Home Data Macquarie Cloud launches healthcare data protection solution

Macquarie Cloud Services, a division of Macquarie Telecom Group, has developed LaunchHealth Cloud, a purpose-built solution to enhance data protection for the healthcare sector.

Macquarie says the solution has been developed in response to a policy decision by the Department of Human Services designed to protect the integrity of people’s data entrusted to the Department.

The DHS policy applies to third-party software connecting with the Department to deliver online services, such as electronic claims payments for Medicare.

According to Macquarie Cloud, the solution ensures Australians can benefit from easy and convenient access to government health services, using digital technologies without compromising the security of their private information.

Macquarie says its "built-for-government" secure cloud was designed from the ground up to meet the most rigorous security requirements, and has achieved the "gold standard" accreditation for security by being listed in the Certified Cloud Services List, controlled by the Australian Signals Directorate.

And Macquarie says the same infrastructure will now be available to private health sector providers.

The cloud environments connecting to the Department’s ICT systems are now mandated to meet the same standards of accreditation of those the Department applies to itself.

“This is a great example of leadership by a government agency, and of the way organisations with a good understanding of cyber security can drive change beyond their own business,” James Mystakidis, group executive, Macquarie Cloud Services, said.

“Through the updated policy, the DHS is demonstrating how it is possible to transform ICT while at the same time elevating cyber security standards.

“This is particularly relevant as there has been a lot of talk about how supply chains can create cyber security risks. This is an example of how the government can use its supply chains to push secure transformation through an industry.”
