Medable has developed a suite of proprietary technology products to help deliver digitally enabled and data driven clinical trials to accelerate drug development to enable therapies to get to patients faster.

The products we were asked to customize and extend were the Medable API and the Axon Mobile App. The Medable API is a platform to build scalable, EHR interoperable, HIPAA compliant applications. Axon is a mobile app solution that enables researchers to deliver smartphone-based clinical studies on top of the Medable API.

Medable + Topflight

As Medable works with global life sciences organizations and healthcare companies that have multiple clinical sites across the world, their in-house team was not able to accommodate every client request.

They needed a development partner, but Medable had a hard time finding partners that could keep up with the rapid change of pace in healthcare. They needed developers that understood their codebase well enough to customize it, add to it, and also stay on top of it as new code commits were made to it from multiple parties.

So, they looked for a strong, scalable technical partner to serve as a true extension of the Medable brand and team.

At Medable, we work with leading healthcare organizations across the world, and we needed a collaborative development partner that could help deliver on a variety of project requests. Over the past few years, Topflight has consistently helped enable product customizations to meet specific customer requests in a timely manner. Those solutions are currently being used by some of the top institutions in the world to advance healthcare.

Project #1

We designed and coded a pilot project where we uploaded environmental data to the Medable API given a GPS location or address, allowing researchers to better correlate symptoms of specific diseases to environmental factors.

We designed and coded a pilot project where we uploaded environmental data to the Medable API given a GPS location or address, allowing researchers to better correlate symptoms of specific diseases to environmental factors.

Features & Interface

We designed a clean user interface that allowed the easy entry of location data when GPS was unavailable, contained a warm and patient-friendly delightful graphic backdrop to lighten the dump of environmental data, and which included an easy-to-interpret “speedometer” display for key environmental data to make the severity of toxic particulate matter visually clear.

The pilot project took two weeks to complete and demonstrated our core competency with the Medable API, ultimately leading to the following project opportunities.

Project #2

We worked with a Fortune 100 pharmaceutical company to design and develop
a dashboard to visualize and analyze the results of a remote clinical trial study.

We worked with a Fortune 100 pharmaceutical company to design and develop a dashboard to visualize and analyze the results of a remote clinical trial study.

The application was implemented using the Medable Axon App and the Medable API. Participants used a custom version of the Medable Axon App and a smart device as part of the study.

For this project, we also integrated data from IoT devices (a smart flowmeter and a smart pillbox), to build a real-time data-visualization dashboard that allowed clinical trial managers to view and analyze the study data.

This project took two months to complete, and the clinical trial has now launched in Europe and is ongoing.

Project #3

We worked with a healthcare company to modify an existing platform to manage medical supply orders in compliance with orthopedic practices.

 

We rewrote the platform in Angular 5, and implemented a streamlined workflow that would initiate a creation of orders that could then be used for insurance reimbursement.

 

The platform now fully integrates with Cin7 for inventory tracking and management, and generates the required documentation with ICD10 codes to file for payor reimbursement.

The initial project took two months to complete, and is now launched to paying customers. We have since been engaged for two subsequent projects to continue expanding functionalities based on customer feedback.

Project #4

We worked with a top medical research hospital to develop a HIPAA-compliant
custom dashboard on iOS and Android phones to visualize health data during
the time period surrounding a fainting episode.

Participants wore devices to track their heart rate, and we coded custom scripts to pull data from Apple HealthKit and Google Fit into the app.

We created a custom dashboard that now provides a visualization of the data and feedback regarding symptoms related to the study. We also built in geofencing capabilities to detect when a patient was near a hospital for a certain period of time, with real-time alert notification asking if the reason for the hospital visit was study related. The notification would then prompt a user to complete a survey. Read our detailed case study.

The initial project took three months to complete, and is now launched in Apple and Google app stores. The study is now actively recruiting for 100,000 patients.

Results

Since we started working with Medable in late 2017, they have continued to report stratospheric growth, increasing their presence with some of the top healthcare institutions in the world, and reaching more than 750,000 patients.

 

By employing a development partner who is able to handle the customizations of their core product for customers, they have since been able to “divide and conquer”, and ultimately streamline in-house development toward an end-to-end platform to enable therapies to get to market faster. This is a high-growth focus area that is projected to accelerate their business tenfold as the life sciences industry continues to adopt new digital technology tools and platforms.
