What Is Secure Email?

Secure email means that emails with sensitive information in them are encrypted, meaning they are not sent through “open” email channels. Instead the email goes to a secure portal where the email recipient must log in to view the email content.

Why Should I Care?

Passage of the HITECH Act extended HIPPA requirements — for the first time — beyond doctors, hospitals and health insurers to include service providers to the health care industry (such as insurance brokers and agencies). Enforcement of the new law began in February 2010. Infractions, depending on the severity, can result in fines ranging from $100 to $50,000 for each violation.

In order to protect your clients’ information and stay in compliance with this new law, SMS has implemented a secure email solution from Zix Corporation, which automatically encrypts any emails with sensitive information in them.
