Re-Engineered and Modernized a Legacy EMR System A major US-based EMR solutions provider
The client is a leading provider of Healthcare Information Management (HIM) solutions, specializing in the electronic release of medical records for health care providers. With a strong market presence, the client has been a key player in facilitating the secure and efficient exchange of medical information.
Prior to engaging with Ejyle, the client encountered significant challenges with their existing legacy platform. Recognizing the need for a comprehensive solution, they sought our expertise to re-engineer their legacy application and modernize it to align with their current and future business requirements. Ejyle was entrusted to transform the existing platform into a robust, scalable, and high-performance system.
Performance and Scalability
Performance and scalability of the existing MR Request & Response application platform was a key challenge. The goal was to improve responsiveness and handle increasing data volumes and user loads efficiently.
Maintaining and Enhancing Maintainability
The legacy architecture and outdated technologies posed challenges in maintaining the application. It was required to reduce costs and streamline future updates and enhancements.
Flexibility and Extensibility
The client needed a flexible and easily extensible application platform to adapt to changing business needs, regulatory requirements, and future integrations.
Providing multi-tenant capabilities while ensuring data isolation, security, and customization options for different tenants was a challenge.
HIPAA Compliance and Cloud Infrastructure
Leveraging a HIPAA compliant cloud infrastructure added complexity in terms of data security, privacy, and regulatory compliance.
To address these challenges the approach was as follows:
Enhanced Performance and Scalable Design
- Optimized data processing at the most appropriate layer, minimizing server round trips and reducing unnecessary processing.
- Avoided storing per-user data on the server, enabling efficient handling of user requests.
- Implemented data caching mechanisms to improve response times and reduce database load.
- Designed the application with a stateless architecture, enhancing scalability and resilience.
- Separated read-only requests from transactional requests to optimize performance.
- Enabled data paging for efficient handling of large datasets.
- Implemented a scalable design to support both scale-up and scale-out solutions, allowing for increased capacity as the application grows.
- Developed a scalable, configurable, and multi-tenant-efficient architecture.
- Utilized a shared database with a high degree of data isolation to ensure security and privacy between tenants.
Responsive Web Design
- Implemented a responsive web design approach using the Bootstrap framework.
- This ensured that the application’s web pages were appropriately formatted and visually appealing on various devices, including desktops, tablets, and mobile phones.
- Employed standardized service contracts to promote interoperability and ease of integration.
Utilized loose coupling, abstraction, and reusability principles to enhance flexibility and maintainability.
Cloud-Based Application Hosting
- Leveraged the Azure platform for hosting the application, providing a secure and scalable infrastructure.
- Utilized the AWS platform for secure document storage, ensuring compliance with data privacy and security regulations.
