Healthcare Software Development Company Hiring Guide

What is a healthcare software company?

A healthcare software company is a specialized firm that develops, provides, and maintains software solutions tailored to the specific needs and challenges of the healthcare industry. These diverse and complex needs include patient care management, electronic health records (EHR), telemedicine, billing, scheduling, and regulatory compliance, among others. 

By combining their domain expertise with the latest technologies, these are the ways that software development experts help healthcare providers: 

  • Streamline and automate their administrative processes 
  • Improve and personalize their patient experience 
  • Achieve seamless interoperability among different healthcare systems and platforms 
  • Ensure the security and privacy of patient data 
  • Improve diagnosis and predictive diagnosis using smart medical devices and systems 
  • Monitor and track medical equipment 
  • Manage relationships with third-party organizations such as insurance companies and suppliers 
  • And more 

Medical software companies cater to hospitals, clinics, private practices, and insurance companies. Each of these clients presents unique challenges, such as the need for precise and efficient patient data management systems. They may also require the integration of new technologies like AI for predictive analytics. Furthermore, ensuring compliance with healthcare regulations like the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA), the Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health (HITECH) Act, and the Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act (MACRA) is also one of the essential requirements. 

One of the key products developed by healthcare software companies is electronic health records (EHRs). EHRs transform healthcare by providing quick access to patient records, thereby improving the ability to diagnose and reduce medical errors. A national survey highlighted that 94% of healthcare providers found EHRs to make records more accessible at the point of care, 88% reported clinical benefits for their practice, and 75% felt EHRs allowed them to deliver better patient care. 

The projected revenue of US$193.70 billion in 2024, along with an estimated annual growth rate (CAGR 2024-2028) of 9.16% and a projected market volume of US$275.00 billion by 2028, clearly demonstrates the strong demand for healthcare software and digital health solutions. 

What does a healthcare software developer do?

A healthcare software developer creates and maintains software solutions specifically for the healthcare industry. Some of their responsibilities include: 

  • Building software solutions that house digital medical records that can be accessed from a variety of secure places 
  • Creating websites, apps, and wearables for medical practitioner or patient use 
  • Maintaining digital systems that store important medical information, including study results, lab work, and patient medical records 
  • Facilitating digital communication between healthcare organizations 

Some of the sectors these developers power include: 

  • Telehealth/telemedicine 
  • Diagnostics 
  • Nutrition 
  • Health and wellness 
  • Medical Devices 
  • Medical Laboratory 
  • Hospital Management System 

Hola Meds - Pharmacy Delivery is an Australian pharmacy marketplace app developed by Suffescom Solutions. It serves as an excellent illustration of the diverse and impactful services offered by healthcare software development companies. The app demonstrates several key features and functionalities that cater to modern healthcare needs: 

  • Medicine purchase and delivery 
  • Discounts on healthcare products 
  • Order reordering and tracking 
  • Health-related content 
  • Cost-free medicine returns 

This example shows how healthcare software developers, besides creating digital solutions, significantly improve accessibility, convenience, and engagement in healthcare services. Apps like Hola Meds blend eCommerce, information dissemination, and logistics, tailored specifically for the healthcare sector. 

What are the official guidelines for medical software development? 

Official guidelines for medical software development must align with an international standard published by the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC), called IEC 62304. This standard ensures the performance of new medical software and mandates a process that each healthcare software development life cycle should follow. 

According to IEC 62304, new medical software should follow these steps: 

  1. Software development planning
  2. Software requirements analysis 
  3. Software architectural design 
  4. Software detailed design 
  5. Software unit implementation and verification 
  6. Software integration and integration testing 
  7. Software system testing 
  8. Software release 

Each step includes detailed information that every healthcare software company must document and supply in order to be considered compliant with international standards. 

Additionally, there are three levels of IEC 62304 compliance regarding software safety: 

  • Class A: cannot cause injury or damage to health and requires software document numbers 1, 2, 5, and 8 above. 
  • Class B: could cause non-serious injury and requires software solutions document numbers 1, 2, 3, 5, 6, 7, and 8 above. 
  • Class C: could cause death or serious injury and requires all medical software documents listed above. 

To comply with IEC 62304, a medical company should also outline items such as: 

  • Risk management processes 
  • Medical software maintenance plans 
  • Record maintenance 
  • And more 

What are the different types of healthcare technology?

Different types of healthcare technology include electronic health records (EHRs), hospital management software (HMS), medical practice management software (MPMS), ePrescribing software, and urgent care applications. 

Electronic Health Record (EHR) Software 

EHR software is a digital system that stores comprehensive patient health information such as patient demographic data, medical history, treatments, and laboratory results. It allows for this data to be shared across different healthcare providers. 

EHRs offer several advantages over traditional paper-based records, such as reducing medical errors, requiring less storage space, and providing easier access for both physicians and patients.  

This type of software aligns with the growing demand for integrated patient care, as it allows physicians to share critical patient information seamlessly, thereby improving the quality of treatment. 

EHR is often confused with EMR (electronic medical records), but although similar, these two types of software significantly differ. EMRs are digital versions of patient records specific to one office or provider. On the other hand, EHRs are more comprehensive and designed to be accessed and shared across different healthcare facilities, providing a broader view of a patient’s health history. 

Hospital Management Software (HMS) 

HMS improves the efficiency of every section of a hospital, from the reception area to the laboratories and doctors’ offices. This software plays a crucial role in managing daily hospital administration, thereby allowing medical professionals to devote more time to patient care rather than paperwork. 

