Why We Exist

Helping Healthcare Transition

We believe the future of value-based patient care will be powered by HIPAA compliant, scalable, interoperable infrastructure. We exist to help all of healthcare transition to that future by de-risking the challenges that come with it.

What We Are

The Platform for Digital Health

Datica is the digital health platform powering the next era of healthcare technology. In a post-EHR world, technology focused on outcomes will be brought together with the patient at the center. Those businesses and tools, innovations and technologies need a platform to enable the cloud, resolve compliance, facilitate interoperability, and enact security. Datica is that platform.

How We Do It

Healthcare's HITRUST CSF Certified Cloud

Datica provides HIPAA compliant, HITRUST CSF Certified cloud-based infrastructure for developers across healthcare. We relieve the burden of compliance so teams can focus on bettering patient outcomes, and think compliance should be the last thing innovators think about. Our approach to integration removes interoperability as a barrier while creating a trusted networked world using open standards.

How We Create Value

Integration Breeds Innovation

We believe connection is key to bettering patient outcomes. Health system administrators functionally innovate through rapid prototyping of internal projects or assimilation of external solutions to real problems. Integration accelerates innovation because powerful ideas have little impact until they are first-class citizens of the health information system.

What We Believe

Trust Is Earned

  • Transparency is how complex subjects, like HIPAA or HL7, become easier to understand. We're trusted because we're transparent.
  • Healthcare application development shouldn't be harder than other industry just because of HIPAA. Products shouldn't compete on HIPAA compliance and interoperability, which should be standard components.
  • Give back to the healthcare community whenever possible. Use open source tools whenever possible. Our open source contributions
  • We know we can't make healthcare better alone. Industry collaboration is important. Work together for the greater good.
