Addresses Growing Challenge of HIPAA and MU2 Secure Data Delivery Compliance

 

MORRISTOWN, N.J. – November 12, 2013 – DataMotion (www.datamotion.com), innovators in cloud-based email encryption services, today announced a group purchasing agreement with GNYHA Services, an acute care group purchasing organization affiliated with Premier, Inc. that represents more than 300 acute care hospitals and over 1,500 healthcare-related facilities. The agreement offers GNYHA Services members easy-to-use encryption services for delivering email and files securely. Under the agreement, GNYHA Services members can take advantage of discounted rates for DataMotion SecureMail, SecureMail Gateway, Secure File Transfer, SecureMail Automation, SecureContact and DataMotion Direct encryption services, all of which can help reduce costs and enable HIPAA and Meaningful Use Stage 2 (MU2) compliant secure data transfer.

“Our members are hyperaware of privacy regulations and compliance issues. With increased enforcement coming from the final HIPAA omnibus rule, combined with ongoing data breach vigilance, GNYHA Services’ goal is to help our members find cost–effective data compliance solutions,” said the Senior Vice President of Strategic Contracting Services for GNYHA Services, Jeffrey Ashkenase. “With its emphasis on ease-of-use and strong encryption, DataMotion is an important addition to our health technology contract portfolio.”

Exchanging Protected Health Information (PHI) through unencrypted email is out of compliance with HIPAA/HITECH regulations and exposes providers to unnecessary risk. All DataMotion solutions enable compliant HIPAA data exchange, and provide detailed tracking and reporting for auditing purposes.

Benefits to GNYHA Services members include:

  • Exceptional ease-of-use for senders and recipients, reducing the need for IT support.
  • Fully optimized mobile experience with no app required.
  • Encryption that works within existing email systems.
  • A self-service tool for exchanging large files such as images and transition of care records.
  • Reduced costs through lower overnight delivery, fax and printing charges.

“Our email and file encryption solutions are especially well suited for healthcare organizations’ need to send PHI securely,” said the CEO of DataMotion, Bob Bales. “Just as strong encryption is vital to protecting information, ease-of-use ensures our solutions are utilized. We are pleased these attributes differentiate our products and that leaders such as GNYHA Services continue to make us a part of their health IT offerings.”
