Most healthcare organization’s legacy EHR systems were not designed with mobile in mind. There is no standard in the way data is formatted, stored, and retrieved. And since most systems have been highly customized, integration is difficult: data can’t be made available offline, and performance is sluggish – big problems for those looking to build mobile apps against these systems. As a result, building secure and compliant apps on top of these systems is time consuming and expensive.
Our partnership with Redox addresses these issues directly. Redox solves the EHR integration issues for mobile app developers, and Kinvey’s backend as a service enables developers to enrich EHR data with new information from medical devices, location, and other contextual clues. Now, startups and established healthcare companies alike can quickly and cost-effectively build innovative, high-quality, HIPAA-compliant app cloud experiences against EHR systems.
