Secure File Transfer Assists Healthcare Organisations Gain Compliance

Accellion : 04 November, 2010  (Application Story)
The requirements of the HIPAA regulations are being met by healthcare operators with the help of Secure File Transfer from Accellion
HIPAA regulations and the HITECH Act place stringent requirements on the sharing of personal health information (PHI) by healthcare organizations. To ensure the necessary security and encryption technologies are in place when sharing PHI and other confidential information, healthcare organizations are selecting Accellion Secure File Transfer.

"With an estimated 10,000 documents sent and received via Accellion each month, the solution has become a vital part of our business operations, saving us an immense amount of time and money," said Bill Navarrette, CIO, Primoris Provider Network. "Given the sensitive nature of the information we are dealing with - birth certificates, social security cards, medical malpractice information, etc. - it is essential that we have the necessary tools in place to ensure confidentiality. Using Accellion we can be confident information remains secure and compliance mandates are being met."

"Sharing patient information and medical research electronically has become a common practice in the healthcare industry. With the introduction of stricter compliance regulations, healthcare organizations find the need for a secure file transfer solution is elevated," said Yorgen Edholm, president and CEO of Accellion. "Accellion Secure File Transfer provides the necessary layers of security, file tracking and reporting that healthcare organizations require for demonstrating compliance. Because Accellion is simple to use, adoption rates among users are very high."

The Accellion secure managed file transfer solution allows healthcare organizations to securely send and receive files and folders up to 50GB in size. With unmatched encryption and authentication checkpoints, it validates recipients so confidential information is not overexposed. Accellion Secure File Transfer also provides a comprehensive audit trail of who received a file and when. Accellion's managed file transfer solution integrates both on-premise and off-premise deployment options for cloud and virtual environments that work together seamlessly.
