HIPAA-compliant File Sharing for Healthcare

The healthcare industry is in the midst of a huge transformation, fueled by the need to improve patient outcome while reducing healthcare costs. And government regulations such as the Affordable Care Act (ACA), HIPAA and HITECH are forcing all organizations involved in healthcare to implement new systems to manage patient information.

The kiteworks solution can play a critical role by helping organizations securely create, capture, share and manage images and documents related to patient care, insurance claims processing, and healthcare operations.

From secure collaboration to patient file transfer to mobile access to enterprise systems, kiteworks offers a highly secure, fully auditable platform that can be installed on-premise and administered by healthcare employees for the greatest level of control and accountability.

For customers governed by the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (“HIPAA”), Accellion adheres to the HIPAA compliance obligations of those customers under a HIPAA Business Associate Agreement as provided by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.
