A System For Federal Dental-Referrals
Dedicated team behind the project
It is the enterprise project for managing thousands of NHS patient referrals from the United Kingdom. The Dental Referrals knew how important the EHR was to the development of modern medicine. Expanding their clinics’ network and finding an efficient manner of dealing with digital health commissioning was impossible while relying on the outdated version of the app.
Dental Referrals faced challenges related to the security and performance of their app that prevented the company from efficiently managing thousands of daily patient referrals. Due to the low app performance, our client had huge maintenance bills. The rush development and monolithic architecture built on the previous Ruby and Ruby on Rails versions have had us splitting a monolithic app into microservices while improving its security and performance features at the same time.
Approach / what was done
We overhauled the outdated system, enhanced its security, and improved the overall performance. The app is being turned into a full-scale platform, reliable for preserving and managing the patients’ sensitive data. Also, the AWS migration process led to improved app efficiency.
- Put the platform’s tech debt under progressive maintenance
- Developed the app’s successful third-party testing routine
- Increased the percentage of unit testing from 25% to 95%
