There is no way to beat around the bush. From the Hippocratic Oath to Asimov’s three laws, our work in Healthtech revolves around the central belief that all people, regardless of the color of their skin, deserve the same rights, privileges, and care. Unfortunately, we see that this is not the case today. Choice by choice, and step by step we will get there. At Vicert, we operate with 0 tolerance for discrimination of any kind and we pride ourselves for practices around equality and non bias. We live our truth. We stand in solidarity with our Black colleagues and commit to use our actions to aid in the eradication of racism. #blacklivesmatter , #SoftwareCuresTheWorld
Faced with the current pandemic, and following recommendations from the WHO and government alike, many organizations suddenly had to work from home. Many teams, individuals, and processes have had to adapt; what is reassuring is that the majority of them were able to do so. We understand the challenges this situation presents, so in order to help others best make the transition, we have decided to repackage our internal HIPAA overview document for everyone to reassess their setup and audit their overall compliance.
2020 has brought new updates to HIPAA rules and standards, although some have already wavered , we…
That one event you know you can’t miss, that you know will overwhelm you, and for which you are mentally preparing? It’s HIMSS time again! Preparing for HIMSS is always a big deal which is why our timeline is segmented into four elements:
We will update as HIMSS approaches, so send us hints, links, or invites and keep a lookout for daily additions!
While you are browsing the events, we suggest listening to the HIMSS official soundtrack (we love this so bravo to for creating this)!
When talking about workflow automation, companies and business people usually think about human task management and task lists. And that makes sense since workflow engines are a great tool for that. However, workflow automation is actually much more. Modern workflow engines are lightweight and can operate high volumes at low latency. This makes them applicable for every problem that requires a state machine, whether the main driver of the requirement at hand is business or IT. …
For an intro we suggest to brush up on some reading from our part 1:
Tuning our thinking to the granularity of resources defined in FHIR wasn’t enough. Very soon we encountered our first challenge — making them work together. This is a very important notion in FHIR since the standard considers resource combination as an integral tool in representing healthcare use-cases.
Searching through extensive documentation we identified mechanisms in place providing this function:
Every resource in FHIR has a unique identity and as such a unique URL. Utilizing the reference data…
When a client asked for a Redox Data Chateau service adapter, a lot of new keywords were thrown my way.
We had to look into every detail of “Redox”, “FHIR format”, “Data Models”, “resources” and “Clinical Summary” concepts in order to quickly create a bigger picture where everything needed for our project made sense.
The gist of our first working theory was as follows:
We would receive a FHIR standard conformant request, translate it to a Redox form of request, receive a response from Redox and then translate it back to a FHIR response.
It sounded simple enough and we…
In the healthcare space, there are companies that function as intermediaries that forward claims information from healthcare providers to insurance payers, also known as clearinghouses.
Likewise, if we want to exchange messages between two distributed software components, we need a mediator. This mediator is known as the message broker. It receives incoming messages from a sender and sends them to a receiver. This way the sender and receiver can be totally decoupled.
A message broker acts as an intermediary platform in communication between two applications.
It provides a way for exchanging messages from sending to receiving points. Messaging enables distributed…
React Native has…
When we talk about react native android part, first we need to make sure we have compileSdkVersion 28 in android/build.gradle file.Then in android/gradle.properties we need to add these two lines of code :
After this, we need to go to android studio and pick
Refactor > Migrate to AndroidX.
This will convert your app to androidX but we are currently talking about React Native and that means that we have multiple third-party libraries that also needs to be updated. Jetifier is the answer.
After refactoring with the android studio, you should install jetifier.
1. npm install -save-dev jetifier 2. …
It has been a year already since our last “Health in the Cloud” event we organized together with our partners from IBM Bluemix and Watson. Since then, the statistics of healthcare in the cloud have improved exponentially — more and more providers are migrating to the cloud storage and more and more Cloud vendors are claiming their HIPAA and HITECH compliance, promising security and savings.
