HEALTH CARE SOFTWARE DEVELOPMENT
In our over 25 years of experience delivering custom technical services, Up and Running has become a widely respected provider of health care software solutions, earning the trust of universities, NGOs, and nonprofits supported by the likes of Google and the Gates Foundation, and industry leaders such as Hearst / First Databank, Sanofi, Henry Schein, and FDLIC, among others. We are comfortable working with any stakeholder, including: health system executives, product managers, project managers, software developers, doctors, nurses, coders, other medical professionals, PhDs, entrepreneurs, early-stage to growth-stage startups, venture capitalists, and more.
We have had the opportunity to develop an extensive range of solutions for the health care industry, facilitating the work of health care professionals and the lives of their patients and customers. Our services are wide-ranging, and just some of the technical solutions we have provided include: patient medication management, enterprise health care Internet portals, vaccine monitoring, life management, and solutions that researchers use to solve some of the most important issues facing the human population at present. We have also developed financial solutions for payors / insurance companies and the revenue cycle as a whole.
Health Care Solutions:
- Electronic medical records software: Electronic medical records (EMRs) reduce overhead by both simplifying and improving data management. Other benefits include, but are not limited to, allowing health care professionals to track patient data over time, and monitoring patient performance on relevant metrics—vaccinations, blood pressure, screenings results, and more. EMRs can substantially improve patient care while saving time and work. We have been involved in EMR implementations and software creation since 2002.
- Internet of things health care: Internet of things (IoT) solutions enable the real-time management of health care services regardless of one’s location. With them, users can track and report data and manage inventory, allowing for better-informed decisions. For example, one area in which UAR has implemented an IoT solution is in vaccine transportation and distribution. As another example, we made a flexible IoT solution that could be used for any product made by a manufacturer who serves the health care market; its products include a blood analyzer, cold therapy devices, electrolysis controllers, and more.
- Mobile health care apps: Mobile apps make doctors’ work easier by improving information and time management and enabling more well-informed decisions. Some apps offer access to a wealth of information at one’s fingertips, from symptoms to drug interactions and more, and others quickly calculate various patient measurements. Most apps offer multiple services for more comprehensive use. We can deliver applications natively, via web applications, or using some hybrid approach.
- Medical billing software: Medical billing solutions greatly enhance health care management efficiency. Claims, reimbursements, patient insurance eligibility checks and payments, and financial reporting are all part of the service provision cycle. Billing software reduces both the hassle and the risk of error, saving considerable time and money. We have served insurance companies, benefits managers, revenue cycle service providers, and hospital systems.
- Complex drug management and interaction platforms: These platforms encompass most aspects of health care business: compiling and updating patient records, tracking hospital and home medication, processing and managing medical professionals’ orders for medications, and maintaining a consistent, seamless interaction with wider hospital IT networks. Our work has passed DEA and FDA audits, and is approved to manage Schedule II medications.
- Hospital management software: In hospital or clinic management, these solutions help perfect the whole cycle of health care service provision, including recordkeeping, data collection and analysis, policy development, and improved finance management.
- Software for medical devices: The number and variety of medical devices that require software to function is growing and will only continue to grow in the future as the benefits—accuracy, reliability, and a much lower margin of error—spread to more devices. Software itself can also be used as a standalone medical device. One example is software as a medical device (SaMD), referring to apps that do not require a specific medical device to take part in diagnostic and therapeutic processes. If desired, our work can be run on any device, securely. We have developed solutions for a broad spectrum, from simple devices to commonly used high-end smartphones.
- CRM for health care: Customer relationship management (CRM) is of the utmost importance in health care. These solutions offer quick access to patient data and other information to improve diagnosis and treatment and increase patient satisfaction. CRM also helps to significantly cut costs while improving standards of care. Given our ability to integrate, we can ensure this data flows consistently across the entire organization, and we can help with data governance as well to contribute to high-value and actionable data that’s trusted.
- E-prescribing software: E-prescribing solutions allow health care providers to directly send prescriptions to pharmacies, saving time for both providers and patients. By eliminating handwriting, such software heightens accuracy and patient safety. Additionally, e-prescribing significantly shortens the time period from receiving a prescription to starting treatment.
- Medical appointment scheduling: Scheduling a medical appointment is hassle-free with a software solution. Scheduling applications help manage the appointments workload more efficiently by using automatic notifications and reminders. For patients, these solutions are just as beneficial, saving patients time and helping them avoid missing an appointment, which ultimately improves the quality of care.
- SaaS solutions for health care: Software-as-a-service (SaaS) solutions enable various health care and related services to serve a wider network of clients regardless of location, allowing for greater collaboration and convenience. UAR has helped break new ground with a SaaS solution that helps funeral directors and the clients they serve—survivors of the deceased, and those planning their own arrangements—navigate the difficult end-of-life management process.
- Animal health solutions: While most of the work described here was performed for health care providers catering to people, we have also served multiple clients in the veterinary and animal health space, including a SaaS solution. Given that, we can handle any specific needs you may have for the care of our non-human friends and family members.
- Custom medical software solutions: What ties all of Up and Running’s work together is that our solutions are custom-built to meet specific needs and priorities. Given that the health care industry is so multi-faceted, these solutions can vary greatly, which is why UAR’s solutions offering is so extensive. Contact us to learn more.
