Clinic Map Website Development

Customer

A Danish service provider in the area of medical treatment and fitness. The core services are based on online websites aimed to simplify end-user experience in finding proper medical organizations and ordering their services.

Challenge

The company came to ScienceSoft to integrate a map of all the available clinics into the existing solution. The map should present the variety of medical organizations and information about them in a convenient way. The Customer also planned to integrate a rating system in order to simplify the search process.

Solution

ScienceSoft’s medical website development team made a decision to create a separate website based on the ASP.NET MVC 3. The site was designed using ASP.NET membership, users, and roles stored in the DB. In administration mode, the website is available with many pages to control the content and can be viewed only after a user passes authorization. A separate page (Controller/Action/View) was created for integration; it automatically authorizes all users as visitors and shows only the useful area of the map (no headers, footers, navigation controls) in read-only mode. Integration was done via an iFrame in the master site which hosted the map.

Results

All of the parts of the map site (administration, user view) and integration were successfully implemented and completed in time. The project is in active use and so far we receive requests from the customer for new features and improvements since the idea turned out to be very good and the exact implementation is popular among end users.
