Health Management Associates


45% decrease in time to market

We ran the innovation lab and enterprise architecture practice for a Fortune 500 hospital chain.


High Availability
Healthcare Platform

We increased the security of HMA’s data center and moved cloud-friendly workloads to AWS for upgrades in performance, reliability and uptime.  The result: Five 9’s and HIPAA compliant all the way. We patented this previously unseen approach to healthcare infrastructure.


Innovative New
Clinical Applications

We brought a user-centered approach to HMA where we designed, prototyped and deployed eight different clinical, business, IP and HR applications. We unlocked low cost hospital deployments on ChromeBooks, iPads, iPods and physicians’ personal devices.


A Platform For Innovation

We wrapped legacy data sources in modern APIs to decrease developer ramp time and slash time to market for newly developed applications.  We combined SQL and NoSQL databases to enhance replication, optimize retrieval time and increase data correctness across clinical apps.


“Kickdrum’s end-to-end approach combined with strong communication and consistent execution were the reason that Kickdrum was the only partner we classified as strategic.”
