There are many benefits of using cloud storage for Physicians as has been documented prior on iMedicalApps.

Dropbox is a cloud service that iMedicalApps is a big fan of and has featured on our recent 20 best free iPhone apps for medical professionals.


There are now websites and apps that enable users to share and stores files on Dropbox, whilst adhering to HIPAA compliance.


Sookasa is one such service that was recently launched. Its users are provided with an encrypted folder within their Dropbox account and can securely share and collaborate on files with others. Sharing can be limited by providing keys to access files. Additionally, access to files and folders can be deauthorized whether they are shared via Dropbox or email.

Sookasa is free for private use. Businesses are charged $100 and upwards and are granted advanced features.

Below are a few of the other clients that allow for HIPAA compliant cloud storage and/or sharing of files.
