Learning SQL and a Smattering of Python

By Scott Burns

I want to let you in on a little secret: our product, strategic resources group (SRG), and data services team members are the real healthcare experts here at Stratasan.

Our team of developers are pros at what they do: running data warehouses and computing infrastructure that our applications use to store and analyze complex healthcare datasets. But we rely heavily on the expertise of our team members to prioritize what needs to be developed within our applications.

Based on their direction, we learn what our customers are asking for and then determine what new features and products to build. Working hand in hand, our teams create useful tools that can derive insightful meaning from healthcare data.

Recognizing the need to close the gap between our development know-how and their healthcare insight, we’ve taken steps to improve the flow of communication between our teams and proactively facilitate interdepartmental collaboration. Our goal is to decrease the time it takes to get a product to market so we can more efficiently address the needs and goals of our partners.

Developing Our New Software: Why We Love React, Redux, and Django

Posted by Scott Burns on Apr 18, 2017 8:00:00 AM

As we’ve approached the release of our newest software, Launch Pathway, we have blogged about how Launch Pathway compares to other business intelligence tools, why data visualization is so important, and why hospitals and health systems should focus on the right data over big data.

 

Now in this post, a few members of our development team are taking the opportunity to share some of what they experienced while building this new software. As developers, this post is partly a love letter to the Stratasan tools and also an opportunity to share our philosophy on iteratively delivering large projects. With that in mind, we hope you enjoy.

Confident Asset Deployments with Webpack & Django, part 4

Posted by Scott Burns on Sep 29, 2016 3:06:41 PM

  

In the previous post in this series, we've described how at Stratasan, we integrate our Webpack builds into our main Django application. By moving the specific links to our Javascript and CSS out of our Django templates and instead using django-webpack-loader to render these tags, our deployments become more stable and less error-prone.

We want to finish this series with a few niceties that we've built for ourselves to improve our process of delivering valuable software to our clients.
