About Kitchry Health

Aimed at boldly transforming the delivery of health advice, Kitchry Health’s mobile application allows dieticians to store and view all their client information in one place. By having full access to their clients’ profiles in this way, these health professionals can create and send personalized diet plans plus nutrition and wellness recommendations. They can also fully communicate with and track their clients’ progress.

The Challenge

With the launch of their dietary mobile application in mid-September 2017, Kitchry Health recognized the need to move onto software-supporting infrastructure that complies with HIPAA regulations. Created by dietitians, the software application combines meal planning, patient reports, and customizable dietary templates. The company has created a reliable database of up-to-date nutritional information which dietitians can share with clients in the form of personalized meal plans. 

As Kitchry Health’s application database stores an extensive level of sensitive Electronic Health Records (EHRs) regarding their dieticians’ clients in the form of Protected Health Information (PHI) and ongoing tracking data, the company needed secure infrastructure with appropriate privacy protections.

By leveraging AWS, Ibexlabs provisioned application infrastructure for Kitchry Health that meets HIPAA compliance regulations while still helping their dieticians connect quickly and easily with clients. AWS infrastructure meets all the necessary security and privacy requirements at the same time as being agile and scalable to meet fluctuating traffic demands.
