PALO ALTO, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Today, Skyflow announced Skyflow for Healthcare, including passport solutions for Covid-19 testing and vaccination tracking. The solution built on Skyflow’s privacy-preserving vault technology is designed to manage the billions of Covid test results and vaccinations expected in 2021. The healthcare data and web applications are ready to serve everyone from individual citizens and their families to private companies like theme park operators and airlines, government entities from your local county health department, and to the FDA and HHS.
The new year has brought powerful tools in the global response against Covid-19: effective vaccines and faster, more convenient testing options, including affordable test-at-home kits. But these developments have uncovered a huge data privacy problem: How to securely manage and share proof that you have recently tested negative or that you have been properly vaccinated with entities like airlines and employers, without compromising the privacy of your healthcare data?
Skyflow for Healthcare: Transforming Healthcare through Privacy
The fully customizable solutions available immediately include:
- Skyflow for Covid-19 Testing: turn-key data privacy cloud for device manufacturers and end-to-end testing providers.
- Skyflow for Covid-19 Vaccination: turn-key data privacy cloud for organizations distributing and administering vaccines.
- Skyflow Skypass immunization passport: a web app that launches with a smartphone’s QR code reader to provide real-time proof of an individual’s testing and vaccination status.
Skyflow for Healthcare was one of the winning teams of the recently concluded U.S. Department of Health and Human Services design-a-thon. Unlike many other teams that focused on buzzwords like blockchain, Skyflow offered a solution built on tried and trusted cloud data platforms that can scale to meet the needs of the current crisis.
Seasoned Healthcare Team
Skyflow’s co-founder and CTO Prakash Khot is a long-time healthcare industry expert and former chief technology officer of AthenaHealth, the no. 1 cloud EHR company with data on over 100 million patients. Additionally, executive leaders from Salesforce and Oracle have built and scaled data platforms to millions of healthcare industry users and billions of data points.
What the HealthCare Industry is Saying
Fawad Butt, a 20-year data governance veteran with previous roles as chief data officer of United Healthcare and chief data governance officer of Kaiser Permanente, said:
“Anyone building any kind of software that handles healthcare data should be taking a hard look at Skyflow’s approach to protecting privacy. Skyflow’s data privacy vault and simple APIs give the healthcare industry what it has long needed a platform for quickly building powerful applications and workflows that allows for easy data exchange, with privacy and compliance built in. This has never been more important than now, during this pandemic, when privacy-preserving ways to share accurate information about people’s Covid status is critical to reopening our economy and our local communities.”
Jonathan Bush, chairman of Firefly Health and healthcare pioneer who founded AthenaHealth, said:
“Covid has accentuated the age-old Achilles heel of our healthcare system—lack of data sharing. Perhaps Skyflow’s patient-centric data privacy vault focused on testing and vaccination data will help catch us up. It’s certainly the right approach.”
