New Security-as-a-Service offering mitigates information sharing risk with unprecedented level of PHI detection with the convenience and security of the OpSus Healthcare Cloud
Tausight, the PHI detection company for healthcare, and CloudWave, the largest independent provider of EHR hosting and managed healthcare cloud services, today announced a strategic partnership to provide healthcare organizations with a cloud-based managed service for detecting, tracking and analyzing protected health information (PHI) activity and risk in real-time, anywhere in today’s distributed healthcare ecosystem. Tausight’s patented, ML-native platform provides 24x7 telemetry on the creation, access, storage, movement and replication of PHI, and automatically delivers actionable reports. As Tausight’s Premier Managed Security Services Partner, CloudWave will implement the company’s situational PHI awareness platform and deliver turnkey PHI monitoring, management and response to healthcare providers.
When PHI is shared between providers, patients, health systems and applications it is proven to result in better patient outcomes and cost-effective care. Yet, information sharing increases data vulnerabilities and risk. Upcoming deadlines on information blocking in the 21st Century Cures Act have underscored the need for a deeper level of visibility into all PHI – inside and outside the firewall – and the ability to report on data activity quickly and easily.
Built and managed to meet the security and performance demands of healthcare applications in a redundant network of Tier 4 data centers, CloudWave’s OpSus Healthcare Cloud provides HITECH- and HIPAA-compliant managed services to hospitals and healthcare organizations for hosting, disaster recovery, archiving and remote systems management.
“The Tausight platform was designed to help healthcare organizations ensure sensitive patient data is accurately identified and protected from the point of care to the cloud,” said Frank Nydam, CEO of Tausight. “With CloudWave’s industry-leading, customer-centric management services and the Tausight platform, our joint customers can fast track the detection of all PHI exchanged and simplify compliance with information sharing and incident reporting regulations.”
“We strive to continuously improve our secure OpSus Cloud environment to stay ahead of bad actors targeting patient clinical and financial records,” said Mark Middleton, vice president of Cloud Services and chief quality officer at CloudWave. “Our partnership with Tausight will give our customers unprecedented visibility and insight to the flow of PHI in both the network core and edge and enable us to jointly reduce their vulnerability to breach, misuse, or the leakage of legitimate PHI into ‘shadow PHI’ on unmanaged clouds and endpoints.”
Tausight was founded in 2018 by the co-founder and former CTO of Imprivata, David Ting, with the vision of reducing healthcare-specific cybersecurity incidents by simplifying the way hospitals and healthcare systems detect and manage PHI risk in today’s decentralized healthcare ecosystems. Applying breakthroughs in ML/Federated Learning and NLP, and a detailed understanding of clinical workflows, Tausight developed a revolutionary and affordable, situational PHI awareness platform, giving time back to IT security staff, enabling the free exchange of PHI/EHI, and allowing clinicians to work securely from any device or location. Tausight is backed by top-tier healthcare investors, Polaris Partners, Flare Capital Partners, and .406 Ventures, and is based in Boston, Massachusetts.
