Use of Waterfall, Agile, XP, Scrum software development methodologies in healthcare apps

I’m conducting a survey on the various software development lifecycle methodologies that may be in use for developing healthcare IT applications inhouse or at vendors. Drop me an email about your company’s choice of methodologies. Do you use an Agile methodology like XP or Scrum or are you using a tried and true Waterfall approach? There’s been a great of movement towards Agile methods in the past few years in my non-healthcare clients but many of the medical and clinical apps don’t seem to be developed that way. Even Microsoft reportedly benefitted from using Scrum (an Agile method) for development of complex software like SQL Server 2005.

So, are you using Agile development techniques? If not, what do you use?

Let me know…
