HIPAA is legislation that provides data privacy and security provisions for safeguarding medical information. This is Ambs Call Centers answer to HIPAA compliance.
For those in the healthcare industry, meeting the privacy expectations of HIPAA is a primary concern, both legally and ethically. A HIPAA compliant phone answering service is critical.
At Ambs Call Center, we share your concern and have taken extra measures to go beyond the standard expectations of securing your patients’ PHI (Protected Health Information).
We stand behind you, the CE (covered entity), as your trustworthy BA (business associate) to ensure you’re in compliance with HIPAA regulations.
As your call center fiduciary, we take every step to make sure you meet HIPAA requirements and your patients’ expectations in the way we answer patient calls, store their information, and communicate key data to you.
Not every call center or answering service can say this, but Ambs Call Center can.
Texting is easy, ubiquitous, and
With Ambs Call Center’s secure text messaging app, text messages and attachments are encrypted when they are in transit (“data in motion”) and when they’re at rest on devices (“data at rest”). Messages can even be set to expire after a preset time or condition for added security. If a device is lost or stolen, your authorized admins can remotely erase secured messages.
SM+ is that good. You can depend on it, just as you rely on us.
In information technology jargon, “data at rest” refers to digital information as it resides in a storage medium, regardless of the form or format it takes, such as databases, spreadsheets, archives, long-term storage media, and off-site backups. Data at rest also refers to information sitting on mobile devices.
Ambs Call Center encrypts all data under our control when it’s at rest. And, by using our secure messaging plus platform, the information we send to users’ mobile devices is also secure.
The myAmbs Web Portal gives healthcare organizations confident and secure access to an array of powerful applications that allow you to view data and reports, retrieve messages and information, update contact information and on-call schedules, and access our Web Appointment Scheduler.
Real-time access is available from any computer and uses responsive design so it looks great on your phone or tablet.
In addition to ensuring that we meet and exceed HIPAA requirements, 100 percent of our agents work onsite, with direct supervision.
Ambs Call Center does not allow work-at-home agents or offsite call processing, thereby ensuring that your patients’ PHI never leaves our premises until it’s time to securely communicate it to you.
Though we trust our staff completely, we take this additional, extraordinary step so that you can place your complete confidence in all we do for you.
