MedicalDirector announces 100th development sprint for Helix

31 May, 2021

MedicalDirector, today announced 100 development sprints for their flagship cloud clinical software product, Helix.

The leading cloud software product for general practice has been in development for five and a half years, with new features released fortnightly — including advanced patient search, SMS recalls, fully integrated telehealth and automated drug updates.

Unlike traditional on-premise clinical software, a hallmark of the Helix user interface is its dynamic, multi-panel layout, allowing GPs to view and update key clinical inputs from a single screen. The software also combines clinical and practice management workflows into the one software package, creating a seamless experience for the practice.

Head of Product and Design at MedicalDirector, Marcus Holstein described the milestone as monumental. “Our investment in 100 development sprints for MedicalDirector Helix represents a real product maturity”, he said, “cloud infrastructure has enabled us to innovate quickly, and release crucial functionality to our healthcare industry. The impact of this can be life-changing”.

As MedicalDirector looks towards its development roadmap for the next few months, Medicare Web Services, secure message delivery, medication charts, bulk uploading of documents and improved task management will be key releases. For practices using MedicalDirector Helix, this functionality will be become available automatically, without the need for manual upgrades.
