When a healthcare provider needs to send time-critical forms or patient data to another organization, it demands that the information will arrive quickly, in full and most importantly, securely.
(PRWEB) November 17, 2010
Web privacy seal awarded ahead of HIPAA & HITECH.
SecureCare Technologies, Inc., an Austin-based provider of smart technology that enables messaging and document exchange for the healthcare sector, has announced that TRUSTe® has certified the privacy practices of Sfax, an industry-leading web-based secure faxing service, enabling it to display the TRUSTe Web Privacy Seal.
Aleks Szymanski, CEO and Director of SecureCare said, “The final rules on the HIPAA and HITECH are expected in early 2011 and they are expected to be even more stringent around PHI. Data security and privacy issues are becoming more important and those companies who are complacent will be dealt with severely. We are delighted to have received this endorsement from such a trusted third party, as it demonstrates our commitment to transparency and accountability - the foundations of privacy.”
For over ten years, SecureCare has been committed to ensuring the highest standards of data security and privacy, something of critical importance within the healthcare sector - where the company has the majority of its clients.
Aleks Szymanski continued, “When a healthcare provider needs to send time-critical forms or patient data to another organization, it demands that the information will arrive quickly, in full and most importantly, securely. When it comes to PHI, there is no room for error. The TRUSTe certification confirms our commitment to the very highest standards of privacy and security and with the ongoing monitoring and evaluation processes that TRUSTe require, it is also a commitment that will give our clients additional confidence in the future.”
Designed originally for healthcare, SecureCare also caters for a variety of other industries, including financial services, insurance, legal, logistics, manufacturing and retail. SecureCare’s products already meet the compliance requirements for the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA), Sarbanes-Oxley (SOX) and Graham-Leach-Bliley (GLB). Sfax is the companies’ flagship product. It eliminates manual faxing and replaces costly and troublesome fax servers by removing the laborious process of printing, signing, re-faxing or scanning into an application – all with a complete audit trail. It enables the user to handle more faxes at a lower cost with a smaller workforce while getting the ‘peace of mind’ of a proven secure faxing solution.
