Protecting patient data requires HIPAA compliant email technology

For healthcare organizations, adopting HIPAA compliant email technology not only simplifies compliance but can streamline the tasks involved in protecting patient data from security threats as well as malicious and inadvertent data leaks.

HIPAA, or the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act, provides a set of standards for organizations as well as vendors and partners that may need to access protected health information (PHI) and personally identifiable information (PII) during the process of delivering care. Because email is so ubiquitous in healthcare communications and because it is constantly under attack from malicious individuals seeking to steal lucrative patient data, HIPAA security rules stipulate that organizations must take steps for protecting PII and PHI in email.

A HIPAA compliant email system must control access to email data through proper authentication, protect the security of email during transmission, ensure that email data is not improperly altered or destroyed, and maintain audit controls that record the access and use of data in email.

When seeking to quickly and easily implement HIPAA compliant email technology, more healthcare organizations turn to solutions from Mimecast.
