Retarus featured in new Healthcare Secure Document Delivery Report
Munich, 09.05.2018 // Retarus, global cloud messaging provider, today announced a new whitepaper on Healthcare and Secure Document Delivery with an emphasis on the future of fax. Mark Malone, cloud-based fax industry expert and the author of the healthcare whitepaper, outlines how the evolvement of strict data privacy regulations and mandatory compliances have elevated the role of cloud applications, making it imminent for many industries, especially healthcare.
HIPAA (Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act) regulations have mandated hospitals and other healthcare providers to reevaluate their existing models of data transmission. Ease of access to information online or mismanagement of private documentation transmitted over a fax machine makes it a challenge for the healthcare providers to safeguard highly sensitive patient data. In his whitepaper, Mark Malone outlines the importance of vetting cloud providers to ensure a rock solid HIPAA compliant solution, not only for data security but for avoiding hefty fines and penalties.
“Given the complexity of regulations such as HIPAA and HITECH, more companies are now adopting cloud solutions for its competence and preeminent security benefits”, says Steve MacDiarmid, President & CEO, retarus North America. “Mark Malone’s comprehensive whitepaper is a good reference guide for healthcare providers to choose a cloud solution that meets their compliance objectives and helps them improve their ROI significantly.
