50 Things Tegria’s Custom Development and Integrations Team Can Do for You
By Anders Brown, Managing Director, Tegria
Asking what our custom development and integrations team does is like asking what a violin does. You can describe its strings and how they vibrate, but audiences don’t care about that part. You could say the violin is used to play music, but that just begs the question—what music, specifically?
Or you could pick up the violin and play a few songs. If you hear enough songs, you start to understand what a violin does without having to talk about all that other stuff.
So, what does our custom development and integrations team do? Here are some songs we’d be happy to play for you:

Finally design, create, and maintain that new patient-facing website Marketing has been talking about for years.
