AWS Solution

The product requirements were related to functionality, security, scalability, ease of use, troubleshooting, HIPAA compliance, and fast-paced delivery cycles. AWS offers extensive services to development teams that facilitate and address most of the required characteristics. To cover all aspects of company’s business needs, the solution needed to be comprised of two main components: 

  • Mobile App – The main product must foster customer trust and provide a great user experience
  • Web App – The web app needed to cover operational and administrative tasks for physicians and other personnel

AWS capabilities provided the building blocks and were extensively used on the back end, while React Native was used on the front end.

Primary AWS Services: GraphQL, AWS Lambda, Amazon S3, Amazon Aurora, AWS Cognito, Amazon CloudWatch, AWS CloudTrail, Amazon Pinpoint, AWS CloudFormation, Amazon SNS, Amazon SES
