Devon and Cornwall Autistic Community Trust (Spectrum) a leading specialist social care service provider has recently adopted a solution that allows them to securely exchange sensitive documents within their organisation and with their care service partners. This gives all their staff the ability to report, liaise, communicate and comply with care standards best practice not only securely and on-line but also with the speed of today’s internet.
Spectrum Chief Executive Officer Mary Simpson said, “We have many Homes in remote locations and we had been looking for a way to leverage the internet without compromising data confidentiality and our adherence to UK care Standards best practice. From the outset we realised that standard email could not be used, as it is inherently insecure. Our research led us to look at products that were already deployed within other sectors and in turn, this led us to the iSentry Digital Content Exchange.”
The iSentry Digital Content Exchange (DCX) is a server based, secure messaging platform that allows Spectrum to seamlessly deliver and exchange confidential information. Supporting both individual message and batch processing, DCX allows Spectrum to securely and compliantly communicate whilst dramatically reducing the cost of their mail, fax, printing and courier services.
Supported by comprehensive tracking and tamper sealing capabilities, DCX required no software or plug-ins on the client site and it was the perfect solution for the secure delivery of confidential document packages, confidential patient records, and other sensitive communications.
iSentry Business Development Director Tim Bowman said “its great to be providing a useful and innovative solution to Spectrum. We have always believed our products to be a natural fit for Health and Social Care organisations. Companies like Spectrum have the vision to deploy technology solutions that enhance their service provision, but they are also acutely aware of the need to maintain the highest standards of regulatory compliance, particularly as they handle extremely sensitive personal information. Our technology ensures that their sensitive documentation now remains encrypted and tamper sealed in storage and transit whilst also providing a simple to use zero installation interface."
He added, "In common with our existing clients in the financial and military sectors, Spectrum now get the speed and efficiency of the internet without sacrificing their own high standards of best practice, and all at a fraction of the cost of some of the nationwide efforts being implemented today."
