Caspio Now Providing HIPAA-Compliant Custom App Development Services

After the success of its HIPAA Enterprise Platform, Caspio has revealed it will now be offering HIPAA Compliant Professional Services for App Development,

Caspio, a major cloud platform provider, offers its platform-as-a-service to businesses and groups in the public and private sector – allowing them to develop powerful web and mobile applications which increase efficiency, usability and integration between colleagues and clients.

Its cloud platform has been used by many businesses including some of the biggest names in retail, insurance, manufacturing, logistics and online media, as well as by numerous non-profit organizations, educational establishments and government bodies.

The company’s platform allows web and mobile applications to be set up quickly to streamline administrative processes, provide a greater level of automation and secure data management. Applications can be put in place to track inventory, schedule resources, log registrations and training, create online customer portals, automate billing processes and for knowledge and document storage and management.

According to the Privacy and Security Rules of the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act, all healthcare suppliers, health plans, their business associates and other covered-bodies, must put in place the appropriate administrative, physical and technical safeguards to ensure the health information of patients is properly protected.

Healthcare suppliers looking to take advantage of the opportunities possible with the cloud must ensure the provider of the service also complies with HIPAA-regulations, and agrees to adhere to the same rules and regulations covering electronic Protected Health Information (ePHI).

Caspio was one of the first cloud providers to provide its platform-as-a-service in a HIPAA-compliant version. Caspio HIPAA Enterprise has enabled healthcare providers and health plans – and their business associates – to develop their own custom applications to increase efficiency, cut costs and raise the standard of patient care.

Large healthcare providers with the resources to use in-house cloud developers have been able to use the Caspio platform to develop a wide variety of mobile and cloud-based applications. Applications have been used to schedule and monitor clinical trials, establish online patient portals, manage health insurance exchanges, track medical devices and monitor training and certification.

Smaller organizations, or those without the resources to develop their own applications, are now being offered a fully outsourced custom app development service. Caspio’s team of consultants can translate an organization’s requirements into efficient, easy to use and simple to manage mobile applications while its dedicated project managers, developers and partners manage the entire project managment process.

In full compliance with HIPAA, Caspio maintains BAAs with all vendors in addition to providing a BAA to all customers and clients. Data is completely encrypted both in transit and storage, the system maintains a complete audit trail with access logs stored in a separate environment, upgrades and patches are carried automatically and the entire infrastructure is certified as HIPAA compliant.

Frank Zamani, founder and CEO of Caspio said: “The healthcare industry is undergoing sweeping changes with rising demand for custom HIPAA-compliant process automation and data management applications. Now, whether through internal application development on Caspio’s rapid development platform, or through Caspio’s consulting services, healthcare organizations can transform their services, automate manual processes, and bring their data management practices into full compliance quickly and cost efficiently.”
