US network of medical centers needed solution facilitating the work of their employees when examining a patient. It had to be integrated with existing and future medical records available at the hospital, with the results of additional medical tests such as X-ray, computed tomography scans etc. The security requirements to the system were high.
Technologies and tools applied:
- PHP, Laravel
- DB: MySQL
3 PHP developers (1 lead and 2 middle), 1 QA, 1 business analyst, 1 project manager
Initially our client wanted the app to contain a list of options for a medical specialist to go through when examining an injured patient. During project lifecycle the client changed requirements: the results of the medical check-up should become a valid medical record stored and managed appropriately.
The final version of the app includes the following features:
- detailed list of procedures which a patient should undergo;
- on-demand integration with medical records stored and managed locally;
- support for various data types including CT and X-ray screens;
- supervision mode for more experienced professionals to follow the medical examination process.
The web-application was based at the SaaS model so that the client could save on IT support costs. IT has high level of security to protect personal medical data of patients.
