Is HIPAA faxing safe for highly sensitive documents?

Yes, using a HIPAA-compliant fax service is safe for transmitting highly sensitive documents. It ensures secure handling and protects against unauthorized access, effectively preventing HIPAA violations.

How is cloud HIPAA-compliant faxing secure vs email?

HIPAA faxing offers enhanced security compared to email, as emails often lack sufficient security for contents and attachments. Faxing, whether through traditional phone lines or secure online cloud systems, safeguards information from unauthorized access, making it a safer option for transmitting sensitive data.

What is a HIPAA-compliant cover sheet?

A HIPAA-compliant fax cover sheet, necessary for both online and traditional faxing, acts as a safeguard, ensuring that any inadvertent viewers at the receiving end are aware of the fax's confidential nature. It should not contain any Protected Health Information (PHI) but must include a confidentiality notice, the total page count (cover sheet included), sender's name and fax number, recipient's name, and the subject of the fax, without disclosing any PHI.

Do I need a HIPAA-compliant fax machine?

No, a HIPAA-compliant fax machine isn't necessary. Cloud fax services compliant with HIPAA use multifactor authentication and encrypt faxes from sending to receipt, accessible only via specific decryption keys, ensuring unauthorized individuals cannot view the faxes.

Is a HIPAA-compliant fax API available?

Yes, mFAX offers both a secure web application and an embeddable API call for HIPAA fax services.

What types of healthcare entities use HIPAA compliant fax?

Healthcare entities such as hospitals, clinics, insurers, and providers utilize HIPAA-compliant fax services to secure PHI as part of their comprehensive security measures.

Does mFax have a HIPAA compliant fax app?

Yes! mFax provides a HIPAA-compliant fax app featuring a Business Associate Agreement, multifactor authentication, secure connections, and file encryption for comprehensive security.

Does mFax offer HIPAA compliant fax to email?
