Box Opens Lid on Healthcare Space

April 29, 2013

boxVenture Beat reports that cloud storage startup Box is pushing into the healthcare vertical, regulatory challenges and all.

Box’s team has researched healthcare and ensures its product is HIPAA (Editor’s Note: Corrected from Venture Beat’s report, which had HIPAA misspelled as HIPPA) compliant. Box notes the challenges of reaching its target market — physicians and health administrators who tread carefully when it comes to new cloud-based technologies.

“We want Box to be the cloud solution to manage all content in the health care sector,” Box CEO Aaron Levie told Venture Beat. Levie lists the many uses for Box; physicians can use it to access medical information from iPads, and researchers can use it to collaborate and to share sensitive information.

Over the year, Box sales in the healthcare industry grew 81 percent, the company said. The company claims to have hundreds of customers in healthcare, including Henry Ford Health System, Beaumont Health System, HealthTrust Europe, and Johns Hopkins HealthCare Solutions.
