Grand View Health Renews Contract with Zix Corporation
Zix Email Encryption instills confidence with partnering organizations and hospitals
SELLERSVILLE, Pa. & DALLAS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Oct. 14, 2014-- Zix Corporation (ZixCorp), (NASDAQ: ZIXI), a leader in email data protection, announced that Grand View Health has signed a three-year renewal contract for Zix® Email Encryption. Grand View Health has been a ZixCorp customer since 2010 and uses ZixGateway®, a policy-based email encryption service, to automatically protect email communication for 1,000 employees.
“As an organization, we strive to meet the highest level of protection for patient information. ZixGateway is a key piece of that puzzle,” said Bob Emert, manager of MIS for Grand View Health. “We recognized early on the need to secure patient and employee information in email to attain Meaningful Use. Since then, a number of our partner hospitals and organizations have begun embracing Zix Email Encryption, creating a network of trust and transparency when it comes to sending secure messages.”
To improve patient care, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services provide financial incentives to providers who show Meaningful Use of their Electronic Health Record (EHR) technology. Email encryption assists providers in protecting electronic health information and patient privacy, as outlined in Meaningful Use objectives.
“Zix Email Encryption is seamless and provides us with great confidence,” said Emert. “Secure communication would be incredibly easy for everyone if they all just used Zix.”
All organizations that use ZixGateway, including more than 30 Blue Cross Blue Shield Organizations and one in every five U.S. hospitals, form the Zix Encryption Network. Within this growing community, all messages, regardless of content, are automatically encrypted and decrypted without any impact on senders or receivers. For Grand View Health, its employees automatically exchange all emails securely and transparently with more than 250 organizations in Zix Encryption Network. ZixCorp is the only vendor to offer automatic transparent email encryption for both senders and recipients, where messages are decrypted without any extra steps or passwords.
For any emails sent outside Zix Encryption Network, ZixGateway scans the content of the message and attachments. If the email contains sensitive information, it is automatically encrypted and delivered to recipients using ZixPort®, a mobile-friendly secure Web portal.
“ZixCorp has established itself as a proven leader in delivering email encryption services to healthcare providers,” said Rick Spurr, ZixCorp’s chairman and CEO. “Each time an organization embraces Zix Email Encryption or renews our service, our solution becomes stronger. The loyalty of Grand View Health and its story of ease of use are examples of how we’ve become the solution of choice for the healthcare industry.”
