JourneyApps Provides Free Access for State Governments and Healthcare
April 06, 2020

JourneyApps will open its low-code app development platform at no charge to state governments, healthcare agencies and NGOs fighting the rapidly-spreading COVID-19 pandemic.

The announcement comes as state governments are facing an urgent need to collect patient and hospital data that can be funneled into cloud data warehouses for analysis and rapid response.

The new free plan will give qualifying organizations access to the JourneyApps web-based integrated development environment, OXIDE, that allows developers to build and deploy custom apps while working from home. Developers can use their existing JavaScript skills to rapidly deliver custom apps that automatically work offline and across mobile and desktop devices as well as web browsers, allowing medical personnel to access and report crucial data in remote locations.

“When we heard about a state that wanted to provide a custom app for hospital staff to self-report the inventory levels of supplies and equipment needed for COVID-19 on a daily basis, we knew JourneyApps could help make a difference in this fight,” said Conrad Hofmeyr, CEO at JourneyApps. “Hundreds of organizations around the world are already using JourneyApps to build and deploy mission-critical apps in challenging conditions. What could be more mission-critical than apps used to support the battle against COVID-19?”

In addition, JourneyApps supports the ability to make apps HIPAA compliant, a requirement for apps dealing with patient data to ensure data is secure and that only authorized medical staff can view patient records. “Developers will have to ensure the right app-level controls are in place, but JourneyApps takes care of key requirements, such as data encryption, full data audit trails, and automatic data backups,” said Kobie Botha, Chief Product Officer at JourneyApps.
