Communication Service Provider (CSP) mobileStorm recently launched the first ever HIPAA-compliant, cloud-based mHealth communication platform at the WLSA Convergence Summit in San Diego, along with announcing Humana as a beta client for the new offering.

Dubbed mobileStorm for Healthcare, the new platform allows the HIPAA-compliant transmission of PHI (Protected Health Information) to members and patients via mobile devices and smart phones.  Put simply, the platform can “mobile enable” any existing system within a healthcare organization allowing any developer or IT department to integrate with the mobileStorm for Healthcare API.

These APIs can power secure communication between systems such as EHR, EMR, and disease/appointment management tools.  The API automates the delivery of  “AppMail messages” which utilize AES-256 encryption.  AppMail can deliver individual health notifications — presentable in HTML or plain text —  in a  “one-to-one” or “one-to-many” fashion.  In addition, the API delivers real-time analytics on important metrics such as who has read a message and for how long.  AppMail is delivered to a secure inbox that can quickly be created using the company’s SDK.

In addition to AppMail, mobileStorm’s new API also enables the transmission of Push Notifications and SMS messages in order to utilize cross-channel communication strategies that drive higher response rates.  mobileStorm for Healthcare takes a member-centric approach by allowing people to log into any web-connected device containing the organization’s mobile app or mobile site and securely access their inboxes and PHI messages.  For those without a mobile app or site, mobileStorm offers custom solutions as well.

“We have been providing communication solutions for over 11 years and in the healthcare vertical for the last three years. We firmly believe that mHealth technology represents the most important social, cultural, and business impact that mobile technology has produced to date,” said Jared Reitzin, Founder & CEO of mobileStorm. “As a Communication Service Provider (CSP), we have worked with thousands of clients in hundreds of different industries which has given us a unique perspective of how mobile affects an individual’s behavior. All of us are patients as well as members, so it’s exciting to see the healthcare industry realize the massive impact that mobile can have on our behavior.”

To coincide with the launch of the company’s new mHealth platform, it was announced that Humana has agreed to become a Beta customer in order to “strengthen their efforts to help Humana members achieve lifelong well-being.”  Christopher Nicholson, Humana’s director of strategic communications said “Humana is excited about the messaging capabilities that the secure mobile messaging center will bring us.  This partnership will allow us to deliver on multi-channel goals where we have not had a solution in the past. The ability to reach members ‘where they are’ with relevant, personalized and proactive communications is critically important.  mobileStorm is a wonderful mHealth vendor who truly wants to help us succeed.”

Reitzin continues, “mobileStorm for Healthcare represents the culmination of our experience, and we are confident that it is the most advanced HIPAA-compliant mobile platform available. Our company’s mission is to help our clients communicate with as much relevancy as possible, and with this new offering, I believe we are one step closer to completing our mission.”
