Healthcare

Under the HIPAA Omnibus Rule, cloud providers (Microsoft, Google, AOL, Yahoo, etc.) are considered Business Associates and are required to sign Business Associate Agreements. Microsoft is the only large cloud provider that will sign a Business Associate Agreement. This makes Microsoft Office 365 the perfect platform for Covered Entities (medical practices, hospitals, etc.) and Business Associates.

Improving the health of the population, enhancing patient care, and reducing costs is not easy, but cloud technology can help. Storing information and working online—or in the cloud—has a lot to offer healthcare practices like yours. Microsoft cloud solutions can help you comply with HIPAA privacy and security standards, in addition to giving your employees easy access to what they need from wherever they are.

Exchange Online Email

Covered Entities and Business Associates use email to communicate about patients. Physicians may ask about test results of patients; Physician Assistants may communicate patient conversations to other employees; billing staff may share patient account status, etc. Each of these examples most likely involves the sending of Protected Health Information (PHI) via email. This information needs to be secured and using Microsoft Exchange Online makes it easy!

Get business-class email, calendar, and contacts on your PC, phone, and web browser. Exchange Online lets you increase productivity and safeguard your organization, while maintaining the control you need. Run your email on Microsoft globally redundant servers, protected by anti-malware and anti-spam filters and supported by 24/7, IT-level phone support.
