Title II of HIPAA defines policies, procedures and guidelines for maintaining the privacy and security of individually identifiable health information. It requires the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) to draft rules aimed at increasing the efficiency of the health care system by creating standards for the use and dissemination of health care information.
MediVisuals' sharefile handles the encryption and decryption of all files, including those containing PHI. Uploads and downloads of files are between the end user and the storage tier directly over a Secure Socket Layer (SSL) or Transport Layer Security (TLS) encrypted segment using high-grade encryption with no less than 128-bit key strength. SSL 3.0 and TLS are supported, which are the same encryption protocols and algorithms used by e-commerce services and online banking. All files are stored at rest using the Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) with a 256-bit key.
SSAE 16 audited data centers and AES 256-bit encryption ensure the privacy of confidential files during transfer and in storage.
