Why Should You Work with a HIPAA-Compliant Healthcare Mailing Provider?
HIPAA-compliant mailing services are essential for maintaining patient privacy and security. By choosing a HIPAA-compliant service and implementing appropriate safeguards, healthcare providers can ensure that PHI is kept confidential and secure. This is not only a legal requirement but also an ethical obligation to protect sensitive patient information. HIPAA-compliant mailing services adhere to strict security protocols and guidelines, including the encryption of electronic transmissions, secure storage of physical records, and limited access to PHI by authorized personnel only.
When choosing a healthcare mailing service, it is important to confirm that the provider is HIPAA compliant and has a good track record of maintaining patient privacy and security.
At FSSI, we welcome your healthcare-related document outsourcing needs. We offer end-to-end print and mail solutions, backed by HIPAA-compliant privacy and data security practices.

What is HIPAA? Why is it Important to Mailing Healthcare Related Documents?
The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) is a federal law enacted in 1996 that sets national standards for protecting the privacy and security of individuals’ health information. HIPAA applies to all entities that handle protected health information (PHI), including healthcare providers, health plans, and healthcare clearinghouses.
HIPAA requires that PHI be kept confidential and secure, with appropriate safeguards in place to protect it from unauthorized access or disclosure. This is especially important in healthcare mailing services, as mailings often contain sensitive information such as test results, treatment plans, and billing information.
HIPAA Compliance in Healthcare Mailing: What You Need to Know
To be HIPAA compliant, healthcare mailing services must implement physical, administrative, and technical safeguards:
- Physical safeguards: These include measures such as locked doors and restricted access to PHI storage areas.
- Administrative safeguards: These include policies and procedures for protecting PHI, as well as training for employees on HIPAA regulations.
- Technical safeguards: These include measures such as secure servers and encryption to protect PHI from unauthorized access or disclosure.
- Risk management process: Healthcare mailing services should conduct regular risk assessments to identify vulnerabilities and have a plan for addressing any identified risks.
