A new cloud storage option is now available for all OHSU faculty, staff and students. It’s called Box and it works a lot like other cloud storage systems including Dropbox, Google Drive and Microsoft’s OneDrive. These types of services allow you to store your files so you can get to them from anywhere and share them with anyone. Box offers similar functionality, but with added protections in place for OHSU confidential and restricted data or protected health information. OHSU and Box have entered into a Business Associate Agreement that meets all of policy compliance requirements. This represents a first step down a new storage and collaboration path which fits with OHSU’s data protection goals.
Update – Note that this really is a first step: storage size is limited to 10 GB, with no requests for additional capacity accepted.
If you do not have an existing Box account under your OHSU email address, go to ohsu.box.com, click Continue and enter your OHSU network credentials.
If you already have a Box account that uses your OHSU email address, you should have received an email notifying you of the coming conversion of your account to an OHSU enterprise account.
