When choosing a digital health consulting firm, experience is paramount. Not only does your team need the technological know-how, but they also need in-depth knowledge of how the healthcare system works. Here’s what you should look for when choosing a digital health consulting firm.
Creating a healthcare app that people want to use takes more than tech-savvy, familiarity with clinical terminology, and an understanding of HIPAA laws — although those are important too. A good digital health consulting firm knows how to talk to doctors, properly structure interviews to make sure you don’t get bogged down in the wrong details, and translate it all into workflows that enable clinicians to be more efficient while creating a user experience that keeps patients coming back.
Custom apps can take a notoriously long time to build, and those timelines can be extended even further when you bring healthcare and privacy concerns into the equation. When interviewing potential digital health consultants, be sure to ask about the timeline and how they plan to reduce the time-to-market and keep to a schedule.
You get what you pay for. It’s a cliche but it’s true — most of the time. When it comes to choosing a digital health consultant, it’s important not to be tempted to save a little extra money by choosing the cheapest developers, but you don’t need to go with the most expensive option either.
The most expensive options don’t always have more experience — in fact, it often just means the company has more overhead. A big team can also mean an impersonal touch, where you never get to communicate directly with your developer.
Meanwhile, the cheapest option may be able to deliver a working app, but they won’t be able to engage with you on a strategic level. What’s the problem being solved? Your developer should not only be able to answer that question, but should understand it intimately. That’s the only way to build a truly innovative app that leverages technology to solve long-standing systemic issues.
