Austin Heart Continuing Medical Education



Austin Heart is the largest provider of cardiology services in Central Texas. The Austin Heart Education Department in Austin was in need of an online Continuing Medical Education System, one of the only cardiology CME systems in Texas. Their needs included an all-inclusive system for recording presentations, uploading the presentations to the newly designed website, and accepting credit cards for payment upon viewing the CME online presentations.




Solutions DeBellas was able to develop the perfect system for Austin Heart's needs, plus more! We developed a complete back-end database-driven application that allows Austin Heart employees to update their website with presentations, tests, and content in their own offices, with no need to hire a programmer. Solutions DeBellas also redesigned the look of the site, adding elements of Flash MX animation, as well as making it warmer and more inviting for its users.  The application was programmed in Java/JSP with data stored in MySQL, and was hosted on JRun application server.
