SpamStopsHere Announces HIPAA Compliant Anti-Spam for Medical Professionals

ANN ARBOR, MI — July 11, 2005 — Healthcare organizations now have a simple and cost-effective solution for eliminating spam, without the worry of blocking legitimate emails containing medical content. SpamStopsHereâ„? anti-spam/antivirus service blocks over 99% of spam “out of the box” and passes 99.99% of legitimate email. SpamStopsHere allows healthcare organizations to implement security standards required under the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA.)

Healthcare organizations are constantly bombarded with multiple problems due to the vast amount of spam they receive every day. Significant loss of employee productivity as well as added strain on IT departments occur due to spammed inboxes. Viruses cause corruption of valuable data; costs for infection can easily run into the thousands of dollars. Pornographic spam poses EEOC legal liabilities. Legitimate mail is often blocked with current anti-spam systems, causing substantial loss of revenues and customer confidence. Fraudulent “phishing” emails can result in identity theft and devastating consequences for employees. Open relay infection poses the risk of being added to universal blacklists and losing all outbound email capability.

SpamStopsHere defends against all these risks with no administrator maintenance, no software or hardware to install, and with the ironclad reassurance of our HIPAA compliance. Utilizing patent-pending technology, SpamStopsHere updates its protection every 5 minutes to annihilate the latest spam campaigns before they ever reach your network.

“Allowing medical content while blocking spam has always been a very tricky business” said Ted Green, CEO of Greenview Data, developers of SpamStopsHere. “Many general medical terms are flagged as spam by conventional spam blockers and filters. SpamStopsHere does not filter based on trigger words or weighted heuristics; therefore allows any legitimate content, including necessary medical and pharmaceutical terminology. SpamStopsHere is ideal for any healthcare organization that is required to implement HIPAA compliant security standards.”

“SpamStopsHere benefits us by giving us the ability to enforce HIPAA compliant email policies while blocking unsolicited emails that would undoubtedly flood our servers and network” said Ravi Sandhu, Director of Information Systems at City of Hope Medical Group. “SpamStopsHere successfully blocks about 20,000 emails monthly for us, with no user intervention. We have very limited technical resources and SpamStopsHere has provided us with a service that could otherwise be very labor intensive. I recommend SpamStopsHere to any HIPAA compliant health organization that is looking to block SPAM.”
