SAN MATEO, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--IntelePeer, a leading Communications Platform as a Service (CPaaS) provider, announced today Atmosphere® CPaaS is now compliant with the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA), the U.S. national standard set for health information security and privacy. IntelePeer is committed to the protection of its customers’ data and ensuring its solutions meet the stringent requirements of applicable data protection regulations.
With the current climate forcing healthcare companies to move forward with digital transformation, protection of data continues to grow in importance with the growth and changes in telehealth, e-commerce, and remote workers. Malicious activities are on the rise and according to an April 2020 Healthcare Breach Report published on May 20, 2020 in the HIPAA Journal, 39.82 million healthcare records were breached over the past 12 months and the majority of breaches in April were through phishing attacks via email. Healthcare providers need to address the move to remote healthcare, changing communication preferences, and how to secure patient data. IntelePeer’s HIPAA-compliant Atmosphere® CPaaS helps solve critical pain points healthcare companies are seeing as they move to digital experiences with strained budgets and small IT departments.
