As part of Total HIPAA’s efforts to provide solutions for its clients that meet HIPAA requirements, THC has qualified Sookasa as a vendor that facilitates safe storage and exchange of Protected Health Information.
Sookasa, which pairs with Dropbox™ to store, sync, and share files, offers a number of features to enable HIPAA-compliant use of the cloud, including:
- Transparent file encryption on desktop and mobile devices
- Simple access controls that qualify people and devices to open specific files
- User and device blocking capability in the event of lost or stolen devices or in employee termination scenarios
- Complete audit trail, which shows every file modification or access across your organization
- Emergency access via a centralized web dashboard
As more and more information is stored in the cloud, it’s easier than ever to access information and collaborate on-the-go, a dynamic that makes a secure file-sharing capability increasingly valuable. Whether it is an insurance agency sharing client documents or a computer vendor transmitting CT scans, a cost-effective solution that protects health information is vital.
“Sookasa’s solution is easy to implement and one-tenth the cost of implementing an on-premise infrastructure capability,” commented Jason Karn, Director of IT and Education, Total HIPAA Compliance. “Dropbox™ is the most popular cloud file-sharing application in the market today, and Sookasa’s encryption solution makes it even more desirable for users,” Karn added.
Total HIPAA provides compliance documents and training for five markets
- Health Insurance Agents
- Employers who offer health coverage to employees
- Business Associates and Subcontractor Business Associates
In addition, Total HIPAA identifies and qualifies solutions that will help its clients protect electronic Protected Health Information when it is transmitted or stored on computers.
“We recognize Total HIPAA both as a solution to meet HIPAA requirements and as an information resource about HIPAA,” said Asaf Cidon, CEO and co-founder of Sookasa. “We’re thrilled that TotalHIPAA has vetted and recommended Sookasa’s solution to facilitate HIPAA-compliant use of the cloud.”
