At DRS Software, we are always striving to be at the forefront of innovation, pushing the boundaries of technology to create solutions that transform industries. Today, we are excited to share a monumental step in our journey: a collaborative project with a leading enterprise-scale healthcare provider to bring their existing C++ desktop application to the Web, using Cheerp and WebAssembly (WASM). This ambitious initiative will bring healthcare services to the web, providing accessibility, scalability, and cutting-edge technology to a vast user base.

Why the Transition to the Web?


The digital landscape is evolving rapidly, and the healthcare industry is no exception. Traditionally, many healthcare providers have relied on C++ desktop applications for their systems. However, these applications come with limitations such as platform dependence, reduced accessibility, and increased maintenance costs. The move to web-based applications offers numerous advantages, including:

  • Accessibility: A web-based application can be accessed from any device with a web browser, making it more convenient for both patients and healthcare professionals.
  • Scalability: As healthcare providers grow, they need solutions that can scale to meet increased demand. Web applications are highly adaptable and can accommodate growth seamlessly.
  • Cost: Web applications can reduce maintenance costs and minimize the need for user-specific installations, updates, and troubleshooting.

Collaborating with the Healthcare Giant


The collaborative project with our healthcare partner is a testament to their forward-thinking approach and our expertise in modernizing software solutions. We’ve embarked on a journey to transform their legacy C++ desktop application into a cutting-edge web application. Here’s how we’re making it happen:

  • Cheerp: Cheerp is a powerful tool for converting C++ code into JavaScript, enabling the migration of C++ applications to the web. It offers both automatic and manual conversion options, ensuring that the final product retains its functionality and performance.
  • WebAssembly (WASM): WebAssembly is a game-changer for web applications, allowing them to run at near-native speed in the browser. By integrating WASM, we can enhance the performance of the healthcare application and offer users a seamless experience.

Key Benefits of this Collaboration

  • Efficiency and Cost Savings: The web-based application will streamline administrative processes, reduce manual tasks, and minimize overhead costs, leading to substantial savings for the healthcare provider.
  • Enhanced Data Security: With modern web technologies, we can implement robust security measures to protect patient data and ensure compliance with healthcare regulations.
  • Future-Proofing: Web applications are inherently more adaptable to future technologies and trends, ensuring that the healthcare provider remains competitive and relevant in the ever-evolving healthcare industry.

Our collaborative project with an enterprise-scale healthcare provider marks a significant milestone in our journey at DRS Software. We are proud to be part of this transformation, bringing innovation, accessibility, and cost-effective solutions to the healthcare industry.

This venture exemplifies our commitment to leveraging the power of WebAssembly to create web applications that can revolutionize traditional desktop software, making it more accessible and efficient for all users. As the healthcare industry continues to evolve, we are dedicated to staying at the forefront of technological advancements and providing solutions that shape the future of healthcare.

Stay tuned for more updates on this exciting project and our ongoing commitment to delivering cutting-edge software solutions that make a real difference. Together with our healthcare partner, we are paving the way for a more connected and efficient healthcare ecosystem.
