HIPAA-/GDPR-complia­nt medical software development services

Our medical software development services help medical startups, hospitals, and insurance companies dramatically increase the treatment-process quality.
We cover all features and elements currently available in medical app development: wearables, smartphones, iPads/tablets, and large, custom-made, sophisticated systems.

  • Medical app development for wearable devices

    A robust monitoring system in a wearable device, smart watch, or fitness tracker. An app to track and analyze health data. The app collects, analyzes, and transmits vital factors from users to medical systems for further analysis or directly to doctors.

    • Vital parameters trackers
    • Fitness apps
    • Movement trackers
  • Medical app development for smartphones and tablets

    A smartphone or a tablet app transforms a “mini-computer” into a fully functional medical device. Patients can get in touch easily with the required professionals. All parties have access to essential information.

    • Telemedicine apps
    • Mental health apps
    • Insurance management apps
  • Custom medical software development

    Large, integrated software for sophisticated analysis available from any device. Meets the need for constant patient monitoring, remote treatment, and alerts. Decreases treatment costs through workflow optimization, e.g., generates/corrects treatment plans, analyzes patient data, implements alert systems for nurses and doctors.

    • Health record management
    • Reference apps
    • Drug prescription management

Featured Case Studies

IT Craft has a proven track record of being a dependable medical software development company with several medical projects in its portfolio. Here are three.

Web platform
DRG Claims Management

DRG provides an auditing system for insurance companies. This medical software has been designed to streamline business processes when negotiating treatment costs. DRG claim management software is designed with a special algorithm for verifying codes in clinical documentation and identifying errors and inaccuracies. Once an error has been identified, users can start negotiations to collect refunds on overpayments.

Web platform

Arctrieval is a secure management system for medical correspondence. It replaces excessive, often burdensome paperwork with HIPAA-compliant medical software.
The Web app enables its users to release, exchange, and maintain medical records, thus saving time and securely retrieving information from anywhere. The app has enhanced data exchange protocols to exclude unauthorized access and an extended tracking log system to monitor suspicious activities.
Arctrieval architecture makes it possible to easily manage large volumes of data and scale the app when needed.

Frequently asked questions from our clients

  • 1 What is medical software development?

    Medical software development is a process of building and launching a special app that:

    • is an accessory to a regulated medical device
    • transforms a mobile platform into a regulated medical device
    • contains algorithms for analysis and interpretation of data retrieved from a medical device
  • 2 What are examples of medical software?

    Custom medical solutions vary greatly. For example:

    CareAware Connect – supports and maintains teamwork. Patient information is available from one central device for clinic staff.

    mClinic – helps manage appointments. Provides tools for scheduling, prescription management, payments, etc.

    IsabelPro – facilitates matching symptoms and test results to diseases.

    Medisafe – a ‘virtual’ pillbox alerting users each time they must take medicine.

    Aetna Health app – lets users manage their healthcare plans on the go, find doctors, compare costs, etc.

    Do you want an app like one of the above? Contact us.

  • 3 What software is used in hospitals?

    Hospitals benefit from multiple software. The most common types of custom medical solutions include:

    • Appointment management software
    • Health records and patient data management software
    • Telehealth apps
    • AI-based analytical tools
    • IoT devices for remote monitoring
    • Data administration and management systems
    • AR/VR apps for learning and education
  • 4 What is medical software engineering?

    Medical software engineering develops and launches medical apps for user groups like patients, doctors, clinics administrators, and insurance companies. It includes various types of software for remote patient monitoring, remote consultation, secure release and exchange of sensitive information, and more.

    Medical software engineering is challenging in terms of security. Another challenge is integration with specific (and often legacy) systems used in hospitals.

  • 5 Do you sign an NDA for healthcare projects?

    Yes. We can sign an agreement prior to negotiation stage to ensure your idea of a medical app remains secret.

  • 6 How secure is IT Craft’s network?

    We are completely aware that security is crucial for medical software development. Our system administrators apply best practices to protect it from unauthorized access and continuously monitor its state. Only assigned developers have access to a project through protected permission.

  • 7 Do you introduce any additional security measures in healthcare development?

    We apply HIPAA and GDPR rules to our medical software development processes. If your company has already implemented best practices for your healthcare projects, we also incorporate them. The same restrictions and policies you use internally extend to your dedicated IT Craft team.

  • 8 What technologies do you use?

    IT Craft has teams with different focuses available for you. You can choose based on scope of work and desired platform. Here is a short list:

    • .NET
    • Kotlin
    • Node.js
    • JavaScript
    • Swift
    • LAMP
    • Docker
    • Amazon Web Services

    If you do not see your target platform on the list, please contact us to find out if we can help you.

  • 9 Can you help me with my digital healthcare project?

    Yes. To get an estimate for your digital project, our business analyst studies your requirements then consults the relevant development team regarding scope of work. A timeline, the required team size, and possible technological stack (if none provided) are determined.

  • 10 Will you work with the codebase I already have for a medical app?

    It depends. Before we start, we conduct a code review. When the code quality is high, we are happy to proceed with it. However, if the code doesn’t meet our exact standards to deliver a high-quality product, we advise starting over. With medical software development, it is mandatory to avoid critical bugs, ensure software consistency, and guarantee data security to meet HIPAA and GDPR compliance.

  • 11 How do you communicate with your clients?

    We have daily or weekly Zoom/Skype calls between the client and PM/lead developers. Frequency depends on the scope, timeline, complexity, and client preference.

    We use different management software (Jira, Redmine, Asana) to track project progress and time expenditure. We use Slack for internal messaging. If there is any software you prefer to use in your healthcare project, we can apply it to our workflow.
