PALO ALTO, Calif. – HealthTap recently launched HealthTap Cloud, a development platform for health developers to build applications more efficiently.
“HealthTap Cloud promises developers instant interoperability, turnkey secure and private infrastructure, and easy access to doctor knowledge and population data,” said Greg Badros, PhD, an investor in Health Tap, in a statement.
HealthTap Cloud is powered by HOPES, an operating system that connects the continuum of care to each person’s unique personal health record.
Software development kits and application programming interfaces are also available through the platform, helping developers build highly personalized iOS and Android apps.
“The barrier to entry for building smart health applications is dramatically lowered by HealthTap Cloud,” said Badros. “Opening our technology platform to the best developers through an application process enables them to access key modules of the HealthTap Cloud and further propels HealthTap’s mission of bringing affordable, high quality health care to billions of people every day.”
HealthTap also announced a collaboration with Blockchain S.A. to create a new health care blockchain—a foundational infrastructure for managing federated, trusted access to medical records securely between all parties in the private network.
“Now, HealthTap and Blockchain are taking a concrete and significant step toward leveraging this concept to solve a longstanding issue in health care—trusted, secure access to medical records for all,” said Blockchain CEO Peter Smith in a statement.