Medical Practice Management Software (MPMS) 

MPMS addresses the operational needs of healthcare organizations. It streamlines tracking patient diagnoses and prescriptions while managing payment and medical insurance information. It facilitates access to patient data, significantly improving patient care and satisfaction. 

ePrescribing Software 

ePrescribing software has revolutionized the prescription process, leaving the days of deciphering handwritten notes from doctors or pharmacists far behind. It ensures clarity in medication orders, eliminating prescription errors and issues with lost or forgotten prescriptions. 

Urgent Care Applications 

Urgent care applications provide instant health-related information, crucial in situations where patients cannot physically get to a healthcare facility. Features like chat or video allow doctors to assess the patient’s condition remotely, improving the quality of emergency care. 

The best healthcare software depends on specific needs. Medical providers commonly use EHRs for patient data, HMS for hospital management, MPMS for practice operations, ePrescribing software for medication orders, and urgent care applications for emergency responses.

What are the most common types of databases used in healthcare?

The most common types of databases used in healthcare include hierarchical, network, relational, document, NoSQL, object-oriented, graph, and ER model databases.  

Here is breakdown of each database type: 

  • Hierarchical databases: Known for their tree-like structure, these databases, such as Oracle Enterprise Database 11g, efficiently solve data management problems. They’re often used in complex data environments like enterprise resource planning (ERP) systems and support object-oriented programming. 
  • Network databases: These consist of components like a business server, electronic data interchange (EDI), and a web-based interface. They’re beneficial for real-time data access and retrieval, employing backup disks and transaction management protocols for enhanced data safety and integrity. 
  • Relational databases: Commonly used in healthcare, these databases store data in tables with defined relationships. They’re ideal for managing structured data like patient records and hospital administration tasks. 
  • Document databases: Suitable for storing a variety of documents, these databases are essential for large companies needing to manage extensive information. They offer easy search and retrieval capabilities for various document types. 
  • NoSQL databases: Known for their flexibility and fault tolerance, NoSQL databases can operate without a traditional server, making them cost-effective for managing enterprise data, especially in cloud-based environments. 
  • Object-oriented databases: Storing data as objects, these databases use relational or object-relational systems for consistency and conflict avoidance. They’re known for automatic data updating and flexibility in data types, making them suitable for a range of applications. 
  • Graph databases: Featuring interconnected nodes and edges, these databases are excellent for managing large, complex data sets. They’re commonly used in scientific research and business applications due to their efficiency in handling relationships and large data volumes. 
  • Entity-relationship (ER) model databases: Storing data in an object-oriented manner, ER model databases are used for complex business rules and customer data storage. They work well with object-oriented databases and web technologies. 

Healthcare databases typically contain data essential for patient care and healthcare management, including: 

  • Patient information: Basic demographics, contact information, family medical history, and insurance details. 
  • Medical records: Detailed patient medical histories, diagnoses, treatments, medication records, lab results, and imaging reports. 
  • Administrative data: Appointment schedules, billing information, and insurance claims. 
  • Clinical data: Data from clinical trials, research studies, and patient outcomes.

Why hire a medical software development company? 

You should hire a medical software development company to modernize your healthcare operations, increase efficiency, reduce costs, and improve patient care. 

The advantages of investing in a medical software development company are numerous. Some of them include: 

  • Access to healthcare experts’ team: Hiring a healthcare software company gives you access to experienced professionals in software development, healthcare, and digital marketing, ensuring a comprehensive and industry-compliant software solution. 
  • Custom healthcare solutions: Medical software companies create specialized tools like EMR systems and patient portals tailored to the specific needs of healthcare providers. These solutions improve patient care and engagement by providing personalized access to healthcare services. In fact, 78% of physicians reported that EHR use improved patient overall care
  • Improved operational efficiency: Healthcare software automates routine tasks and enables data analysis, leading to increased efficiency in healthcare operations. Automation reduces manual effort and errors, while data analysis helps informed decision-making. 
  • Increased patient involvement: Custom medical software offers user-friendly access to health records, appointment scheduling, and remote communication with healthcare providers. It also gathers patient feedback for service improvement. 
  • Improved sensitive data security: Tailored security measures in custom healthcare software protect sensitive patient data with features like advanced encryption, authentication, and regular updates to guard against breaches. Cybersecurity and data protection are the most important considerations for 28% of healthcare organizations
  • Scalability: Custom software is scalable, with a modular design and cloud-based options that allow for easy adaptation to changing healthcare demands and seamless integration with existing systems. 
  • Cost-effectiveness: By automating administrative tasks, healthcare software reduces labor costs and operational expenses, contributing to overall cost savings for healthcare organizations. 

Apriorit’s case study excellently highlights the benefits of healthcare software. The agency developed an AI-based system for a U.S. healthcare center specializing in infertility treatments, to efficiently track and measure ovarian follicles in ultrasound videos. This AI solution, using advanced algorithms, achieved 90% precision and 97% recall rate, drastically improving the diagnostic process by automating follicle detection and measurement.  

The system’s success saved significant time for healthcare professionals and improved the quality of patient care. The initial accuracy of the system was set at 70%, but through continuous development and training, it reached higher levels of precision and recall. Currently undergoing testing and FDA approval processes, this technological advancement represents a significant improvement in the efficiency and accuracy of infertility diagnoses.
