The client wanted a centralised solution which could virtually connect the patients to therapists in a seamless way. The current platform used legacy tools and technologies which were not cost-effective or scalable and the client wanted to tackle that. In a span of just 4 months, Velotio delivered an end-to-end solution - one that was intuitive, user-friendly, offered excellent patient-therapist experience and was still cost-effective.
Our client is a UK-based leading health-tech company that uses cognitive behavioural therapy, talk therapy, medication, and clinically validated tech tools such as virtual reality to help patients achieve mental wellness.
The client aims to tackle the structural inefficiencies along with the demand-supply gap in the mental health system and has received a total funding of over $ 26 million.
When the pandemic hit, the demand for mental health services increased significantly, causing a massive spike in traffic for the client. The platform virtually connected therapists to patients and with this surge, the client realised a noticeable gap in the scalability and cost-effectiveness of the platform.
They quickly assessed the existing infrastructure and performance issues and listed the following concerns that needed to be addressed:
The client wanted to offer seamless patient-therapist experiences through an intuitive, user-friendly and cost-effective centralised solution. They were eyeing a round of funding and needed to showcase incremental progress to its potential investors.
Working with Velotio felt like they were a part of our own team. We especially appreciate how well they maintained the remote collaboration. Regular stand-ups and daily huddles ensured better transparency for all stakeholders, which amounted to better control over the project. Also, since the revamp the feedback that we have received from the users on the platform's usability is very good.
The client chose Velotio, because of our expertise in modern cloud engineering, designing solutions, extensive knowledge in crafting digital experiences, and our UI/UX prowess.
The product vision required the platform to be reimagined and built from scratch. The compressed timeline of only 4 months meant that the team needed to act fast.
The project was assigned to an experienced engineering team comprising Technical Leads, UI Experts, Frontend Engineers, Backend Engineers, and DevOps Engineers. After interactive sessions and brainstorming with the primary stakeholders, the team proposed that the solution should be divided into 2 phases.
Phase 1: Improving scalability and performance of the patient portal:
Phase 2: Designing a centralized platform for therapists:
In a span of 4 months, the team blended technical expertise with the client’s product vision to deliver a transformative and seamless patient-therapist experience. We were able to transform the patient portal through which patients could seek assistance and access custom therapy plans. As for therapists, the portal served as a go-to solution which managed everything, allowing them to focus solely on their patient's well-being.
