I have searched many free medical application but I did not find a single application that provides all remote medical facilities to a patient.
A journey of  illness to wellness requires a comprehensive medical app that provides all the needs of patients & health care staff is not available yet.
There is a gap and we can fill it by making such comprehensive apps that fulfill the needs of patients and health professionals. 
We should work for the following suggestions to make a free medical apps
1-We should create a symptoms checker that include all patients need (mentioned in step-1).We should design a Symptom checker we must keep in mind the symptoms of COVID-19
2-We should choose a doctor for patient’s illness
3-We should know about the use of medicines e.g timing, before or after meal, drug interactions
4-We should avoid communication gaps between doctor & patient (Med app will make communication between doctor & patient in the form of daily monitoring charts) 
5-We should keep a proper record of patient medical diagnosis history & investigation
6-We should create a multispecialty group to discuss a patient that has multiple diseases.
7-We should provide different medical calculator for health professionals
8-App may be used for hospitals/clinics  or any institution also. but all have access according to their need.
9-App must include instructions about infection control awareness
10-App include instructions for pre & post surgical procedures
11-App must provide a secure data method for the  privacy of patients. 
12.We should include preventive measures for diseases and infections
13. Apps should provide a check list of all aspects to monitor health on a regular basis before illness.
