What Makes A Professional Image Answering Service HIPAA Compliant?

Jan 4, 2023

HIPAA compliance is a living culture that health care organizations must implement within their business to protect the privacy, security, and integrity of protected health information.  Since A Professional Image answering service is considered a Business Associate, we take Privacy and Security Rules very seriously.

Since there is no official HIPAA certification available to our industry, we have partnered up with VanRein Compliance.  VanRein conducts a yearly Risk Assessment, provides timely HIPAA and Privacy training for our staff, and keeps API up to date with any new rules and regulations. In addition to having a 3rd party compliance partner, API has several policies and procedures in place to protect data.

We also provide:

  • Secure Message App and desk top version
  • Encrypted Email
  • Encrypted Servers
  • Signed Business Associate Agreement (BAA) with all medical clients
  • On-going HIPAA and Privacy training with staff
  • Secure systems for disposing of confidential information
  • Secure Web Portals
