The challenge

CMI faced significant challenges in managing and securing the large volumes of sensitive patient health information (PHI) they handle daily. 

The healthcare industry is heavily regulated, and maintaining compliance with standards like HIPAA is non-optional for those striving to avoid penalties and safeguard PHI. Ensuring cybersecurity, HIPAA compliance, and easy, safe data exchange is absolutely central to their operations. 

They needed a reliable, secure, and compliant data transfer solution that was also cost-effective.

Brian Cole, Chief Operating Officer at CMI, stated:

"We needed a secure gateway to manage the exchange of sensitive patient information. Our previous platform was becoming cost-prohibitive and didn't meet our needs anymore."
