Secure File Transfer
Protected Medical File Transfer
We understand that in the modern society one of the most important factors is personal information safety. This is why we include to our full package a protected file transfer system, which allows you to add your files easily online or handing them personally to us. This system ensures that none of the information you provide to us or receive from your treatment is breached to any outside instance like to your local insurer. Nonetheless this information and all the documents are your property and we operate to respect your privacy and ensure that you choose to where your information goes.
HIPAA and GDPR protection
HIPAA or Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act regulates the medical file transfer and its framework. The file transfer in US is hence subject to this law. It is important to note that in order for you to seek coverage from your insurer, only the treatment related information is allowed to reach your insurer. In case you will not seek for any payments from your insurer the HIPAA is not necessarily applied when you send information to European facilities. In this case a European Union Regulation GDPR or General Data Protection Regulation is applied for your safety. GDPR is, if not more, then as rigorous on your personal protection as HIPAA regulation. GDPR essentially requires the medical instances holding, handling, and transferring personal information to follow strict rules and maintain securitization levels designed to each industry. This is true for all the European Union countries and also consider information sent from EU to other nations to be regulated under the GDPR protocol.
In short this means that as we provide the secure transfer system approved by regulations from both regions, you have one less thing to worry about before, during, and after your travel. You are also able to assign in detail, where you want your information and record to be sent.
