DoctorCall is a private medical company with specialist clinics in London and Manchester. Launched in 1989, DoctorCall was the first UK company to provide private visiting doctor services to both individuals and corporate clients. Their services include therapist medical care at home and has been very popular. However, the business was struggling to scale up to meet demand due to their existing technology systems.

Haulmont developers spent six months developing and implementing a sophisticated solution which would allow DoctorCall to fully automate bookings for their services. Client phone calls and online requests are registered within the system and the doctor’s estimated arrival time and price is sent to the patient. If the patient approves this quote, the request is automatically sent to the nearest available doctor.

The solution also includes analytics and data for DoctorCall to use to make informed business decisions to continue growing their business. There is also a mobile app which doctors can use to accept jobs. This app was built using Cordova Technology to enable the application to built using a single client for both Android and iOS.
