The healthcare industry deals with a lot of sensitive data, so mHealth apps must comply with security and privacy requirements defined by HIPAA data protection laws. Failure to adhere to HIPAA guidelines result in PHI breaches that affect a healthcare organization’s credibility. They also have to face heavy penalties for a data breach that compromises patient information.
We can assist healthcare companies to create and design HIPAA and HL7 compliant software and applications, which will ensure adherence to all the hospital compliance guidelines and also update the compliance practices based on any change in regulation. These apps and software help clinics and healthcare providers of any size to avoid any fees incurred due to non-adherence of compliance guidelines and also reduce the costs and manpower that is required to maintain the compliance program.
Regulatory healthcare compliance applications:
Healthcare interoperability is of utmost importance to provide improved and better care to patients. Interoperability apps can enable systems to interact with each other and provide access to clinical patient information in real-time. They also enable healthcare systems to diagnose patients from hospitals, their homes, etc. hence, improving its quality and efficacy.
Interoperability in healthcare improves patient care in multiple ways. With a seamless exchange of health data, interoperability increases the quality of care, leading to more cost savings and efficient workflows. Medical error deaths can also be prevented by sharing data across systems and applications, not just within an organization, but also across organizations.
We can design and customize these applications to delineate the set-up and configuration of data elements to enable communication between different clinical systems. These apps can:
Artificial Intelligence is a technique through which machines simulate human intelligence processes such as learning, reasoning, and self-correction. AI-driven apps can contribute to many areas of healthcare, including mental health, clinical decision support, coding, and communication. Such mHealth apps will provide patients and providers with a more efficient and cost-effective ecosystem that will considerably improve long-term outcomes.
