Developers and HIPAA

Sale of Data Collected by a Consumer Targeted App

We are not a covered entity or business associate. We are developing a direct-to-consumer app that tracks medication adherence. We want to de-identify the information the app collects to sell to third parties. Do we follow the same HIPAA de-identification processes that a covered entity or business associate would follow?
