QUINCY, MA (Mar. 29, 2021) —The University of Connecticut (UConn), one of the nation’s top-ranked research institutions, has selected the HIPAA-compliant Merlin digital asset management (DAM) solution from Merlin Compliance, Inc., to manage and safeguard their multimedia digital content.  Based in Storrs, CT, with seven campuses including a medical school, UConn joins a growing list of higher education and healthcare organizations who have selected Merlin to assist in telling their story in both a secure and HIPAA-compliant way.

Through the implementation and use of a Merlin DAM solution, internal challenges around content management and efficient asset distribution will be solved for the organization and its teams. “The current health crisis exacerbated their need for a solution that would transform and extend their digital asset management processes for a newly distributed workforce while maintaining HIPAA-compliance and Merlin was the answer,” says Peter Leabo, Director of Sales at Merlin Compliance.
