Protecting information that contains Protected Health Information (PHI) is not optional. It’s also not easy. The number of drug names, health conditions, and ICD-10* codes is staggering, and keeping track of country and region-specific requirements can be overwhelming.

CloudLock’s solution helps you stay compliant with built-in, pre-defined healthcare policies tailored to your organization’s specific needs. And as needed, CloudLock’s policy engine can also be tuned to adapt to your organization’s specific requirements and risk-thresholds. For example, identifying when drug names are posted near an individual’s name, or in folders they are not allowed in.

CloudLock provides the flexibility to take a risk-appropriate response when PHI is detected. Actions can range from notifying the user or administrator of a possible policy violation to encryption and quarantining of the offending file or field. Specific policies include the following and more:

  • Credit Card Number and Drug Name
  • Credit Card Number and Health Condition
  • ICD10 Code and Person Name
  • ICD10 Code and Health Condition
  • National Drug Codes
  • Person Name and Drug Name
  • Person Name and Health Condition
  • Social Security Number and Drug Name
  • Social Security Number and Health Condition
