Software requirements specifications

Software Requirements Specification (SRS) contains detailed information and descriptions of how the software system will meet user requirements. We prepare it in tight collaboration with the client, to establish a mutual understanding of all the details related to the wanted behavior of the software system. The document normally includes functional requirements specification of software solutions (related to features from a user point-of-view), as well as non-functional requirements specification (technical requirements), which are other technical qualities that the system for healthcare providers must exhibit, such as durability, security, reliability, uptime, etc.

Depending on the project, this phase can include workshop/s, meetings, as well as usability tests, preparation of mockups, and prototypes. Detailed SRS document is an excellent basis for system design, development project costs, and the project timeline.

Software design specifications

The Software Design Specifications (SDS) contain detailed information on how the life sciences software will achieve its intended use. This is achieved by specifying in detail the design of the software system. The SDS documents cover both functional specifications (individual screens, features, functions, and user flows within the software), as well as non-functional specifications (user interface elements, technical architecture of the software system, management systems, and similar).

We usually write these documents in the form of Epics and use them as the blueprint of how the software will be built. We can prepare additional documents for you, such as Risk Assessment and Technical Decisions Document.

UX/UI Design

We pay a lot of attention to UX design, since it can present a significant competitive advantage of devices in the life sciences field. Our team of designers is dedicated to delivering intuitive user interfaces of the software solutions.

They understand product specifications, develop wireframes and prototypes around your needs, find creative ways to solve UX problems (e.g. usability, findability) and communicate design ideas and prototypes to software developers.

They join their UX expertise with UI knowledge to implement attractive designs that enable faster user adoption in healthcare services by the end-users.

Algorithm development

Our experienced algorithm developers with life sciences domain knowledge can support you in software algorithm development (including data analysis), testing, and validation. We ensure the algorithm is correct, efficient, and meets the desired performance criteria.

We can also integrate algorithms into a software application, thus enabling you to offer a complete software solution to your customers.

Testing & QA

Our QA and testing teams work closely with development team to ensure that software is reliable, stable, and performs as expected. We perform manual and automated testing that covers functional testing, performance testing, security testing and others.

The software QA and testing process also involves creating test cases, test plans, and test scripts to ensure comprehensive testing of the software.

Maintenance & support

Effective software maintenance is essential for ensuring that software applications continue to function correctly and meet the changing needs of users in the healthcare sector.

BioSistemika‘s maintenance services include activities such as bug fixing, performance optimization, and feature enhancements, as well as ensuring compatibility with new operating systems and hardware. Our goal is to keep your software applications up-to-date, and running smoothly.

Software architecture consulting

We offer software architecture consulting services, where our senior software architects help you design life sciences software applications that are robust, scalable, maintainable, and operationally efficient. We work closely with your internal teams to ensure that the architecture of the software application aligns with the organization’s business goals and technical requirements.

At the same time, our architects, who have a deep understanding of the latest cutting-edge software development technologies and trends in life sciences, can help you design software in a way that maximizes its reliability, security, and performance, while minimizing the risk of costly errors and maintenance issues in real-time.

Device connectivity consulting and integrations

We help laboratories and device manufacturers define and implement connectivity strategies for their device portfolio in the healthcare industry. Our software development experts have hands-on experience in SILA2 standard, laboratory IoT projects, and device integrations (including mobile solutions).

Depending on your requirements and your business goals, they will work with you to find an optimal solution to your needs (either if you are looking for web development, desktop applications, or mobile applications).

LIMS and ELN consulting services

Our experienced consultants with at-the-bench experience work closely with your laboratory personnel to understand their specific needs and recommend solutions to improve their workflows for easier decision-making. LIMS consulting services focus on the selection, implementation, and integration of LIMS software systems to streamline laboratory operations. This includes assessing the laboratory’s existing data management processes, identifying areas for improvement, and recommending LIMS software solutions that can automate tasks and improve data accuracy and reliability.

ELN consulting services focus on selecting and implementing electronic laboratory notebook software solutions to help scientists and researchers organize, document, and manage their research data. This includes identifying the specific needs of the laboratory or research group, selecting the appropriate ELN software solution, and support during implementation, including change management training.
