DataMotion Offers Secure Cloud-Based Communication Solutions for Insurance Agencies

Partners Benefit Group Uses DataMotion's Cloud-Based Data Exchange Solutions to Protect Its Members Personal Healthcare Information and to Manage New Privacy Regulations

MORRISTOWN, NJ--(Marketwire - January 20, 2011) -  DataMotion, Inc., a provider of secure information delivery solutions, today announced that it offers secure cloud-based communication solutions for insurance agencies. Insurance agencies process insurance claims and certain aspects of employee benefit plans for their customers. These organizations often exchange documents containing private data such as social security numbers and private health information (PHI) with their clients and partners through the mail, fax, couriers and unsecured email.

With thirteen agencies and nine locations across Georgia, Partners Benefit Group, LLC offers progressive employee benefits administration and management programs. In 2009, the changes to HIPAA and HITECH impacted Partners Benefit Group and its clients as they accessed, exchanged and disclosed protected PHI. Most of the time sensitive documents were faxed, but Partners Benefit Group needed an easier and more efficient way to comply with the new laws. And with a one person IT staff, the solution had to be fast, available in the "cloud," and easy for agents to use. 

After extensive research, Partners Benefit Group selected DataMotion's SecureMail and SecureContact solutions. The company chose SecureMail because the technology was easy to implement, cost effective and easy to use. By using SecureMail in their existing Outlook client, Partners Benefit Group can easily send emails to clients containing confidential data, and is assured its clients' data and documents are being sent back and forth securely -- even if the client does not have secure email technology. Additionally, Partners Benefit Group implemented SecureContact, which enables clients to securely email Partners Benefit Group directly from the company's website. Now when a client sends a private document using SecureContact, they no longer need to call the agent to alert them to a fax, reducing the amount of time agents use to coordinate communication with customers.

"We especially liked the SecureMail technology because it is intuitive and easy to use. We purchased and implemented the technology in just a few days. Our agents click on the 'Send Secure' button and are assured the information is sent securely. We no longer need to provide our clients with fax numbers, encryption keys or user names and passwords," said Gary Simmons, President, Partners Benefit Group.

Today, Partners Benefit Group's email messages and attachments are easily encrypted by agents and clients without managing keys, and exchanges between agents and clients take less time. Moreover, the company has increased compliance with HIPAA regulations. 

"Our business is very complicated and it is challenging to keep up with all of the new rules and regulations related to information privacy. By using DataMotion's technology we always know that the information we send is secure and we are not violating any regulations," added Simmons. "I was so impressed with the technology that I have referred several insurance brokers to DataMotion."

"Compliance with government regulations like HIPAA cannot be ignored. Sensitive data must be protected at all times and security tools must not impede the process of doing business. Our secure communications tools offer insurance agencies and TPAs easy to use solutions that can help keep private data secure and improve the way they do business with their clients and partners," said Bob Janacek, CTO, DataMotion.
