Claricode's Customizable Process for Healthcare Software Development

Development Process - customized for you

Just as there are no one size fits all suits, there is no one process that works perfectly for all clients. We work with you to tailor the process to your individual needs or work within your existing process.

No matter what process you choose, we make sure that you see progress early and often.

Too little process can let a project drift. Too much process and a project will be much more expensive and time-consuming. We customize the “weight” and style of our process based on the size of the project, your team’s needs, and the specific project goals.

Process Option 1: Our traditional development process:

Our traditional development process is broken into a number of different steps:

Requirements Gathering

We begin by gathering requirements via either a series of telephone conversations or web meetings where we discuss the overall goal of the project, its workflow and any specific business needs you may have.

Wireframes

After our initial conversations are complete, we usually recommend that we work with you to design wireframes which will show the overall layout of the application. Wireframes are similar in concept to the blueprints for a house. You will be able to see a basic outline of the screens in your application and get a sense of the look and feel of the final product.

This is where we collaborate with you to make sure that your product does what you want it to do and is easy to use.

We organize the application features into major components and create wireframes to help layout the workflow processes of the application taking into account the different users and use case scenarios to ensure ultimate usability and design themes.

The wireframe process also allows us to help you ensure that you are getting exactly what you envisioned as the project progresses and that the system is easy to use. During this phase we can move items around on the screen or change a layout without affecting the entire system.

Development

In this phase of the project, we focus on creating the product—from the database behind the scenes to the graphical interface that you’ll use to interact with your software. After the framework of the system has been built, you may be able to log in to the site and see progress as it is being built to make sure it is what you are expecting. We perform Quality Assurance Testing while each feature is built.

Final Quality Assurance

After all development iterations have been completed, we perform a Final Quality Assurance of the entire application to catch any additional bugs that have arisen in the process.

Deployment

During deployment we place the new piece of software on your server (or in the cloud). We make sure everything is working as expected and your software is now ready to use.

Support and Enhancements

We value the long-term relationships we establish with each of our clients and are happy to support you after the software has been deployed on a time and materials basis. Many of our clients collaborate with us to expand their software’s capabilities after their software has a successful launch and adoption rate.

Process Option 2: Our agile development process:

The diagram below shows the lifecycle of each agile custom software solution we develop.

Agile Overview

Envisioning

We begin by gathering the requirements we need to begin the project by Envisioning the entire application, including the ultimate goal of the application, main workflow, and functional specifications.

Designing

We then move onto Designing the application from both an information architecture standpoint, followed by a graphical design mock-up. We will organize the application features into major components and create wireframes to help layout the workflow processes of the application taking into account the different users and use case scenarios to ensure ultimate usability and design themes.

Developing

Development is carried out following our agile methodologies. Pieces of the system are designed, developed, stabilized and released in frequent iterations (or “sprints”) to allow clients to begin to see complete, functional pieces of the system early and often.

Final Quality Assurance

After all development iterations have been completed, we perform a Final Quality Assurance of the entire application to catch any additional bugs that have arisen in the process.

Final Deployment

Following the completion of the Final QA & Stabilization, we will perform the Final Deployment of the complete solution, along with all source code and any documentation compiled during the project.
