Top 10 Healthcare Software Development Companies 2023 for Risk-free Digital Transformation

Digital Transformation
8 min read

As technology advances, data expands and connected devices grow in number exponentially, hospitals and healthcare providers seek solutions to digitalize their processes. In 2023, a healthcare provider would only naturally want to streamline their operations by incorporating a fleet of software to support both their backend and patient-facing activities. Options abound – from Electronic Health Records, to healthcare-focused ERP and BI systems and more.

And while there’s no shortage of solutions to boost healthcare efficiency, digital transformation here is still in its early stages. Say, EHR implementation – oftentimes the initial step in healthcare digital transformation – is done only in 75% of the US hospitals. At this, many healthcare professionals report difficulties getting used to EHRs or how inconvenient the new way of data management is, which may jeopardize further technology adoption in their respective institutions. 

Along with very natural technology acceptance issues – such as the fear of change – engineering mistakes or incompetent vendors may cause technology aversion. Although we cannot change overnight how things are done as far as software development in healthcare goes – and definitely not a bit about the victims of scammer developers – I can give you a few recommendations as to where to go look for high-quality development services.

The criteria we used to choose healthcare software development companies for this listing

Below, I provide a brief overview of the custom healthcare software development companies. Working for a software developer myself, I tried to make this list of the healthcare software vendors unbiased and representative. When preparing for this blog post, I researched agencies that have been in the market for at least 5+ years, have an extensive portfolio of healthcare projects, expertise in adjacent areas – insurance, fintech – was considered as a plus, but not obligatory. Vendors’ geographies span three continents (Americas and Eurasia); developer’s hourly rates in this article range from $25 to 199.

Is your perfect fit among those listed below? Let’s check!

They know a thing or two about healthcare software development.


Which one is right for you?

Each situation is unique, so some of those vendors may not be an option for you due to budgetary constraints or location mismatch. Yet, I tried to make this list as diverse and representative as possible, so that it might suit the needs of the majority of our readers looking for high-quality healthcare engineering solutions.

It’s worth mentioning that although all the above medical software development companies provide professional development services, there’s no particular certification needed to be allowed to do software development in this highly regulated industry. Thus, when looking for a vendor, pay attention to the core partnership data first – the skill matrix, team scalability options, partnership/cooperation models (find the corresponding information about Symfa in our Team staffing profile). As for the data security and compliance for your application, don’t think twice about clarifying those issues before the development begins, in the Presale phase.
