We founded Catalyze a little over a year ago to solve compliance issues arising between healthcare, technology and data storage. It’s a very domain-specific problem, and many people outside of the healthcare industry don’t truly understand what it entails from the perspective of technology, development or healthcare innovation.
My co-founder and I had experienced challenges related to compliance, hosted technology, storage and data processing first hand at a previous company, so these were problems we really wanted to solve.
In the process of building that first company, we ran into some roadblocks and discovered that compliance was an even larger problem than we’d thought. So, we wanted to create a solution that allowed healthcare startups to succeed in selling and distributing their applications to providers and patients without the stress of jumping compliance hurdles.
Cloud storage is such a simple solution to so many data and information storage issues, and it is now used across multiple industries. However, the healthcare industry has its own set of rules and regulations that can make utilizing cloud storage tricky.
