Continuous Delivery for Cloud Healthcare Apps

Continuous Delivery for Healthcare Apps on the Cloud

Talking about the opportunity, there is a big market waiting for the right product and service over the Internet, or a facility looking for an upgrade in terms of technology.  The Internet and its advances over the Cloud are reinventing the way every Industry interacts with its own customers and provides the service and post-sales support. The total addressable market for the Cloud Healthcare sector is growing bigger each day as better facilities penetrate to smaller cities and the spending capacity of the citizens gets a push. The Cloud in Healthcare Industry is still getting its share of an upgrade to the global digital market.

DevOps and the Cloud in the Healthcare Industry

Usually, companies in the Healthcare Industry end up with huge amounts of data on patient information at their disposal, data that is personal and private and calls for strict security processes and adhere to multiple regulations. The application of DevOps practices over healthcare infrastructure can greatly simplify and speed up all kinds of digital compliance needs and impact cost parameters cash positively.

The goal of a DevOps strategy is to ensure process efficiency and protect the data. Norms and challenges of Data protection for the healthcare industry have changed over the years. Nowadays, data protection and storage deals with the latest technology available in the market, a hybrid cloud model of a dedicated data center and a public or private cloud, or a multi-cloud strategy depending on the company size and needs.  

One Integral part of the whole process is Continuous Delivery for Healthcare apps. IT ensures continuous release if new features as well as safeguards the app from sudden surprises from new releases. Continuous Delivery of a Cloud Healthcare App considers the following aspects:

Automate the Software Release Process

The Software development process is, definitely, not an easy feat, and its complexity is continuously increasing. Cloud Healthcare apps need a complete software development and release process, which can not be completely solved either by the principles of Agile or by continuous integration practices.

A healthcare company requires a high-performance and well-functioning infrastructure, and this can only be achieved by a Continuous Delivery Model, which involves all the development practices. Continuous Delivery is a software strategy based on the automation of processes, making them repeatable and reliable with the purpose of deleting the probability of making mistakes while doing it manually.

Improve Developer Productivity

Developers are in charge of automating as much as possible during the testing process. This automation enables them to have immediate feedback, and as a consequence allows them to make fixes faster than with manual testing processes. Members of the team need to be able to operate independently and collaboratively. A continuous Delivery Model helps to accelerate the cycle time of a cloud healthcare app, at the same time of improving Developers productivity, since its automation will reduce the time that Devs need to test and verify every feature.

Find and Address Bugs Quickly

Continuous Delivery is a set of tools that integrate all test cases in an automated fashion and simulate the testing environment on the go for every bug addressed in any component under consideration. Every healthcare app needs testing. So, as stated before, a Continuous Delivery Model helps Developers to do quicker monitoring, at the same time of finding and addressing bugs quicker. This time reduction can only signify two things.

The first one is a reduction in human efforts, there’s no need to have an exaggeration of developers working on something that can be automated and done by a few of them; and number two, a cost-savings billing.

Deliver Updates Faster

Healthcare apps are needed for quick integration and faster release of features and adherence to any updates in regulations. Continuous Delivery, a strategy capable to offer them continuous software updates. Implementing DevOps practices will allow these infrastructures to update the production environment faster, without any kind of service downtime. Under this approach, companies are witnessing increased productivity within their software development teams. To further enhance Cloud healthcare app functionality and interoperability, it’s pivotal to implement FHIR standards, enabling seamless data exchange and integration across different Cloud healthcare apps and systems.
