Google Sites Intranet
Seamless Migration with HIPAA & GDPR Compliance
apree health is a privately held healthcare organization established in 2022 by Castlight Health and Vera Whole Health, and it is located in Seattle, Washington. Serving over 10 million members, apree health offers data-driven, personalized health plans through its three core products: apree digital, apree whole health, and apree total outcomes. In 2022, apree health decided to transition from Microsoft 365 to Google Workspace to improve collaboration. However, given SharePoint’s (part of the Microsoft 365 suite) deep integration into apree health’s infrastructure, they required expert assistance for transitioning this platform to Google Sites.
Having initially been anchored to Microsoft Office 365, with SharePoint integral to their infrastructure, apree health’s decision to migrate to Google Workspace wasn’t without its complexities. While the transition of core apps and email data was relatively linear, moving from SharePoint to Google Sites, especially when considering HIPAA and GDPR compliance like SharePoint, required dedicated expertise.
apree health engaged Steegle, globally renowned for their expertise in Google Sites, to handle the SharePoint to Google Sites migration. The process began with Steegle’s comprehensive analysis of the functionality of the existing Microsoft SharePoint sites. This was followed by designing enhanced Google Sites and conducting extensive training sessions for apree health’s staff to ensure a seamless transition. Despite the complex nature of the project, Steegle’s in-depth expertise and commitment to understanding apree health’s unique needs ensured successful completion as well as compliance to exacting data security needs.
