What is HIPAA? The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) is a US law which was passed in August 1996 with two main intentions:
– Improved efficiency in healthcare delivery by standardizing electronic data interchange, and
– Protection of confidentiality and security of health data through setting and enforcing standards.
More specifically, HIPAA rules ensure:
– Standardization of electronic patient health, administrative and financial data
– Unique health identifiers for individuals, employers, health plans and health care providers
– Security standards protecting the confidentiality and integrity of “individually identifiable health information,” past, present or future.
Who must comply with HIPAA? Virtually all healthcare organizations – including all healthcare providers, public health authorities, health plans,, healthcare clearinghouses, and self-ensured employers – as well as life insurers, information systems vendors, various service organizations, and universities.
Are there penalties for violation?
HIPAA calls for severe civil and criminal penalties for non-compliance, including:
– Fines up to $25K for multiple violations of the same standard in a calendar year
– Fines up to $250K and/or imprisonment up to 10 years for knowing misuse of individually identifiable health information
How does Vocantas comply with the HIPAA security and privacy rules? Vocantas will not use or disclose patient health information in any manner which violates HIPAA Privacy Standards. All communications with our IVR solutions are sent through a secure encrypted tunnel between your office and the Vocantas data center. Our servers are located in state-of-the-art data centers that provide a highly secure physical infrastructure. Our data centers are engineered to eliminate any single point of failure, with multiple layers of redundancy in power systems, HVAC, and fire detection and suppression. All systems are monitored 24 x7.
Are appointment reminders allowed under the HIPAA Privacy Rule without authorizations? Yes, appointment reminders are considered part of treatment of an individual and, therefore, can be made without an authorization.
