The goal of transforming the software from using its previous coding language to the most modern system available was to ensure ClinicTracker’s future by keeping it compatible with emerging technologies. The company was intent on guaranteeing that the software would continue to run on future iterations of operating systems, browsers, and other technologies. For example, ClinicTracker had relied on features like Microsoft MapPoint (for calculating directions) and Adobe Flash (for displaying charts) that have been phased out and replaced by newer methods (like Google Maps and HTML5). This new platform also provides many more options for enhancing the program’s features and interface. In fact, this upgrade includes new features that the old version could not offer, including enhanced compliance automation, reporting improvements, and new features in the Staff and Patient portals.
“We update the features and capabilities of our software regularly, often on a weekly basis. But this project reflects our commitment to prepare ClinicTracker for the long term. We knew we needed to migrate to a new platform if we were going to make sure our customers were using a program based on the ‘latest and greatest’ technology. It was a monumental task to re-engineer 17 years of interfaces, logic, and business intelligence. But it was worth it. We can be confident now that ClinicTracker will be around to serve the mental health and substance abuse communities for at least another 17 years,” said Joshua Gordon, President of ClinicTracker.
Our goal during this process was to keep the same user-friendly look and feel our clients have become accustomed to since they began using ClinicTracker. While current users will see new logos, fonts, icons, styles, and features, they will not need any addition training to use the program itself.
