LuxSci is Offering Free Secure Email During COVID-19 Pandemic

High Volume COVID-19 Test Results Communicated Quickly and Securely

See press release from April 23, 2020.

The evolving COVID-19 pandemic continues to place extreme strain on healthcare services and diagnostic labs needing to communicate critical information, such as test results, quickly and efficiently.  These organizations are nevertheless still constrained by HIPAA regulations. LuxSci is extending its offer for free HIPAA-compliant emailing services through October 1st, 2020 to help them cope with these demands and to speed time-sensitive communications.  Interested organizations may apply at our website: LuxSci COVID-19.

LuxSci’s CEO, Erik Kangas, stressed the importance of secure email for medical test results:

“Email communication sounds mundane, but right now it can literally save lives and help us bootstrap our way back to normal more safely.  As the country starts to open up and we struggle to socially distance, knowing your results days or hours sooner may be the difference between attending an event or staying home. As I watch friends and family fall sick and fear for others, I realize that this is one unique way that we can make a small but important difference.  LuxSci is one of the few companies that has positioned itself to provide high volumes of truly HIPAA-compliant email.”

High volumes of testing and retesting will continue through the foreseeable future, thus leading to an urgent need to deliver test results to increasingly large numbers of people in a timely and secure manner.  Use of email for health care communications supports this. It’s instantaneous and ubiquitous. Even with the advent of “instant COVID-19 testing,” lab-based testing remains crucial as it provides the most accurate data about infection.

LuxSci is providing its HIPAA-compliant transactional email service free to any organization delivering COVID-19-related health or safety information. (Some restrictions may apply.)  Services are available to testing labs as well as healthcare organizations of any size: those with modest needs (up 25,000 messages/month) and high-capacity needs (millions of messages per month).  Typical pricing for these services ranges from $100/month to well over $1000/month, depending on the volume.

In response to the US declaration of a COVID-19 public health emergency, LuxSci is offering companies the ability to send free High Volume HIPAA-compliant health/safety-related email securely, free of charge, until July 1st, 2020.

CEO Erik Kangas said,

“Communication during the COVID-19 emergency is essential, and LuxSci wants to help. That’s why, starting immediately, we are offering eligible companies the ability to share vital information with their employees and consumers free of charge. We hope the six-month window will be generous enough for this health emergency to resolve out of crisis mode and into maintenance mode.”

He added,

“We are providing accounts for sending up to 25,000 emails per month to smaller organizations with modest needs.  For larger organizations, who may need to send into the millions of messages each month, we are providing free dedicated server sending solutions.”  Both solutions are free through July 1st.   With CoronaVirus fears taking hold, the need for secure communication is in unprecedented demand. Our goal is to help protect personal information from predation during this crisis and to facilitate the fast, secure communication of critical information, such as medical testing results.  If we can give companies and consumers one less thing to worry about, this is the right thing to do.”

LuxSci’s HIPAA-compliant email solutions enable companies to send PHI and other sensitive information during mission-critical or sensitive sending scenarios.

This promotion is available to all new eligible US clients; terms and conditions apply.  Existing customers who have a similar need can also apply.
