Healthcare Information Privacy & PHI Security

Virtru enables secure, HIPAA compliant PHI sharing to support digital healthcare services and improve patient outcomes.


Enable HIPAA Compliant Healthcare Information Security with End-to-End Encryption

Advances in modern medical technology and information systems have transformed the healthcare industry. Many care scenarios require immediate access to protected health information, so providers often use email and file systems to share it—making email and file protection a centerpiece of any HIPAA compliance program.

While these trends ultimately allow distributed healthcare provider teams to more easily coordinate care and keep their patients engaged, they also bring significant risks to patient confidentiality. Multi-cloud environments that support digital care delivery leave protected health information (PHI) at risk of exposure, raising concerns regarding patient confidentiality and compliance with the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA).

With persistent data protection and granular access controls, Virtru empowers healthcare organizations to unlock the power of PHI, and maintain control, wherever it is shared. Using Virtru, you can:

  • Enable remote care providers and support digital patient engagement with easy-to-use PHI protection that ensures HIPAA compliance.
  • Use protected email and encrypted files to communicate with patients and external providers, when sharing PHI via fax and other offline methods isn’t possible or practical.
  • Expedite care delivery with easy-to-use protections, seamless recipient access, and a quick installation process that gets users up and running in minutes.

Virtru’s security program and controls are also aligned with the security standards that informed and are required by the HITRUST certification program. Virtru implementations follow the requirements from HIPAA and HITECH security & breach rules to ensure PHI protection.

“My favorite part is that I can have the encryption service as a default email setting in Gmail – because of this, I have never forgotten to encrypt an email containing private health information.”
