Are you aware of the HIPAA Compliance challenges that SMS messages present to Healthcare Facilities?

We have partnered with Rackspace® to bring KnowIT to the Healthcare Industry..

With the demand for paging services declining, many progressive Hospitals around the world have adopted or are actively looking into implementing advanced communication methods to replace devices such as pagers.

Hospitals now require devices that are equipped with technology ensuring that all SMS messages are recorded and archived in order to comply with the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA).
