You’ve heard the spiel before—offshore development, cost savings, blah, blah, blah. But let’s kick out the boredom and infuse a little edge into this conversation, shall we? With the healthcare industry riding the digital wave, the time for relying solely on local talent is about as outdated as a pager in a 5G world. Welcome to the era where offshore development isn’t a ‘nice-to-have’; it’s a ‘you-better-have.’

Enter TurnKey Labs—where your offshore team feels like an in-house dream. We’re not just another vendor slinging lines of code; we’re the aficionados who’ve turned the offshore model on its head. We call it YourShoring. It’s like offshoring, but imagine Bruce Wayne took off the cape, and Batman stepped in to save the day—no headaches, no red tape, and certainly no one-size-fits-all teams.

Now that we’ve shattered the stereotypes, let’s delve into the real deal: how TurnKey Labs reinvented the offshore wheel for MiResource and R1— two healthcare startups that aren’t just scaling but soaring.

MiResource Case: How we Build and Scale their Engineering Team

Imagine the scenario: MiResource, a forward-thinking healthcare startup with a vision to reshape mental health solutions, reaches a pivotal moment. They have the vision—an intuitive platform that bridges healthcare institutions to crucial mental health resources for their patients. The challenge? Building and scaling an engineering team as ambitious as their mission. Add the intricacies of maximizing productivity and the jigsaw of merging onshore and offshore talents. It’s akin to solving a Rubik’s Cube in zero gravity.

 Armed with unparalleled domain expertise, TurnKey Labs joined MiResource’s mission head-on. We assembled not just any team, but a league of extraordinary talent—comprising a Product Manager, Full Stack Tech Lead, UI/UX Designers, Frontend and Backend Engineers, QA experts, a DevOps mastermind, and Support Specialists.

Slaying Dragons and Crushing Goals

Time was ticking, but at TurnKey, we operate on a different chronometer. We filled each critical role faster than one can spell ‘asynchronous,’ ensuring the onboarding process was a seamless transition rather than a bureaucratic hurdle. With the clock now working in their favor, the engineering team achieves weekly deployments, boasting a 7-day lead time from code submission to live release.

The Tech Behind the Triumph

Beneath the surface, this new engineering brigade was no less impressive. Using NodeJS and React as their primary tech stack, they churned out over 70,000 lines of code each year. All this was reinforced by a robust CI/CD pipeline, fortified by hundreds of unit and end-to-end tests.

The Bottom Line: TurnKey’s Impact

The term ‘transformative’ is often overused, but in the case of MiResource, it hits the nail on the head. Our rapid assembly of top-tier engineering talent didn’t just meet expectations—it shattered them, transforming a challenge into one of the company’s most potent strengths. MiResource didn’t just express gratitude; their ongoing success serves as the loudest applause for TurnKey Labs.


Being able to hire high quality engineering talent quickly is a game changer for any early stage startup. TurnKey has made that possible for us and we are proud that it is one of our company’s strengths.

R1 Case: Aggressively Expand its Development Team

Healthcare Automation

Tech Arsenal: PHP, Microservices, React Native, NodeJS

Picture R1—a NASDAQ-featured titan, automating healthcare workflows for massive enterprise health systems in the U.S. Their software is not just a tool; it’s an industry staple, tapped into by millions of patients and clinicians annually. The puzzle? How to catalyze their already meteoric growth against the backdrop of sky-high local hiring costs and the temporal black hole of recruitment.

Did it work? Let’s talk numbers. R1 now orchestrates 51 software releases per year—that’s almost one each week. And this isn’t some rag-tag bunch of devs clocking in and out; we’re talking about a unit with less than a 5% average annual churn over the past three years. That’s not just stability; it’s rock-solid continuity.

They Said It, Not Us

Need more convincing? Here’s R1’s take: “TurnKey’s YourShore model has us feeling like these offshore devs are practically sharing our coffee. Integration is so seamless that geographical distinctions just blur away.” Yep, that’s the YourShore magic, seamlessly weaving the fabric of offshore and onshore talents into one cohesive tapestry.

In a Nutshell: Game-Changing Results

  • Orchestrated a 40-strong full-time team, skilled across pivotal roles.
  • Upped the ante with 51 annual software releases, clocking a steady weekly cadence.
  • Rocked a less-than-5% average annual churn over three years—now that’s commitment.
  • Erased the offshore-onshore divide, earning raving feedback from R1 for fostering an integrated, ‘one-team’ feel.

In summary, with TurnKey, you’re not just mitigating recruitment challenges—you’re embracing an offshore engineering revolution. Call it YourShoring, where ‘your’ vision is executed ‘your’ way, by ‘your’ team. Because, why settle for less when you can have it all, tailor-made?
