With its intuitive point-and-click application builder, Caspio has been widely adopted across many industries for empowering business users to create custom cloud applications without any coding. Now with Caspio HIPAA Enterprise, the healthcare industry can leverage cloud-based applications to improve efficiencies and streamline processes in practice management, patient engagement, and health information management - all within a secure and compliant environment. Popular application examples include online patient portals, health insurance exchanges, clinical trial databases, and knowledge sharing.

"The healthcare market presents a tremendous challenge to IT departments and application developers who must ensure their solutions are fully compliant with the industry's strict regulatory requirements," says Frank Zamani, Caspio Founder and CEO. "Caspio's new HIPAA-compliant platform opens a world of possibilities for healthcare practitioners, IT professionals, line-of-business managers, developers, and consultants. With Caspio HIPAA Enterprise, compliance is no longer an obstacle; and the rapid development platform allows our customers and partners to expand their businesses by quickly creating custom healthcare applications to their exact specifications."

Florida Healthcare Plus, a Health Maintenance Organization (HMO) that provides patient care services for customers across the state of Florida, has automated their entire Medicare and Medicaid enrollment process using applications developed on Caspio's HIPAA-compliant platform.

"We were able to become fully-operational in the first phase of our HIPAA compliant application in two weeks," said Robert Rieger, COO of Florida Healthcare Plus. "The team has improved its results and we are looking forward to the implementation of the next phase. The transition to our new platform has been easy, efficient and, most importantly, in full compliance."

"The application and process redesign improved the productivity of my team by over 150%, while consistently meeting our 100% compliance target during a high-volume demand period," said Claudia Lopez, Director of Enrollment at Florida Healthcare Plus.

To deliver HIPAA compliance, Caspio upgraded its popular Platform-as-a-Service offering with specific technology, policies and procedures that keep electronic protected health information (PHI) in compliance with regulations. In addition to the robust features and capabilities that made the Caspio platform the standard in rapid database application development, Caspio HIPAA Enterprise offers the following additional features and safeguards.
