The ability for healthcare providers to monitor patients while collecting data in real time is extremely powerful.
Enabling healthcare providers (Hospital Systems, Pharmaceutical, Biotechnology, Research Organizations, Payers) to bring their mobile app ideas to market in a third of the time at roughly a third of the cost is expedient, efficient and practical.
However, cost prohibits most organizations from creating the infrastructure to support a mobile app on the backend. The healthcare industry also has very specific regulatory requirements regarding the handling of health information.
Our partner complies with all regulations of the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA). They have also signed the Business Associate Agreement (BAA), essentially assuming liability for cyber breaches — something that most technology providers are unwilling to do. In addition, our partner has certification from the Health Information Trust Alliance (HITRUST), which incorporates the
healthcare compliance requirements PCI, HIPAA, ISO 27001/27002, Control Objectives for Information and Related Technology (COBIT) and the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST). They also comply with the regulatory requirements of Title 20 CFR 11 regarding their handling of electronic health records.
By removing challenges such as compliance, security and interoperability, innovators across Healthcare, Pharmaceuticals, and Biotechnology can leverage cloud platforms to develop applications that bring together data and help the healthcare sector to truly focus on improving the patient experience, reducing re-admissions, and creating better population health outcomes.
