Product Security Assessment
Carestream Health has recognized that healthcare informatics’ requires a consistent approach in the product design stage to address privacy and security requirements. Carestream Health has taken extensive steps to harden the Windows and Solaris Operating Systems and to secure system access beyond the vendors default configuration. These steps include removal or disabling services, accounts, and ports that are not required for clinical operation. During product development standard testing procedures using vulnerability scanners are used to analyze the device for security vulnerabilities and assessing the configuration against National Security Agency (NSA) Hardening Guidelines, as well as requirements specified in security regulations.
To our customers, Carestream Health provides documentation below of our product security assessments.

The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) was signed into law August 21, 1996. This legislation affects nearly everyone involved in healthcare from providers to healthcare information systems vendors. HIPAA contains provisions for:
- Portability of insurance coverage as employees move from one employer to another.
- Protection of patient-identifiable data from inappropriate disclosure and the type of information that must be protected and the circumstances.
- Defined policies, analyses, practices, and mechanisms that must be conducted to ensure the privacy of “protected health information” (PHI) is maintained.
- Government-mandated standards for electronic transactions, code sets and identifiers.
