Stella Development Services

You Have a Singular Vision. Stella Can Make It Happen.

Stella offers unparalleled healthcare technology and domain expertise to provide organizations with cost-effective, end-to-end software development services to build tailored solutions from the ground up.


Our approach to social determinants really benefits from the pedigree that Stella has, and it's a differentiator because some of our competitors just come from social services and don't come from the hardcore HIT and HIE background.

- Jeffrey Greene, Director of Product Design, NinePatch


Stella are true partners. They are open to working with us and whatever needs we have, and they listen to our questions and concerns. They earn your trust, and when you have that foundation of trust, you know that whatever challenges the project runs into, you're going be able to work through them. That's important.

- Luis Orozco, Chief Technology Officer (CTO), Verato

Quality Assurance and Testing

Quality Assurance and Testing

Quality Assurance and Testing Icon

Quality Assurance and Testing

Stella conducts extensive quality assurance on our software builds and executes two types of testing: functional testing, making sure clients' requirements are met; and non-functional testing, to test those elements that are not included by the customer but that are crucial to a successful build; e.g. the stability and security of the software, load and stress testing, scalability and reliability. Much of the testing is automated, using different frameworks and scripting techniques, complemented by manual testing for scenarios that cannot be automated.
