Connecting Health Data for Better Outcomes
HHS required an independent public facing Open Data platform to meet increasing demand for search and discovery of machine-readable health data. This new platform was expected to provide an intuitive, easy to use web user interface to submit, publish, search and discover and consume simple and complex datasets. In addition, it needed to automatically scale to support increasing numbers of datasets and users.
Requirements were met utilizing a Blue-Green deployment strategy ensured zero-downtime during release deployments and operations of HealthData.gov. Applying user-centric design principles, we rapidly prototyped UI wireframes and iteratively tested and refined them through usability testing.
These designs were transformed into functional software leveraging best-of-breed 100% open source technologies delivered through a fully automated continuous delivery pipeline.
