Epividian needed to create a HIPAA compliant, streamlined application for collecting, scrubbing and analyzing clinical data from over 400 hospitals and clinic sites in more than 50 U.S. cities. A secure, requirements-driven reporting portal was needed to provide meaningful and actionable insights.
The biggest challenge in creating this application was converting multiple manual processes using various EHR (Electronic Health Record) systems into one cohesive, user-friendly analysis and reporting tool while maintaining HIPAA compliance.
The delaPlex Solution
We created a dynamic, world-class enterprise solution with two distinct portals, OPERA® and CHORUS™. The solution automatically collects data from various sites, encrypts it then transfers it to a secure, HIPAA compliant data center for analysis. We applied an ETL process to standardize the extracted data format while not compromising its integrity. The application’s design required us to accommodate many different ETL packages during the load process and use two-factor authentication (TFA) security process.
How We Did It
The HIPAA compliant delaPlex development team for Epividian conducted an industry requirements analysis to design a client-specific solution. We employed an agile and process-driven methodology with the proper technology stack to deliver a multi-prong data delivery and reporting application for the healthcare company.
