Mendix Helps Saga Quickly Innovate New Application for Home Healthcare

Seeking digital business agility, UK’s leading provider of elder
services chose Mendix to speed time to market for its new private
healthcare at home offering

a leading provider of application Platform-as-a-Service (aPaaS), today
announced that Saga
in the United Kingdom is using the Mendix platform to
help it implement an innovative digital business model for managing and
delivering key aspects of its private healthcare at home service.

Saga chose the Mendix platform to rapidly build the software and
multi-device user interfaces it requires to deliver high-quality,
efficient and transparent healthcare at home services. The first
application went live on August 17, and was delivered on time and under
budget. With development taking just 12 weeks, around half the time of
using other technologies, the application allows nurses, care
professionals and back-office staff to interact with Saga online. The
next phase of the project will provide patients and their families with
access to key information via an online portal. Built on Mendix, Saga’s
new technology-enabled service will be able to rapidly adapt to new
business and market needs.

“We initially considered off-the-shelf software packages, which offered
some customisation to our needs,” said Mark Newcomb, Head of IT at Saga
Healthcare. “We elected instead to innovate our own applications on
Mendix, an approach we’ve found faster and more flexible, which also
allows us to quickly accommodate change as we look to redefine the home
healthcare market.”

At Saga, development teams have been able to collaborate with key
stakeholders to ensure applications closely match the business
requirements. Mendix’s visual development environment and agile project
management capabilities empower small, cross-functional teams to build
applications in short, iterative cycles together with end users. The
result is faster time to market and greater business agility, which
means that organisations can better capitalise on new opportunities.

“Digital businesses all have critical information processes—and
software—at their core, which must continually evolve for the benefit of
customers and for competitive advantage,” said Reza Warnink, Vice
President of EMEA at Mendix. “We are delighted that Saga Healthcare is
building an innovative digital business with Mendix and we look forward
to seeing their services grow and evolve in the coming months and years.”
