Client’s Challenges

Data Storage, Management, and Reporting

PillowPH received healthcare data from multiple feeds, and this data needed to be stored, processed, and delivered in reports to customers. Additionally, they needed all of these things to be done in a way that was HIPAA compliant.

Accurate System that Made Room for Growth

The company was using a suboptimal approach with their data, and it was mostly being handled manually. Not only did this approach take up a lot of time, it also made them vulnerable to reporting errors—something that could end up being a major issue.

WHAT WE DID

MEV used its deep knowledge of the pharmaceutical data to create a solution to manage, process and organize multiple data feeds according to industry standards and regulations.

Data Management System

Over the years, MEV had built expertise working with the same data sources that Pillow PH was dealing with such as pricing data from Medispan.

MEV constructed an ETL layer to collect and normalize the data, an enterprise database to store it in a HIPAA compliant way, an API layer for data access and a custom reporting module to maximize value of the data and improve customer experience.
