Let Us Meet You Where You Are
Hospital app development
With decades-long experience in healthcare IT, we are ready to cover the entire process of hospital app implementation: from design and development to compliance testing and launch.
Hospital app support and evolution
Leveraging 19 years in IT security and 14 years in ITSM, we can establish comprehensive IT support, modernize legacy hospital apps with advanced functionality (AI/ML, big data), and ensure compliance.
We Let Our Customers Speak for Us
President & CEO
bioAffinity Technologies hired ScienceSoft to help in the development of its automated data analysis software for detection of lung cancer using flow cytometry. Our project required a large amount of industry specific methodology and algorithms to be implemented into our new software connected to EHR/LIS systems, which the team handled well. They are reliable, thorough, smart, available, extremely good communicators and very friendly.
Prof. Dr. Department of Biomedical Science
During our cooperation, ScienceSoft proved to have vast expertise in Healthcare and Life Science industries related to the development of a desktop software connected to laboratory equipment, mobile application, and data analytics platform. They bring top-quality talents and deep knowledge of IT technologies and approaches in accordance with ISO 13485 and IEC 62304 standards.
We engaged ScienceSoft to build an Android app that complements our web-based platform for our patients. They advised and successfully lead the way from end to end through the technical challenges and considerations with development of the app. We have also engaged them to introduce a few enhancements to the app and would certainly consider ScienceSoft as a technology partner in further software development initiatives.
Chairman & CEO
To develop a mobile application that would enhance a line of Bluetooth-enabled devices for newborn and baby care, we opened an app development tender. ScienceSoft's proof-of-concept was convincing enough for us to further the cooperation. During the project flow we were very pleased by the work of ScienceSoft’s business analysts and developers, who demonstrated high level of skills and competence.
ScienceSoft’s business analysts elicit and analyze your hospital app requirements, plan and prioritize its features, define the project scope, delivery schedule, and a risk mitigation plan. At this stage, a solution architect designs hospital app architecture, and a regulatory consultant plans the compliance strategy.
UX experts map out user journeys to make them more intuitive, and the UI team designs sleek interface elements to make the hospital app attractive for the target users.
ScienceSoft’s experienced developers split the project into 2–4 week iterations and deliver a functional MVP with a set of priority features. Based on the user feedback and the pre-agreed scope of functionality to add, the team proceeds with frequent releases of new features until the MVP turns into a full-fledged app. At this stage, the app is also integrated with other hospital IT systems directly or via APIs.
In parallel with the hospital app development, our QA team conducts functional, integration, penetration, performance testing, as well as software compliance and vulnerability assessment.
Launch, support, and maintenance
After releasing the hospital app, ScienceSoft healthcare IT support team manages the performance of the app, proactively detects and fixes defects. If required, we also conduct regular security checks and updates, manage user access, and introduce minor functional adjustments.
Healthcare software evolution
When you decide that the hospital app doesn’t cover all the business needs anymore, ScienceSoft is here to help you introduce new features, upgrade old capabilities, integrate the app with the new elements of your IT ecosystem, etc.
How to Protect Your Hospital App against Security and Compliance Risks?
Improper security measures for a hospital app may jeopardize patient information and lead to HIPAA/GDPR penalties for healthcare providers and involved parties. To avoid it from the very start, we recommend choosing an IT vendor with practical experience in HIPAA, HITECH, GDPR, and other applicable data security regulations.
At ScienceSoft, we have 19+ years of experience in information security and ensure compliance by employing data encryption, data anonymization, data access control measures, and more. After the launch of your hospital app, we can perform regular vulnerability assessments, penetration testing, and establish continuous system monitoring.
Dmitry Kurskov, Head of Information Security Department at ScienceSoft, shares his insights:
"The implementation of a virtual hospital is especially suitable for chronic diseases, rehabilitation, and mental health divisions, as they generally don’t require urgent medical attention. Using virtual hospital software, the healthcare organization can distribute the workload of doctors and nurses and allow them to monitor more patients at the same time."
Technologies We Use to Build Reliable Hospital Apps
Architecture designs and patterns
Service-oriented architecture (SOA)
Traditional 3-layer architecture
Essential for remote patient care, messaging and videoconferencing functionality enables medical staff to provide online consultations and monitor the treatment process.
With advanced software as a medical device functionality in your hospital app, you can provide state-of-the art patient care. ScienceSoft is ready to introduce SaMD features that automate and improve diagnostics, treatment delivery, or disease management.
Integrations with IT systems
To achieve data consistency throughout the organization, the hospital app should be integrated with other relevant systems. Among the must-haves are EHR, HIS, practice management software, and your patient portal.
Practical examples of advanced techs used for hospital apps
ScienceSoft’s experts share the most promising cases of advanced techs’ implementation in the hospital apps:
- Automated hospital asset tracking with RFID-based IoMT.
- Planning of complicated surgeries with VR models.
- VR-enabled doctor training.
- AI-powered chatbots for initial assessment of patient symptoms.
- Healthcare image analysis for cancer diagnostics.
