Medical Imaging PACS Security: What to Look for?

Are You Storing Your Patient Images and Data Securely?

A cloud-based picture archiving and communication system (PACS) can help medical practices transform the way they handle patient imaging. A cloud-based PACS allows clinicians to upload, share, and access patient images from any computer, mobile device, or tablet with an internet connection.

Why Is HIPAA Important?

Safeguarding patient data is the healthcare provider’s responsibility. Ensuring that processes and systems are compliant with HIPAA and other regulations protects both the patient and the provider. The HIPAA Privacy Rule lays out stringent safeguards to keep health information private, setting limits and conditions on the use and disclosure of certain information without patient authorization. When choosing a PACS storage solution, your provider must be HIPAA compliant to ensure maximum patient data security.

How to Check Your PACS Security Robustness?

Another way to ensure your PACS provider can provide reliable data security is to check their internal privacy policy. UltraLinQ uses Secure HTTP (HTTPS), TLS, and AES 256-bit encryption when transmitting sensitive data. This ensures that private information cannot be read while it is being transmitted over the internet. In addition to data encryption, ensuring secure cloud data storage is critical.
It is good practice to ask your potential cloud-PACS provider what regulatory certifications they have. At UltraLinQ, we assure data security by maintaining regional and international industry certifications, including:

  • FDA 510(K)
  • ISO 13485
  • ISO 27001
  • SOC 2 TYPE 1
  • SOC 2 TYPE 2
  • UKCA
  • CYBER ESSENTIALS PLUS

We strive to provide our clients a robust, compliant platform where they can securely upload, view, interpret, report, store, and share patient exams from any location quickly and efficiently.
