Compliance with global standards

At Purrweb, we have a lot of experience with legal requirements in different regions and industries. For our healthcare software development services, we most often have to work around HIPAA, GDPR, FDA regulations, and ISO standards.


HIPAA stands for the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act. It provides strict guidelines on how to handle personal data of patients, or protected health information (PHI). HIPAA applies to all apps that work in the U.S. jurisdiction and deal with sensitive information in healthcare. 

It is crucial to account for HIPAA during healthcare software development services. The goal of these regulations is to protect users. If software follows HIPAA standards, it often means that users and healthcare professionals can trust the organization and expect the confidentiality and integrity of data.


GDPR is relevant to all startups that work in the European Union or handle dates of EU residents. It focuses on the overall data protection and privacy rights of individuals, including in healthcare mobile application development. 

GDPR guidelines include transparent data processing, opportunities for users to control over their personal data, and opt-in or opt-out when giving consent. Same here: just like with HIPAA, apps that follow GDPR, show users that they can be trusted with sensitive health information.


The Food and Drug Administration regulates the development, manufacturing, and marketing of medical devices in the United States to make sure they are safe and effective. They give out their own regulations for apps that work and process data from those devices.

If your platform falls under that criteria, you would have to go through a rigorous evaluation process, including premarket clearance or approval.


ISO stands for International Organization for Standardization and develops guidelines for different software globally. There are several ISO regulations that your healthcare app might need to comply with. 

For example, ISO 82304 is a standard for software as a medical device (SaMD) platforms, while ISO 13485 is for software that is used in designing and manufacturing medical devices.

Healthcare mobile application development cycle

  • UI/UX Design

    We create a mind map to think through the app’s logic. Then turn it into black and white wireframes. When those are approved, we design 1 or 2 screens to refine the general interface style. After that, we go through the details, touch up the final design, and create a UI kit to speed up the development.

  • Planning out the project

    We analyze the market and study competitors. Then create user stories and assess the workload of your project based on your desired features. This stage allows us to foresee possible bottlenecks and changes.

    Project examination image
  • Quality Assurance

    We test every project, both manually and automatically, so there are no bugs in the product.

    Testing image
  • Development

    The development is broken up into 2-week sprints. This way you can control the work in progress and see the results. We beta-tested it in TestFlight and Google Play to see the performance on real hardware.

    App development image
  • Release and support

    We know everything about App Store and Google Play publication and see every project through release. After that, we scale and support, add new features, and filter out bugs.
