Benefits of EFT for Healthcare
Ensure compliance throughout your organization
Healthcare organizations are subject to a number of regulations, specifically HIPAA, HITECH and PCI DSS. EFT for Healthcare is designed to help facilitate compliance by providing encryption for better data protection, complete visibility over data through a centralized platform, and improved accuracy and reliability with automated data transfers.
Safeguard sensitive healthcare data
EFT for Healthcare encryption safeguards your data as it’s transferred and while it’s stored. The EFT High Security module, along with EFT’s DMZ Gateway®, helps organizations comply with data storage requirements—including not storing data in the network DMZ— using repository encryption and securely sanitizing (wiping) deleted data so that it cannot be reconstituted. The Content Integrity Control module for EFT processes files with anti-virus or data-loss prevention tools to prevent sensitive data from leaving your network.
Easy for end users, secure for you
Data security policies are only as good as an end user’s compliance. If the secure file transfer solution is not intuitive and easy to use, end users will look to other less secure methods to transfer sensitive data. From easy web browsers to secure mobile access for BYOD security, to secure, large file sharing via email, EFT for Healthcare provides a full range of HIPAA secure data exchange options to choose from, ensuring end-user acceptance of your policies.

Healthcare Secure File Transfer Resources
By implementing a HIPAA secure file transfer solutions, PeaceHealth has been able to merge disparate file transfer methods while improving security and compliance procedures.
In the healthcare industry, the handling of particularly sensitive information is a normal daily occurrence. However, internal mechanisms for processing and handling data do not generally offer a user friendly and secure method for exchanging that information with patients or third parties.
A Chicago-based hospital lacked a reliable and efficient infrastructure to handle the high volume of sensitive data moving internally throughout the institution. Additionally, they regularly exchanged data with insurance companies, hospital vendors, and business partners.
