Rising Low-Code Movement in Healthcare
The low-code movement is breaking into the healthcare industry. A next generation concept, low-code is a visual approach to software development that optimizes the entire development process to accelerate delivery with automation. Think of Salesforce as a low-code software. Low-code fills a much-needed talent gap allowing professional and citizen developers alike to more efficiently build and deploy applications. Gartner predicts that by 2024, low-code application development will be responsible for more than 65% of application development activity. Experts believe low-code is the future of app and enterprise system development, and just like AI, could be a vital key to unlocking healthcare’s ability to meet consumer (patient) expectations for how they access and experience healthcare.
“We are excited to pioneer the combined strength of modern digital engineering with low-code engineering to our healthcare and life sciences customers,” said emids Chief Technology Officer Kumar Kolin. “This will accelerate their digital transformation and consumer experience journey at an unprecedented pace.”
