Tampa Cloud Solutions Development Firm RevStar Consulting Works with Smrt Testing to Provide HIPAA Compliant Platform for Curbside COVID Testing

February 23, 2021

With many communities still reeling from the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic, the team at Elevate is always delighted to highlight the work Tampa businesses are doing to help out. Tampa-based cloud solutions development firm RevStar Consulting is fast-tracking a project for Austin Texas based Smrt Testing to provide a cloud-native HIPAA/HITRUST compliant web and mobile platform built in 30 days. Smrt Testing is a drive-through COVID-19 testing center that provides test results via email, offering both PCR testing (~2 day turnaround time) and rapid testing (~15 minute turnaround time). They also offer receipts for the PCR testing to submit to your insurance company for potential reimbursement.

We sat down with RevStar CEO Ken Pomella to ask what types of challenges he and his team faced with this project. “We were able to fast track the process because of our expertise building compliant applications regularly. We build cloud-native on AWS and we are fortunate to have a team of experts who know how to deliver results that drive business value quickly. This project was a priority for my team and I because we saw this as a way to give back and lend our expertise to helping tackle COVID-19.”

We are appreciative of the insight and innovation our Tampa technology community continues to bring to a myriad of issues we face today. In addition to the work RevStar Consulting is doing to combat COVID-19, Ken has also mentored a variety of startups and midsize businesses to help them maintain profit during the pandemic.
