Is Hullomail HIPAA compliant? - Paubox

Visual voicemail transcriptions are in demand for healthcare professionals. Like with any other communication method, it’s important to consider HIPAA compliance when choosing a provider that can enable voicemail transcriptions.

Hullomail may be one option to transcribe your voicemails, but does it meet security guidelines for HIPAA?

Is Hullomail HIPAA compliant?

A business associate agreement (BAA) is critical to establishing a business relationship with a third-party provider. It’s a legal document that states the duties and responsibilities of a business associate in regards to keeping protected health information (PHI) secure. Any third-party provider that has access, stores, or transmits PHI will need to sign a BAA.

If a business associate won’t sign a BAA, then it’s not a HIPAA compliant vendor for covered entities.

Hullomail doesn’t mention it is willing to sign a BAA on its website. It also mentions in its terms of use that people will take a risk if they use Hullomail. “Please be aware that internet transmissions are never completely private or secure and that any message or information you send using the App or any Service may be read or intercepted by others, even if there is a special notice that a particular transmission is encrypted.”

Conclusion

Hullomail isn’t HIPAA compliant. It lacks the ability to participate in a BAA since it doesn’t have the appropriate safeguards in place to protect PHI.
