Hi Rasmus

Providing access to specialized medical care via eConsultation

Hi Rasmus was inspired by the founder's son, Rasmus, who was diagnosed with autism at an early age. His father was fully devoted to lessening the burden on parents, children, and therapists who work with autism and thereby became
a founder of an impact enterprise. Today Hi Rasmus benefits children with autism all over the world and provides access to behavioral health consulting services.

Hi Rasmus and Freshcode partnership path

Social impact
Freshcode prides to deliver services to people who need medical care at the moment, and that is the most powerful engine to move forward and create the best possible solutions.
From consulting to comprehensive collaboration
Our partnership with Hi Rasmus started as a consulting. Together we identified business problems and their causes, including software development challenges and human resources issues. Eventually, we turned into fully involved project partners providing software development and business management services.
Clear goals and requirements
The client's clear view of a future product, from design and feature set to full app's business logic, is what helpedus to achieve set goals together and avoid wasting time and resources.

Development Challenges: Issues and Solutions

HIPAA Compliant App
Firebase (Google) doesn't sign a business associates agreement (BAA) and is not configurable in a HIPAA-compliant manner.
It turned out that Google makes exceptions
on a case-by-case basis to accept products
as HIPAA-eligible if they have done due diligence.

The Freshcode team implemented so-called HIPAA Technical Safeguards, including Access Control, Audit Controls, Integrity, Transmission Security
to forestall identity theft and scam.

We used IAM in GCP to secure Hi Rasmus data
with Firestore and signed BAA to satisfy HIPAA regulatory requirements.

Secure 1:1 Video Calls
Make the video conferencing system reliable and secure and protect it from any data breach risks.
Given that Hi Rasmus is a HIPAA-covered
type of app, we focused on its compliance with regulatory acts.

We used Twilio cloud service to perform P2P communication and to provide the privacy required. Twilio doesn't intercept the media in P2P rooms, so it's not possible to record or to transcode video\audio calls in Hi Rasmus or to make it interoperate with other services.
Distributed Data Storage
Comply with the data privacy policies of each country and state.
Locally maintained databases in the USA,
Europe, Canada, and Australia were divided
and organized for low latency environments
and data security.

All trackable data collected from the app
clients is cloud-based and stored in distributed secure servers, so HIPAA compliance was easier to achieve.

Lesson we've learned

The Freshcode team has endeavored to make
a distance training system as interactive as possible and build a community-like Hi Rasmus environment
with high-quality parent training and communication. We were focusing on the 3 key aspects:
HIPAA-compliance app keeping the privacy of individually identifiable health information
user-intuitive interface and simplified UX
fully optimized app's productivity
We hope we've successfully contributed to the process of transforming impersonal healthcare consulting into interactive and informal communication.
We believe such products will expand the reach movingpast geographical and scheduling constraintsand will reshape the industry thanks to innovative digital enhancement.
We thank our client for his clear view of a future product and deep expertise that helps us to achieve all set goals together and continue this partnership with mutual understanding.
