SAN ANTONIO, Texas — October 9, 2014 – MEA|NEA (National Electronic Attachment), provider of the FastAttach™ electronic claim attachment solution, today, from the American Dental Association annual meeting (ADA 2014), announces the launch of its new HIPAA compliant document and data storage solution, FastVaultsFastVaults is a cloud-based solution allowing for the remote storage of patient health data and other information pertinent to a dental practice’s operation, growth and success. FastVaults provides practices an alternative to non-healthcare-specific cloud storage solutions and helps practices protect sensitive documents and other information while making the data easily accessible from any device by assigned users. Practices can easily share files with referring providers, payers and even patients via password protected links shared by email. Users can set expiration timeframes for these links to limit accessibility of data.

FastVaults also reduces a practice’s dependency on paper and helps eliminate the need for physical files and storage. Paper files are typically the most prone to breaches. Additionally, nearly 15 percent of cloud services are high risk and more than 75 percent are medium risk of breach, FastVaults provides an essential, healthcare-specific, HIPAA compliant solution that vastly increases the level of security of a practice’s stored documents while protecting information practices are charged to manage.

“Paper files are only as secure as the locks on an office’s doors. What really sets FastVaults apart from other services is that we specialize solely in healthcare data security and understand the depth of protection required of the data within records,” said Lindy Benton, CEO of MEA|NEA. “And, unlike some cloud storage services on the market, we don’t look at the information stored, nor do we sell the information we store in the vault. In fact, we don’t do anything except facilitate and maintain the technology that securely stores practice’s information. With FastVaults providers can rest assured that all of their important data always will remain safe and secure.”

FastVaults allows for unlimited number of user accounts for business and personal storage and sharing; supports storage, retrieval and sharing of any file type; allows employees to quickly locate the files needed to prevent lost documents; and provides secure, protected, HIPAA-compliant files for everything stored in the vault by the practice. User accounts are administered by the practice and therefore are customizable to the roles and needs of each user group.

MEA|NEA stands by the security of FastVaults as the company has more than 17 years of experience with secure information exchange having never lost a document within its well-known FastAttach electronic claim attachment solution.

FastVaults is available for use beginning Nov. 3, 2014. Current FastAttach clients can sign-up now for their free FastVaults account at: https://secure3.nea-fast.com/cgi-bin/display_fastvaults_registration.
