Bamboo Agile was tasked with developing an AI-powered mobile application that would help its users diagnose COVID-19 and book doctor appointments.
About the Project
The software would target low-income regions, first and foremost. By letting potential patients diagnose the disease on their own, the app would help take the load off hospitals, as well as make medical help more accessible to those who need it most.
Bamboo carried out pre-development research, designed, and delivered an AI-based mobile app that helped people determine if they had coronavirus from the safety of their homes. The app also lets users book on-site or remote appointments with doctors from their local clinics.
The solution is designed to be integrated with select health clinics. Said clinics sync their data with the system and then provide software access to their staff and patients. The app was first set to launch in Brazil, with the intention to expand to more countries later on.
Technologies we used:
This is the core feature of the application. To determine if they have coronavirus, users need to take a smart questionnaire in the form of a conversation with an AI bot. The questionnaire then adapts and changes depending on the user’s answers as the test progresses.
If the results show that the user is indeed sick, the bot offers to call a doctor or to set up an appointment at the clinic, if necessary. Generally speaking, this feature can be used to diagnose a huge range of diseases in the future, not just COVID-19.
The team of Bamboo consisted of 1 iOS developer, 1 Android developer, a Project Manager, a Business Analyst, and (later) a UX designer. The development of an app was split between two teams: backend development was done by a third party, while Bamboo Agile was responsible for the mobile part of the solution.
We successfully designed a patient remote monitoring app for iOS and Android that incorporated a smart chatbot, scheduling features, and other functionality.
Despite the challenges that arose from the development being split between two teams, Bamboo Agile managed to optimise the workflow and continuously provide high quality mobile development services over the course of the collaboration.
