Kony, Inc., the leading enterprise mobility company, has announced that the Kony Multi-Channel Experience Cloud has been named HIPAA (Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act) compliant by an independent third-party, BrightLine. This verification states that Kony’s cloud-based solutions have the necessary administrative, physical and technical safeguards in place to ensure that mobile applications developed and deployed on its platform provide the safety and security of customer’s protected health information (PHI).
Security is a primary concern for healthcare organizations when it comes to customers’ personal information accessible via mobile devices today. Protecting this end user data on healthcare applications is of the utmost importance. While Kony has always prioritized the accessibility of critical health-related content via multi-channel applications, its HIPAA compliant solution guarantees cloud security as well.
“Healthcare-related companies make up a significant amount of our customer base. As such, this verification is a tremendous accomplishment for Kony,” said Sriram Ramanathan, CTO at Kony. “Our customers understandably have security concerns when it comes to developing mobile applications with data sensitivity, and we continually hear these same apprehensions about cloud-based development. Attaining HIPAA compliance is great validation for mobile application development in the cloud.”
Kony recently released the Kony Multi-Channel Experience Cloud, which is its cloud-based platform that is reinventing the software development lifecycle (SDLC) and is enabling organizations to deploy applications across any digital channel from a single code base. This allows healthcare organizations to keep pace with today’s constantly changing mobile technology and deliver superior user-first experiences with significantly lower total cost of ownership (TCO) and faster time-to-market.
With the Kony Multi-Channel Experience Cloud, healthcare providers can design and develop multi-channel applications to standardize and automate healthcare data, streamline communications and collaboration at hospitals between patients, doctors and nurses. Kony Healthcare provides ready-to-run applications for healthcare payers that enable users to shop for new plans, manage their existing plans and benefits, refill prescriptions, research providers and more from any phone, tablet or desktop.
