Hospital management system development

What we offer

hospital management software development 1

Hospital and clinic information (HIS/CIS)

Hospital/clinic information systems can be developed with a modular structure to collect and process various data coming from different departments. HIS acts as an integrator capable of facilitating operations management of the hospital. HIS covers two datasets: patient care info and hospital staff management info. Patient treatment, hospital facilities, administrative issues, customer support, and human resources all run under the strategic management provided by HIS. Hospital information systems provide the most comprehensive outlook of hospital activities enhanced by digital technologies.

Electronic records (EHR/EMR)

Electronic health records have long become a must-have element of modern healthcare practice. EHR is as indispensable for hospitals as CRM is for any commercial project today. Healthcare organizations use EHR to collect and store information about patients. EHR can be created as either a standalone software product or an integral part of a more comprehensive hospital management system. EHR can include individual modules for patients through which they can perform a lot of treatment-related activities such as paying for healthcare service, checking recovery progress, finding medication prescriptions. EMR (electronic medical records) is a subtype of EHR dedicated to the narrower specific data such as dosage, procedures, bedside notes, and the like.

Practice management (PMS)

Practice management software is another type of healthcare-related program we develop. PMS can be designed individually to meet the specific needs of a particular medical institution. As a highly customized sort of medical software, PMS can include such modules as e-prescribing sections, telemedicine features, automated scheduling, remote treatment support, and many more. Medical practices may vary very much, but our engineers are experienced enough to be agile in meeting the individual needs of different healthcare organizations. We create custom PMS to assist doctors and hospitals in making their specific practices easily manageable with user-friendly software products.

System architecture and integration

We support modular architectures when software is designed to be either an integral part of a more comprehensive program or a standalone software product. We never seek to monopolize the entire infrastructure of our customers. On the contrary, our deep expertise in healthcare software development allows our engineers to create easily integrable modules for already existing systems. Neither the scope nor complexity can prevent our developers from building fully-fledged software architectures for all types of healthcare organizations. Our wide previous experience in healthcare software development makes us equally confident in creating, for example, a new embeddable payment gateway for an existing HIS as well as in building holistic all-in-one ecosystems for clinics and hospitals.

Benefits of our hospital management software development services

Vast engineering experience

Big words remain hollow rhetoric without being backed up by the finished software solutions that the satisfied clients sincerely appreciate. We proudly share our portfolio to demonstrate the vast engineering experience we have gained. Nothing better says about our software development capabilities than the grateful feedback we regularly receive from our customers. The variety of healthcare software solutions DICEUS has already created for clients from different sectors debunks any suspected limit that our engineers can face regarding one or another software technology. The only thing we require from our potential customers is just their ideas on the solutions they need. Vast engineering experience provides DICEUS developers doing all the rest to let the ideas come true.

Healthcare solutions expertise

Medical specifics can erect a particular knowledge barrier for software developers who stay far from the healthcare sector. This is not so for DICEUS, however. The available deep expertise in healthcare software development allows our engineers to grasp those medical nuances that many of our rivals have never heard about. Hospital workflows imply special solutions, which, in turn, may require unconventional software development approaches. It is crucial to understand what doctors and hospital managers talk about not to turn the development process into an endless mess. DICEUS engineers are not doctors, of course, but long-term collaboration with clients from the healthcare sector allows us to think like medical staff when developing hospital management software. This is about our healthcare solutions expertise that matters.

Organized project management

Whatever functionality one or another healthcare solution might imply, continuous communication with the end customer is crucial not to confuse wishful thinking with the actual user needs. However, software architects have enough to do besides talking to customers. This is why we rely on our talented project managers. Their strategic thinking helps the entire development lifecycle be as consistent as efficient. What’s more, we would never have finished so many successful healthcare projects unless our project management has been really well-organized. This is about time-saving routines with no redundant iterations when project managers act as vibrant links between developers and customers. The most extraordinary projects become easily manageable if perceptive communicators keep customer expectations under the radar.

Flexible cooperation

Each project is individual in software development: there are no serial products there. That’s why flexibility is what helps software developers stay afloat. DICEUS appreciates every minute that our customers invest in cooperation with us. This applies equally to both project managers who coordinate communication between customers and developers over each development lifecycle and customer support specialists who provide 24/7 assistance when healthcare software solutions are deployed. We are always keen to aggregate any user experience of our clients to be as flexible as possible in meeting customer expectations. DICEUS believes that true cooperation has no time limit: if you once order healthcare software from us, you will always remain our partner no matter how long ago your project has been finished.

