When Boston Heart set out to build its wellness portal, a key component was UI. After evaluating a number of development tools, it concluded that Progress® Kendo UI® offered the most features and functionality to create the exceptional end user experience essential to adoption. At the same time Boston Heart concluded that Telerik® DevCraft™ was the ideal toolset to speed development and increase productivity at the backend.
“It (Kendo UI) allows the user to interact dynamically, whether it’s on the desktop or a mobile device—and it allows them to readily communicate, respond and take appropriate action,” said Shalom Keynan, Director of Application Development for Boston Heart. “I find Kendo UI very useful and robust. The sliders, grid lists, calendars and many other widgets help our developers rapidly build user-friendly functionality into the system.”
Boston Heart was also seeking to create a more deeply personalized solution to keep patients engaged. It needed a business rules solution to help build customizable patient reports based on lab test results and nutrition, lifestyle and behavioral data.
“Progress® Corticon® allows our scientific team to author rules and our development team to use and consume them inside our application,” Keynan said. “We don’t need to have developers involved in writing rules.”
