Biomedical Software Development
Custom biomedical software applications have special considerations that require a particular level of expertise when it comes to HIPAA compliance and FDA approval. We have worked with clients at various stages of their biomedical software development process, sometimes taking over where a previous developer left the project, while at other times working with a project from the initial idea through to the FDA approval process.
We can collaborate with your in-house managers, designers and developers to build the type of software solution you need to manage patient data, improve communications between physicians and patients (as well as between physicians and administrators), or to train and test your employees.
Examples of our work in biomedical software development include:
- Field data calibration
- Patient data collection (working with Big Data)
- Medical data consolidation
- Physician/Patient communications
- Instruction apps
Our engineers are based in North America and have worked on medical software projects for major educational institutes as well as corporate clients throughout the country. We are comfortable with the stringent levels of accountability and traceability required for dealing responsibly with medical information hardware and software and are committed to meeting our clients’ needs with highest levels of protection.
It’s been a pleasure working with Art+Logic’s app development team to build the Emergency Medicine Residents’ Association (EMRA) PressorDex app. As a physician who works in a high-intensity work environment like the emergency department or intensive care unit, a clinical application’s content must be clear, reliable, and easy to use. The developers at Art+Logic have been extremely responsive in making sure that our app’s functionality meets these needs as well as what our users want. — John C.

While working on your software application, we will adhere to the policies, risk management protocols, hardware and software safeguards and compliance standards required when dealing with sensitive Electronic Protected Health Information (ePHI).
Developing HIPAA compliant software requires extensive knowledge of the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of ePHI as well as the HIPAA Security Rule, which provides standards for access control, audit controls, integrity, authentication, and transmission security. We know the type of information that must be protected and can implement the necessary safeguards to protect electronic health information.
Our developers are also experienced with the HIPAA Privacy Rule, which “provides federal protections for individually identifiable health information held by covered entities and their business associates and gives patients an array of rights with respect to that information. At the same time, the Privacy Rule is balanced so that it permits the disclosure of health information needed for patient care and other important purposes.” For more information on HIPAA Compliance, we recommend visiting the US Department of Health and Human Services.
Our software engineers are aware of the importance of risk analysis and the significance of device- and media-control policies as well as the safeguards needed when using Internet applications that manage private health information. Let us help you avoid the costly vulnerability of unpatched and unsupported software.
Biomedical Software Applications
We will work with your POC and offer our experience and perspective to help translate your idea into a viable product. We design medical applications that are easy to use by doctors in the ER when they need information quickly, or by researchers who have to juggle enormous amounts of lab data and research results. Our UI/UX designers also create user-friendly apps that meet the needs of patients while being easy to use.

Employee Training & Testing Software
Whether you are developing employee educational software from scratch, need to update your API or want us to port your software from one programming language or device to another, we can work with you to ensure that your employees receive the type of educational tools they need in order to improve their critical knowledge base. Want to update your computer-based educational software to take more advantage of the features available through iPads or tablet? Get in touch, our developers are experts at working with and/or updating source code when required.
- Employee testing applications
- Education and training
- Online accreditation
Discussing your project with one of our developers is a great way to begin the process.
We’ve developed software for over 900 clients, including Apple, Google, and NASA.
