Problem and Solution Summary

The client was challenged with disparate sources of patient metrics, the absence of a standard calculation system, and fragmented calculation methods on local modules. These issues complicated data analysis, patient support and overall medical information management, introducing considerable chaos into the processes of healthcare institutions.

Computools addressed these challenges by developing a technology stack, including .NET, C#, ASP.NET MVC, and leveraging Azure for data storage. This facilitated the creation of the centralised Medirect system, unifying diverse data sources, implementing a standardised calculation system, and streamlining the analysis and processing of medical information. The result was an improvement in the efficiency of medical staff, increased diagnostic accuracy, and a reduction in the risk of errors. Collectively, these outcomes led to an increased market share for the client and an enhancement in overall healthcare service quality.

About the Client

The customer is a start-up in the healthcare industry. The company has a number of advantages, such as the use of a neural network to analyse data, qualified medical staff, advanced medical equipment and an advanced data security system.

Outcome

Medirect's share within the healthcare solutions market has increased by 15% since the launch of the web solution, allowing the start-up to enter the competitive segment. This has been made possible by experimental solutions, sophisticated artificial intelligence, and neural network technology.

Story in depth

The client, being a healthcare start-up, realised the importance of choosing the right contractor for the development of their Medirect project. To do so, the client conducted a thorough screening process, looking at several potential software developer options.

While evaluating contractors, the client focused on factors such as experience in the healthcare industry, technological expertise, past project portfolios, and references from previous clients. Computools' expertise in web development and big data was an important consideration which set it apart from the competition.

Project Description

Medirect is an off-the-shelf solution for health-related institutions. The project aimed to help medical clinics create an environment for assessing patients' health status, saving and maintaining their medication prescriptions, and keeping a general medical history.

The app allows logging in on three levels: doctor, nurse or administrator.

The project has the unique feature of generating recommendations for the patient through sophisticated algorithms and data analysis. It is done by analysing data from various sensors, medical testing, medical records and pedigree data. Patient diagnoses and recommendations are generated through a neural network, which has become an experimental solution in this particular case.
