Create healthcare apps to improve patient engagement and patient outcomes

 

Build your healthcare apps on our HI cloud platform

HI cloud is the world's first non-profit cloud platform for healthcare. It is designed to be a secure, connected, scalable, and interoperable cloud platform with business operation services for billing and subscription management inbuilt.​

Technology is changing every industry in significant ways. No one can dispute technology’s ability to enable us all to live longer, healthier lives. From surgical robots to “smart hospitals,” the digital transformation is revolutionizing patient care in new and exciting ways. That’s not all. National health expenditures in the United States accounted for $3.2 trillion in 2015—nearly 18% of the country’s total GDP. It’s predicted that the digital revolution can save $300 billion in spending in the sector, especially in the area of chronic diseases. Clearly there is value—human and financial—in bringing new technology to the health care market.

If you’re a software developer or company building a new healthcare app, this rate of growth creates an inspiring, albeit daunting, environment in which to launch your product. What if you had a business partner to help you manage infrastructure, compliance, and growth, letting you focus entirely on building the best possible solution for your users?

HI’s new cloud platform for healthcare, can be that partner. It is designed to be a secure, connected, scalable, and interoperable cloud platform and accompanying business operation services for billing and subscription management, the HI Cloud will offer an unprecedented array of partnership opportunities to easily expand the universe of potential customers and take advantage of HI’s global non-profit reach.
