As healthcare costs skyrocket for both providers and payers, how can both parties leverage technological efficiencies to better control expenditures?
In partnership with Omaha Systems and HiSpirit LLC, Digital Solutions was asked to develop a web-based application that acted as a caregiver management, data collection and healthcare reporting tool designed to provide the right care and supporting data as needed to improve quality and efficiency of care, prove effectiveness of care, and ultimately reduce healthcare costs to drive savings for providers and payers.
Defining requirements and discovering new functionalities
Digital Solutions took the time to deep dive into requirements for this emerging technology. As this would be the first application of its kind, our team understood how meticulous we needed to be in the process of discovery.
