HIPAA Compliance

My Country Moblle understands how important it can be to give customers peace of mind that their data is safe. Our cloud communications platform uses the most reliable and up-to-date technology to protect your organization’s data.

What is HIPAA?

The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (also known as HIPAA) is a US federal law that protects patient health information (“PHI”) without patient consent. Any company that handles any type of PHI should ensure that security protocols are in place.

Who is HIPAA applicable to?

HIPAA is applicable to Covered Entities as well as the business associates that provide services to them or process or handle ePHI/PHI. HIPAA-covered entities require business associates to sign a HIPAA-compliant business associate agreement (“BAA”), which details the HIPAA Rules the business associate must follow.

Is My Country Mobile able to offer a business associate arrangement?

If you are a Covered entity and My Country Moblle is handling or processing e-PHI then My Country Moblle provides a BAA at the service’s start. Call recordings that contain PHI can be stored externally and managed on your own secure server. Customers who use Amazon Web Services (AWS), have this flexible solution. Soon, SFTP will be available. Find out how easy it can be to store call recordings externally using our call recording storage system.
