Your practice likely puts a lot of time and effort into maintaining HIPAA compliance, including following data privacy and security mandates. Most practices face special challenges in maintaining HIPAA compliance when it comes to paper documents, especially the integration of paper to digital processes. You may use multiple devices, including printers, scanners, faxes, and multipurpose office devices that are a hybrid of functions. Unfortunately, the risk of HIPAA violations often increases with the misuse of these office devices.
