Case Study: Blood Pressure Monitoring
Application migration and feature enhancement of a desktop application for blood pressure monitoring device
A North American medical devices manufacturer offering products and technologies related to blood pressure monitoring. One of its leading products is related to ambulatory blood pressure monitoring (ABPM). The product range includes bench-top and hand-held instruments, used in diagnostics at Hospitals and Care Centers.
The client was working on hardware feature enhancements for the existing ABPM product. The software needed updating to support the new hardware enhancement as well as important market aligned functionalities.
However, there was not enough technical / user documentation for the legacy product.
The existing software was difficult to maintain as it was developed in an older technology thus was not a candidate for accommodating the feature enhancements on the hardware and software side.
Also, the existing software did not have a market leading UI that was in line with the latest UX and features.
In order to support a long-term product road-map, the best option was to port the legacy blood pressure monitoring software to a newer platform. While porting, update the software functionality for the new features related to hardware and software updates.