Our hospital management system development process

Business analysis

No standard one-fits-all solutions are available in hospital management software development. Even though the key types of healthcare software are widely known, there are too many individual features to be taken into consideration in every particular use case. They become clear with a meticulous business analysis to be performed before programmers put their fingers on keyboards. Our development team, project managers, and a customer all participate in it on an equal footing. The analysis covers just business issues due to a couple of reasons: 1) purely technical questions regarding the development technologies to be used for achieving the great usability of the finished product remain for DICEUS, not for customers; 2) the ongoing healthcare-as-a-service paradigm requires business-like approaches to satisfy both doctors and patients. Look before you leap, as they say.

Development

After all the tiniest project nuances are analyzed to avoid misunderstanding between developers and customers, the intensive programming workflows start running along the development lifecycle. DICEUS uses various development lifecycle methods (Waterfall, Agile, Iterative, V-shaped, etc.) depending on particular features of each healthcare software product. Similar development processes are hardly applicable to such different products as, for instance, an e-prescribing mobile app and a compute-intensive MRI imaging solution. Whatever lifecycle method is selected, however, the process starts from a designing stage based on the SDS (software design specification) created by both architects and managers as a result of the underwent business analysis. Customers can be involved in the process, especially when an iterative development method is practiced.

Testing and QA

Nobody is perfect, and software engineers are no exception. The more complicated the healthcare solution is, the more frequent the tests have to be performed over the development lifecycle. Quality assurance goes far beyond testing just ready healthcare software. It begins before coding starts and lasts after the finished product is released. DICEUS never ignores QA planning and always makes records of every test. This helps us follow the so-called test-driven development, one of the main principles of such an agile method as extreme programming. When some changes in software functionality are desired, our programmers write tests for their code. Since we prefer frequent releases in short cycles, the highest code quality is usually achieved through pretty time-saving workflows.

Deployment support

Full operability out-of-the-box is what we are trying to provide with all our healthcare software. At the same time, we would like to track progress and manage changes in our deployments. This is why DICEUS appreciates CI/CD (continuous integration/continuous deployment) techniques. In addition to getting fresh ideas about our healthcare software, we have some other reasons for using CI/CD. First, we would like to provide our customers with seamless updates. Second, we strive to optimize the efficiency of our deployments through valuable metrics and timeline indicators, allowing us to deliver better healthcare software products in less time.

What impacts your project duration

The timeframe of every particular project is individual, especially when it comes to healthcare software. Many critical factors should be considered to define a more or less exact duration of the entire development process. In any case, our specialists will do their best to deliver your healthcare software in the shortest possible period without compromising the quality, however. The following factors can impact your project duration, inter alia:

  • Project requirements
  • Expected deadlines
  • Team composition
  • Chosen technology and platforms

What affects your project costs

In general, the number of working hours of various specialists engaged in the healthcare software development process determines the cost of a finished product since an hourly rate is the most typical job evaluation method in software development. Hence, the final cost of your project will depend on the time we have to spend to complete your project from A to Z. The following factors can determine your project’s budget:

  • Project scope and complexity
  • Chosen technology
  • Project completion urgency
  • Engagement model: Fixed Price, Time and Material, Dedicated Team

What we need from your side

It is rare to get a clear SDS (software design specification) from a customer: quite specific data should be indicated there. That’s why we always propose to arrange an online meeting during which our engineers and project managers can ask a customer about all the nuances they should know regarding the healthcare software product to be developed. Please provide us with this info to simplify our task:
  • Project goals, vision, and roadmap if exist
  • High-level project requirements
  • Project-specific documentation if available
  • Client’s availability for weekly gathering sessions.

Frequently asked questions

Can you prove your hospital management software expertise?

Seeing is believing, right? Please visit the healthcare software section of our portfolio to check the healthcare software solutions we have already created. There you can find brief descriptions of the projects covering both the challenges we have faced and the solutions we have developed. All of the use cases include no virtual prototypes showing only those healthcare software products that have been launched successfully. Besides, you can find our customers’ feedback there.

How do you differ from the others in terms of healthcare software?

There are two types of software development companies: highly specialized ones that create a certain type of software only and multi-service companies that take whatever order available. The first ones are usually limited by quite a narrow set of approaches and technologies they consider the most relevant to the sector they serve. The second ones can rarely achieve truly deep expertise in healthcare software development due to their omnivorous business strategy. In contrast to both types. We know exactly what functionality healthcare software requires to have while our rich healthcare software development expertise shows us multiple ways how to achieve the functionality.

Do you provide IT consulting and software architecture services?

Both IT consulting and software architecture services are important elements of our activity. We always seek to share our knowledge with anyone who needs this. All our specialists are sincere advocates of the widest possible IT literacy. We consult our customers “on the go” for free when they participate in the development process. Standalone IT consulting and software architecture services are available as well even if no software product is ordered to develop.
