2020-09-17 08:17 ET - News Release

Mr. Joshua Bartch reports


Mydecine Innovations Group Inc.'s wholly owned subsidiary, Mindleap Health, has implemented a comprehensive information security rollout of next-generation cybersecurity solutions to meet Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act compliance standards. Mindleap also welcomes its new director of program management, Dyson Walker, who will support Mindleap in improving its platform and meeting and exceeding all relevant laws and regulations.

HIPAA compliance certification

The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act, also known as HIPAA, is U.S. legislation that provides security provisions to safeguard medical information. The Mindleap software development and security team has undergone a comprehensive multistep verification process to ensure full HIPAA compliance and adherence with the following regulations:

  • HIPAA privacy rule;
  • HIPAA security rule;
  • HITECH Act;
  • Omnibus rule;
  • Breach notification rule.

Mindleap chief technology officer Simon Abou-Antoun commented: "Mindleap recognizes the immense responsibility that comes with collecting, storing and managing personal data about users' mental health. Given the highly sensitive nature of this data, we owe it to ourselves, our users and our partners to establish secure processes and systems that protect users. Our system offers secure communication, is compliant with HIPAA and we are pleased to have implemented next-generation cybersecurity platforms to ensure maximum protection of our users' data."

Next-generation cybersecurity implementation

Mindleap has put together a comprehensive and fully operational security strategy and rollout to ensure administrative, physical and technical safeguards are in place in order to protect the confidentiality, integrity and availability of its sensitive data, including, without limitation, protected health information.

The next-generation security solutions include virus and exploit protection, encryption, network security, e-mail security as well as a system for secure communication that protects the integrity of ePHI (electronic personal health information) and a system of monitoring communications containing ePHI to prevent accidental or malicious breaches. Mindleap's policies for securing data are following established and modern health care protocols all while being able to provide a secure and seamless service to clients.

Chief compliance officer Dyson Walker

Mr. Walker is a proven information technology professional with a wide range of experience managing large, complex projects in Europe, Asia and North America. Mr. Walker has spent over 15 years in the Canadian health system, 10 of which entailed working the British Columbia Ministry of Health, provincial telehealth office (PTO), whose mandate was to support the expansion of telehealth in the province. During Mr. Walker's tenure at the ministry, some of his major achievements were:

  • Successfully represented the government of British Columbia on two federal pan-Canadian telehealth initiatives with participation by 12 of the 13 Canadian jurisdictions. Each initiative resulted in signed national agreements with major vendors and significantly accelerated the expansion of telehealth in Canada;
  • Worked extensively with B.C. first nations and local health authorities to support improved health care access via telehealth to their rural, underserved communities. Mr. Walker was engaged with first nations executive leadership at the federal, provincial and community levels. These first-nations-led initiatives resulted in improved health outcomes;
  • Acted as program manager for the $52-million home health monitoring enabling services (HHMES) initiative, a public, private partnership (PPP) between the B.C. government and Telus. HHMES comprised six provincial technology projects that would accelerate adoption and expansion of telehealth in the province. As program manager, Mr. Walker was responsible for four of the six projects with an estimated value of $20-million.

Mindleap founder and chief executive officer Nikolai Vassev commented: "We have taken every step and precaution in guaranteeing privacy and confidentiality on our platform and are incredibly pleased with the progress our security and compliance team have made in such a short time. We are also thrilled to have an experienced executive like Dyson Walker and lead our efforts in improving our platform."
