Box to Support HHS Cloud Content Management Efforts

The Department of Health and Human Services has selected content cloud firm Box to support the organization’s secure collaboration and critical processes for health services delivery and to promote new ways to work in the cloud.

Box did not disclose the value of its contract with the HHS but said the department chose its cloud content management platform.

Officials are currently rethinking how the HHS takes advantage of technology to fulfill its mission and modernize its systems to function as a digital-first agency, Box said.

The Redwood City, California-headquartered firm is offering its digital business suite to HHS, whose mission is to improve Americans’ health and well-being.

The department is working on its mission by delivering health and human services and by promoting advances in medicine, public health and social services.

Box’s digital business suite will be used to manage logistics involved in the distribution of COVID-19 vaccines.

The HHS will also use Box Governance and Shield to secure and classify content, as well as Box Relay to foster automated workflows that will boost the delivery of health services.

Additionally, Box said that its platform will help the health department accommodate sharing of large files and have real-time access to information for internal and external collaborators.

According to Box CEO Aaron Levie, the HHS is “leading the way” on how government agencies are using modern technology to better serve the needs of Americans and enhance mission outcomes.

The department’s investment in a cloud strategy, which includes its partnership with Box, will help provide “effective health services” to Americans while protecting sensitive information, Levie, who co-founded the firm, noted.
