Immediate access to protected health information is crucial in many scenarios, leading providers to rely on file sharing through email or cloud file systems. While these advancements facilitate seamless coordination and patient engagement, they also introduce risk to patient confidentiality. The use of multi-cloud environments for digital care delivery could expose protected health information (PHI), raising concerns about HIPAA compliance and privacy.
Virtru Secure Share is an encrypted file-sharing platform that allows you to share and collect the files you need, without friction. It’s an easy solution for providers, patients, and everyone in between, allowing your team to focus on the work that matters most.
What Our Healthcare Clients Use Secure Share For
Easily Exchanging PHI Files
Secure Share allows providers and patients to securely send their sensitive PHI files without the extra hassle or confusion. No excessive portals to log into, passwords to remember, or software to download.
Maintaining HIPAA Compliance and Supervision
Secure Share helps clients protect HIPAA-protected information with end-to-end encryption at the data level. Granular access controls empower you with control and oversight for auditing. At any point in time, data owners can grant or revoke access to a file, set expiration dates, or track views and access.
Secure Team Collaboration
Our customers also use Secure Share to request files for patient care collaboration.You can easily share your unique personal link to collect files and collaborate with others within Slack, Microsoft Teams, Zoom, and more. You can also integrate your personal link into automated workflow messages sent by your CRM, case management, or other systems to streamline your process.
Inbound and Outbound File Sharing: Key Features
One-Click File Sharing
Designated individuals can share and receive secure files through a personalized link. By clicking on this link, patients, providers, and insurance companies can submit files of any size, that are then encrypted end-to-end upon upload, transit, and at the destination.
Seamless Adoption for All Collaborators
Secure Share runs out of your browser, so there’s no need to download any software. All your collaborators (patients, insurance companies, and other providers) need is your personal link to share files with or access files from you. A streamlined user interface makes it intuitive for anyone to dive in and start sharing.
Access Controls for All
Data owners can grant and revoke access to their sensitive data at any time and manage it with easy-to-apply expiration dates or watermarks on files. Using the Virtru Control Center, administrators can track who has accessed protected data, when, where, and for how long–and can revoke access at any point.
How We Do It
Secure Share is part of Virtru’s Trusted Data Platform, a holistic suite of data protection products and solutions. Like Virtru’s other encryption offerings, Secure Share is built on the powerful Trusted Data Format (TDF), which protects data on the object level throughout its entire lifecycle. By protecting each file itself with encryption, we allow the data owner complete control and oversight of their data at a granular level. Virtru protects PHI and patient data everywhere it flows through your organization: through email, enterprise applications, file sharing solutions, and collaboration tools.
