If you need medical printing services or other secure printing services, Presort has you covered. We understand that you need to protect your patients’ protected health information (PHI), so we maintain HIPAA compliance when we perform printing services for medical statements. Let’s look at why secure printing matters and how we implement it for your medical practice or healthcare facility.
In this post, we’ll cover:
- Why medical statements need secure printing services
- Whether you should outsource your medical printing services
- The types of statement printing we offer
- Examples of our secure printing services in action
Medical statement printing has to be secure to comply with the HIPAA Privacy Rule. The Privacy Rule is the portion of the Healthcare Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) that outlines what types of patient information must be protected. It also outlines how to protect that information to stay compliant with the Rule. The Privacy Rule applies to healthcare providers, health plans, healthcare clearinghouses, and their business associates. Healthcare business associates include businesses that may handle or process patients’ PHI.
How does this relate to printing? Many people think of HIPAA in terms of IT and keeping PHI safe during electronic transmissions of patient data. However, all professionals covered by the Privacy Rule must also protect PHI when it’s printed into paper form. Patient bills are examples of PHI in paper form. HIPAA printing PHI rules matter because no one wants their personal, protected information compromised. At Presort, we print and mail your bills, letters, questionnaires, and other forms while keeping your patients’ PHI safe.
You could print your business’s medical statements with in-house resources. However, to do that successfully, you either need to have the printing resources already available in your facility or invest in them directly. Does your company have the budget to invest in printing equipment and software? If not, consider outsourcing your statement printing to a company like Presort. We have the resources to print your statements securely and send them to your patients quickly and efficiently.
We mainly provide variable data printing (VDP) services for medical statements. As a variable data printing company, we use our VDP capabilities to customize personal information from one printed piece to the next. We use this ability to protect your patients’ PHI while also tailoring their mail pieces to each person. Our VDP services are just one type of digital printing service that we offer, and we can combine other services with VDP to meet your statement printing needs.
