Innovation in health technologies more important than ever
It is more important than ever to create innovative healthcare software quickly, as patient expectations for digital solutions increase and patience with old-fashioned systems deteriorates. Additionally, the pandemic has shown that well-designed and rapidly deployed applications can play a key role in helping the healthcare system connect and communicate, and manage crises.
Until now, developers have faced a difficult and time-consuming challenge when building these applications: how to manage highly sensitive and highly regulated health data in an ever-changing regulatory environment. They had to either invest time and effort in building their own DIY systems or rely on a complex patchwork of point solutions, each solving only one side of the problem.
“The world urgently needs more innovations from the healthcare technology industry. We all want these innovators to move quickly, but not at the expense of patient privacy, ”said Anshu Sharma, CEO and co-founder of Skyflow. “We created the Healthcare Data Privacy Vault to help healthcare technology developers grow rapidly, knowing that Skyflow will manage data privacy, security and compliance. “
“Skyflow’s patient-centric data privacy vault is the right approach,” said Jonathan Bush, president of Firefly Health and former CEO of AthenaHealth.
A radically sensible approach to health data privacy
Skyflow’s new health data privacy vault offers a better way. Inspired by the data vaults built in-house by companies like Apple, Google and Netflix that spend tens of millions of dollars on privacy, Skyflow has built a zero-trust data vault that any healthcare tech company can put into production in hours or days. Development teams can create a Skyflow Vault in their applications at the data layer.
The Healthcare Vault has been specially designed for healthcare data. “HIPAA 18” PHI privacy data types, including common health data fields such as patient names, social security numbers, driver’s license numbers, insurance details, medical record numbers and dates of birth are integrated into the customizable scheme. Additionally, the vault was created with healthcare technology workflows in mind, with secure cloud functions and pre-built integrations to support the most common uses of healthcare data.
Healthcare Vault ensures data security through a unique polymorphic encryption approach: data is divided into components and encrypted using different techniques. All sensitive data is isolated via a virtual private cloud (VPC), and a comprehensive policy-based access control system ensures that data is only used or shared as intended. The safe tokenizes, anonymizes and / or automatically writes specific data according to the rules defined by the security team. The API-first design ensures that Skyflow can fit into any architecture, including legacy systems.
One Vault solves many problems
The Data Privacy Vault approach provides a complete solution, addressing all of the major challenges associated with PII data privacy, including:
Secure data sharing
Encryption / Tokenization
Delivered via a simple REST API, Skyflow can be deployed in a few hours or days.

Founded in 2019, Skyflow is a privacy safe for sensitive data. Our founders wanted to radically transform the way companies manage their users’ financial, health and other personal data, the data that powers the digital economy. Inspired by the data vaults that leaders like Apple and Netflix built to manage customer data, our vision was to deliver the same kind of data privacy vault that a simple and elegant API, something that any developer could easily integrate into their application, the same way they use Stripe, Twilio or Okta. Skyflow is based in Palo Alto, California, with offices in Bangalore, India. For more information visit http://www.skyflow.com or follow Twitter and LinkedIn.
