How A Virtual Medical Receptionist Supports Patient Confidentiality and HIPAA Compliant Phone Service

Medical professionals are required to adhere to specific guidelines outlined by HIPAA, the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act, to ensure their patient health information (PHI) is safe. Failure to be HIPAA compliant can lead to serious consequences and potential risks, including legal penalties and loss of patient trust.
