Medical & Healthcare
The information used in the medical and healthcare industries is a unique and highly confidential type of data. This data may be used to diagnose patients, conduct research studies, and play a role in potential cures for medical issues.
Healthcare data involves highly personal information - PHI (Protected Health Information) and PII (Personally Identifiable Information). The healthcare industry is highly regulated with mandatory obligations, and IT infrastructure in this industry also falls under these strict obligations. Even if a log collection solution is under no regulatory obligations (where the logs don’t include personal data), healthcare companies prefer a solution that is on their side when it comes to helping them achieve compliance.
NXLog has provided secure log collection solutions for the highly regulated healthcare industry in the United States, the United Kingdom, and throughout Europe. Our customers include Fortune 500 healthcare service providers and pharmaceutical companies.
- Help companies meet compliance requirements, such as the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) and Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health Act (HITECH). These compliance frameworks include the provision of secure data transfer mechanisms across different machines, and proper monitoring and reporting on potential data breaches.
- Where non-compliance can result in civil or criminal penalties, the awareness and ability of security teams to respond quickly to data breaches is a significant asset.
- NXLog solutions can integrate with modern, as well as time-tested, technologies and can be implemented within existing healthcare IT infrastructure.
