Hospitals save millions of lives every year; pharmacies help maintain and improve the health of millions every year (thus also saving millions). But in addition to their primary cause of saving lives and promoting good health, they also have a business to run. For most in these industries, this is a fine line to walk: we deserve a profit, but no one wants to deny care to those in need to save a shilling or two. So in order to have a successful enterprise in this industry, you need to be innovative in multiple spheres. Improved technologies for long-term savings are a must. Medical equipment is a rapidly evolving field and it’s important to make sure your business has top of the line equipment. This makes you more attractive as a State-of-the-Art facility; plus tech is becoming ever better at detecting disease and ailments early on. Early detection means prevention, plus decreased costs associated with lethal, emergency, and expensive diseases such as cancer. In addition to the hardware, pharmacies and hospitals need to invest in the backend software infrastructure. While research and top of the line medical devices help save lives and are necessary for success, hospitals and pharmacies also need to manage behind the scene processes. These processes include routine operations like filling subscriptions or managing employees. Improving these “hum-drum” activities can help streamline your business into a lean, green, healing machine. Not brag, but SDI has an inordinate amount of experience in building software to improve backend processes to improve business efficiencies – including in the healthcare industry.

More precisely, our master coders program software infrastructures that span entire organizations, fitting like a custom-made glove.
