In a recent release, Progress, a provider of application development and deployment technologies, announced the availability of its new Progress Health Cloud, an enterprise health cloud designed to fully integrate front end, back end and data connectivity technologies into a serverless and HIPAA-compliant platform for quickly creating apps to drive patient engagement and better healthcare outcomes.

Today, the healthcare industry rates among the lowest of all industries in customer experience scores, according to research from the Temkin Group. With the advancements in digital business, healthcare providers, insurance payers, pharmaceutical companies and medical device companies need to act like other consumer-facing businesses, delivering high quality, engaging digital experiences that will improve patient care and drive better healthcare outcomes.

Progress Health Cloud is designed to enable healthcare organizations to quickly deliver winning patient and connected care applications to any device, the company said, by offering tools to ease the building of engaging experiences across any UI. Progress Health Cloud comes with pre-packaged healthcare application templates, a flexible, scalable and HIPAA-compliant serverless cloud platform and pre-packaged integrations with EHRs and other healthcare data sources.

"When we set out to create the digital experience for our members, we knew it had to be incredibly engaging, easy to use and seamless across mobile and web experiences - and it had to support our need to get to market quickly, which is why we selected Kinvey," said Pam Hudson, CIO, BayHealth Development. "With the release of Progress Health Cloud, Progress has taken the best of the Kinvey platform and layered it with the healthcare-specific expertise required for our industry. It is by far the most robust, relevant offering available today."

With Progress Health Cloud, healthcare organizations are now in a position to deliver unified digital health experiences in the form of mobile, tablet, wearable, web and chatbot applications. Moreover, they can deliver 5-star app experiences, get to market 75 percent faster with new applications, cut EHR integration time in half, lower total cost of ownership for applications by 60 percent and save tens of thousands of dollars per year in compliance costs.

"Patient experience and healthcare outcomes are the top priorities for healthcare organizations today," said Yogesh Gupta, CEO, Progress. "With Progress Health Cloud, we are offering something truly unique to the market that is enabling our customers to deliver the best application experiences with a fraction of the time and effort of other solutions."
