Whether you are a covered entity or business associate, the changes to HIPAA through the HITECH Act certainly has your attention. While the predominant compliance burden is HIPAA, many organizations also face state regulatory and Red Flags and PCI requirements, among others. The burden of complying with regulations is stressful, but the cost of one breach of electronic protected health information (ePHI) is too high to ignore.
One breach could result in government fines, legal fees and costs associated with notification and personal protection. Impacting your organization even more is the loss of reputation with patients and partners. As the most trusted email encryption brand in healthcare, ZixCorp understands this reality.
For the last 10 years, ZixCorp has established itself as the proven leader, delivering email encryption in a software-as-a-service (SaaS) architecture and meeting the email encryption needs of the most trusted brands in healthcare, including WellPoint, more than 30 Blue Cross Blue Shield organizations and one in every five U.S. hospitals.
Healthcare organizations and their business associates need to be mindful of the critical role email plays in their day-to-day operations. The insecure nature of email combined with its inherent high volume of traffic makes it particularly susceptible for HIPAA-related violations. This reliance on email should inevitably place it at the top of the healthcare compliance checklist.
