Ensuring HIPAA Compliance with Cloud Services | eFax Corporate®

Thank you for your Whitepaper request!

eFax Corporate is the world’s leading online faxing service which lets your business fax online by email securely and cost-effectively.
Healthcare covered entities and their Business Associates now need to prepare for two threats; the growing threat of cyber-attacks, and the ramp-up of the HIPAA Compliance Phase 2 Audits by the Office of Civil Rights of the Department of Health & Human Services (OCR-HHS).
Healthcare Business Associates in particular need to be aware that the program to extend the audit program to BAs got underway in the fall of 2016.

The fact is, healthcare is a prize target of cyber-criminals. No one is immune from this threat. And the government is taking the threat to the privacy and security of patient information very seriously. Any provider who does not make all reasonable efforts to protect confidential patient information could find themselves the subject of an audit investigation.
Those that have assumed that traditional methods such as fax were a safe way to communicate protected healthcare information (PHI) may be in for a surprise, because the OCR receives numerous complaints about breaches of privacy involving traditional fax processes. And sending patient information over unsecure email is a clear violation of HIPAA privacy and security regulations.
