments with any of our physicians or clinics.?
-? component where patients can get driving directions to any of our clinics
- component where patients can request a prescription refill (they provide their name, phone, email (optional) and medication/prescirption that they need refilled) and it sends an email to the clinic so they can process
Also, was wondering if faxes could be sent as notifications instead of emails.? Wasn't sure if that was possible.
Our website is trinitymedicalclinics.com.? I am a graphic designer so I can design in HTML or provide .jpg files as soon as someone can tell me what dimensions I need to design for.
