I helped build the Hillcrest Animal Hospital Intranet, which both the management & vets use on a daily basis to do their job. The Intranet is one of my largest projects to date which allows the management to manage clients, animals, prescriptions, documents and much much more. It was built on Ruby on Rails 3.
Many external services are also used for much of the functionality throughout the Intranet. Emails are sent through DeliverHQ and there is also a text messaging system built with Twilio. Some areas of the Intranet are updated in real time using Pusher.
