Project Background

The customer turned to EffectiveSoft with the idea to develop an application for hospitals automatic calculation of medication costs and reimbursement based on healthcare coding system for indications, diagnosis, medical treatment, drugs, etc. As the customer had no documented requirements and was available for communication only via email and IMs, it was decided to apply Agile methodology to the project. The customer provided us with the coding reference and his vision of what should be done. The development of the application started from scratch and included frequent incremental releases, timely response to required changes, and QA support. Finally, we managed to satisfy customer’s objectives by applying best industry practices and technology expertise.

As for technical characteristics of the system:
