Why MedStack?

MedStack empowers hospitals and other healthcare enterprises to onboard more digital innovations faster, by helping application developers meet privacy, security expectations up front, before IT diligence even starts.

Most healthcare innovations never make it to the providers and patients that need them, because enterprise data security and privacy diligences are complex and expensive for both developers and healthcare execs. MedStack supports high standards of security and privacy management, but speeds diligence through standardization of architecture and regulation-mapped policies.

Without MedStack
Developers face overshot schedules and exceeded budgets due to architecture and legal work for compliance and interoperability.
VS
With MedStack
Developers can focus on the clinical aspects of their application and deliver better patient value via their own innovations in user experience, workflow and analytics.
