Collaborative Portal For Nurses

How about developing a portal wherein healthcare professionals, especially neonatal nurses, nationally and internationally could share knowledge, ideas and experiences with each other. This is something that one of our clients from the Healthcare industry in Canada thought of. They wanted this group of professionals to participate in provincial, federal and international health care decision making and policy development regarding the care of newborns and their families through different events.

Key Challenges

This client’s intent was to develop a portal for neonatal nurses to collaborate among themselves as well as with other healthcare providers, both nationally and internationally, to gather and share information related to healthcare decision making, policy development and care for newborns. The portal was also meant to promote knowledge sharing for effective and innovative approaches for neonatal nursing practices and changes in health policy. Registered users were to be allowed to share knowledge, experiences and ideas with other healthcare providers who chose to participate. The idea was to develop two different zones, one for the Administrators to handle their required tasks which included content management on different pages and the other for the external users (nurses).

When they hired ValueCoders, we had to address to the following tasks:

  • An application/tool for pcs and tablets, which can become a platform for sharing.
  • It should be able to handle heavy traffic
  • High quality user interface and fast loading speed

While developing, we faced various challenges including the following ones:

  • Creating different data sets and connecting them with servers
  • Making it a dynamic platform with auto updates
  • Fetching all the data from the database when needed.

Our web app developers at ValueCoders had overcome these challenges with their innovative ideas and technical expertise.

Our Solutions

Beyond the basic specifications which were shared by the client, other additional features needed to be incorporated while developing the portal. ValueCoders offshore SharePoint delivery team rose to the challenge of developing the portal using SharePoint 2007 and delivered it within the agreed upon time frame.

There were were a few major parts in the project which was skillfully handled by the talented development team at ValueCoders. This is how we implemented this web portal.

  • To make a call, the users have free access to login where they can invite/add and find their contacts.
  • Depending on the contact’s presence (Available/Offline) information the application then allows the logged in user to call his contact.
  • In case the user wants to connect to a non-user then she can share a unique URL specifically created for this to connect and set up a conference.
