In this age of cyber-attacks and security breaches, secure payment solutions are absolutely mandatory. Data from the Identity Theft Resource Center (ITRC) reveals that healthcare has had the second largest number of security breaches in the last 12 months, with 333 of the 783 data breaches recorded in 2014 in healthcare.
As HIPAA protects patients’ personal data, Bluefin’s PCI-validated Point-to-Point Encryption (P2PE) solutions protects patients’ credit card information by encrypting all data within a PCI P2PE approved point of entry device so that it is not transmitted through the credit card system as clear-text – where it could be accessible to a fraudster in the event of a data breach.
More and more healthcare organizations are recognizing the need to encrypt patient payment data. In mid-2015, Bluefin and Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta partnered to provide P2PE and payment processing to Children’s multiple facilities across Georgia. We recently sat down with Selwyn Carter, Corporate Treasury Manager at Children’s, to learn more about their decision to adopt P2PE and why they chose a PCI-validated P2PE solution versus a non-validated solution.
