Today, the entire Boston Heart community of patients, providers and dietitians enjoy a state-of-the-art portal that promotes the free flow of information to positively impact patient outcomes. From a development standpoint, Progress allows Boston Heart to bring new functionality to market—fast.
“From a time to market perspective, Progress helps us speed the development process by at least 40 percent,” Keynan said. “It allows us to control the overall solution and create the very best rich user experience. It is the best solution out there. We look at Progress not just as a platform or utilities, but as a partner for successful development.”
An integral component of a successful partnership is customer support. “We found that the documentation, the community and tech support gave us helpful answers to whatever questions we had. We know we can leverage the relationship and keep building better and better applications,” Keynan said.
“With the Progress platform we have the opportunity to build truly great digital experiences that can directly affect patient behavior,” Keynan concluded. “All the pieces are in place for us to move the bar higher to motivate people to improve their health through evidence-based information presented where they want it, when they want it and on any device they may be using.”
