From Fast to Faster: Boost Developer Talent with High-Productivity Platforms

Fast is no longer fast enough when it comes to building applications.

Long are the days when developing apps and taking them to market could constitute a lengthy project. Unforgiving market competition and increasing business demands have led the app development lifecycle to shorten dramatically, with apps expected to be market-ready within weeks.

Creating Native Mobile Apps Without Writing Native Code

Native programming can strike fear into the heart of anyone that doesn't know how to write it. While we as programmers understand our limits and capabilities, we still like to brag about the complicated function or route we just wrote. But just drop the words "Objective C, or Android Java" into the next conversation you have with fellow programmers and see who starts biting their nails.

Next Generation Low Code Platforms Snub Citizen Developers

As businesses trend more toward buy-not-build solutions, they look to development platforms that can offer frictionless delivery of applications without needing to provide additional training for developers. Therefore, it is important to differentiate between the high-productivity/low-code approaches and the 'citizen developer' approach: one is for dev professionals looking to operate more efficiently, and the other is, essentially, an amateur programmer creating simple applications – not ideal for professional IT delivery.

JavaScript Has Come a Long Way and Shows No Sign of Slowing

Since its release more than 20 years ago, JavaScript has gone through a lot. But even though it has come so far, the language continues to grow and evolve, and interest in using it is still rising. JavaScript is an incredibly approachable language, which probably has something to do with why it has become so popular among developers. Its robust community continues to add to JavaScript’s rich ecosystem of libraries and frameworks.

Globally, health systems are facing a triple threat: increasing demands on clinical resources; decreased government spending on healthcare; and a movement toward value-based care.  The Darwinian petri dish of economic health policy change will be perceived by some health systems as formidable challenges, but others will embrace these economic health policy shifts as opportunities for reinvention and innovation.

Is the Patient In? Using Automated, Mobile Apps to Reduce Patient No-Shows

Even with advances in IT, curbing patient no-shows has amounted to healthcare practitioners being busy doing something, but slightly different than the day before.

It is estimated that in 2015, no-shows, on average, cost a single provider nearly $150,000. When you factor for inflation, that same provider, in 2018, would be losing closer to $160,000 in revenue. Text messages and phone calls are ubiquitous, and mining structured and unstructured data from these patient-provider interactions is rarely seamless. More often than not, it is a costly Sisyphean effort that does not lead to actionable, proactive practice changes that can reduce patient no-shows.
