The development of medical apps is a challenging and complex task that requires a deep understanding of the medical industry, regulatory requirements and state-of-the-art technologies. At seleon GmbH, we have more than 25 years of experience in medical technology, which has enabled us to successfully implement and continuously optimise a mature and proven development process in over 600 projects.

In this third article, we would like to present our proven solutions for the development of medical apps and highlight the associated challenges.

Proof of concept and market studies to minimise risk

A crucial step in the development of medical apps is the structured and documented recording of design requirements. At seleon, we rely on a proof of concept to identify risks at an early stage and develop suitable solutions. This approach allows us to practically review the planned design and ensure that it meets the requirements. At this stage, we create at least one click dummy and ideally a near-complete app that is tested in collaboration with end users. This helps to validate the requirements and improve usability. We also conduct market studies to determine the acceptance of the app and optimise its positioning in the market.

Experienced development teams and modern methods

An experienced development team is crucial to minimise development risks. Our teams at seleon are familiar with the latest development methods and technologies. They are able to work independently, which minimises the coordination effort and leads to well-founded decision-making. Thanks to their experience in other medical projects, the familiarisation period is shorter and an in-depth medical understanding is already in place. Our developers contribute valuable expertise, which significantly increases the quality and efficiency of app development. This promotes seamless integration with other medical systems and compliance with regulatory requirements.

Efficient development process and agile methods

At seleon, our projects are realised by experienced and certified software project managers, architects and developers. A clear allocation of roles ensures clear priorities and prevents bottlenecks in overcoming challenges. Each member of the project team contributes specific skills and experience to ensure that the project runs smoothly and the defined goals are achieved. From the requirements analysis to the release and deployment of the app at seleon, a streamlined process takes place. We work in an agile manner and rely on a prioritised backlog that is developed in close coordination with the customer. This allows the customer to actively shape the development of the app and receive the features with the greatest market value first. Complete increments are created in each iteration, which are tested and ready for release. This makes it possible to test the app at any time and provide feedback.

Integrated cyber security and automation

Cyber security is a key aspect in the development of medical apps. At seleon, we seamlessly integrate cyber security processes into our development process. Specialists complement the project team to ensure that the highest security standards are met so that the development team can fully utilise its core competencies, namely the development of the app. We also rely on modern tools and standardised security functions.

Efficient verification and market observation

At seleon, we rely on a high level of automation for verification in order to shorten testing efforts and release cycles. This ensures that the app meets the highest quality standards and is available quickly. After the release, we also offer the option of continuous market observation and further development of the app. This allows the customer to concentrate on their core business, while seleon takes over the continuous maintenance of the app in coordination with product management.


The development of medical apps is a challenging task that requires a deep understanding of medical requirements, regulatory requirements and state-of-the-art technologies. At seleon, we rely on proven solutions to successfully overcome these challenges. Our in-depth expertise, experienced development teams and a lean development process enable us to develop high-quality medical apps that meet the highest standards.
