AMS File Transfer is widely used within Healthcare and NHS organisations to secure and modernise the way they share Patient Identifiable Data (PID) inside and outside the organisation.

Keeping your data safe, at all times

Working in Healthcare for many years we understand the intense pressure to secure the way information and data is transferred in and out of the organisation.

There are 3 core principals:

  • Data must be secure from unauthorised access
  • Data must be safeguarded against unauthorised modification
  • Data must be accessible when and to who it is required

Patient information is extremely sensitive and needs to be protected against unauthorised access whilst making the information easily accessible to the correct people.

Managing this process is tricky and has traditionally been achieved by either printing and posting documents or encrypting files and burning them to disk. These methods can be problematic, costly and offer minimal auditability or tracking.

AMS File Transfer makes the process of sharing information with patients and external third parties simple and secure, eliminating burning to disk and legacy transfer processes whilst increasing control and security. Your data is encrypted in transit and at rest. The solution is easy to use and intuitive for both internal and external users.

The Problem

Patients, Solicitors, Relatives and other authorised 3rd parties often need to gain access to medical records and sensitive information for a variety of purposes.

Traditionally this has been achieved through a manual process, such as printing and posting or burning information to disk.

The Solution

Typically, we work with Subject Access Request (SAR’s) teams, Information Governance (IG), Legal departments, Freedom of Information (FOI), Access to Health Records, Adult Services, Child Services and GP Surgeries.

The Advantages

By doing this electronically, Healthcare and NHS organisations can reduce the amount they spend on printing, posting and burning to disk whilst providing greater visibility on the information that is shared. Modernising this process is key to NHS Digital Transformation initiatives.
