Why does the healthcare industry play such a significant role?


Every one of us use healthcare software

We use medical services practically over all of our lives - starting from buying medicines from the online pharmacy, through simple procedures at the dentist, to more serious surgeries. Custom medical software is an integral part of the healthcare industry.

Medical software pushes science forward

More and more dangerous diseases, and the desire to find a cure for illnesses accompanying mankind for a long time.Such motivation have always effectively accelerated scientific development which improved the quality and length of human life. The purpose of the healthcare industry is to make the world the better place to live for every and each of us.

Healthcare industry is one of the largest and most profitable ones

Before the medicine reaches our hands it has to go through strict verivications. Production, tests, certifications, but also the logistics itself requires a lot of work of many people, including programmers who create management systems. The costs of materials, facilities, medical software and people must be covered. That is why this industry is so big.

The critical importance of custom healthcare software development

Every level of the medical industry requires high quality products, and therefore attention to details from creators - after all, its services are meant to save lives. Therefore, it is not a surprise that various types of custom healthcare software are widely used in this industry. Thanks to that, the risk of human error is effectively minimized and human work is significantly simplified. This saves a lot of costs and time, while increasing quality and efficiency.

Meet the main beneficiaries of healthcare software

Custom medical software makes life easier and helps to improve the quality of many people’s lives. It is one of the factors that contributred to improvement in life expectancy and reduction of fatal diseses number. We proudly support making the world a better place, by developing healthcare software. Our work has a direct impact on the lives of major groups of people, such as:



Patients are probably the biggest group of healthcare software users. They need to use it to get their medical data, contact the staff or control medical devices for home use.

Doctors, surgeons, nurses


The world of medical software development would not exist without this group. They simply need dedicated software solutions to fulfil their roles better.

Clinics, treatment centers

Healthcare organizations such as clinics and treatment centers need software solutions to keep electronic health records and patient data.

Manufacturers of medical equipment


More and more operations and procedures are done by medical devices or with their assist. Healthcare professionals are still needed to operate them, however.

Professional athletes


Medical data contain pieces of important information for professional athletes. It can improve their results.

People who want to monitor their health

Dedicated health measurement systems are placed in the numerous devices. Including those ones for people who care about their shape.

Touchscreens make life easier for end users

In more and more industries - including the medical field - touchscreen devices are gaining popularity. This growing trend isn’t without a reason – a departure from the traditional mouse and keyboard use not only speeds up work, but also makes it easier - see why:



Medical software is the intermediary between the user and the advanced logic behind the application backend. It is important that the user has access to as much valuable information as possible. Touch screens, because of their size, but also their scrolling capabilities, can interact with him in a simple and user-friendly way.

Easiness of use

During surgery, the medical staff may not have the time or even the possibility to use the software with a mouse or keyboard. With the help of touch screens he can control the procedure with a single drag of a finger.

Medical software portability

Medical apps of everyday use can be easily installed on your smartphone and tablet. You can then use them to monitor your health, or control an external device, such as

One of our main areas of expertise is HMI software development. That also includes medical software development services for devices that require to have a touch screen.

High quality means high responsibility

Custom healthcare software development is a process that requires extreme accuracy, as well as the ability to anticipate all use cases. There is a long list of standards to meet. For that reason several important factors need to be considered when developing healthcare software:


Safety and reliability of healthcare software

Certain information, like for example the patient's blood pressure and pulse rate during surgery, may be essential for the doctor. It cannot happen that the medical application suddenly stops working - some of its elements must work independently from the rest of the application. In order to achieve that, crucial functionalities of the app should be separated from the less important ones, wherever it’s possible.

Superior performance

While most applications should be optimized, this is much more important in the case of medical software and even more in the case of medical device that runs on a resource-limited hardware. Human health or even life is at stake - it is unacceptable that surgeons' work is slowed down by application’s low performance. Thanks to the logic created in C++ and our team of experienced specialists we can achieve the highest possible application performance, while maintaining a user-friendly interface.

Application architecture and data security

Before the process of creating a medical application begins, the structure of its logic must be planned in detail, as well as data management schemes - both for patients and staff. We want the application to work as efficiently as possible, while preserving the operation of critical functions, and the patient wants to remain anonymous. For this purpose, it is worthwhile to use a consultation - check out our consultation services here.

Scalability and longevity of hardware

In case of digital health devices, software is not enough - we should also make sure, that the hardware on which it is running, allows the smoothest and most efficient work of the launched application. Such hardware should also work reliably, and often uninterruptedly for many years. It must be good enough to be able to run latest software updates.

Why Qt framework is a perfect choice for medical software development?

Qt framework is a stable and powerful toolkit that allows you to create efficient applications with beautiful UI. Qt is the technology of choice for most of our projects and a tool we excessively specialize in. It is a technology that is widely used in healthcare industry. Why is Qt a good choice for healthcare software development?

Outstanding performance
Qt has a core based on efficient and popular C++ language. Thanks to it, the performance and security of applications is significantly increased. Additionally, developers can connect other, external libraries based on C++. Optimizing especially performance demanding algorithms is one of the main skills of our software engineers.
Qt is a cross-platform framework. It means that using the same codebase you can generate ready to use applications for many, different devices: Windows, iOS, Android, Linux, or embedded systems. This way you save a significant amount of resources while speeding up the software development process - no more hiring several, independent teams of developers. Find out why keeping a low tech stack is important
Meets medical certification standards
Task your project to trusted publishers. Mentioned below Qt Safe Renderer module has been deemed suitable for life-sustaining and life-saving devices. TÜV NORD has confirmed that Qt Safe Renderer meets the requirements of the following standards: • IEC 62304:2015 • IEC 61508:2010-3 7.4.4 • ISO 9001:2015
Qt Safe Renderer
What in a situation where life-saving software stops working for some reasons? The surgeon must still have access to particular data during surgery. Qt includes a dedicated solution that comes in handy in these types of cases - Qt Safe Renderer, a certified module approved for use in life support and life-saving devices. This module works independently from the rest of the program, displaying critical information for the doctor when the main application stops working.
Quick and cheap development process
Qt Quick module, in which we have experience, is an innovative solution that allows to create the appearance of the application in a straightforward way. By using QML language, our developers are able to quickly and effortlessly adjust the look of the application to the changes introduced by the designers team. This language can be easily combined with the logic created in pure C++, resulting in a smooth, eye-catching design with a stable backend.
Ready-made modules to speed up medical software development
Does your application use 3D models, Bluetooth, NFC or maybe GPS localization? These are commonly used functionalities, but implementing them requires a lot of work. However, this is not the case if you use Qt - it contains numerous ready to use modules, that can be integrated with the existing code in a childishly easy way. Qt framework also provides various solutions, such as Qt Safe Renderer. This tool displays key information even if the main software stops working for some reason.
