HealthTap Cloud launches to help developers create better health apps
HealthTap Cloud is powered by HOPES, the world’s first Health Operating System, which connects the entire continuum of care to each person’s unique Personal Health Record (PHR). Application Programming Interfaces (APIs) and Software Development Kits (SDKs) that help developers build highly personalized web, iOS, and Android apps are available with HealthTap Cloud. Opening our technology platform to the best developers through an application process enables them to access key modules of the HealthTap Cloud and further propels HealthTap’s mission of bringing affordable, high quality healthcare to billions of people everyday.

To date, participating developers come from a diverse range of institutions, including Fortune 500 employers, multinational payers, hospitals/health systems, government agencies, device/sensor manufacturers, and health app startups. Google, IBM, Flex, and iHealth are just a few of the companies collaborating with HealthTap on building with the HealthTap Cloud. Additionally, Blockchain S.A. is working with the HealthTap Cloud team to create a new healthcare blockchain - oundational infrastructure for managing federated, trusted access to medical records securely between all parties in the private network, including hospitals, doctor practices, insurance companies, and app developers.
