About the Client
Client is the premier provider of pediatric services in the DC area, the only healthcare provider specializing in kids. It has a global reputation for pioneering new therapies and treatments, including heart, cancer, neurology, and general surgery innovations and is ranked seventh in NIH research funding for pediatric institutions.
As a sought after medical care institution for kids, the client’s patients came from across the United States. Once primary treatment was completed, the secondary care and monitoring could be done from the patient’s homes. However, the client wanted to have oversight in pro-active monitoring of vital signs and ensuring timely action is being taken in abnormal scenarios.
The Client wanted Silicus to develop a mobile application that could be installed on the smart phones of healthcare practitioners, to help them monitor and manage their patient’s health condition remotely.
