Why ReactJS Web Development Improves Patient Care Quality

Why ReactJS Web Development Improves Patient Care Quality

Improved patient care and improving the overall patient experience is critical for the healthcare industry. Patients and families realize they have a choice when it comes to selecting a primary caregiver, specialist, or hospital. The future of your healthcare practice, facility, or health care system depends on providing high quality patient care and improving the overall patient experience

One of the easiest ways to achieve both goals is through the use of technology. Today, we’re going to look at why ReactJS web development improves patient care quality, and by extension, improves the patient experience.

North Studio has years of experience in React development. Over the years, our highly skilled front end developers have used ReactJS to create many beautiful, cost-effective and user friendly websites and applications.

What Is ReactJS?

Developed by Facebook engineers, ReactJS is an open sourced JavaScript library we use to build user interfaces. Or more simply, it’s a tool we use to define the user experience (UX). We use it on the front end of your website and applications — with front end meaning what users see and interact with, as opposed to the back end, which is the server side of things that controls how your website works. Users cannot see the back end. 

While there are many ways that ReactJS software development can help improve patient care quality, we’ll focus on what we believe to be the top 3:

1. Patient Care Information Updated in Real Time with ReactJS

According to statistics from the Canadian Patient Safety Institute, medical error is the third leading cause of death in Canada. And any healthcare provider or administrator in the United States knows that medical error is the third highest cause of death in the country (pre-COVID-19).

What if we told you that utilizing ReactJS in your facility or practice could reduce medical error? That’s because patient care information is updated in real time with ReactJS. And that information is available to any health care worker with access to your system.

No worries about not being able to read a doctor’s handwriting, or concern about whether the patient is getting the correct dosage of medication, at the right time, or whether they have contraindications. Everything from vital signs to imaging to test results appears in the medical record instantaneously.

And healthcare providers can use ReactJS applications to keep track of patients after discharge to ensure they are recovering as planned, have good medication adherence, and more. In this way, you can reduce hospital readmissions or recurrence of symptoms.

2. Healthcare Professionals Have Accurate Access to Critical Information

In addition to having the latest bit of information about the patient at your fingertips, ReactJS apps can also tell you where the nearest ventilator is, or who the on call neurosurgeon is. You can also see immediately if an OR is open or if the ICU has an open bed. 

Your pharmacy knows if inventory is running low on saline or the turnover rate has suddenly grown exponentially for Valsartan. You can maintain adequate nurse staffing by keeping an eye on scheduling issues and nurse to patient ratios.

And hospital and practice administrators will have access to everything at any time, allowing them to see the big picture and head off problems while they are small.

3. Enhanced Patient Experience with ReactJS

Patients today expect not only a good clinical outcome, but an exceptional experience. Most patients are digitally savvy, and carry smartphones and have WiFi at home. Patients expect to be able to interact online with a healthcare provider without making a phone call to an annoying phone tree or sending an email that gets an auto response.

By creating a personalized patient experience with ReactJS applications, you engage patients (and prospective patients) and make it easy for them to participate fully in their care. Personalization helps people save time and make informed decisions. Be the provider who knows a patient best – and shows it through services and recommendations especially for them. That results in being valued, and recommended as a top choice in your area of healthcare expertise.  

Types of React Applications for Improved Patient Care

Any application we create will meet or exceed the requirements of Canada’s Personal Information Protection and Electronic Document Act (PIPEDA), the United States’ Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA), or Europe’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). 

We use ReactJS for web app development and React native for mobile app development. 

Options on the patient care and administration side include:

  • Telemedicine Apps
  • Remote Patient Management
  • Health Tracking
  • Medical Reference
  • SOAP Notes
  • Intranet and Extranet
  • Electronic Health Records (EHR) and Electronic Medical Records (EMR)
  • Practice Management
  • Inventory Management
  • Medical Equipment Tracker
  • Billing

Options on the patient experience side include apps for:

  • Self Monitoring & Reminders
  • Prescription Adherence and Refilling
  • Symptom Checks
  • Online Appointment Scheduling
  • Patient Portal for Secure Communication
  • Mental Health 
  • Chronic Disease Management
  • Nutrition & Wellness
  • Fitness & Rehabilitation

And of course, there are many more options. As a top ReactJS development company, we can create an application that does just about anything you need it to. This includes chatbots, AI, We can also make it so that web apps are accessible to all, with the addition of the following:

  • Voice input 
  • Magnification
  • Visual and vibrating alerts 
  • Video conferencing 
  • Color and UI design adaptation 

We don’t have to reinvent the wheel with each application. Because ReactJS gives us the ability to create modular and reusable components, we can create new applications with speed without sacrificing quality and functionality.

While this may all sound incredibly complicated, it’s simpler than it sounds.
