The Institute for Social Medicine SMI Berlin prepares reports on medical facts for insurance companies, courts and other clients. The expert opinions determine, for example, an inability to work or the necessity of a rehabilitation measure.
It is obvious that data protection has top priority in such expert reports. Especially because the SMI cooperates with external writing agencies. In the past, the SMI hired couriers to transport the encrypted data on USB sticks. This was not only expensive, but also time-consuming and complicated.
Frama RMail was the ideal solution. RMail provides the team with an easy to use Outlook plug-in to send encrypted documents, as well as the confirmation that all information has been transmitted securely and traceable.
Each sent e-mail is followed by a proof of delivery. In case of doubt, the SMI can prove that the personal data of the data subject has been handled in compliance with the GDPR. In addition, thanks to the "LargeMail" function, large files such as x-rays can also be sent encrypted.
The cooperation with the external writing offices was enhanced by the RMail function "Secure Reply" and significantly simplified.
