FeedHenry and Court Square Partner to Deliver First Cloud-Powered HIPAA Compliant Mobile App to Health New England Members

Secure Cloud Environment Gives Mobile App to HNE Members to Access Health-Care Information Quickly and Easily via Smartphones and Tablets

SPRINGFIELD, MA--(Marketwire - Sep 7, 2011) - FeedHenry ( the cloud solutions provider for mobile healthcare applications and Court Square Group (, providers of enterprise business solutions and private clouds for regulated industries, announced a joint collaboration to develop and deliver the first fully HIPAA-compliant mobile app solution, powered by the cloud, to Health New England ( (HNE). With this mobile app, HNE, a managed care organization, majority owned by Baystate Health, will be able to provide its members with a provider directory and member ID application 24/7 from any smartphone or tablet. Members will also be able to trigger directions from their current location, call a provider or access ID cards, which provide policy numbers, member numbers and various co-pay and deductible amounts.

Developed on the FeedHenry mobile application platform, the mobile app integrates securely with HNE member information systems by storing and caching member details and logic in the Court Square private cloud. HIPAA compliance is ensured through FeedHenry's end-to-end security framework from mobile device to internal system endpoints and through the deployment in Court Square's cloud, enabling HNE to have a fully HIPAA-compliant and privately-hosted mobile solution. The partnership combines enterprise-grade mobility and cloud expertise, giving a secure and scalable cloud solution for healthcare and life science organizations to take advantage of the growth in mobile health apps.

"HNE is an innovative and service oriented organization. We believe that this is an opportunity to provide our members with an even higher level of service at their fingertips. We chose the Member ID Card and the Provider Search because these are the highest traffic areas on our website: We anticipate that this will be the first of many mobile applications that we will provide to our customers, members, employers, brokers and providers," said Phil LaCombe, VP of IT, Health New England. "Court Square and FeedHenry worked closely with our team to deliver this app which we believe is the first truly HIPAA compliant cloud-based mhealth app to be deployed across multiple mobile devices from the same code base."

"Court Square has been working with virtual networks and cloud technology in regulated environments for many years and understands the special requirements necessary to comply with HIPAA, FDA and other regulated environments. FeedHenry's fully cloud-based development and server-side architecture meant we could quickly build the app for HNE and fully integrate with backend systems via the Court Square regulated cloud which manages storage, caching, business logic, app management and security," said Court Square CEO Keith Parent.

HNE anticipates release of the mobile app during the third quarter of 2011. The app will be free of charge to any smartphone, tablet or web-enabled mobile user.
