Why do you focus on healthcare?
All humans get sick. Stresses, an increasingly poor ecological environment, and digital transformation have helped to catalyze the mobile healthcare market. According to Zion Market Research, the global mHealth market is expected to reach USD 102 billion capitalization by 2022. The market is permanently increasing with the human population growth, so well designed mobile practices became crucial for any healthcare and wellness business.
What problem is EGO Creative Innovations solving?
Digital transformation has put tremendous pressure on healthcare providers who need to keep up with the fast pace of technological change. We ease the growing societal pressure for better healthcare services through the use of user-friendly mobile applications that provide higher personnel productivity and improved customer experiences.
Why should healthcare providers develop apps?
Private healthcare business is driven by value-based care, so optimising the patient experience is key. In the current ‘smartphone age’ the best way to communicate with patients is through dynamic and intelligent mobile apps. Based on our own statistics, 97% of business owners confirmed the financial benefits of being able to provide an app as part of their service offering.

What advice would you give healthcare entrepreneurs?
Generally I would recommend entrepreneurs to invest money into healthcare digital products. It’s much more inspiring not only to be able to make money by building a software service but also serve the community. Look at us! One of the most outstanding projects we’ve been involved in is CentralReach, a Florida-based provider of electronic health records (EHR) and ADHD/ASD practice management software for clinics. This was a special case which involved a clever concept developed by CentralReach aimed at children with developmental disabilities, their parents and doctors.
Being engaged into ADHD/ASD projects, it has incentivised us to make a real difference to somebody’s life.
Do doctors enjoy using apps in their work?
Absolutely! There are so many apps and features to ease their daily caseload. Most of the clients request a so-called “standard” package:
- Clinical data collection
- Patients’ health records
- Work schedule and timer
- Video recording option during the therapy session to share with colleagues
- Offline data synchronization
