File Transfer Application (FTA):


Vanderbilt University Medical Center (VUMC), through its Information Privacy and Security Executive Committee, regularly assesses the operating and computing environment to identify risk factors and define safeguards against intentional or unintentional disclosure of Protected Health Information (PHI), person-identifiable, or other confidential or proprietary information created, used, or maintained by Vanderbilt.

Electronic messages (e.g. email, text messaging, or instant messaging) may contain information that is regarded as sensitive by either the sender or receiver.  VUMC policies define several categories of sensitive information including Protected Health Information (PHI); Research Health Information (RHI); and Personal Information that may contain individually identifiable information about patients, employees, students, or research participants.  Individually identifiable Sensitive Information is not to be transmitted by Vanderbilt Workforce Members over electronic communication systems without taking appropriate measures to safeguard the security of the information against message interception, content alteration, or unauthorized disclosure.

The File Transfer Application is a tool Vanderbilt workforce members can use in association with email to transfer files of information securely.
