The National Institute of Standards and Technology has announced a fourth round of grant awards in support of the National Strategy for Trusted Identities in Cyberspace (NSTIC). One of the winners is HealthIDx, which is developing a privacy-enhancing technology that protects patients’ identity and information.
This project will pilot a “triple blind” technology where medical service providers have no knowledge of which credential service provider an end-user chooses, credential service providers have no knowledge of which medical service provider the end-user is visiting, and the identity broker has no knowledge — nor retains any information — about the transaction’s parties or contents.
Three pilot projects have been chosen in this NSTIC pilot round: Galois, HealthIDx, and MorphoTrust. In this podcast, Regarding ID’s Gina Jordan speaks with HealthIDx CEO Scott Lowry about his company’s $1.6 million, two-year pilot project to improve the security of medical information.
