In healthcare, time is of the essence for physicians, and every hour counts. However, if a hospital relies on multiple disconnected IT systems, productivity suffers and patient care is compromised. The resulting inefficiency drains resources and deprives patients of much-needed attention from their healthcare provider. Explore how we bridged these gaps and provided better care for all.


At the hospital we worked with, doctors dedicated significant time to analyzing each patient’s case in order to determine the best course of action for their treatment. This approach led to improved diagnoses and more effective treatments overall. However, the task was burdened with a considerable amount of paperwork and took up to 10 full-time equivalents annually to complete.

In addition, our client faced significant expenses due to the costly licenses required for each new user on their complex and disorganized data-generating applications.

Physicians experienced challenges producing reports, and the potential gains from medical data on symptoms, patient characteristics, treatment, and recovery rates remained unexplored.

We were tasked to optimize and simplify their operations.

Scope & Highlights

A single point of truth for multiple applications

Intuitive presentation layer

Our Approach

The best course of action was to create a single point of truth for the multiple applications the client was using. The challenge here was that the applications had different data models, therefore mapping them to one schema was essential.

  • A team of software engineers implemented a backend application in Node.js to transform GraphQL queries. GraphQL connected the back- and front end together. To make the whole solution easy to use.
  • The UX designer created an intuitive presentation layer, which was later developed in Angular.

Creating charts that convey all the information necessary for users was of utmost importance to us. We made sure that the data is presented in a modern, insightful way to make working with it easy and efficiently.


Our solution saves hours of physician work time. Instead of analysing data and looking for patterns, roughly ten specialists can instead devote themselves entirely to working with patients. All those valuable analyses are performed by our application that presents it in comprehensive, easy-to-understand charts and diagrams.

The system generated data that greatly speed up giving diagnoses and suggesting treatment methods. The example report looked like this: for patients between 40 and 50 years old with symptoms like stomach ache and nausea, in 60% of cases, the cause was peritonitis. Thanks to the structured data, the diagnosis time has been significantly reduced.

We eliminated the need to buy extra licenses for new users, which allowed the client to make significant savings without reducing the quality of the assistance provided.
