Secure Email Solutions for the Healthcare Industry

Healthcare Industry Challenges with Email Sending

By law, healthcare providers are required to safeguard client Protected Health Information (PHI). The major body of legislation that most healthcare providers are concerned with complying with is HIPAA. HIPAA is an acronym that stands for the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996. The act includes legislation specifying data privacy and security provisions for safeguarding personal medical information.

Because of HIPAA requirements, many people use secure email services and other secure data storing software to keep their medical records protected at all times. This helps insure compliance with HIPAA regulations. It's also a smart business practice.

All HIPAA covered entities, including healthcare plans, clearinghouses, and providers who transmit, store, and access electronic Protected Health Information (or ePHI), and any of their subcontractors, must comply with HIPAA regulations.
