e2b teknologies announced today that the company’s Anytime Collect credit and collections management software now provides HIPAA compliance options through the company’s cloud hosting partnership with Microsoft Azure.
“We’ve had growing interest in Anytime Collect from companies in medical-related businesses,” said e2b teknologies President Lynne Henslee. “The first question they ask is how they can ensure that the data security is HIPAA compliant. Our partnership with Microsoft Azure as a cloud hosting platform provides our Anytime Collect customers with access to more information about how their sensitive customer data is stored on the Microsoft Azure cloud with details on how they can ensure that they remain in compliance with HIPAA requirements through Microsoft Business Associate Agreement.”
Following is the official statement on the Microsoft Azure Compliance Website:
"HIPAA and the HITECH Act are United States laws that apply to healthcare entities with access to patient information (called Protected Health Information, or PHI). In many circumstances, for a covered healthcare company to use a cloud service like Windows Azure, the service provider must agree in a written agreement to adhere to certain security and privacy provisions set forth in HIPAA and the HITECH Act. To help customers comply with HIPAA and the HITECH Act, Microsoft offers the Business Associate Agreement to customers as a contract addendum.
"While Windows Azure includes features to help enable customer’s privacy and security compliance, customers are responsible for ensuring their particular use of Windows Azure complies with HIPAA, the HITECH Act, and other applicable laws and regulations, and should consult with their own legal counsel."
Anytime Collect is one of the most affordable options for smaller medical practices to manage their accounts receivable collections. Anytime Collect is also available for larger businesses using popular mid-market accounting or ERP business applications. Pricing information is available upon request.
