Security, compliance major concerns

Eliminate data risk leak easily, efficiently


Given the ever-increasing volume of patient medical information being sent electronically, the security of email communications is a major concern for all healthcare organizations and facilities. Compliance with healthcare regulations (such as HIPAA and HIPAA Omnibus) requires healthcare organizations to ensure that sensitive digital transmissions across public networks are secure from risk.

Medical files, billing and insurance records, prescription information and payment details are among the types of information that can be comprised. Protecting this data is crucial as part of your healthcare organization’s compliance strategy.

The costs and complexities of managing encryption in-house can be daunting. Fortunately, new technologies such as Echoworx’s suite of email encryption solutions are eliminating the risk of data leakage, while providing efficiency, ease of use and interoperability.

A policy-based encryption solution scans outbound email on the healthcare facility premises or in the cloud, based on established policies. Built-in HIPAA oriented dictionaries search through email and its attachments to identify elements at risk, such as social security numbers, drug codes, patient names, etc. and then automatically encrypt when required, eliminating human error.


Administrators can define HIPAA oriented policies around company confidential data that is being shared over the Internet. Automated encryption based on defined business rules will become an essential part of HIPAA compliance moving forward. The OneWorld policy engine includes a number of pre-loaded HIPAA policies and regular expressions.

Ease of use

Ease of use

IT managers can use a Web-based console to know what email is going out, the criticality and nature of the data and who is sending it; as well as set, review and customize privacy policies so confidential contents are automatically encrypted. This enables them to easily identify potential data breaches and apply the appropriate safeguards. OneWorld policy-based encryption won’t disrupt the day-to-day workflow of employees, as no training is required. It provides a consistent, highly secure, and integrated user experience on both desktop and mobile devices for healthcare customers and employees.
