About Datica

We bring healthcare to the cloud.

Datica was formed in 2013 to help healthcare technology companies move to the cloud. We help our customers achieve HIPAA compliance, integrate securely with hospitals and EHRs, and focus on what they're best at — without worrying about compliance. We're the experts at understanding the exact policies and procedures required to turn HIPAA-eligible services on the public cloud into architectures that can pass a HITRUST CSF assessment.

Why We Exist

Empowering Digital Health Success

The complexity of compliance on the cloud is holding back the adoption of cloud native technology in the healthcare space. By removing compliance as a concern, we help our customers focus on what they do best.

What We Are

The Most Secure and Compliant Infrastructure Possible

The hardest part about compliance on the cloud is between the physical infrastructure (which is the responsibility of AWS, Azure, or GCP) and the customer application. In another words, the operating system layer of cloud native architectures. We solve that by helping customers address attestation responsibilities with a suite of products built to fit the specific use case on the cloud.

How We Do It

Best Practices are Best Practices

HITRUST Certified

By mapping the very best compliance management frameworks, like the HITRUST CSF, to the requirements of other global regimes, we give customers a compliance story across geographies. We started with HIPAA in 2013, tackling the requirements of the most conservative and highest regulated industry on the cloud, and have expanded since then.

How We Create Value

Compliance Breeds Innovation

Cloud native computing foundation

When regulated organizations have a handle on their cloud compliance program, they can innovate at the speed necessary to keep pace with the competition. It's a disruptive world out there, and the cloud gives companies an edge. Controlling compliance on the cloud is a step towards avoiding disruption.

What We Believe

Trust Is Earned

  • Compliance moves at the speed of trust.
  • Transparency is how complex subjects, like HIPAA or GDPR, become easier to understand. We're trusted because we're transparent.
  • Healthcare application development shouldn't be harder than other industries just because of HIPAA. Doing business in the European Union shouldn't be harder because of GDPR. Compliance shouldn't block progress.
  • Give back to the developer community whenever possible. Use open source tools whenever possible. Learn more about our open source contributions.
  • We know we can't make the cloud better alone. Industry collaboration is important. Work together for the greater good.
  • We are "solutions-first". This means Datica brings our deep healthcare, compliance, and integration expertise to work with customers to find the optimal solution — not a prefab, off-the-shelf product.
