HIPAA-Compliant App Development
According to the HIPAA Privacy Rules (U.S. Department of Health & Human Services), individuals’ electronic personal health information should be protected from the unauthorized access. HIPAA violations can reach a maximum penalty of $50,000 per violation, with an annual maximum of $1.5 million, which underlies the importance of building HIPAA compliant software properly.
To make sure that your medical application meets the requirements under HIPAA's technical requirements (Physical and Technical Safeguards), we can integrate the app with a HIPAA compliant data store.
We will split data into private and public in your app's database. The public data will remain in your app’s database and the private data will be moved to the HIPAA-compliant server. Therefore, when authorized requests are coming, the app gets public data from your app's database, private data - from the HIPAA-Compliant Database - and responds with minimal latency.
