Common questions from healthcare industry clients

1. Should I build or buy?

In the healthcare space, much of our work involves integration - certainly with EMR systems, but also with other third party platform tools. Many of our clients use platforms to serve their more standard workflows, but for their own unique ways of serving patients, we tend to build custom software to support their unique processes.

2. How should I be preparing for app store guidelines?

Apps that are distributed must be published on the appropriate app stores, whether this app is intended for internal use or patient-facing use. Thinking through your distribution and revenue models will impact which type of app store account you need and which guidelines you will be subject to.

3. How should I think about PII and PHI and app architecture?

Managing PII is different than managing PHI, especially when it comes to how we are setting up the app architecture.  Meeting regulatory requirements for data privacy, especially when PHI is involved, has impact on how we design the initial app architecture and the associated costs.  Since architecture design is an early decision, it's critical to get this right before app development begins.

4. How do I plan for documentation for compliance like ISO 13485?

While AppIt doesn't consult on submissions or compliance audits for medical devices, we do work with consulting organizations that do this work. AppIt provides proper documentation, from testing to change management that helps our consulting partners streamline their submissions.  As our clients plan ahead for streamlined audits or submissions, it's important to review the quality and detail of technical requirements, determine the level of detail in test plans, and ensure that designs are in alignment with technical requirements.  It's helpful in the planning stage to ensure a potential vendor has clear, concise answers to how they manage the various stages of the software development lifecycle.
