The
Background

Ascension Health is the third-largest health system (based on revenues) and largest non-profit health system in the United States, as well as the world's largest Catholic health system. Ascension Health provides healthcare services at over 1,500 locations and operates hospital groups called Ministries.

A shared mobile app platform was created to give Ministries/Hospitals within Ascension access to an iPhone and Android app. In 2014, a redesign of the app platform was started. The app platform was updated to allow for a single code base to be used for all iOS apps across 25+ Ministries/Hospitals. Sharing code with configuration files managed in a custom CMS allowed the ministries to customize the content of the apps.

The
Challenge
