Real-time Telemedicine Platform For Video-Consulting






Increase in on doctor-on-demand service for a hospital

Creating an easy and accessible platform for meeting real-time medical needs

Telehealth, aka telemedicine, is the remote delivery of medical care and general health services. Real-time telemedicine allows patients and physicians to communicate synchronously through a video, audio, or chatroom platform. 

This approach became increasingly popular during the pandemic when physical contact was limited. In addition to ensuring that healthcare services are available anywhere, anytime, telemedicine also takes a stand when accessing specialized care and saving money.

A USA-based client tasked TechVariable with designing and developing a telehealth MVP allowing patients to participate in video consultations and healthcare practitioners to access medical history and treatment records.

Understanding the challenge

The problem statement meant incorporating two core features: virtual consultations and patient record management. 

Our team used to working with sensitive PHI and adhering to HIPPA rules and regulations, implemented a database integrated with a third-party EHR system reasonably easily. 

The video-conferencing module meant solving the fundamental problem that firewalls or network limitations sometimes prevent direct contact. The solution was to use a CoTURN Server as the Relay server. In the event of an increase in load, the server has to be horizontally scaled. This thus results in two circumstances:

  • Multiple servers imply multiple IP addresses; however, for the same set of end users, multiple IP addresses are impossible at a time. 
  • Permanent scaling meant paying for services irrespective of load.

How we made it happen

User-friendly interface and design, focusing on ease of use for healthcare professionals and patients.


A video conferencing tool using WebRTC technology combined with a TURN server scaled with Kubernetes, allowing for high-quality video consultations. Kubernetes load balancer effectively splits a single IP address to multiple TURN servers.


The health practitioner can view the patient’s medical records in real-time during video consultations. This was accessed through a three-split tab that included the following:

  • A video conference tab that displayed the patient on the screen
  • A tab that viewed patient’s forms, medical records, and past prescriptions
  • A tab that helped practitioners make medical notes and prescribe more tests or medicines


The project manager successfully kept the cross-functional team motivated, discussed roadblocks, and managed goals all within a given time frame. The project documentation was carried out through the creation of the project plan, GANTT charts, and work breakdown structure.

Modules implemented

Video-conferencing service

Enabled patients and healthcare providers to communicate with each other through video and audio using a computer. 

Patient record management

A database system integrating available EHR systems for storing and managing patient records, including medical history, test results, and treatment plans.
