The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) is a set of regulations that govern the handling and protection of protected health information (PHI)

PHI is any information that can be used to identify a patient, including name, date of birth, social security number, and medical records. Businesses in the healthcare industry that deal with PHI must take the necessary steps to protect their patients' data from exposure. Failure to do so can result in some very hefty fines as well as criminal prosecution.

Checklist

Who Needs HIPAA-Compliant Answering Services?

HIPAA-compliant answering services are recommended for any business that handles PHI, but can be especially beneficial to the following types of companies:

Doctor's Offices

Doctor's Offices
Whether you own a small, one-person clinic or a multi-location practice, it's important to have a HIPAA-compliant answering service in place. By outsourcing your phone answering to a professional service, you can rest assured that all of your patients' information is protected.

Hospitals and Medical Centers

Hospitals and medical centers are required by law to be HIPAA compliant. This means that they must have a comprehensive security plan in place to protect their patients' data. A HIPAA-compliant answering service can help by providing secure phone triage services to handle patient inquiries as well as handling patient appointments.

Healthcare Insurance Providers

Healthcare insurance providers are also subject to HIPAA regulations. If you run a medical billing service or handle claims for an insurance company, it's important to have a HIPAA-compliant answering service in place. Not only does this ensure that your clients' data are secure, but it also helps you avoid hefty fines and penalties if you are ever audited.

Pharmacies

If you run a pharmacy, it's important to be HIPAA compliant in order to protect your business and the privacy of your clients. That's why AnswerHero offers HIPAA-compliant virtual answering services designed specifically for pharmacies. We can help you take calls, schedule appointments, and process prescriptions while ensuring that all of your clients' data are safe and secure.
