HIPAA email compliance
Electronic Protected Health Information (ePHI) is extremely sensitive, confidential patient data that, according to both state and federal regulations, must be kept secure, regardless of whether it is stored, transmitted, or transferred. If these policies aren’t followed by a covered business or its associates (including their subcontractors), severe penalties of up to $1,500,000 per year may be imposed upon that business.
A single breach into your unprotected system may now result in heftier fines, client reparation costs, and most importantly, the biggest casualty of them all being your business’ reputation.
Our HIPAA compliant email solution, which includes both the secure portal and Microsoft Outlook plug-in, is the next step in compliance, helping your business avoid overwhelming fines.
Instill trust in your clients and your employees by implementing a secure email encryption solution that helps your business maintain both its required level of security and its integrity.
