Ensure Compliance with European Data Privacy and Healthcare Regulations Using Virtru

Protect PHI and PII wherever it’s shared to meet compliance requirements and deliver better care outcomes.

Healthcare providers need quick access to health data, and while cloud collaboration improves accessibility, it also increases risks for data loss and patient confidentiality breaches. The security of personal data is an essential part of compliance with European healthcare privacy regulations, such as Hébergeur de Données de Santé (HDS) and Commission Nationale Informatique & Libertés (CNIL), backed up by the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).

Under these regulations, providers and partners are required to encrypt protected health information (PHI) and personally identifiable information (PII) throughout digital workflows—such as email and file sharing—in order to protect patient confidentiality. Without the required level of protection, data is at increased risk of misuse and abuse. In fact, 65% of patients would consider changing providers in the event of a breach, highlighting the importance of patient confidentiality.

Virtru makes compliance and patient confidentiality easy by putting you in full control of PHI and PII shared across cloud environments, applications, and devices, while enabling seamless access that improves care delivery. Integrated with tools you already use like Gmail, Google Drive, and Microsoft Outlook, Virtru ensures PHI and PII stay protected throughout the course of care.
