Secure Content Collaboration and Communication for Healthcare Organizations
Healthcare providers and their partners generate, process, share, and store massive amounts of protected health information (PHI) like lab results, prescription records, diagnoses, treatment plans, and more. When PHI is either accidentally or maliciously exposed, patients fall victim to identity theft and insurance fraud while healthcare providers lose patient trust and risk millions of dollars in litigation and penalties.
The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) helps to ensure that sensitive patient information is handled with care and kept secure, promoting trust in the healthcare system and protecting patients from harm. It is essential for healthcare providers and their partners to prioritize HIPAA compliance to protect patient privacy and avoid costly fines. The Kiteworks Private Content Network enables covered entities and their business associates to protect patient privacy, comply with HIPAA, and avoid costly compliance violations. With advanced security features, including automated end-to-end encryption, security infrastructure integrations, a hardened virtual appliance, access controls, and secure deployment options, Kiteworks ensures that PHI is protected both in transit and at rest. Comprehensive audit logs allow for easy tracking of who has accessed or modified files, and granular permission settings ensure that only authorized individuals can access PHI. By using Kiteworks, healthcare providers and their business associates can have peace of mind knowing that they are supported in meeting HIPAA requirements and safeguarding patient privacy.

This helps ensure compliance with the HIPAA Breach Notification Rule and minimize the impact of unauthorized access or disclosure of patient information (PII/PHI).
Streamlined Collaboration With Business Associates
Facilitate secure collaboration, control, and file sharing between healthcare organizations and their business associates. By providing a Private Content Network for exchanging sensitive information, Kiteworks supports compliance with the HIPAA Omnibus Rule. This ensures that patient information remains protected and that covered entities and business associates meet compliance obligations.
Enhanced Privacy Controls for Genetic Information
Implement content-defined zero-trust policies and enhanced privacy controls by the Final Rule for GINA to protect genetic information. The platform ensures limited access to sensitive genetic information, preventing unauthorized use or disclosure. Kiteworks enables healthcare organizations to securely manage file transfer and protect genetic information by offering granular access controls and secure communication channels while complying with GINA and the HIPAA Privacy Rule.
