Kinvey Launching HIPAA Compliant Mobile Backend as a Service on Google Cloud Platform

Kinvey Launching HIPAA Compliant Mobile Backend as a Service on Google Cloud PlatformmHealthWatch learned Monday that Kinvey, a leading enterprise mobile Backend as a Service (mBaaS), is launching a HIPAA compliant mBaaS on Google Cloud Platform.

The service delivers what the company calls a “very affordable and timely solution” as the demand for mobile health solutions is dramatically increasing and the U.S. Federal Government is gearing up for the next phase of HIPAA compliance audits in the second quarter of 2016.

The Kinvey crew says that Healthcare’s demand for cloud-based mobile solutions is driven by three major factors:

1. Dramatic increase in mobile app usage by patients, physicians and consumers
2. Intense pressure for healthcare organizations to reduce costs while improving outcomes
3. Increased HIPAA regulatory oversight and fines

Kinvey’s HIPAA Compliant mBaaS addresses all three aspects of this perfect storm. It provides healthcare providers, payers and pharmaceutical and life sciences companies with a secure, compliant and complete platform for all of their mobile and responsive web apps. Given that it’s delivered as a fully-managed service, running on Google Cloud Platform, customers can focus on delivering their apps instead of building, managing, securing, and patching infrastructure – significantly reducing IT CAPEX and OPEX costs and dramatically reducing app time to market.

“Digital health transformation has resulted in the rise of new digital connected health experiences being created for patients and care providers. Kinvey’s platform has helped us deliver innovative apps and programs for our pharma, physician, and pharmacy clients to engage their customers, collect validated outcomes and other health data, and combine it with cognitive analytics to significantly improve the quality of personalized care without increased burden to HCP or patient,” says Marc Porter, managing director of IOMEDIA. “Kinvey’s integration with Google Cloud Platform to deliver a HIPAA-compliant mobility platform allows us to deliver these innovative apps quickly, with no IT overhead.”
