Are you being HIPAA compliant?
Federal regulations require that Personal Health Information be protected, does your phone service protect patients PHI?
If you operate under the set of compliance measures set forth by the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA), it may be time to take a look at investing in a HIPAA compliant phone service. HIPAA regulates the daily activities of health care providers throughout the country as well as tools such as phone systems. Having an automated phone tree system that takes care of all regulatory aspects of the law can put your mind at ease and allows you to focus on what’s most important: the patients in your care.
HIPAA doesn’t always necessarily affect healthcare providers such as hospitals, clinics, and private practices; it may affect a company or business that transmits or handles any health information through the organization or over the phone. That’s why it is important for you to become educated on the different requirements associated with your phone systems if you fall under the umbrella of HIPAA.
If you find yourself in an industry that requires being HIPAA compliant, then it only makes sense to cover your bases and invest in a HIPAA compliant phone system.
