As healthcare software projects often interact with patient data at multiple points in the workflow, due to both native security concerns and regulatory requirements, adherence to secure development practices during the development process of healthcare software is of utmost concern.  In new software development projects, proper security practices should be embedded throughout the programing and testing phase of the project.  In existing software, it would be prudent to perform a security audit to verify that the software is following the proper protocols in data encryption, communication, and storage.

Another key concern during healthcare software development are the data processing components and capabilities.  An important guideline is to allow data processing personnel full access to data, and limit manual updates.  Each manual data update not only takes time from the development team, but also introduces room for error and instability.  If a particular data error has happened before, and will likely happen again, it will be much more prudent to develop an interface for that update, than to manually wrangle the database data.

In order to ensure the flexibility and scalability of the data, a well-designed database is a key element of most healthcare software projects.  In addition to following the standard rules of data normalization, the database can offer opportunities for reduction in future maintenance costs, as well as prevent mistakes and errors, which can be extremely costly both in reputation and liability.  As such, an effective healthcare application should follow structured development methodology to ensure proper function throughout the lifecycle of the system.
