HIPAA compliant. Communication compliant.
We help you focus on what really matters.
Agosto empowers leading healthcare industry clients to delivering secure, real-time communication across employee groups. Using cloud-based productivity solutions from Google, we help healthcare providers to easily collaborate and focus on the important work that they provide in our communities.
Data ownership, uptime and security
If you use Google productivity tools, you still own your data. Always. And with Google Apps for Work and Google Drive for Work, Google guarantees a 99.9% uptime service level agreement (SLA) so healthcare organizations can depend on providing the access needed for their offices, mobile care providers, and staff across town or across the country.
Plus, Google Drive for Work and its data centers are SSAE 16 / ISAE 3402 Type II, SOC 2-audited and ISO 27001 certified, some of the highest standards in certification.
It's no surprise that healthcare organizations need to confirm how cloud providers like Google can access and share data. For those organizations that must meet the requirements of the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) it's actually easy to meet compliance. Under HIPAA, some personal patient information with regard to health and services is classified as Protected Health Information or PHI. If your organization is governed by HIPAA and you intend to use Google Apps for Work or Google Drive for Work with PHI, you'll be required to sign a Business Associate Agreement (BAA) with Google. As a Google for Work Premier Partner, Agosto understands the level of trust needed to proceed with this kind of agreement. Contact us for more information.
eDiscovery tools and auditing capabilities included in Google Drive for Work help healthcare companies to meet regulatory compliance standards as well to get rid of redundant systems.
Plus, files that are uploaded to Google Drive are always encrypted. Everything you upload from a desktop or mobile device to Google, while it is in transit between Google data centers, or while it is at rest on Google servers, is encrypted. Everything.
Google Drive for Work also enables healthcare organization administrators to audit and report across a domain. You'll be able to manage the sharing settings for your company data, and then preserve/retain that data, even when an employee leaves the organization. Further, you will be able to track the files your employees upload, create, and share, to be sure that security policies are being followed to the letter.
Healthcare organizations recognize the value of the included video chat as a new way for patients and doctors to communicate, too. Team members can work from anywhere, collaborating from the road or from home, which is essential for any company.
With Google Drive for Work there’s also no longer any need to maintain an inbox quota, archive old emails, or save the important ones on your desktop. The secure file storage is unlimited and even files as large as 5 TB can be uploaded at once.
