The client wanted to design a portal for doctors to arrange video consultations with patients and communication with colleagues. On the ground of the customer`s request, it was decided to choose the OpenTok library. It gave an opportunity to solve almost all main tasks such as video communication between doctor and patient and audio and video management. Doctors and patients can make video calls from mobile and desktop devices. Besides, doctors also act as administrators and can exclude patients from the conference.
Implementation of consultation management
Consultation management has been implemented as a calendar of events, which enables doctors to monitor future consultations and view detailed information about each consultation.
Use the Twilio library
For a chat creation, it was decided to use the Twilio library with the ability to save the history of correspondence. With the Twilio help, private communication channels are created, and a patient gets access to them via a doctor’s invitation.
