Data service flow

HIPAA and PHI considerations

Any project that entails the handling of protected health information (PHI) requires extra steps to carefully plan and create solution architecture that’s HIPAA-compliant.

Our team had to carefully consider security and privacy issues relating to the tools, services, and configurations of Congruity’s platform. Once both teams aligned on the SA, the build portion went very quickly.

Approach

Research + discovery

  • Analyzed the data, its sources, permission requirements, etc.
  • Evaluated best-suited analytic platforms, connectors, and data stores

Alignment + prioritization

  • Presented SA recommendations along with high-level build estimates
  • Performed an approval & selection process of platform tools
  • Prioritized build activities for remainder of phase

Development + delivery

  • Configured and developed analytics platform foundation
