US Senate Finance Committee chairman Max Baucus (D-MT) was the chief sponsor and lead author of his committee’s health care bill, which ultimately became the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, better known as “ObamaCare.” Baucus shepherded that bill through the Finance Committee, the negotiations with other senators and Obama administration officials in Majority Leader Harry Reid’s (D-NV) office, and the final negotiations with the administration and House leaders. Baucus can reasonably claim to be the man most responsible for the PPACA. On September 23, 2009 — exactly six months before the PPACA became law — Baucus admitted on national television that the availability of PPACA’s “premium assistance tax credits” would be conditional on whether states implemented the law. During a mark-up of his bill, Baucus ruled out of order a Republican amendment dealing with medical malpractice on the grounds that med mal lies outside the Finance Committee’s jurisdiction. (The Judiciary Committee has jurisdiction over med mal.) Sensing a double-standard, Republican Sen. John Ensign (R-NV) challenged Baucus.

Pittsburgh, PA (PRWEB) February 21, 2012

Certes Networks, the leader in scalable network encryption, announced today that Jefferson Regional Medical Center, a regional hospital system in southeast Arkansas, has selected Certes Networks’ Advanced IPsec VPN solution to secure their regulated HIPPA/HITECH data across their network.

Jefferson Regional Medical Center is a not-for-profit, private 471-bed hospital in Pine Bluff Arkansas with four remote office locations. For cost savings, Jefferson Regional uses a line-of-sight Free-space Optical (FSO) link to connect one of the smaller remote locations to their Business Center.

While we wanted to take advantage of the cost savings of free-space optical, we were not willing to compromise the security of our patients health information, said Eric Whitmore, Network Engineer at Jefferson Regional. We recognized not just the HIPAA/HITECH requirements to safeguard Protected Health Information (PHI), but importantly, we also acknowledge the trust that our patients place in us to keep their information secure.

In order to secure the FSO connection, Jefferson Regional investigated several encryption solutions; including using a traditional tunnel-based IPsec VPN. We looked at the options and realized that using a tunnel based VPN solution would add a whole layer of unnecessary complexity, added Whitmore. The TrustNet solution from Certes Networks was the only solution that provided standards based security without forcing us to modify our architecture or suffer performance degradation.

Certes Networks provided Jefferson Regional with a transparent Layer 2 encryption solution that does not impact their existing network architecture, which includes a legacy Radio Frequency (RF) connection that serves as an emergency back-up connection. By offering easy set-up, flexible deployment options, and global control of the generation of policies and dynamic distribution of keys, TrustNet enables organizations to encrypt data, voice and video over any type of network without compromising application performance or network reliability.

Jefferson Regional Medical Center joins a growing list of Certes Networks customers in the healthcare industry, said Thomas Gill, CEO of Certes Networks. They are further evidence that leading healthcare organizations can meet the security requirements of HIPAA and HITECH, as well as their own internal mandates for data privacy, without sacrificing network performance and reliability.

About Certes Networks

Certes Networks is the leader in multi-layer security and encryption solutions for high performance networks. The Company provides advanced security solutions that make Wide Area Networks, Data Centers and both Private and Public Clouds safe for sensitive workloads. Certes Networks helps organizations improve security, decrease risk, and reduce the cost of compliance while enabling high performance and secure connectivity to critical infrastructures.
