Why being PHIPA compliant matters:
InterFAX provides technical, physical, and procedural security measures to ensure the confidentiality and integrity of faxes sent in the healthcare industry.
Cloud-based technology is quickly transforming the way Canadian businesses operate, which has resulted in an increased demand for more resilient and comprehensive cloud computing infrastructures. For document-driven, crucial service industries like healthcare, the integrity of data is a top priority, which means that healthcare providers are seeking communications solutions that adhere to compliance mandates while enhancing the ability to provide fast, reliable, and superior patient services. Our PHIPA compliant cloud fax solution helps EMR providers and healthcare organizations send faxes while aligning with PHIPA regulations to ensure secure, reliable information flow and exchange.

What is PHIPA?
The Personal Health Information Protection Act (PHIPA) is a comprehensive piece of legislation that addresses complex issues concerning the collection, use, and disclosure of personal health information. PHIPA makes it mandatory for Canadian-based healthcare providers and organizations to improve the efficiency of electronic transactions while ensuring the security and confidentiality of information.
PHIPA has changed the way healthcare organizations send, receive, and store confidential patient information. Organizations must implement security and privacy measures that protect the confidentiality and integrity of personal health information being transmitted electronically. Thus, PHIPA 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 PHIPA fax solution in the healthcare industry.
