Technology has brought great changes to the healthcare and wellbeing industry and opened doors for great innovations and opportunities. Commonly in eHealth systems and applications, big data sets have to be stored, shared and protected with perfect security. Everything has to be done following the tight regulations of the industry. The patient safety can never be compromised and the systems have to run 24/7 around the globe.
Health tech projects are often a combination of software development, data science, AI and top-notch information security. There are lots of demanding integrations when old systems have to be replaced as things move forward. The often required communication and collaboration with the public sector take time, patience and flexibility. Knowledge and understanding of the changes and challenges in the eHealth industry are mandatory for anyone working with health technology.
We are happy to be a part of the health sector’s tech revolution creating smart processes, user-friendly systems and robust cloud infrastructures. Montel has years of experience working with health and wellbeing tech startups and growth companies. We have worked with ailment identification and patient direction solution, food journal and nutrition network app, sleep and activity tracker and mobile service that captures patient-reported outcomes. Working closely with various health tech companies has built us great know-how on how to avoid common mistakes and efficiently bypass the usual challenges.

We have supported Klinik’s technology team with Montel know-how since 2016. Earlier on, we lead Klinik’s platform transformation from legacy PHP to a modern Django Rest Framework-based approach.
During Summer 2019, we worked together to develop Klinik’s Dashboard. The dashboard is meant for the heads of health facilities to understand the flow of patients from the first contact to the closure of the case, as well as to provide insight on what are the most common ailments, symptoms, and medical conditions. Part of this project involved a redesign of Klinik’s existing version of the dashboard, to make it more accessible and easy to use.
