When it comes to patient privacy, there are many issues to consider, with HIPAA Compliance at the top of the list. At Answering Service care, we have both you and your patients protected at every stage of the information-exchanging process.
You’ve heard of HIPAA. One of the main aims of HIPAA, or the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996, is to protect the confidentiality and security of healthcare information. As your medical answering service, we are considered a HIPAA “business associate,” meaning that we are required by law to take these laws and regulations as seriously as you do (in other words, we must be HIPAA compliant, too). When it comes to exchanging, transmitting and storing secure patient-related information, we take our HIPAA compliance responsibilities and obligations very seriously.
