ZixCorp Secures Five-Year Contract Extension with Highland District Hospital for Zix Email Encryption

Proven, easy to use secure email enables Highland District Hospital to protect patients and address HIPAA requirement for nearly a decade

HILLSBORO, Ohio & DALLAS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--May 18, 2016-- Zix Corporation (ZixCorp), (Nasdaq: ZIXI), a leader in email data protection, announced that Highland District Hospital has renewed its contract for Zix® Email Encryption for an additional five years. A Zix customer since 2007, Highland District Hospital continues to benefit from industry-leading email encryption and a growing community of Zix users that makes secure email as easy as regular email.

“Zix Email Encryption works wonderfully. Our patients, employees and peers appreciate the high level of security without the extra effort, and our leadership takes comfort in knowing that patient privacy and compliance are met without interference of quality care,” said Tim Bogard, Information Systems Manager for Highland District Hospital.

Highland District Hospital uses ZixGateway®, a policy-based email encryption service, to automatically secure protected health information (PHI), financial data and other sensitive information exchanged in outbound emails. With automatic scanning and encryption, Highland District Hospital safeguards patient privacy and meets its regulatory obligations under the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA).

To further assist compliance, ZixCorp provides enhanced visibility into encrypted email through a customizable reporting dashboard. With access to more than 25 different reports, Highland District Hospital monitors outbound and inbound message data to verify compliance and review email encryption trends.

“Real-time reporting is a helpful resource for my team and our HIPAA officer. We can view what policies are triggered, who’s sending the most PHI and if there are any irregularities,” said Bogard. “We can also view how often messages are sent transparently. It’s nice to know that our peers aren’t jumping through hoops to exchange encrypted messages with us.”

Highland District Hospital communicates securely and transparently with more than 200 organizations, including other healthcare providers, payors, financial institutions and government organizations. Encrypted emails are automatically decrypted and delivered transparently if recipients use ZixGateway. Of the 1.1 million Zix encrypted messages delivered every business day, more than 70 percent are delivered transparently, without the need for passwords or extra steps. If recipients do not use ZixGateway, encrypted messages are delivered in less than two steps through a mobile-friendly, secure Web portal.

“By delivering email encryption in the easiest method possible, we make communication in the healthcare community stronger and safer,” said David Wagner, ZixCorp’s Chief Executive Officer. “After nearly a decade, it’s a testament to our ease of use and innovation that Highland District Hospital continues to rely on Zix Email Encryption for the protection of its community and for compliance with HIPAA privacy obligations.”
