PHP web applications leverage RPG and mobile devices to give manufacturer competitive edge

When Rob Binetti began working as a Web Software Developer for Central Semiconductor Corp., he recommended that Central use WebSmart PHP for their new web application development.

Already a seasoned PHP developer, Rob knew that WebSmart PHP would provide the tools he'd need to create desktop and mobile PHP web applications that leverage Central Semiconductor's legacy RPG programs. "I'm a PHP web developer, though I can read RPG. In my current environment, there are a ton of existing business logic calls that I use," explains Rob.

Bosma Technology Resources simplifies healthcare practice management with MediFACTS

Bosma Technology Resources used WebSmart ILE to develop MediFACTS, a browser-based healthcare practice management system. The HIPAA-compliant system electronically integrates the clinical side of a medical practice or surgery center with its financial side. According to BTR, MediFACTS is "a new approach to the healthcare industry's 'black hole' of information technology". It provides doctors, authorized users, and patients with secure, reliable access to practice and facility information from PCs and tablets.

MediFACTS replaces paper-based processes with online billing and collections, appointment scheduling, appointment reminders, patient encounters, e-prescriptions, registration, coding and visual reporting. It's designed to reduce billing cycles with electronic claims submission, and maximize claim reimbursement by scrubbing data before it's sent to insurers. It also reduces overhead by simplifying system management, data entry and access to information.
