Pathfinder is a medical software development company. We use lean innovation, user experience design, and agile software development to launch the right products quickly. Our experience with FDA and HIPAA regulations can help get your product to market without delay.
Pathfinder helps healthcare companies design and develop medical software and mobile apps that make a difference in the lives of clinicians, caregivers and patients.
Mobile Healthcare Design and Development
Mobility is the key to engaging end users. Mobile devices are intimate and personal. Our mobile healthcare app development process creates mobile experiences that spur adoption, engagement and bring a smile to the face of even the most harried cardiologist.
Medical Device Software and Wireless Sensors
We are experts at software development for medical devices, and at integrating mobile solutions with next generation wireless enabled devices and sensors.
Big Data in Healthcare
Mobility frees up information otherwise stuck in disparate applications or data warehouses. Wireless devices and sensors make large amounts of new data available. We can help you create value from this data by collecting, processing and integrating it to generate actionable insights that dramatically improve clinical and quality outcomes.
HIPPA & FDA Software Development (Class II, III, 510(k))
We’ll provide HIPAA and FDA software guidance from inception. Our process helps accelerate product launches while managing the complexities of regulatory requirements.
FDA Agile Development
Mobile convergence is accelerating the pace of innovation and competition. Our lean/agile process helps you run rings around the competition. We use rapid, iterative project cycles, which allow you to test earlier, ensuring you bring the right product to market faster.
Examples of Medical Software We’ve Built
Wearable Sensor Based Remote Patient Monitoring SystemVitaLink, a project we recently worked on with our client VGBio, illustrates the potential power of combining body area sensor networks with mobile apps, cloud computing and machine learning based predictive analytics.
Driving Meaningful Use with iPhone EMR ApplicationsWe designed and developed iPhone and iPad applications for a specialty EMR vendor that helped our client improve clinical decision making at the point of care and drive adoption and meaningful use of their platform.
iPad Patient Portal App for EMR SystemPathfinder worked with our customer, a specialized EMR vendor, to develop a feature-rich patient check-in system that takes full advantage of the iPad’s user friendly touch screen and efficient form factor. The integrated patient portal allows for patient pre-registrations and streamlined patient/office interactions
Mobile Solution to Improve Medical WorkflowWe designed a mobile solution to streamline and reduce errors in the apheresis (blood donation) process that was so intuitive that it caused our client to remark that “We laugh about it. We don’t even have to demo it. They just take it out of your hand and start using it.”
Clinical Decision Support Using Evidence-Based MedicineWe re-architected and developed clinical decision support system that aggregates and analyzes clinical information against highly respected sources of evidence-based medicine to identify gaps in care, medical errors and quality issues so that it could scale (to 20 million lives covered and counting) and helping our client to a $450 million exit (11x revenue.)
Tablet Based Health Counseling Interview AppThis tablet based touch application enables Health Educators to gather data and provide enhanced feedback during the motivational interview process without losing rapport with the patient.
Mobile Medical CME iPhone AppPerformance on Demand™ (POD) is a customized performance improvement CME tool exclusively offered by Vindico Medical Education. Pathfinder worked with Vindico Medical Education to develop iPhone, iPad and web versions of the application. POD enables physicians to improve their professional practice and patient care outcomes while earning earning AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™.
