Identillect’s Delivery Trust® implemented by Hospice & Palliative Care for Secure Communications of Patient Data
IRVINE, Calif., June 11, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Identillect Technologies Corp. (the “Company” or “Identillect”) (TSX-V:ID) (OTCQB:IDTLF) (Frankfurt:8ID), a trusted leading provider of compliant email security, announced today Hospice & Palliative Care of Iredell County (HOIC), a provider of hospice care, has selected Delivery Trust® for email communication security across their entire network.
Hospice & Palliative Care of Iredell County, HOIC has been caring for the community since 1984. Their specially trained hospice professionals and volunteers are dedicated to supporting patients and their loved ones throughout the end-of-life experience with compassionate medical care focused on managing pain and other symptoms while promoting comfort and dignity. They serve patients throughout Iredell, Davie, Rowan, Cabarrus, Mecklenburg, Catawba, Alexander, Wilkes, Lincoln and Yadkin Counties, delivering care in homes, assisted living or skilled nursing facilities and area hospitals as well as at the inpatient Gordon Hospice House in Statesville.
Terri Phillips, CEO of HOIC stated, “We have always ensured our patients receive the most compassionate care and our dedication to protecting patient data is no different. We are now advancing our security measures and providing enhanced protection for all patient information with Delivery Trust.”
According to the Populations Reference Bureau, the number of Americans aged 65 and over is set to double from 46 million today to 98 million in 2060. Additionally, this 14% of the population currently accounts for 34% of health-related spending in the United States. This is due in part to an aging population, as well as the average lifespan increasing from 68 years of age in 1950, to 79 years in 2013. These individuals are more likely to be the subject of scam attempts, with a recent survey of caregivers indicating that 67% of seniors had been the subject of a scam.
Todd Sexton, CEO of Identillect Technologies comments, “We are excited to be able to provide Delivery Trust email security for HOIC, a respected provider of hospice care throughout North Carolina. With expanded regulations for patient privacy under HIPAA, we expect the health care segment to see growth in the demand for compliance software. Additionally, the growing elderly population is seeing amplified breaches in this sector of the medical community and it is our goal to help mitigate these occurrences.”
The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) is legislation focused on data privacy and security for medical information. As a result of increasing cyber-security threats, the rules surrounding internet security were enhanced to protect confidential patient information. North America still leads in data breaches investigated by Trustwave at 43%. Targeted attacks are becoming prevalent and much more sophisticated. Many breach incidents show signs of careful preplanning by cybercriminals probing for weak packages and tools to exploit. This extension now applies to any health care provider, as well as business associates, which utilize the electronic transmission of confidential patient data. All this is creating much of the growth in the need for cyber-security products.
