We have been working with HealthPort since 2001. When they came to us, HealthPort needed a solution to make their clinic-oriented software accessible to patients directly via the Internet. This is undoubtedly the most complex, sophisticated web application in its class.
With data coming from the doctors office, special body scans using Healthport's ElectroLipoGraph (ELG), questionnaires and ongoing patient input, the web application is able to produce extremely specific patient reports on health risks, meal plans, recommended activity plans, as well as allow the doctor to remotely supervise patient's progress in a home-based managed care environment.
Over the years, we have helped HealthPort with scaling the application for consumer markets through companies such as Herbalife and BodyWise. Our management team has jumped in and helped secure manufacturing for a new generation of ELG equipment and continued to create new applications such as the new Personal Health Center found at PHC1000.com
Programming and Design
HealthPort had been developing their Windows software for almost 20 years. Their source code was available in a couple of languages, which helped the team avoid errors of earlier versions. Translating the program to a web-based environment required the development of a number of proprietary functions to handle going from a single user, desktop program to an open ended number of simultaneous web users.
Conquent took the proven calculations and systems HealthPort developed and translated the program into a scalable, enterprise level web application. In addition to the medical calculations, Conquent completely redeveloped the way the data was stored and managed for the HealthPort project.
Making it possible for non-computer savvy medical staff to maintain the accuracy of the system allows HealthPort to retain its FDA approval and secure its patents for this state of the art revision of a truly unique medical product.
A programmer can only take the interface so far, a graphic designer can only make the images do so much. In the case of the CyberCare Plan, the involvement of our Web team was critical to knit the two halves together.
So much of the site is driven from complex, biometric calculations which need to be presented in a way that anyone can understand. With a combination of dynamic graphs and charts, along with good-old-fashioned HTML, the team made the pages look right by welding together raw data and pure design.
