IntegraNet Health Rolls Out VirnetX’s Gabriel Secure Communications to Assist with HIPAA Compliance
Texas Based MSO and Accountable Care Organization Rolls Out Gabriel Secure Communications to 1,600 Primary Care and Specialty Physician Network
ZEPHYR COVE, Nevada.,– 5/8/2018 – VirnetX™ Holding Corporation (NYSE AMERICAN: VHC), an Internet security software and technology company, announced today that IntegraNet Health, a recognized leader in the Population Health Management industry, including the Accountable Care and Medicare Advantage Programs, has adopted the Gabriel Secure Communications Suite for internal use and will be rolling out the Gabriel Secure Communications Suite to its Texas wide network of physicians, specialists and Hospitalists to dramatically improve the required secure transmission of HIPAA compliant medical records.
IntegraNet Health, in an agreement facilitated by Gabriel sales partner Asgard Managed Services, has been using Gabriel since February 2018, and will now roll out the Gabriel Secure Communications Suite to its network of over 1,600 primary care and specialty physicians.
“We believe the Gabriel suite is the most secure platform to send, store, and interact with Electronic Protected Health Information (ePHI),” said Lawrence Wedekind, IntegraNet Health CEO. “Gabriel’s robust features allows us to improve certain outdated modalities that we had to previously employ for securing text messages, sharing files, and encrypting emails, resulting in measurable cost savings as we deploy it across our entire Primary care and Specialty care physician network. Asgard is assisting and supporting this deployment.”
“IntegraNet Health is a proven leader in population health and we look forward to working with them and their network to achieve and maintain HIPAA compliance,” said Kendall Larsen, VirnetX CEO and President. “HIPAA compliance must be adhered to and we believe Gabriel provides the necessary secure transmission requirements.”
