Resilient Network Systems, a San Francisco-based startup focused on providing secure methods of transferring patient data, receives one of five grants issued by the National Strategy for Trusted Identities in Cyberspace (NSTIC) program to startups capable of furthering innovative pilot programs for managing online identity.

Stemming from a 2011 initiative issued by the Obama administration calling for the deployment of a standardized online identification system for consumers,  the NSTIC program has awarded the grants to the top five applicants among a pool of more than 150.

A wide variety of industries were represented among the selections, including healthcare, retail, banking, government, and education. Rather than issuing grants to foster development of technologies, the NSTIC issued the grants to companies with cutting edge technologies that could be expanded to service entire sectors.

Resilient has developed a secure trust network to address scalability of health information exchanges.

“All the traditional solutions out there trying to do health information exchange are really about point-to-point integrations, which doesn’t scale well on a national level, or Software-as-a-Service approaches, which can have trust and security issues.” – Kirk Lovener, CEO of Resilient Network Systems.

This grant follows a $5 million series A funding round in 2011 that the company promised to use to move healthcare online. Resilient Network Systems developed a cloud-based distribution model that allows data owners to authorize sharing and distribution of information.
