I am interested in development of a web-compatible

Customer Question

I am interested in development of a web-compatible application that will allow a patient/staff to access a website schedule of physicians' availabilities (starting with one physician), select an appointment slot from this schedule, and pay for that reserved slot at the time of scheduling. This would be similar to selecting your seat on a flight and paying for that flight at the time the reservation is made. The application needs to run in a web environment, and needs to accept Paypal and credit card payments to reserve these appointments. Additionally, the subscribing patien/stafft needs to submit/enter a minimal set of demographic information associated with any reservation that can be accessed by staff/physician.

I read your facts, is there a specific question with which I could assist?

Several years ago used support from Just Answer to develop a small application for a client. Again I have a need. Can you/Just Answer develop an app that allows a person to select an appointment slot from a posted schedule of availability, and 2) allow payment for that selection at the time of scheduling? If so, what would you estimate to be the cost?For example, suppose Dr. A is in fairly high demand (e.g., child psychiatrist), but who does not participate in any health insurance plans due to administrative red tape, inadequate reimbursement, etc, but is willing to be available to see patients on a pre-paid basis at 4:00, 4:30 and 4:45 on Tuesdays...I would like prospective patients to be able to open an app that lists Dr. A's appointment availabilities, allows the patient to book an appointment, and requires that the patient pay fro the service at the time the appointment is made. I think an analogy would be selecting your seat on an airplane and paying for your ticket in the same encounter. I think a prototype would include one recurring schedule with ability to pay by Paypal or credit card. Probably a smartphone app would be the most accessible platform.
