Embarcadero Technologies, Inc. announced that Hitachi Medical Computer Systems, Inc. used Delphi XE4 to develop a multi-device version of its Delta View dental support system.
In a release, the Company noted that the app can now be used on both iPad and Windows.
Delta View is a software system that enables a dentist to receive "informed consent" by presenting medical information to a patient. Delta View is a Presentation Image Viewer used by dentists to display X-ray images. The Windows version was adopted by more than 400 dental clinics within six months of its release in 2012. The iPad version was developed in response to dentists who also wanted to use the app on tablets. Delphi XE4, which can be used for iOS app development, enabled the release of the iPad version in a short amount of time.
Delphi XE4 has now been adopted by Hitachi Medical Computer Systems' dental solutions development unit.
"The majority of dental treatment takes place chairside," said Noriaki Arizumi, manager of the dentistry development department, Development Headquarters, Hitachi Medical Computer Systems, Inc. "For this reason, many dentists requested a tablet version of the app so that they could communicate with patients in ways that were easier for them to understand. The use of Delphi XE4 allowed us to release the iPad version in an extremely short amount of time. It was also significant that we were able to use the same framework and easily unify the appearance with the already-released Windows version."
"There is an increase in requests, not just from the medical field but also from a wide range of industries, to make Windows applications available on tablets," said Michael Swindell, senior vice president of products and strategy at Embarcadero. "By using Delphi XE4, developers can build multi-device, true native apps from a single codebase. This makes possible extensions for tablets that combine both productivity and performance. Hitachi Medical Computer Systems' Delta View serves as a great example to developers that multi-device app development is truly viable and a successful model to embrace."
Delta View is a dental support system that allows real-time information sharing with patients.
