Allergan, Inc. is a multi-specialty healthcare company focused on discovering, developing and commercializing innovative pharmaceuticals, biologics and medical devices that enable people to live life to its greatest potential.

Business Situation

Allergan is the innovative leader in many healthcare products. For each healthcare product, Allergan develops a creative and consumer friendly web site promoting their product. A feature of each product site is the ability to “find-a-doctor” that can provide the necessary medical care and stewardship. Allergan asked Fairway Technologies to develop a single “find a doctor” portal that ALL product sites could use and leverage.

Technical Situation

Each product site was developed with a different ‘find-a-doctor' architecture. This increased development dollars, time and also increased ongoing maintenance expenses.

Solution

Fairway Technologies designed web-service portal to support the multi-product architecture. Hence, any Allergan product site can easily be modified to direct any ‘find a doctor' functionality to the new ‘find a doctor' portal. This portal site included the usage of the Google mapping engine with unique customizations to enhance the user's (consumer's) experience.

Benefits

Allergan now can move towards a common interface for all of its consumer based products saving money and time. To see it live, please visit http://www.botoxcosmetic.com/ and click on the find a doctor link.

Downey Regional Medical Center is dedicated to providing the latest state-of-the-art healthcare, highly skilled medical teams and a warm, healing environment for patients and their families. Located in the City of Downey, this 199-bed, non-profit community hospital stands among the finest medical facilities in Southern California.

Business Situation

DRMC's website was ‘hard coded' and very labor intensive to update and required skilled programmers to change. Fairway Technologies was engaged to install and configure the PDSA Web Authoring System 3.0 into their environment. We built a new web site that gathered its content from the content manager. We trained content providers (HR, PR, etc.) to create, edit and update content. We also provided a WYSIWYG test environment so they could see what their changes would look like prior to going live.

Benefits

PDSA's solution enabled quick updates to the web site by the actual content authors rather than programmers. The solution also allowed approval of content and viewing of content before going live. This solution saved time, money and increased productivity.

Kaiser Permanente is an integrated managed care organization, based in Oakland, California, founded in 1945 by industrialist Henry J. Kaiser and physician Sidney R. Garfield. Kaiser Permanente is a consortium of three distinct groups of entities: the Kaiser Foundation Health Plan, Inc. and its regional operating organizations, Kaiser Foundation Hospitals, and the Permanente Medical Groups. As of 2006, Kaiser Permanente operates in nine states and Washington, D.C., and is the largest managed care organization in the United States.

Business Situation

KP's challenge was to improve their ability to respond to their internal customer's IT requirements. Antiquated technology and IT business processes reduced response times and customers' perceptions.

Solution

PDSA, Inc. was engaged to provide a variety of capabilities: the .NET Productivity Framework to enable their developers to create .Net application much more quickly, .Net training so their developers could migrate from COBOL, PowerBuilder and other legacy technologies more quickly, Fairway Technologies best practices so they could learn the best approach to not only building applications but the management practice as well, and lastly, KP outsourced the building of their initial applications to PDSA.

Benefits

This engagement enabled KP to ‘jump start' their migration to the .Net technologies very quickly and provide demonstrable results in record time and under budget.

Our clients represent diverse hospital profiles: small independent hospitals, large health systems, academic and non-academic organizations, and hospitals with and without computerized provider order entry (CPOE) or electronic medical record (EMR) systems.

Business Situation

Zynx is embarking on a critical project to migrate to the latest .NET technologies and redesign their authoring architecture.

Solution

PDSA, Inc. was engaged to provide a leadership role in the design of their new architecture. Some of our tasks were to:

  • Improve performance & scalability
  • Define elements of problem domain & supplemental requirements
  • Implement for security, flxibility & other quality requirements
  • Ensure design follows standards, architecture and SDLC
  • Keep business rules in the business layer and out of the UI
  • Other details requirements
  • Determine design risks and recommend remediations

Benefits

This engagement enabled Zynx to receive a new and different perspective or validation to their initial design and architecture approach.
