MegaPath today announced that its business communications services, including Hosted Voice, Contact Center and Unified Communications, have successfully passed an annual HIPAA audit. This accomplishment demonstrates MegaPath’s ongoing commitment to delivering communications solutions that help healthcare organizations effectively serve their patients while safeguarding sensitive health information and adhering to industry regulations, said the company.
The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA) provides data privacy and security provisions for safeguarding medical information, specifically the saving, accessing and sharing of medical and personal health information, and standards for protecting electronic protected health information (PHI). In accordance with HIPAA requirements, MegaPath offers an Attestation of Compliance (AOC) and, on request, a Business Associate Agreement (BAA) that details each party’s rights and obligations for safeguarding PHI.
“It’s essential for healthcare organizations to focus on providing the highest quality of medical care for their patients, while also ensuring that their personal health information is protected against unauthorized access,” said Arnaud Gautier, Chief Marketing Officer, MegaPath. “Completing the annual HIPAA audit is just one example of MegaPath’s continued commitment to delivering communications services that address our healthcare customers’ technology and security challenges.”
