Healthie’s ecosystem includes practice management infrastructure for onboarding, scheduling, client engagement, billing, messaging, and other back-office operations, a telehealth platform with an integrated video-chat portal, and a mobile app for providers and their clients.
The Healthie team turned to us for help with some of their backend tasks: the first thing they needed was to gradually migrate the app’s real-time features from Action Cable to AnyCable Pro to solve Healthie’s challenges.
Initially, Healthie used Action Cable for their real-time feature implementation. However, as their user base started growing, it became increasingly disadvantageous to have the same web service responsible for handling both WebSockets connections and ActionCable channel logic, as well as HTTP traffic on top of that.
Healthie’s real-time features, including video chats, now entirely rely on AnyCable Pro. In the meantime, Evil Martians backend engineers are helping the core team with other backend tasks like switching from GraphQL to Apollo, updating dependencies to their latest versions along with other code improvements.
