Certified Cloud for the Healthcare Industry

What Successful Digitization Looks like for Physicians, Hospitals and the Healthcare Sector

Time is an extremely important factor in the healthcare sector. Exam results, laboratory data, and patient records are generally very extensive and need to be shared quickly – but also just as securely.

The greatest challenge is that this sensitive, personal data must be available at all times, but under no circumstances can it be allowed to fall into the hands of unauthorized third parties. As a result of the GDPR, the compliance requirements are extremely high in this sector.

This is why hospitals, clinics, doctor’s offices, billing centers, consultants, physiotherapists, and even insurance companies are all required to utilize a certified solution that complies with applicable privacy law and makes their daily work easier while simultaneously maintaining the highest levels of security. As a result of digitization, state-of-the-art cloud storage now offers numerous ways to securely share data in the healthcare sector.

What Hospitals Must Consider with Regard to KRITIS

The term “critical infrastructure” (abbreviated KRITIS in German) refers to organizations or institutions that are of vital importance to society. If this infrastructure were to fail or be affected by long-term supply disruptions, a severe threat to public safety or other dramatic consequences could be expected. That is why these organizations are subject to special protection, which requires appropriate security measures.

Security Certifications and Seals Awarded to DRACOON

Send Emails of Any Size in Compliance with the GDPR

All employees have the possibility to send or receive large files comfortably and securely via a release link. Thus, there are no size restrictions as for the email inbox. At the same time, all emails are GDPR-compliant, as the file attachments or the entire email can be sent fully encrypted.

Confidential Files
Stay Confidential

Through the role of data room manager, DRACOON allows departments to take control of managing their data rooms themselves. This not only reduces the IT department’s administrative workload, but also prevents access to confidential files such as payroll data.

Secure Access Anytime
from Anywhere

All employees can use DRACOON as a file service directly on their mobile devices via the native apps. This means they have secure and convenient access to all their files, even when out of the office.

Up-To-Date Documents
without Duplicates

Employees can all collaborate on files in DRACOON data rooms with internal employees or external partners. Thanks to the central and secure platform, everyone has access to the latest documents at all times, eliminating duplicates.

Maintain Control over Your Data

In line with the principle of privacy by design, DRACOON features built-in client-side encryption. DRACOON offers maximum protection of both sent and saved files, because unlike with other solutions, the owner is the only person who has the decryption key.

Effectively Prevent Shadow IT

Every employee has their own personal home drive. This means companies can completely prohibit the use of USB flash drives or private cloud storage and effectively prevent shadow IT.


Physicians and Hospitals Can Use DRACOON to Easily and Securely Digitize Their Processes

When it comes to the digitization of hospitals, clinics, doctor’s offices, billing centers, consultants, physiotherapists, and others, it’s important to remember:
These organizations possess extremely sensitive data that must be handled with the utmost care. DRACOON is a GDPR-compliant cloud with end-to-end encryption that, thanks to its certifications, is easy to implement and offers a wide range of possible applications.


Sharing and Storing Patient Data in Compliance with Privacy Law

Patients often need their medical reports or x-ray images for further use. Physicians and hospitals must be able to provide these in a manner that complies with privacy law.

Your advantage with DRACOON:
Treatment data, health and patient data, laboratory results, MRT files, and X-rays can all easily be shared via a password-protected download link. Patients can also securely send these documents to their attending physicians via file request (upload link).

Success Story Denton Systems GmbH:
Denton initially stored its internal data in Microsoft OneDrive. However, as a German company, Denton is subject to strict German data protection laws. For this reason, the company was looking for a legally compliant patient data storage system that patients could also access externally. In addition, the new system was also to be integrated with other tools to avoid data silos in the form of multiple data storage.

Use Case: MDK Reports

Health insurance companies require documentation of diagnostic findings in order to review the costs. 

Your advantage with DRACOON:
Findings can be shared easily, quickly, and securely via DRACOON, even if there is no standard procedure in place.


Use Case: Secure Communication

People often unwittingly send data through insecure channels like WhatsApp out of convenience to quickly discuss an issue or get a colleague’s opinion. 

Your advantage with DRACOON:
DRACOON is a perfect alternative as a secure means of communication, since the files can be shared just as quickly and conveniently while maintaining security.


Use Case: Health Insurance App

Health insurance companies have to expand their range of services and offer a separate app for the insured: This app can be used to digitize and simplify communication, as the insured can use it to submit documents such as certificates of incapacity to work or invoices and have their data and health information securely available at a glance.

Your advantage with DRACOON:
DRACOON can be easily connected to an app via its open API interfaces. All receipts and documents necessary for the exchange between the insured and the health insurance company can now be securely received and managed in the app. DRACOON is invisibly in the background the secure storage location.

Use Case: Community Health Centers (CHCs)

Patients are often initially examined at their doctor’s office or at a CHC, then referred to a hospital for surgery. Couriers are still frequently used to send the findings today, despite the fact that this is both time-consuming and costly.

Your advantage with DRACOON:
Files can be shared using a password-protected download link that can be sent in seconds and therefore eliminates the cost of the courier – while simultaneously increasing security.


Use Case: Research Projects

Research projects play an extremely important role at large hospitals. Usually several hospitals and numerous external parties collaborate in such cases. This requires a secure storage space for the files that everyone can easily access without the effort of using VPNs. 

Your advantage with DRACOON:
With the help of DRACOON, these kinds of projects can be set up in a few minutes and without help from IT staff. You can give all of the participants access to the files via DRACOON with the appropriate access rights. You can also specify that the access granted to external partners and service providers expires after a certain period of time. To make collaboration even easier, DRACOON for Windows and Mac allows you to integrate the data rooms directly into the Explorer/Finder – meaning all of the project participants can work on the files directly “in the cloud” using all of their local applications.


Use Case: KRITIS

In Germany, KRITIS organizations are subject to special protection requiring appropriate security measures, including “adequate precautions to avoid disruptions to information technology systems, components, and processes” that must be state-of-the-art and demonstrated to Germany’s Federal Office for Information Security.

Your advantage with DRACOON:
DRACOON helps KRITIS entities provide the necessary documentation proving that their data is saved, sent, and managed securely.
