Truyo and Egnyte Launch COVID-Related Health Data Collection and Privacy Compliance Solution
Health-Check Management with Egnyte enables businesses to automate all compliance regulations that store sensitive employee health information, including COVID vaccination compliance
PHOENIX and MOUNTAIN VIEW, CA. (November 17, 2021)
Truyo, the leader in truly automated consent and data privacy rights management, and Egnyte, a leader in cloud content security and governance, today announced a new solution – Health-Check Management – to empower businesses of any size to efficiently and securely collect and maintain employee COVID-related information in accordance with the Occupational Safety and Health Administration’s (OSHA’s) impending emergency temporary standard and the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid’s (CMS’s) new interim final rule.
Even with ongoing debate about OSHA’s standard, legal consultants see the need for ample preparation. “There’s no doubt at least some form of a mandate will be enacted, whether it’s at the state or federal level,” said Michael Hellbusch, Partner at Rutan & Tucker, LLP. “As soon as systems move from voluntary to mandatory, it means mandatory use of some kind of vaccine credentialing system will be required. Companies will need to prepare now.”
Health-Check Management’s partnerships are in preparation for impending mandates that will require coronavirus vaccinations or weekly testing of workers for organizations with 100 employees or more. Similarly, CMS would impose vaccine requirements for facilities that participate in Medicare and Medicaid programs. Health-Check Management, which is powered by Truyo’s privacy platform, in partnership with Egnyte, automates collection of employee vaccination status and testing results and maintains the personal health information in Egnyte’s secure environment to facilitate privacy compliance.
“This is an incredibly complex time for employers who are now confronted with having to collect and store highly sensitive health-related information on their employees,” said Dan Clarke, president of Truyo. “The impending mandates have a lot of employers worried about how to manage and protect this information, which they haven’t previously had to worry about. This goes well beyond simply collecting vaccination statuses or test results. Employers will now have exemption-related personal information that could allow an organizational user to make additional inferences about an employee’s health or religious status––and this has a lot of organizations concerned because it increases exposure to breach notification risks.”
Health-Check Management, co-developed with Intel and powered by Truyo and Egnyte, enables organizations to:
- Set levels of access and restrict access to sensitive medical information
- Address immediate risks from potential insider threats
- Maintain sensitive health information in a secure environment
- Adapt to data retention policies, per mandates
- Easily produce reports, as needed
- Immutably log data access
- Mitigate privacy risk
“This is extremely sensitive information and storing it is going to become a major challenge for most companies, especially since most are not equipped to collect and maintain the data,” said Jeff Sizemore, Chief Governance Officer at Egnyte. “Most haven’t had to deal with this type of medically sensitive information in the history of their operations. There’s a lot more to consider beyond simply collecting this information from a submission form or email.”
The solution is available on a flexible monthly subscription starting at $250/month for up to 500 employees. To learn more about the Truyo + Egnyte Health-Check Management solution, visit https://bit.ly/health-check-mandate-solution.
