Case Study: Securely Email Medical Laboratory Results to Patients

Thursday, February 1st, 2018

We count many medical laboratories among our customers.  They process lab tests for doctors and send the results to the patients via email.

Medical laboratories, while sometimes not HIPAA covered entities themselves, are Business Associates with Hospitals and doctors who are required to abide by HIPAA.  By the “transitive” nature of the HIPAA privacy laws, such Business Associates must take pains to abide by HIPAA security and privacy standards, protecting patient data, and ensuring confidentiality.

Medical labs use large scale secure email sending

In order to send patients their results via email, these labs must use a HIPAA-complaint system that can send email to anyone with an email address.

This post describes how one large medical lab uses LuxSci’s SecureLine to safely deliver lab results to 1000s people every day.

LuxSci Outbound Email: 5 Sending Options Compared!

Thursday, March 6th, 2014

It used to be that to send an email, you had very few choices and even less control over what happened once the message was sent, how many emails you could send, or how you connected to the Internet to send email.  Well, times have changed, the Internet has evolved, users are more savvy, and expectations are much higher.

Today, LuxSci offers (more than) five different ways to send outbound email, each geared to particular uses and needs.  In this article, we will describe each method, examine the pros and cons, and end with a  feature chart.  Our goal is to make your outbound email shopping experience straightforward and to provide you with an email service appropriate for your needs.

Send Fast, Send More – High Volume Bulk Email Server Clusters

Friday, June 29th, 2012

LuxSci’s High Volume bulk emailing service provides excellent deliverability for legitimate mass mailings — e.g. newsletters, transactional email messages, announcements, etc.

It is often the case that customers require either:

  • Sending to large numbers of recipients (millions to 10s of millions or more in a month)
  • Sending many messages quickly (in short bursts)

In either case, the mail server needs to be able to handle large numbers of concurrent connections and to process large mail queues quickly.  There are several ways to go about this:

Brand the Email Headers of your Outbound Bulk Email: LuxSci High Volume

Friday, October 14th, 2011

Email message recipients can look at the source or headers of a received message and determine such things as:

  • What servers sent it
  • What programs were used to send it
  • What companies were involved in the sending

Often our High Volume Bulk Mailing customers do not want recipients to know that they are using LuxSci or High Volume — they would prefer that the sending be “branded” so that it looks like messages are coming from their own service and servers.

Premium High Volume Outbound Email Service

Monday, June 1st, 2009

High Volume EmailLuxSci’s High Volume Outbound Email Sending Service, released earlier this year, has been a notable success.  Our service permits the sending of legitimate bulk email messages and also provides reliable “smarthost” services.  However, the offering is restricted to SMTP services and does not include the many outbound email processing tools present in LuxSci’s Premium Email service.  I.e. see  LuxSci Outbound Email: 5 Sending Options Compared!

Since High Volume Mail was offered, we have had many requests to send HIPAA-compliant bulk outbound email, i.e. newsletters and notices that contain protected health information (PHI) .  In such cases, SecureLine should be used to encrypt the outbound email in a way that can be opened by any recipient, but which is still secure.  Unfortunately, integration with SecureLine is not a feature of our Basic High Volume service.

LuxSci has responded by releasing Premium High Volume Outbound Email Service.  This is essentially Premium Email hosting with:
