KoolSpan’s Mobile Security Continuity Solutions Are Key to Ensuring Privacy and Security in an Increasingly Connected Healthcare Infrastructure
Bethesda, MD and Orlando, FL (February 4, 2014) — KoolSpan Inc will participate at the upcoming 2014 Annual HIMSS Conference & Exhibition, Feb. 23-27 in Orlando, FL. alongside healthcare IT consulting firm Matrix Ingenuity, Inc. in booth 409.
Recognized as one of the premier conferences in the healthcare industry, KoolSpan representatives will be on-site to demonstrate its suite of patented mobile security applications and answer questions from healthcare providers or organizations looking for security continuity across their entire communications and data infrastructure, including smartphones, iPhones, office network phones, tablets, laptops, PCs and servers.
“The promise of connectivity in healthcare is immense, fostering unparalleled access and communication between clinicians, hospitals, and patients – but the healthcare industry is satiated with sensitive information and healthcare organizations face some of the most stringent security requirements regarding protecting patients’ privacy,” said Francis Knott, SVP of KoolSpan. “Hardware encryption, like KoolSpan’s is the strongest form of delivering the most secure connection to anyone who is concerned for the safety and protection of patient privacy.”
The company will showcase its TrustText® secure messaging platform that allows health care professionals to send encrypted, HIPAA-compliant information, to patients in a rapid, discrete fashion. This can include standard appointment reminders, lab results, payment reminders and other messages. The TrustText technology is provided via the KoolSpan TrustChip® – the hardware anchor for KoolSpan’s entire suite of applications.

A self-contained, secure, military-grade, microSD encryption engine, TrustChip provides the highest level of security and encryption, enabling businesses, enterprises, financial professionals, governments and individuals to protect against increasing threats to mobile voice communications and data assets.
