Case Study: CMS Data-Sharing Project Highlights the Benefits of a Multiplatform Approach
Our client, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS), handles billions of healthcare payments and financing for numerous government programs. With a database containing sensitive and personal health information that is considered one of the largest in the world, CMS is subject to multiple compliance mandates, regulations, and reform provisions, such as OMB M-06-16, FIPS 140-2, and HIPAA. Exchanging this sensitive health information with a vast amount of partners was a daunting challenge for CMS, especially when those partners have many different operating platforms.
Working with Lockheed Martin in analyzing the IT security marketplace, CMS chose PKWARE’s SecureZIP PartnerLink™ as it exceeded compliance requirements, secured sensitive data during exchange with partners operating on multiple platforms, and could be deployed seamlessly without impacting external partners’ budgets.
