Mobile applications can contribute to increasing the effectiveness and reducing the costs of healthcare delivery as well as preventing illnesses through behaviour change. This paper presents model of an interactive mobile healthcare application that facilitates the needs between doctors and patients. The proposed mobile application will provide optimal communication to several parties in the healthcare sector such as patients, doctors and pharmacists for better healthcare services and delivery. The software development methodology adopted was Object Oriented Analysis and Design Methodology (OOADM). Our mobile application is developed for Android platform and HTML, CSS and JS were used at the front-end while Angula JS, PHP and MYSQL powered the back-end.
