PDF Tools AG - Customer testimonial - success story
Encryption of care reports at MEDICPROOF with 3‑Heights® PDF Security component
Almost 1,000 freelance assessors ensure that MEDICPROOF creates more than 130,000 care reports each year for private insurance companies. MEDICPROOF staff at the head office in Cologne help these companies to solve problems during the assessment and provide them with advice on issues relating to medicine and care. The reports are created using the Windows-based application ProofForms, developed by MEDICPROOF itself.
Handling health data requires a very high level of security and encryption. MEDICPROOF therefore needed a tool that could support the secure encryption of PDF files and be integrated into its existing application. The aim was to ensure that sensitive documents are not saved in unencrypted form on hard drives. In addition to a broad range of functions and simple integration, the 3-Heights® PDF Security components offer the additional advantage of being able to encrypt PDFs in the working memory without interim storage and then save them to the hard drive. This ensures that no unencrypted data is ever located on the hard drive.
The function and performance tests with the 3-Heights® PDF Security tool during the evaluation period were very promising. Alternative products were also evaluated by the company, but these proved either not reliable enough or were not able to process PDF documents with the required level of security. They were also very inflexible.
“The easy .NET interface, which encapsulates the signature functions, deserves a special mention. It allowed the required signature functionality to be achieved in the application with minimal footprint. The tight schedule during implementation presented an additional challenge, but we were able to overcome this thanks to the highly dedicated support team at PDF Tools AG. The complete system has been live for several months now. The signature interface has proved to be stable and reliable. All our expectations were met, not least due to the straightforward support provided by PDF Tools AG.”
