Healthcare data breaches in the US cost organizations a total of $6 billion in 2014. Retrieved from Fifth Annual Benchmark Study on Privacy & Security of Healthcare Data, Ponemon Institute, May 2015, p. 1.
Cybercriminal attacks have been up by 125% since 2010, and 45% of healthcare organizations say that data breaches were due to criminal activity. The security of patient information is clearly being threatened, and the rates of cyber-attacks continues to increase.
Xahive is a cybersecurity company that was started after both founders were personally affected by data breaches of their medical records which left them feeling vulnerable and uncertain about their personal information being accessed.
They started Xahive in order to protect other patients by increasing levels of security in healthcare communication. Xahive aims at providing peace of mind to patients and healthcare professionals that their confidentiality will be upheld through its two services: a secure communication service that allows professionals to transmit messages and documents, and a privacy legislation compliance and cybersecurity threat assessment service.
Xahive is running a MedStartr campaign to upgrade our systems, software, and applications to Health Level Seven International (HL7) standards. This will enable our communications service to provide healthcare facilities with the best possible protection from cyber-attacks.
Xahive is looking to raise a total of $20,000 by December 31st, 2015. Based on the amount donated, backers will receive several of our cybersecurity products and services in return. They especially welcome donations from hospitals, healthcare professionals, patients and anyone who is concerned about secure healthcare communication.
