Talking rocket surgery: Kryptiq lands secure communications for NASA flight surgeons
Hillsboro-based Kryptiq has always had high hopes for improving physician-client communications. But now those high hopes are reaching thermospheric levels. Or exospheric. Or whatever.
Enough of the fancy words. Suffice it to say that Kryptiq has landed a new client that means they’ll be flying high, for sure. With astronauts and stuff. You see, Kryptiq’s newest customer is the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA).
NASA flight surgeons are using Kryptiq’s Connect IQ suite to digitally send and share health data with their colleagues and patients. With more streamlined, efficient collaboration, this also reduces operational costs and making its remote data capture more coordinated and secure.
According to the release, the solution is anything but rocket science. It’s employing common secure electronic communications to exchange information between patient and physician—thereby eliminating the dead tree paper chase of healthcare conversations. Or as Kryptiq says, “the technology includes familiar, Internet-based technologies such as secure messaging and online patient portals.”
Sometimes the most straightforward solution is the best solution. And landing NASA is certainly a win for the Hillsboro company.
