What Is a HIPAA-Compliant Fax Service?

The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA) is a federal law intended to safeguard consumer health information and data privacy. HIPAA places rules and guidelines around the security of medical records and other personal health information (PHI) that could trace back to an individual. Among other things, HIPAA directly impacts the way healthcare and medical practitioners document, communicate and store their patients’ information, including sensitive PHI.

In today’s HIPAA environment, sending a fax can quickly manifest into a detailed, cumbersome and complicated procedure. Online faxing methods often fail to meet the stringent HIPAA compliance requirements due to the use of unsecured equipment or a lack of encryption. Healthcare facilities and vendors that neglect to outline comprehensive data-risk analyses throughout their organizations may incur significant financial penalties.

Our healthcare cloud faxing solution promotes interoperability by facilitating communication between EHRs, centralizing data storage and ensuring the security of sensitive information. You can also experience a substantial streamlining of your workflow processes, saving time and increasing operating efficiency.

Ensuring HIPAA-Compliant Faxing

A HIPAA-compliant cloud fax service mitigates these electronic risks. It is a solution that aims to make faxing medical information between healthcare operations streamlined and simple. Healthcare cloud faxing also has built-in safeguards to ensure adherence to every aspect of electronic information transfers as stipulated under Title II of HIPAA.

Cloud-based fax services for healthcare organizations allow healthcare professionals to securely transmit ePHI and other important fax documents to recipient’s fax devices using end-user faxing methods via web, email or directly from within their electronic health record (EHR) and other healthcare application systems ensuring security and compliance. All ePHI and sensitive patient information are transmitted over an IP network in a secure encrypted manner using the most advanced encryption technology. Any ePHI and fax documents at rest in the cloud are also kept in encrypted format at a secure data center environment, and benefits from the latest network cybersecurity strategies and frequent monitoring to ensure compliance and security. Your organization can access ePHI, medical data and important fax documents through a secure application portal, over email or online.
