Designed to help the advent of Internet of Things (IoT) and HIPAA security requirements in the healthcare industry.
The days of rooms filled with medical information in paper files are dwindling away. To keep this information secure is a major challenge and a top priority for Healthcare organizations. The information contains Personal Health Records of individuals which comprises of health details, diagnoses, physician conversation, medications etc. Healthcare companies need to ensure that this personal information is accessed only by direct parties and thereby creating a great need for securing healthcare data.
Another most important compliance requirement is HIPAA, or the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act which is provided for federal protection of patient’s health information that is held by certain entities including doctors, pharmacies and insurance companies. This means that healthcare information is protected by law and healthcare providers are responsible for acquiring solutions to keep data safe and private.
A common scenario noted post HIPAA compliance issuance is the challenge in transferring the data among physicians, insurance agents and pharmacies. The large sensitive data files in the process of transferring need to have appropriate security measures tagged to it in order for a Healthcare organization to be in compliance with HIPAA and other compliance guidelines.
