azh Organizing Physiotherapy Practices
Therapy-in-Montion (TiM) is an easy to handle, powerful desktop application enabling digital end-to-end management of physiotherapy practice
azh GmbH is a subsidiary of NOVENTI GmbH (former VSA). Today over 20000 clients in Germany rely on software products and services of azh to process billings with health insurance providers of medical invoices and prescriptions.
azh has set an ambitious goal of bringing to the market a powerful, yet user-friendly software product that would manage and simplify 100% of daily operations in physiotherapy practices. The envisioned Therapy-in-Motion (TiM) application should be end-to-end solution for management of patient data and diagnosis history, scheduling treatments, managing prescriptions and billings.
However, the project stumbled half-way on technical challenges and consequent delays. azh needed a reliable IT partner to help it meet the shrinking market window for the product under limited budgets.
SaM Solutions came on board as an experienced IT partner, specializing in custom software development, also leveraging the global delivery model.
Within a few weeks SaM Solutions ramped-up a team that worked out a roadmap for project completion. It spanned 14 months and included finalization of usability and feature requirements, design and delivery of the software, as well as rigorous testing and software quality assurance activities. The architecture and technology stack were completely revamped, to take advantage of open-source frameworks and technologies shortening the development cycle and ensuring easier supportability of the software code.
Despite all time limitations and geographical distribution of the project team, the azh product management and SaM Solutions IT professionals established effective working process to align business priorities and communicate industry-specific requirements efficiently. The nearshore team of SaM Solutions ensured paced delivery of the software application under strictly observance of predefined quality metrics and project KPIs, in strict compliance with fixed schedule and budget.
