HIPAA compliance for mobile is the responsibility of app development teams and their companies. While mobile technologies and platforms like Ionic provide UI and integration with Native SDKs, they do not handle user data or network security as it pertains to HIPAA compliance.

One of my first posts is a deep dive into Capacitor, Ionic’s new Native API and Web View layer. If you’re interested in the genesis and philosophy of the […]

Over the next few weeks we’re going to open up several positions. I wanted to quickly expand on what those roles entail and what the day to do day looks like, and also share some insight into what we do here at Ionic day in and day out! We’re going to start with sales engineering […]
