Executive Summary

Indicina contracted with Francioni to develop and host a web application that enables its clients to calculate sample size parameters for accurate reporting of HEDIS® hybrid measures.

Francioni developed and implemented on schedule using AWS best practices, including serverless compute, automated CI/CD, and well-architected review.

The Challenge

Deliver the application in under two months

The Samplifier application had to be built, tested, and delivered within two months.

Eliminate developer’s time spent on deployment tasks   

One key requirement was to have the DevOps pipeline fully automated in order to remove the constant need for developers to deploy code on different environments for testing teams.

Keep infrastructure and operational costs down

The application usage will start with few users and it will increase over time. Indicina required that the solution scale rapidly and cost-effectively as usage increases.

About Indicina

Indicina is a privately-held health informatics firm, based in Austin, TX, which provides consulting and data validation expertise on health information systems and exchanges, as well as interoperability and standards that impact population health metrics.

Currently, Indicina specializes in National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA) Healthcare Effectiveness Data and Information Set (HEDIS®) compliance audits for public and private clients performed through strategic partnerships with quality improvement organizations and health data validation companies.

The Solution

Samplifier is a HEDIS® hybrid measure sample size calculator to be rendered as a single-page web application.

We delivered a fully Serverless application with no fixed costs and no need for operations to support servers, software upgrades, or additional security monitoring. The workload can scale as the usage increases.

Another requirement was to provide the flexibility to allow users to either create their own credentials to access the system, or to use their existing Google and Microsoft credentials for OIDC connections. Amazon Cognito with its key authentication features, was the right solution to create a good user experience with low friction.

Results and Benefits

Productivity Improvement

The application automates HEDIS® measure reporting and auditing task that was being performed manually. The automated process lowers error rates in the determination of hybrid measure minimum sample sizes, and generates significant efficiency gains for users.

Technical Capability

The application provides a demonstrable example of Indicina’s capacity to design and implement a web application that uses technologies and protocols included in the HL7 FHIR® standards framework and developer community, including Amazon Web Services (AWS), OAuth2.0, OpenID Connect, XML/JSON, JavaScript (Node.js), GitHub, and REST API protocols.

Reduced Risk

Manual deployments are highly error prone. What is the impact of ONE failed production deployment to your company financed and brand image?

Decreased Cost

ROI of over 100% in the first year, and reduction of 90% in development team time on building, deploying and remediating code.

Scale when required

The Serverless Pipeline will use resources when needed and and scale automatically. No need to buy more servers, CPU or memory.

Improved Time to Market

CI/CD is at the core of the DevOps solution. Organisations embracing DevOps increased their response time and strategic advantage.
