Medical Apps

Medical Apps

Working with some of the world’s largest pharmaceutical companies, and in partnership with leading medical writing agencies, we develop native apps that help sales reps learn about their products with an engaging and interactive experience.  Our apps provide information and training about disease state, clinical trials, competitor knowledge and the selling process.

Our apps will link to your in-house LMS to track your reps learning path, producing reports based on user, country or module. To help the learning experiance there are interactive games, video, audio and high quality artwork so that our apps make learning an interesting and rewarding activity. Our apps can be used for Foundation or Refresher training. The foundation training is usually linear in style and users have to achieve a pre-set passmark to advance, and with the Refresher training there is an initial assessment which ranks the sections by priority.

We know the biotech industry:

  • We can work to short deadlines if required
  • We know the medical and legal approval processes
  • We align with your exacting editorial personnel
  • We know about last minute label and content changes
  • We’re proactive about liaising with internal IT departments.

The result of our experience are apps that use a range of different styles and interactivity to present disease, treatment, and selling skills in a way that’s visually easy to understand, and optimized for learning.

We have successfully completed digital projects for Novartis, Roche, Pfizer, Genentech, J&J, Shire, AstraZeneca, the European Society of Cardiology… and more.

p.s. Some of our work is done through external medical writing and communication agencies, so if you may not want to jump through new-supplier hoops… then chances are we’ll have a partner that will already be an approved supplier.

SCORM Training

SCORM Training

SCORM Training

We design and build compliant, Articulate Storyline and HTML-based training courses using medical content provided to us from medical agencies, turning the content into SCORM compliant courses. All courses can fit multiple browsers and devices, including mobile phones, iPads and desktop computers.

All training modules we produce can be translated using our unique translation and localization tool, allowing us to deploy the modules we produce in any country and language required. We’re used to working to deadlines and have experience in dealing with aspects of projects such as legal and industry specific approval, meaning we can work to any timescale provided for a course.

We have worked with leading pharmaceutical companies and medical agencies to produce SCORM training modules that teach users about areas such as Cardiovascular, Hemophilia and Multiple Sclerosis. As the user progresses through each module they are tested on the information they have learned. The results of these tests are recorded and can be sent to the LMS.

Our services include:

  • Full design service from overall design concept to individual page design
  • Articulate Storyline professionals
  • HTML5 programming
  • Video editing
  • Image editing
  • Project management
  • Help with developing interactivity
  • Help with implementation
  • Localization and translation.

Using eye catching design with consistent user oriented features. Our in-house designed and programmed SCORM courses are produced at a reasonable cost to give agencies and pharma companies a great ROI.

Custom Saba iPad App

Custom Saba iPad App

Our clients always want better than the standard, in this case it means a customised replacement Saba app for iPad, connecting to Saba Enterprise LMS.

One of the main problems facing our client was their field forces of thousands of global users wanting better access to their learning. They needed an easy way to be able to interact with Saba LMS. They had distributed their field force iPads, but wanted a more custom experience for their users than the default Saba Offline Player App. To meet compliance hurdles they also needed SSO sign-off within the app, something the Saba standard player did not have.

Signature Digital built a fully functional Saba offline player for iPad that connected using SSO to the Saba hosted installation, customising the interface so that the user experience was second to none. It downloaded offerings/courses/repositories, tracked the user through SCORM & completion and then sync’ed back statistics to the Saba API. We also built additional functionality that the Saba standard app doesn’t include.


  • Search and register for courses by using audience ID
  • User is not restricted to assigned courses
  • View courses by category on the iPad
  • Course sign-off for R&U
  • OKTA integration
  • Users see a customised dashboard according to audience ID & language

Our app is visually engaging, easy to use and puts the training in the employee’s hands – just when they need it.  The app can also include other training items, the type that are really useful but often get put on a SharePoint somewhere and forgotten about. So the app becomes a place you want to look, it’s useful to your job!

Expansions planned include adding gamification, leaderboards, spaced learning, non-course specific resources, course feedback mechanisms and more.
