NEWARK, N.J. – Oct. 31, 2017 – Phone.com has partnered with the Compliancy Group to ensure their VoIP business phone systems are complaint with HIPAA and HITECH for healthcare professionals.
HIPAA and HITECH are regulations governing medical data privacy. Healthcare professionals are required to safeguard patient medical information and a compliant secure phone system is one part of that requirement.
With a growing number of healthcare providers, from sole practitioners to major hospitals, looking to ditch traditional phone companies and their high rates, adding HIPAA and HITECH compliance allows Phone.com to be a top choice in the field.
“HIPAA and HITECH compliance are extremely important for many of our customer,” said Phone.com CEO Ari Rabban. “We’re offering compliance without strings, no additional fees, no additional setup.”
With the compliance now in place, Phone.com offers:
- A complete, secure HIPAA and HITECH compliant phone service for healthcare professionals.
- Encryption for data in motion and at rest.
- A system that works with the Phone.com app on iOS and Android, soft phones on PC and Mac, and compatible desk phones.
- No additional fees over Phone.com’s class leading pricing.
- Business Associate Agreements (BAA).
- No additional setup or hardware required.
“We have many new customers in the queue for compliance, and we know that a significant number of our current clients will benefit from compliance,” said Phone.com SVP of Strategic Partnerships and Alliances Joel Maloff, who is also Phone.com’s HIPAA compliance officer. “We’ve ensured that any patient information is encrypted and that all of our employees are trained in compliance.”
While some healthcare professionals believe VoIP is not required to be HIPAA compliant, we believe that the ability to store and record information such as voicemails and calls makes it a compliancy issue and took this step to protect our current and future healthcare clients.
