How to Design and Develop the Right Healthcare Software Solution 

Developing successful healthcare software differs from traditional enterprise software. It demands a deep understanding of not just the technology itself, but regulatory and interoperability requirements, and most importantly the needs of the user. Our guide to user-centered design and development encapsulates the three critical factors (user, technology, regulatory requirements) on the path to engaging Digital Health Software.
