HipLink wanted to reduce its software development costs, so it could focus its resources more on sales and marketing, product strategy and onsite customer support. With an established customer base of hundreds of clients, the company was looking for an offshore development partner it could rely on to deliver new versions of its core products and customized solutions for its customers.
HipLink chose Folio3 as its development partner due to Folio3’s experience in developing digital health solutions, expertise in health enterprise systems and reputation for delivering high quality healthcare solutions.
After analyzing the requirements Folio3 assigned a dedicated development team to HipLink comprising 20 full time resources. This team worked on an aggressive timescale to develop two key systems for HipLink, which together are the driving force behind HipLink’s entire solution suite. These two systems include:
In addition to this, Folio3 has also worked extensively in delivering healthcare integrations for the alert management platform. These integrations have mainly been carried out with EMR/EHR systems such as Epic with HL7. Some of these projects include:
The Folio3 team initially used the traditional waterfall model for development (with detailed specification documents for both the technical and functional design) and Microsoft Project as the project management tool. After the first year however the team switched to Agile Development as the development methodology and now uses Target Process as the project management tool.
