Q-Consultation Lite, Open Source Code

Today we’re excited to announce the launch of Q-Consultation Lite, our free, open source software for video consultation and chat. Designed to address any number of business use cases where virtual private rooms are needed, Q-Consultation Lite offers high-quality, secure video calling and chat messaging. What’s more, it’s completely free to copy and run from our GitHub repository!

Introducing Q-Consultation Lite

You may already be familiar with Q-Consultation. We launched our premium version during the height of Covid-19 to meet the growing demand for secure remote video consultation across a variety of industries, but especially healthcare. This white-label premium version is a fully managed service packed with additional features like a scheduler.

Given the on-going demand for teleconsultation software we have decided to release a free “lite” version to make it as accessible as possible. Now anyone can visit our repository to run the source code and access detailed documentation to plug in and play.

“Q-Consultation was originally built to meet the extraordinary demand from QuickBlox’s customers for digital and remote communication solutions during COVID-19. After trialing the software with several healthcare organizations, we saw the firsthand benefits, such as reducing the cost of no-show appointments and pressure on clinical resources,” Nate MacLeitch, CEO of QuickBlox.

The software is easily integrable with existing company platforms and is a web-and mobile-responsive application compatible with iOS, Android, and the Web. Developers can also modify the software’s code to enhance features such as language, icons, and data capture fields while adapting the user interface to fit the identities and branding of specific companies. And if companies choose to use the free app with the paid QuickBlox HIPAA cloud plan, they would also be HIPAA-compliant with a Business Associate Agreement (BAA).
