About

CancerIQ helps providers use genetic information to predict, pre-empt, and prevent disease - starting with cancer. CancerIQ helps leading health systems maximize the clinical and financial value of using genetics in routine care. Together we can help to detect and prevent the deadliest and earliest onset cancers.

The Challenge

In today's cloud-connected world, HIPAA compliance is tougher than ever. The old days of a few employees managing private health information (PHI) at one facility are over. The rise of digital healthcare startups means many more employees are responsible for protecting private health data, and remote work puts more of a burden on companies to ensure their employees are not risk vectors.

CancerIQ is “a small company with large clients'', so failing a HIPAA audit would prove disastrous. HIPAA compliance needs effective training to build best practices, testing to verify employees retained the information from training, and frequent re-training to make sure employees stay updated on evolving standards. For a growing company like CancerIQ, this can be an extremely time consuming process. Every minute spent in inefficient training with low retention rates is time better spent on carrying out the firm's mission.
