Modivcare Care Manager Dashboard

A React application that serves as Modivcare's internal web portal for healthcare providers to administer care to insurance beneficiaries. Due to the prevalence of electronically protected health information (ePHI) in this application, compliance with Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) was necessary, and strict security measures were enforced.

Modivcare Member App

Modivcare's main mobile application for healthcare recipients. The main functionality is for users to schedule non-emergency medical transportation. e.g., trips to the dialysis appointments covered by their health insurance.

I was one of the full-stack engineers in a team of six that continuously developed and maintained the software. Since ePHI was prevalent, security was a heavy priority to abide by HIPAA regulations.

Don't Go Travel Survey App
A Next.js survey application for determining a user's travel persona. This app would calculate results based on a weighted formula and then collect these results for business use.

Single Sign-On authentication was required and was done so via Auth0. I also developed a dynamic approach to manipulating page meta-data for sharing content-specific Facebook posts.
