HIPAA Compliant, DICOM Enabled and more.
Patient safety is the highest priority at health care and life science institutions. BelmontCloud in alliance with Nextcloud makes patient information available to healthcare professionals when they need it through an easy-to-use interface with the highest degree of reliability, security and privacy at reasonable cost.
Sending around data by email or using public SaaS file sharing solutions does not provide much security for sensitive data. Encryption is complicated and cumbersome to use, reducing the real benefits due to employees working around them or making mistakes.
Keeping data on your own infrastructure or at a trusted local private or public cloud provider means you stay in control. Only then can you show your customers exactly where their sensitive documents are. Regulators can be certain that non-compliance with proper process is minimized.
Most consumer-grade solutions like Dropbox or Office 365 were not designed with privacy regulations and security concerns in mind, mixing data from consumers and businesses, spread out in data centers across the globe. Enterprise IT workloads may be processed by Cloud Providers liable to the US CLOUD Act, meaning your business data can be leaked on orders of the US judicial system, often without disclosure to you.
Rather than trying to work around their limitations, we provide a security-first solution which puts you in complete control over the location and access policies of data with a private cloud solution as well as a managed public cloud solution offered by local and trusted providers.
Easy access to data and putting the user first.
Protocols, status updates and test results can be stored safely and shared easily among the professionals who need access. With the growing complexity of the medical profession comes increasing amounts of patient data. Having patient information available in a moments notice can save lives. Our software is designed for ease of use, fitting familiar interfaces and lowering the barrier to sharing and data access.
A first requirement for any secure solution to share data is that it does not force complexity on the user. Complexity leads to mistakes and mistakes can cost lives! Our software makes accessing and sharing data a breeze, providing users a comfortable, familiar workspace..
Data needs to be available where the patient is. Tablets, mobile devices, laptops and desktops all have access to the same files at a moments notice thanks to our first-class software clients.
Doctors and nurses can tag and comment on files for easy collaboration, roll back files to earlier versions or find deleted files in the trash. Real time collaborative editing and secure audio/video calls and chat complement the array of features aimed at enhancing productivity.
The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act is a US law designed to provide privacy standards to protect patients' medical records and other health information provided to health plans, doctors, hospitals and other health care providers.
HIPAA mandates industry-wide standards for protection and confidentiality of protected health information (PHI), both technical and in terms of processes.
The HITECH Act widens the scope of privacy and security protections available under HIPAA; it increases the potential legal liability for non-compliance; and it provides for more enforcement.

Digital Imaging and Communications in Medicine (DICOM) is the international standard to handle medical images, ubiquitous worldwide in radiological imaging devices and systems.
A third party developed a DICOM viewer for Nextcloud, enabling medical professionals to view and modify DICOM files. It parses and displays patient information, enabling viewing of images with informational overlays including Computed Radiography (CR), Computed Tomography (CT), Digital Radiography (DX), Mammography (MG), and Magnetic Resonance (MR).
The DICOM viewer is a powerful example of the capabilities of Nextcloud and how it can be extended and integrated to support the workflow of professionals.
