MD, Healthcare IT Consultant

What type of software is the most popular among healthcare providers?

Each provider tailors the healthcare IT infrastructure according to the specific needs of their practice, care routines, patient needs, etc. Based on my experience, EHR became a must-have both among inpatient and outpatient healthcare providers. It serves as a virtual hub for multiple internal operations: from care planning to billing and insurance verification. The other common apps for hospitals and outpatient clinics are practice management solutions, telemedicine apps, and medical imaging software.

How ScienceSoft Ensures HIPAA Compliance?

When ScienceSoft works on a healthcare software project, we engage our in-house regulatory consultants and integrate HIPAA compliance into all development stages to minimize the risk of data breaches.

We sign a Business Associate Agreement with each customer to ensure we follow HIPAA guidelines. During the development, we implement role-based access management, multi-factor authentication, and data encryption in transit and at rest and thoroughly document the security practices for future audits. We also develop a risk mitigation plan for medical software usage and review it throughout the project.
