Greg Kaczmarek, Information Security Officer at the Crystal Clinic Orthopaedic Center, needed a means for doctors affiliated with them to transport PHI between locations. The solution needed to be easy-to-use and operating system-independent while also adhering to strict HIPAA requirements. Part of their challenge was to ensure that doctors had encrypted data to maintain PHI privacy while also allowing them to download patient information from medical devices not powered by the Windows operating system.

Crystal Clinic used the BT Drives to allow doctors to safely move PHI from one location to another. They enhanced drive security by adding on the Remote Management Console, enabling them to further restrict when and where drives could be used. Doctors then had a user-friendly solution to move PHI, while security officers with the Center could ensure that HIPAA mandates and Crystal Clinic data security policies were met.
