Protect PHI and PII with Virtru to Meet European Data Privacy, Data Sovereignty, and Healthcare Regulatory Requirements

Secure data wherever it’s shared so you can focus on delivering the best patient care.

Healthcare providers need quick access to health data. While cloud collaboration improves accessibility, it also raises questions around potential data loss, patient confidentiality, and data sovereignty/residency concerns. The security of personal data is an essential part of compliance with European healthcare privacy regulations, such as Hébergeur de Données de Santé (HDS) backed up by the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).

Under these regulations, providers and partners are required to secure 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, healthcare organizations can experience obstacles to migrate to the cloud and improve their communication/collaboration with providers, patients, and payers.

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.
