Warby Parker recently built an electronic health record system for its optometrists to use to conduct and store their eye exams. The company used this project as an opportunity to explore building a serverless web application on AWS. Ruthie Nachmany explores why Warby Parker decided to build its own electronic health record system and why it wanted to explore serverless architecture for this project. The project required easy extensibility, which enabled the team to easily add and monitor granular permissions, build a secure and eventually HIPAA-compliant data storage, and create something that provided a better solution than an out-of-the-box option. Ruthie shares details of the system’s implementation, challenges faced, and lessons learned along the way.
