CDR President Clark Swain said: “If the pandemic has taught us anything, it’s that you must be able to turn on a dime. To be able to do this in a secure, easy-to-maintain manner, you have to completely rethink how you deliver solutions; low-code technology is the answer. Together, with Emids’ deep healthcare expertise, we can radically transform how systems are created and maintained in the healthcare environment. They’re going to be faster, they’re going to be cheaper, and they’re going to be able to meet the increasing demands of both patients and clinicians.”

Michael Benson, SVP Americas of OutSystems, said the partnership is groundbreaking for healthcare and will fundamentally change how enterprise software is developed.

“With partners like Emids, we’re solving a critical problem in healthcare by helping IT departments tackle the widening IT skills gap, keep up with the incredibly fast pace of change—particularly with mobile apps—focus on the user experience, build better solutions and do it three to 10 times faster,” Benson said.

Emids has built its reputation as one of healthcare’s most trusted partners for health information technology (HIT) engineering and development, bringing clients industry-leading data science, engineering, and business strategy acumen plus the ability to take an innovative idea from concept to MVP to full-scale enterprise solution and with speed to market.
