When it comes to software, apps, and web development, custom is the way to go. In the healthcare industry, it is important that systems are secure, efficient, and aim to help give patients the best care possible. A custom software solution gives doctors’ offices, hospitals, and other medical care facilities the ability to perform processes that are specific to their needs. At Ayoka Systems, we have worked on many projects in the healthcare industry. Read on to learn about some of the services we can provide to help your processes become more customized and more efficient.

Custom Software Development

Did you know that it is estimated to cost twice as much to store paper medical records versus storing them electronically? Many medical providers are still stuck in the past and using paper records. At Ayoka Systems, we develop software for medical providers so that patient medical records can be stored electronically. In addition, we provide software to help in the following areas:

  • Practice management
  • Billing
  • Payroll
  • Human resources automation

When it comes to the healthcare industry, privacy and security are vital since records contain personal health information. At Ayoka, we are very familiar with HIPAA standards and how they relate to custom software.

Medical App Development

App-based technology is helpful for both medical providers and patients. The apps can be web- or mobile-based, depending on your needs. One current development that many medical providers are taking advantage of is telemedicine. During the global pandemic, many patients are hesitant to go see their doctors as they normally would for fear of contracting the virus. Telemedicine apps allow doctors and patients to meet virtually in a secure way. Telemedicine is here to stay! Many providers are interested in keeping telemedicine options even when the pandemic is over.

Another way apps can be used in the medical office is to make clinical decisions. Custom apps can help doctors make care decisions based on symptoms. Apps can also be used to collect and analyze many different types of data. In addition, apps can be very useful for patients. Education and self-care apps help patients learn about what they can do at home to stay healthy. This app could be an exercise tracker, or one that gives daily health tips on topics like sleep and nutrition. Your patients will appreciate having access to these resources from their own devices at home. Apps are also helpful when it comes to appointment scheduling. At the end of the appointment, providers quickly schedule a follow-up through the app, reducing the work that the receptionists will need to do. At Ayoka Systems, we want to hear how an app could help your practice. Share with us your ideas and we will help them become a reality.

Accountable Care Solutions

When it comes to medical care, the fee-for-service model does not encourage providers to reduce overall spending. On the other hand, if providers are penalized for recommending costly services to patients, then the healthcare of patients could suffer. The goal of Accountable Care Solutions (ACOs) is to help patients get the best health outcome per dollar spent. The ACO software helps providers reduce quality errors, improves their guidance for differential diagnoses, and creates an overall operational improvement. Here are some things ACO software can do:

  • Manage prescriptions and administration of medications more effectively
  • Discourage providers from giving tests that will have no effect on treatment regardless of findings
  • More streamlined workflow
  • Better utilizes resources

Cognitive Health Custom Software Development

Cognitive testing is very important in the senior population. It helps providers understand if a patient has a disease like Alzheimer’s, dementia, or other forms of memory loss. There is a lack of standardized control when it comes to cognitive testing. At Ayoka, we create software and apps that help providers deliver tests and record results. The process is quick, easy, standardized, and enables providers to easily analyze data. Perhaps the best benefit of all is that it can help with early detection of memory issues in patients.

Healthcare Web Development

In the healthcare industry, it is essential to take a step beyond simply having electronic patient records at the office. Having a strong web-based system gives providers the opportunity to provide real-time communication, patient online resources, insurance/billing management, patient surveys, health apps, healthcare staff training modules, and more! At Ayoka Systems, we make sure that when it comes to healthcare web development, our solutions are flexible and curated to your needs. As with other aspects of your practice, we also ensure that any of your web-based programs are HIPAA-compliant.

Electronic Medical Claims

When medical providers file electronic claims, they must be in compliance with Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) 837 Standard. This ensures that medical providers are staying compliant with HIPAA rules and regulations. At Ayoka Systems, we understand how this system must comply with HIPAA. We also know that HIPAA standards change over time, so the software must be adaptable. We develop a smart client solution for EDI processing. The system is beneficial for medical providers because it is extremely customizable. The systems also have offline capability, so that it will still work even if the network connection is down. The web-based electronic medical records can be supported across various platforms and have data encryption to ensure privacy.

As a medical provider, it is time to consider custom software. At Ayoka Systems, we have a lot of experience customizing software for the healthcare industry. We can help your practice implement things like apps, web-based programs, accountable care solutions, cognitive testing software, and more. Our goal is to make providers more efficient and effective, because in the long run this will keep patients happier and healthier.
