How We Develop Chronic Disease Management Software

Chronic disease management software development aims to create solutions that factor in disease-specific conditions, symptoms, treatments, and ways of patient monitoring to help healthcare providers improve patient care and outcomes. At ScienceSoft, we follow a time-tested structured approach to deliver reliable and effective CDM solutions fitting your unique needs.


Requirements gathering and solution conceptualization

Requirements gathering and solution conceptualization

We shape your solution's concept by delving into user sentiments and pain points, analyzing competitor offerings, and crafting user personas and prototypes. Our healthcare IT consultants define functional and non-functional CDMS requirements, while regulatory consultants determine software compliance needs (e.g., adherence to HIPAA, GDPR, MOHAP, FDA clearance)




CDMS design

CDMS design

We design the solution’s architecture (microservices-based, cloud-native, containerized, etc.) and integrations (with other software, medical devices, wearables), focusing on scalability, security, and flexibility for future evolution. To ensure high user engagement and satisfaction, we design an intuitive UX and an accessible UI tailored to the needs of patients, physicians, and nurse practitioners.




Agile development and quality assurance

Agile development and quality assurance

ScienceSoft usually relies on Scrum or Kanban methodologies to develop chronic disease management software in short iterations. We break complex projects into smaller steps with manageable deliverables to enable continuous progress tracking and agile change management based on stakeholder feedback.

We conduct functional, performance, usability, integration, and security testing in parallel with development and use pre-built components (e.g., UI elements, AI transcription and speech recognition modules) as much as possible to reduce the solution’s delivery time. This way, you can expect to get an MVP with high-priority CDM features in as little as four months.

To ensure reliability every step of the way, we rigidly follow ISO 9001, ISO 13485, and ISO 27001 protocols.




Compliance review

Compliance review

At every SDLC stage, we ensure that your CDM solution aligns with the pertinent standards and regulations, including HIPAA, HITECH, HITRUST, ADA, and PCI DSS.

If your solution qualifies as SaMD (e.g., it features AI-based diagnostics or medication dosage calculation), it is subject to FDA 510(k), MDR, or similar regulations. In this case, we submit it to the relevant authorities for clearance.

We also prioritize adherence to healthcare data exchange standards such as FHIR, DICOM, HL7, LOINC, ICD-10, CPT, and XDS/XDS-I, ensuring interoperability and seamless communication across healthcare systems.
