Project Stages and Flow

The project stages and flow of healthcare development typically involve several key steps to ensure the successful creation and deployment of software solutions tailored to the healthcare industry’s needs. These stages may include:

Our typical project flow includes the following stages.


Discovery and Planning:

This initial phase involves gathering requirements, defining project goals, and conducting research to understand the healthcare domain and user needs thoroughly.


Design and Prototyping:

In this stage, the design team creates wireframes, mockups, and prototypes to visualize the user interface and user experience (UI/UX) design of the healthcare software.



The development team starts coding the software based on the approved designs and requirements. They follow industry best practices and standards to ensure the software’s quality, security, and scalability.


Testing and Quality Assurance:

Once the development is complete, the software undergoes rigorous testing to identify and fix any bugs or issues. This includes functional testing, usability testing, performance testing, and security testing.


Deployment and Launch:

After successful testing, the healthcare software is deployed to the production environment. This involves setting up servers, configuring databases, and ensuring the software is ready for use by medical professionals and patients.


Post-Launch Support and Maintenance:

Even after the software is launched, ongoing support and maintenance are crucial to address any issues, implement updates, and add new features based on user feedback and evolving healthcare requirements.

Development formats and billing

In healthcare development, various development formats and billing models are utilized to meet the diverse needs of clients and stakeholders. These formats and billing models include:

Agile Development:

Agile methodologies, such as Scrum or Kanban, are commonly employed in healthcare development to facilitate iterative and flexible project management. This approach allows for continuous collaboration, adaptation to changing requirements, and faster delivery of high-quality software solutions.

Waterfall Development:

In some cases, especially for large-scale healthcare projects with well-defined requirements, the waterfall development model may be used. This sequential approach involves distinct phases, such as requirements gathering, design, development, testing, and deployment, with each phase building upon the previous one.

Hybrid Development:

Hybrid development combines elements of both Agile and Waterfall methodologies to suit the specific needs of the project. It may involve using Agile principles for certain aspects of the project, such as user interface design or feature development, while following a more traditional approach for other components.

Time and Materials Billing:

This billing model involves charging clients based on the time and resources spent on the project. Clients are billed for the actual hours worked by developers, along with any materials or expenses incurred during the development process.

Fixed Price Billing:

In contrast, the fixed price billing model sets a predetermined price for the entire project scope. Clients pay a fixed amount for the completion of the project, regardless of the actual time or resources expended. This model provides cost certainty for clients but requires careful project scope definition and management.

How do I make sure my healthcare software solution is HIPAA-compliant?

To ensure that your custom software is HIPAA-compliant, you need to perform a risk analysis and implement technical and administrative safeguards that meet the requirements of the HIPAA regulations. You may also consider hiring a HIPAA compliance consultant or auditor to perform a thorough review of your medical software.

The key HIPAA regulations for healthcare software solutions include the Privacy Rule, the Security Rule, and the Breach Notification Rule. The Privacy Rule sets standards for the use and disclosure of individuals’ health information, while the Security Rule establishes security standards for protecting electronic health records. The Breach Notification Rule requires organizations to notify individuals if their protected health information has been breached. These strict rules are a critical part of custom medical software development. When choosing a healthcare software developer, you should find a team that is educated on such compliance issues; Diffco’s team is well-versed and here to help throughout the healthcare application development process.

How long does it take to build an mHealth app?

The time it takes to build an mHealth app varies and depends on several factors, such as the complexity and the available resources. On average, it takes 4 to 6 months to develop a basic mHealth app with limited features. However, a more complex healthcare apps with additional features and functionality can take up to a year or more to develop. It’s important to note that the custom software development process is not just about building the app itself, but also includes planning, designing, software testing, and deployment.

Does Digital Software Labs provide support after delivering an app?

After delivering an app, the Diffco team can support and maintain the app on an ongoing basis, ensuring quality and adding new functionality as desired.

What if I only need a few dedicated developers - not a whole team with a project manager?

Diffco has a flexible approach to delivering what you need, when you need it. We can provide select talent to augment your internal resources,as well as an end-to-end software development team.

If we have our own design already? Can you just help us go live?

Yes. If you already have a design that you would like us to work with, we can use it as a basis to develop a finished product that meets your specifications. In case your design requires additional elements or improvements, our team will conduct a review.
