CoSign Digital Signatures Enable Compliance With New HIPAA Guidelines

ARX's CoSign® digital signature (standard electronic signature) solution provides a signing capability that satisfies the new HIPAA guidelines on privacy issues.

Chicago, IL (PRWEB) April 2, 2009 -- ARX today announced that its CoSign digital signature solution allows users to maintain compliance with the revised HIPAA regulations the United States Congress released in December of 2008, detailing the responsibilities healthcare providers have in maintaining the privacy and security of medical records.

The regulations released in the last quarter of 2008 have three principle areas that relate to digital signatures: 1) The Transparency Principle, which calls for health care providers to make a good faith effort to obtain an individual's written acknowledgment for receipt of their Notice of Privacy Policy (NPP), 2) The Individual Choice Principle, calling for a patient authorization for any use or disclosure of Personal Health Information (PHI), and 3) The Safeguards Principle, requiring the verification of the identity and authority of a person requesting PHI. CoSign digital signatures can be used to demonstrate compliance with each of the privacy regulations by capturing signature authorizations and consent, and then validating the authenticity of those signatures.

"The CoSign digital signature solution already meets the HIPAA Security requirements as presented in the Final Rule 45 CFR Part 164.312, as well as the more specific and restrictive requirements of the earlier Proposed Rule 45 CFR Part 142.310," said Mike Milton, VP of Sales, Americas, ARX. "Since the new privacy guidelines specifically mention electronic signatures as an option for identity authentication, CoSign is the ideal signature solution for healthcare organizations that need to maintain an electronic workflow from signature authorization through archival."

ARX will be attending the HIMSS09 Conference & Exhibition in Chicago, Illinois April 5-9th. During the event, ARX representatives will exhibit the CoSign digital signature solution at booth #2507. Also during the event, ARX's Healthcare Market Manager, Mauricio Pinto, will be giving a presentation titled "Using Digital Signatures to Simplify the Business of Healthcare" at the Pavilion Product Sessions. The presentation will take place April 7th from 4:15- 5:00pm at booth #8239, and it will address how digital signatures enable a fully electronic workflow and enhance collaboration for healthcare organizations.
