If your business is a covered healthcare provider such as a hospital, clinic, regional health services, or individual medical practitioner, health insurer, HMO, public health authority, healthcare clearinghouses, or their business associates, your network must be HIPAA compliant.
HIPAA is the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act, and it sets the standard for protecting the personal private information (PPI) of patients. Any company that handles protected health information (PHI) is required under this act to have a certain standard of physical, network, and administrative security.
Citrix ShareFile for HealthCare is HIPAA Compliant.
Citrix ShareFile for HealthCare is a HIPAA compliant virtual private cloud that allows healthcare organizations to enjoy the benefits of file sharing and collaboration in the cloud. Rather than maintaining your own HIPAA compliant infrastructure Citrix does it for you, and it does it well.
ShareFile uses SSAE 16 audited datacenters and AES 256-bit encryption to ensure that all files are private during transfer and while in storage. There’s a full suite of mobile tools, a desktop widget, and a plugin for Outlook to easily send and request files.
ShareFile for HealthCare adds some other new HIPAA compliant features as described by the company:
Safely share PHI with multiple people across an organization
Quickly and securely send large image files (CAT scans, X-rays, DICOM etc.) over private and public networks
Archive research and sensitive files in a central location for teams and organizations to access
