Rackspace® (RAX) recently declared that National Kidney Registry (NKR), the leading paired kidney exchange program in the United States, is using Rackspace Managed Security and Compliance Assistance for its Rackspace Dedicated environment. With cloud managed security services and active defense from Rackspace, NKR operates its donor database with a high level of security that is crucial to protecting patient health information (PHI) and achieving Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPPA) compliance standards.
Founded in 2007, NKR facilitates life-saving kidney transplants through a national kidney paired exchange program (KPD). This process aims to overcome donor-recipient incompatibility by swapping kidneys between multiple donor-recipient pairs to create a chain of donations. Since its inception, NKR has facilitated more than 1,850 kidney swaps in more than 400 donor chains.
The company originally stored depersonalized patient data to ensure that important patient health information was not compromised. However, NKR soon realized the need to build a more robust database that included basic patient information like personal contact details in order to increase the efficiency of its transplant system. It turned to Rackspace for expertise in security and compliance, in addition to a dedicated environment that would provide optimal uptime and performance.
“High availability and security are mission critical to an organization like National Kidney Registry,” said Joe Sinacore, director of education and development at NKR. “If our databases go down, it can derail the matching process and logistics of an entire chain donation, which can put multiple kidneys, and moreover, multiple lives on the line. Knowing that our Rackspace team is there to assist maintain uptime in addition to rapidly detect and respond to any security threats 24x7x365 is crucial.”
