Easily Gain Compliance With Pharmaceutical and Healthcare Messaging Regulations
The Challenge: The Healthcare Industry Must Retain Communications
Regulated Healthcare industry companies – including hospitals, doctor’s offices, and pharmacies – are required by law to archive, retain and supervise business communications. Regulations from government authorities such as the Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act (FDCA, FD&C), Health Insurance Portability Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA), Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health (HITECH) Act, 45 CFR 164- Department of Health and Human Services, and American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (ARRA) lay out specific mandates around communications that must be retained, including those taking place over social media, mobile devices, and email platforms. Failure to comply with these rules can lead to fines and has resulted in a number of high profile enforcement cases where companies were penalized for failure to adhere to messaging compliance rules.
The Problem: Most Solutions Required You To Send Your Data To a 3rd Party Archive
How do you retain and supervise communications in order to meet compliance regulations? Most messaging compliance solutions require sending your workforce’s critical, sensitive communications to a third party data store. Moreover, these services require recurring monthly fees for the maintenance of a second archive, in addition to your existing email archive.
