What is HIPAA?
The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) makes it mandatory for health care providers and organizations to improve the efficiency of electronic transactions, while ensuring the security and confidentiality of information.
HIPAA has changed the way healthcare organizations send, receive, and store confidential information. Organizations must implement security and privacy measures that protect the confidentiality and integrity of “individually identifiable health information” being transmitted electronically. Thus, HIPAA regulations affect the security measures required when faxing medical data between healthcare providers, patients, and other entities. This is a key factor in choosing a HIPAA fax solution in the health care industry.
We have used InterFAX for our bulk fax needs for multiple years and have found it to be simpler and more efficient to work with than other fax service providers. We particularly enjoy the ability to communicate securely through InterFAX’s API/web service.
