Problem and Solution Summary

The client's problem was that existing doctor search apps were not convenient or reliable enough. They often offered incomplete or inaccurate information about doctors and lacked user security.

Computools offered the client the following solutions to address their concerns.

  • We developed an app that allows users to quickly and easily find the right doctor in their area. The app uses geolocation to find doctors in the user's vicinity.
  • We also implemented a doctor verification system to ensure users receive care from qualified professionals. The vetting system includes document verification, a rating system and internal evaluation.
  • In addition, we have added several features to the app that make it more convenient and safer for users. For example, the app can book an appointment with a doctor at a clinic, view the route to the doctor and leave reviews about doctors.

Project Description

The following features were implemented during the development of the Yrgent app.

  • Online consultations: Users can get a doctor's consultation online from the comfort of their own home.
  • Booking appointments: Users can book an appointment with a doctor at a clinic.

Story of a Team Decision

Computools sought to assemble a team of developers with deep knowledge of modern technologies, including machine learning and artificial intelligence technologies.

Backstage

Backstage is a team collaboration space where developers can socialise, share ideas and solve problems.

Sprint Retrospective

A sprint retrospective is a team meeting where lessons learnt from the previous sprint are discussed.

Planning Session

A planning session is a team meeting where tasks for the next sprint are planned.

Sprint Demo

A sprint demo is a team meeting to showcase the work results from the previous sprint.

Communication Flow

Project Management Methodology

Scrum was chosen as the methodology to accelerate and maintain productivity on the project. Using Scrum as one of the most popular methods of the Agile approach has repeatedly proven to be effective, especially while working on projects where the result is needed quickly.

Continuous testing and verification of the results lead to high efficiency and operability of the application. Scrum development encourages active product owner and stakeholder involvement throughout the product development. Transparency is therefore much higher for key stakeholders, both in the project’s progress and in the product itself, which helps ensure that expectations are effectively managed. In Agile development, change is accepted and expected. Often the timescale is fixed, and detailed requirements emerge and evolve as the product is developed.
