Identillect Technologies continues to be a major HIPAA complaint email provider for the Dental Community with Delivery Trust® Email Security
IRVINE, Calif., April 25, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Identillect Technologies Corp. (the "Company" or "Identillect") (TSX-V:ID) (IDTLF, Financial) (Frankfurt:8ID), a trusted leading provider of HIPAA (Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act) compliant email security, announced today SF Perio & Implants (“SF Perio”) has selected Delivery Trust® to secure their email communications containing sensitive protected health information (PHI).
SF Perio provides world-class care in periodontal (gum) disease, oral surgery and dental implants. They focus on providing the latest procedures for treating periodontal disease and placing dental implants tailored to their client’s needs. As with many surgical and dental practices, SF Perio deals with a substantial amount of PHI in their communications with clients and referring physicians. SF Perio’s Dr. Olivares states, “In our industry, staying current with the latest technological advances is vital to truly serving the needs of our patients. The trust our patients place in us to treat their medical needs extends to protecting their personal information as well. Delivery Trust enables us to leverage the latest technology in secure communications and continue delivering the quality care our patients deserve.”
The medical industry has been plagued by a continual stream of data breaches, it is estimated 70,000 cyber-security attacks occur every minute in the United States. The dental industry is no different, seeing an increase in cybersecurity threats in 2017. Dentists are held to the same rigorous regulations other medical entities across the United States are held to, and are subject to the same fines for being outside of compliance when protecting patients protected health information (PHI). Many dental practices still utilize outdated technology like File Transfer Protocol (FTP) to transfer and transmit patient information. The FBI is warning that cyber-criminals are targeting these methods because they are no longer safe, and it is urging dental and medical offices to use more stringent security such as Identillect’s Delivery Trust end-to-end email encryption to protect health information.
Identillect CEO Todd Sexton states, “We are pleased to be a leading provider of email security for the dental community, which has historically been underserved. SF Perio is another example of an exceptional organization Identillect is able to assist in expanding their security protocols to meet and exceed HIPAA’s expanding regulations. Identillect will continue growing its impact on the medical and dental industry as it expands its subscriber growth in 2018.”
