Progress, the leading provider of application development and deployment technologies, today announced the availability of Progress® Health Cloud, the first and only enterprise health cloud that fully integrates industry leading frontend, backend 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 the Temkin Group[1]. 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 enables healthcare organizations to quickly deliver winning patient and connected care applications to any device, by offering tools to easily build engaging experiences across any and all interface types. Progress Health Cloud comes equipped 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.

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 chat bot applications. Moreover, they can deliver 5-star app experiences, get to market 75% faster with new applications, cut EHR integration time in half, lower total cost of ownership for applications by 60% and save tens of thousands of dollars per year in compliance costs.

Progress Health Cloud is built on the Progress Kinvey™ serverless cloud platform and includes NativeScript components for easily building cross-platform native mobile experiences with a single codebase. Kinvey was named a Leader with the highest score for current offering among all vendors in the “Forrester Wave™: Enterprise Health Clouds, Q3 2017.”
