On high of a profitable rebranding from HealthHeart, Keyqo has introduced vital progress in direction of the discharge of their new healthcare IT safety product.
In a current replace, CEO Mark Rudnitsky, described the product as follows:
For this primary section, we’re creating a safety monitoring software, which tracks the switch of delicate knowledge inside and out of a given clinic’s community. We’ve a small ‘agent’ that will get put in on every machine on the community. It displays all site visitors coming out and in of that machine. It interfaces with an intrusion-detection system (IDS), which tells it sure ‘patterns’ to search for, which point out affected person knowledge is being compromised. If these patterns are detected by the agent, it would report back to a central server with what it discovered. The server will take these logs, encrypt them, and retailer the data on a personal blockchain (this can be a requirement so we’re HIPAA-compliant). So irrespective of if the machine is compromised by an attacker, the logs can by no means be modified. There’s a dashboard/admin console that the top consumer makes use of to see any alerts or indicators of compromise, in addition to separate instruments for storing buyer knowledge, reporting, and billing.
Velvetech, Keyqo’s software program improvement associate, has offered an estimate of Part One completion in about three months. First to be accomplished are the IDS and blockchain parts, with the brokers and dashboard following later.
Whereas the unique blockchain EHR idea has been quickly positioned on maintain, Rudnitsky appears optimistic on the pivot to HCIT safety software program:
The price of healthcare knowledge breaches is larger than it’s ever been. Each single file breached can price a company $380. The safety options provided by others clearly aren’t working. So not solely do healthcare organizations of all sizes want the blockchain safety options we’re constructing, we’re additionally capable of profit them with minimal disruption to their operations. We are able to combine with any IT system hospital may use. No want for a full EHR migration, no want for system downtime – suppliers can safe their affected person knowledge with out even pondering of compromising the standard of care.
The pivot to safety appears to be paying off. A number of hospital chains reportedly have reached out to Keyqo and the corporate’s management has been creating consciousness amongst Illinois podiatry clinics.
