AT A GLANCE

Our client, a healthcare company, needed an effective tool for transplant patients to adhere to their medication regimens. Our team helped by developing an app with a modernised system that simplifies medication schedules. Computools assisted in achieving significant business benefits, including increased user throughput, order value, productivity, and revenue, while reducing costs and automating business processes.

THE CLIENT

The client is a representative of the healthcare and pharmaceutical industry in the United States. They deeply understand the problem the project addresses and are interested in additional aspects, such as education and positive reinforcement for medication adherence.

BUSINESS CHALLENGE

The project’s primary aim was to address the crucial need for timely medication adherence, especially for individuals dealing with various diseases and post-procedural recovery. Recognising the importance of strict medication schedules, the project focused on creating an application to remind patients to take their next dose of medicine accurately at the required time. The project aimed to make the medication schedule process enjoyable and straightforward. Users could easily download the application from the marketplace.

SOLUTION SUMMARY

We created an attractive and interactive design and used NodeJS, Parse Server and MongoDB technologies to create a system that offers an optimal user experience and effectively addresses the competition in the healthcare app market.

The main flow of the project included essential features such as scheduling immunosuppression medications, a notifications system, a gamification system for rewarding users who took medications on time, and the integration of educational information. The application also featured an alarm system, a comprehensive medications list, an email medications system, a Contact Us system for user support, and flexible dose and time control options.

IMPACT

In the development process, ready-made solutions and individual developments for some tasks were applied. The finished application’s intuitive and catchy design has attracted the attention of a wide audience. Thus, the project goals were fully achieved. A key achievement was building an application that would reach the widest audience interested in taking meds on a schedule.

PROJECT MANAGEMENT METHODOLOGY

Application development is conducted as efficiently as possible according to the agile methodology. Scrum was chosen for this project, and the workflow was divided into convenient segments—sprints. During the sprint, code was developed in the task frame. At the end of the sprint, all participants in the project carried out a check and sent a report on the work done. This allowed errors and bugs to be identified and eliminated in the early stages, ensuring the developed code’s stability, purity, and high performance.

The key benefits of using Scrum are the quicker release of a useable product to users and customers, higher quality, higher productivity, lower costs, greater ability to incorporate changes as they occur, better employee morale and better user satisfaction.
