Palo Alto, California —Connecting doctors and patients using technology is no easy task. There are an abundant amount of regulations that must be followed in order to meet HIPAA’s communication and data security standards. But a company in Palo Alto, California is looking to rethink how we transfer data at the app level.
Meet Medable, a HIPAA compliant platform for building mobile apps. Medable is looking to become an industry standard across consumer healthcare apps as well as integrate themselves into connected medical devices. It’s estimated that 80% of a health app’s development cost is from making it meet security guidelines. Medable aims to standardize and reduce this cost allowing developers to focus on their content instead of data security.
The platform provides an SDK (software development kit) and an API (application programming interface) to provide HIPAA compliant data transfers for app developers. It also uses the HL7 clinical data format so it can connect with many EHRs, protecting health information by encrypting the data on the device and in transit. Additionally, Medable will anonymize data for clinical data reporting and population health.
As healthcare technology continues to evolve, this platform aims to standardize the process of data security using the device that we already have… our smartphones.
