Powering New Digital Healthcare Experiences with Box Platform

This week at HIMSS, we announced new capabilities for Box for Healthcare that enable healthcare providers to leverage the cloud to ease the burden of data sharing and reduce manual processes, such as faxing and scanning across a healthcare system. In addition to the general availability and FDA clearance of the Box DICOM viewer as a Class II Medical Device, our new Provider solution now includes Box Governance, Box consulting services and partner integration capabilities.

As a comprehensive industry solution, our new Box for Healthcare Provider solution transforms how providers work. Box also provides a platform for our customers, partners and developers to build on. Box Platform leverages all of Box's enterprise-grade content management and collaboration features including encryption services, security certifications, sharing and permission models, and metadata, making it possible for healthcare providers to build HIPAA secure custom applications powered by Box.

Leading companies, including eHealth Technologies a record retrieval, referral management and health information exchange company, are leveraging Box Platform to help digitize referral management workflows for hospitals. Building on the Box Platform, eHealth Technologies has created a custom application to provide the secure sharing of medical documents for patient referrals, allowing treating physicians to gain access to a complete view of the medical record for a seamless patient transition between care providers.

"As an industry-leading provider of clinically informed referral services serving more than half of the nation’s top 100 hospitals, we are proud to be leveraging Box Platform to streamline referrals and intelligently aggregate patients’ clinical records,” said Ken Rosenfeld, CEO of eHealth Technologies. “Box Platform enables solutions to be configured in a HIPAA compliant way, supporting the transfer of medical information and patient records which in turn helps our customers get the information they need, when they need it the most – at the point of care.”

Working closely with hospitals and healthcare administrators as well as payors and global life sciences companies, Box's modern enterprise content management capabilities help unlock data trapped in enterprise-based systems. Box is the only cloud-based content management platform that offers a way for companies to power content services in any app, for any user. Our goal with the Box Platform is to help businesses create amazing, secure, and engaging applications, and reimagine how they work with anyone in their extended ecosystem of customers, suppliers, and partners.
