A top healthcare startup based in New York, USA with a mission to make clinical research accessible to all by improving transparency and diversity in clinical trials. approached Metric Tree Labs for its MVP development in 2018. At that point in time, the startup was an idea-stage company and the founders were trying to launch a prototype to test their hypothesis in the market.
The consultants at Metric Tree Labs sat down with the founders and got involved from day one starting from the User Experience Design Phase to the launch of a Minimum Viable Product in under 3 months.
Tech stack used for MVP Development:
React Native for Mobile,
MERN Stack for Web and Backend.
Mobile App(Phone and iPad) for Doctors to manage patient data like EHR (Electronic Health Records).
Web App For Doctors to manage patient data and Electronic Health Records.
