User Awareness Program


As you are aware, email has become the preferred method for corporate communication. However, email is not a private conversation; unencrypted email messages can be intercepted and read.

With the adoption of the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA), all communication containing Protected Health Information (PHI) must be encrypted. To ensure the confidentiality of private information sent via email and comply with privacy HIPAA regulations, PMHCC uses email encryption services through Zix Corporation.

For both our employees and our partners, Zix Corporation makes encrypted email communication easy. ZixCorp’s services allow us to send encrypted email messages to anyone, whether they are a ZixCorp customer or not.

Secure messaging is not just a Government mandate; it is a practical way to conduct business. This site helps you understand our encrypted email initiatives.
