How to Build HIPAA-Compliant Software Application

In 2022, more than 590 healthcare organizations experienced a data breach at an average cost of $4.35 million per event. The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) was signed into law in 1996 and has become the most significant piece of legislation governing patient privacy and the use, transmission, and storage of personal health information (PHI). Healthcare organizations are being targeted daily due to the value of personal health record (PHR) data on the dark web and other illicit marketplaces. In response, insurance providers are increasingly mandating third-party risk management encompassing implementing cybersecurity and data governance best practices. HIPAA

Benefits of Building Progressive Web Apps (PWA) to Deliver Digital Health Applications

A progressive web application (PWA) is a type of web-based software built using technologies like HTML, JavaScript, CSS, and WebAssembly. PWAs are the perfect choice for delivering digital health solutions designed for both medical providers and the patients they serve.  Slowly but surely progressive web apps are replacing native apps. For many healthcare organizations, the shorter development timelines, lower costs, and quicker time to market make building custom PWAs an attractive option instead of releasing native apps designed exclusively for Android, iOS, and other operating systems.  Native applications are built using Objective-C and Swift for iOS and Java for Android.

The U.S. Health Sector Cybersecurity Coordination Center Releases Report on Automation and Hacking in Healthcare

On December 8th, 2022 the U.S Office of Health and Human Services (HHS) Office of Information Security’s Health Sector Cybersecurity Coordination Center (HC3) released a detailed brief titled Automation & Hacking: Potential Impacts on Healthcare. In it, they explore the development of malicious automated software and the significant risk posed by cyber crimes targeting healthcare enterprises. At least 590 provider organizations have reported personal health information (PHI) data breaches to the HHS’s Office for Civil Rights (OCR) since the start of 2022. The total losses impacted 48.6 million individual records—up from just 40 million in 2021. According to the HC3,

Augmented Reality in Healthcare: The Next Great Frontier

Augmented reality (AR) is created by superimposing digital elements over a live image or video.  The term augmented refers to enhancement and thus augmented reality is a way of creating a mixed or extended reality (XR). At the cutting edge of medical innovation, researchers believe extended reality software and hardware solutions are healthcare’s next great frontier.  There are AR, XR, and virtual reality (VR) solutions being developed in every area of medical practice from laboratories to operating theaters, and emergency care centers to remote patient monitoring tools.  Leading medical researchers believe augmented reality software and hardware integrations will transform healthcare

Building a Complete Digital Patient Engagement Ecosystem

In the near future, integrated health ecosystems will deliver person-centered care through advanced medical facilities, smart homes, connected devices, and a distributed medical internet of things (IoT).  Digital patient engagement tools seamlessly link patients, providers, and payers to share personal health information (PHI). Costs drop, patient outcomes improve, and the entire community health system runs much smoother than before.  By providing patients greater access to digital services and empowering more robust data sharing between key healthcare matrix stakeholders, health ecosystems extend human longevity and potential. It’s really not so far off. Today, at the cutting edge of medical possibility, new

Enterprise Risk Management: Managing Privacy, Security, and Organizational Processes to Safeguard Organizational Data

Healthcare leaders have a vested interest in completing strategic investments to safeguard their organization’s data against the growing risk of cybercrime Data breaches, ransomware events, and distributed denial of service (DDoS) attacks against critical healthcare infrastructure have become one of the most critical risk management topics for executive leaders to contend with. The exponential growth of cybercrime in recent years has been nothing short of meteoric — between 2004 and 2021, the fifty largest data breaches resulted in the loss of 17.5 billion patient health information (PHI) records. However, in just the first 6 months of 2022, 337 separate data

Artificial Intelligence-Enabled Automation is Driving the Next Evolution of Healthcare Service Delivery

Proactive Operational Decision-Making Fueled by Data-Driven Analytic Insights Delivered in Real-Time is Fueling Competitive Advantage for Healthcare Enterprises In recent years, it’s come to light that America’s healthcare industry is suffering under some rather significant inefficiencies of scale. Despite spending as much as $4.1 trillion on healthcare in 2020, many metrics suggest Americans do not receive a better quality of care when compared to many other industrial nations. Vast sums of money are being spent on healthcare but persistent questions remain about whether those investments are truly driving the patient-centrism and value-based care treatment modalities that have become such potent

How Hospital Software is Changing the Healthcare Industry

Highlights: Hospitals currently contend with personnel shortages, financial challenges, and proper patient safety. Digital transformation for hospitals is challenging due to the myriad stakeholders involved, reluctance to move on from antiquated systems, and the perceived resource drain for onboarding. Custom software offers short- and long-term solutions for hospitals by integrating technology, streamlining administrative processes, and making communication and file sharing between stakeholders easier. Antiquated processes like paper based systems and reliance on staff to execute recurring tasks that can be executed by AI and automation, prevents the healthcare industry from improving worldwide. The complexities of healthcare often prevent medical professionals
