RingCentral Announces HIPAA-Compliant Solution for Health Care Customers
San Mateo, Calif. – January 15, 2015 - RingCentral, Inc. (NYSE: RNG), a leading provider of cloud business phone systems, announced today that it now offers a fully HIPAA-compliant RingCentral Office® solution. The new RingCentral HIPAA Business Associate Agreement (BAA) Program delivers assurance to healthcare organizations that RingCentral has implemented HIPAA safeguards.
RingCentral’s HIPAA-compliant solution ensures that customer calls and messages are secure with encryption in transit and at-rest, along with other features, protecting patient data and guarding against unauthorized access to protected health information.
The RingCentral HIPAA BAA Program gives health care organizations access to RingCentral’s cloud-based business communication systems for maximum efficiency and reliability. Now, hospitals, doctor’s offices, insurance providers and other health care entities have greater assurance when using RingCentral to securely communicate about patient care.
“The transition to digital communications and electronic patient records is enabling incredible efficiencies in the healthcare industry, and now with our RingCentral HIPAA BAA Program, we’re able to unlock the door to provide our industry-leading solution to this large, high-value market,” said David Berman, President with RingCentral.
Employing some 18 million people, the U.S. health care industry is a major market, accounting for almost 16 percent of total U.S. GDP. In addition to the size of the industry, the fact that physicians, specialists, nurses and support staff increasingly work out of many different locations means that nearly all rely heavily on mobile technology, plus a wide range of other communication methods (fax, text, video and web meetings) to securely share patient information. This makes health care a prime vertical for RingCentral’s newly HIPAA-focused, mobile-centric, integrated communications solution.
