Back in the year 2012, Abto Software was approached by a US-based healthcare solution provider. Our engineers successfully delivered a suite of reliable digital tools and are now still actively involved in the product’s support and development.
The project was aimed at modernization and smooth cloud migration of the client’s complex internal system. The system, written in Visual FoxPro, was designed for medical practice management.
Abto Software fruitfully assisted the company by sharing expert proficiency. We provided 15 experienced software developers to complement the client’s internal team in their US office.
Our patient care system, EHR solution, is designed to streamline operational processes in clinics and hospitals. The system simplifies the overall workflow, processing claims, managing inventory, and more.

The project’s main objective was to develop an advanced EMR software for clinics and pharmacies. A fast, seamlessly running EMR solution would provide overwhelmed clinicians and pharmacists with the needed tools to optimize internal processes.
Another goal was to integrate the software with official medical databases. These databases include information on drugs, various diseases, and diagnoses. Another task we covered was the smooth integration with several insurance companies. The purpose was to make medical insurance coverage verification as easy as possible.
How the solution works
The developed EMR software is designed to provide both clinicians and patients with important medical data. Our solution helps overwhelmed medical workers save time and provide high-quality service. The information, which can be accessed through the electronic health record solution, includes information about appointments, medical history, diagnoses, allergies, and other relevant data. Such a modern system simplifies communication and brings patient care to a new level.
The system also provides advanced reporting based on specific inquiries. This feature is of particular importance in terms of delivered business value.
Skilled professionals, provided by Abto Software, also paid great attention to accessibility and convenience. Medical workers and patients can choose between using the user-friendly web portal or the mobile platform for iOS.
The solution allows personnel to report any issues, which might possibly emerge. This means, the introduced software developers are able to fix any shortcomings as soon as they are discovered.
The features of the eHealth solution delivered include:
- User-friendly and easy-to-navigate interface
- User profiles with detailed patient information (medical history, diagnoses, allergies, treatment plan, radiology images, lab and test results, treatment reimbursement, health insurance, and more)
- Appointment management
- Internal chats for communication between clinicians
- Clinical decision assessment support by access to reliable digital tools
- Inventory management
- Drug approval
- Medical insurance coverage verification
- Integrated claim data access
- Finance regulation
- In-depth analytics
- Advanced reporting based on real-time data
- Streamlined and completely automated ETL workflow
- Secure, SAML-based SSO integration of external, third-party systems
The delivered eHealth solution complies with the international HIPAA and HITECH standards. This means it is highly interoperable.
Our team covered the following tasks:
- Researched the EMR / EHR market
- Designed and implemented an electronic medical record system
- Helped the client company to license the product to comply with international medical standards
- Launched the EMR system
Main challenges our engineers faced during the project include the following matters:
1. Smooth integration of different data sources
The business collects important data through multiple digital applications. Each application has its own algorithms for uploading and updating collected data.
2. Advanced support of hierarchical role access
A reliable security system must be both resilient and flexible. Security issues can lead to leakage, which can have serious business consequences.
3. The need for flexibility to meet various customer and end-user needs
When talking about technology, one of the main healthcare tendencies in the world is digital transformation. Expanding access to affordable patient care is a key challenge in the developing markets of Asia, Africa, and Central and Eastern Europe. Based on global trends, it can be assumed that growing healthcare organizations will increasingly invest in digital transformation. Already introduced technical specialists must be very flexible in order to adapt to the client’s needs.
4. HIPAA and HITECH compliance
HIPAA and HITECH compliance is an important matter in assessing healthcare solutions in the eHealth industry. The violation of these might lead to fines and loss of reputation.
