MDLIVE 3.0 framework makes it easier for health systems to launch telehealth apps


Telehealth company MDLIVE has released MDLIVE 3.0, a new mobile development framework along with an enhanced software development kit (SDK), and an updated Android app.

MDLIVE’s new framework makes it faster and easier for MDLIVE clients such as hospitals, health systems and health plans to launch their own branded “Powered by MDLIVE” telemedicine mobile apps.

“There are many hospitals, health systems and health plans that do not have the resources or expertise to develop a telemedicine app to support their mobile strategy,” Randy Parker, founder and CEO of MDLIVE, said in a statement. “MDLIVE Version 3.0 has been redesigned from the ground up, making it a powerful platform that can be leveraged to meet the increasing demand for mobile telehealth apps from our customer base.”

As for the Android app, it has been revamped from the ground up, featuring “streamlined user experience” that makes it easier for user to accomplish a wide range of tasks such as holding HD video consultations with a doctor, adding a photo to help with the diagnosis, registering family members, syncing health data with MDLIVE, and scheduling appointments with a preferred doctor.

Future enhancements will include the integration of Breakthrough, MDLIVE’s behavioral health service into the MDLIVE app, providing users with the option to schedule and consult with a therapist or doctor.

MDLIVE allows consumers to virtually visit a doctor 24/7/365 from their home, office or in the go. The company’s main competitors include American Well, Doctor On Demand and Teladoc.
