Collaboration to Facilitate More Secure Electronic Transactions for Life Sciences Industry
ATLANTA — Feb. 7, 2012 —
Liaison Technologies, a global provider of secure cloud-based integration and data management services and solutions, announced today a partnership with SAFE-BioPharma Association. As a result, Liaison’s clients and their partners can leverage the validation and security of the SAFE-BioPharma® digital identity and signature standard, which verifies and manages digital identities and signatures involved in electronic transactions.
“Liaison’s enablement of the SAFE-BioPharma standard in a cloud-based platform is important to life sciences organizations as they utilize this important technology,” said Mollie Shields-Uehling, president and CEO, SAFE-BioPharma Association.
This standard was designed to speed transformation of the biopharmaceutical and healthcare communities to a fully digital environment, while mitigating legal, regulatory and other business risk associated with electronic transactions. Recognized by the Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) and in-line with HIPAA regulations, the standard provides a way to verify the identities of parties involved in business-to-business and business-to-regulator electronic transactions.
“Collaborating with SAFE-BioPharma shows an ongoing commitment to ensuring our cloud-based services are supported by industry standards that enhance the quality and security of patient and other sensitive data,” said Gary Palgon, Liaison’s vice president of healthcare solutions. “This partnership adds to other important relationships in our healthcare partner program that benefit our clients and support the services we provide.”
Liaison announced a healthcare partner program earlier this year in an effort to expand services available to clients so they can more easily exchange information in light of the HITECH Act and new models of care in addition to taking advantage of data for the purposes of secondary use.
SAFE-BioPharma is the global industry standard for digital trust. It was developed by a non-profit consortium of biopharmaceutical and related companies to transition the biopharmaceutical and healthcare communities to paperless environments.
