ARX has announced that its CoSign digital signature solution allows users to maintain compliance with the revised HIPAA regulations the U.S. Congress released late last year, detailing the responsibilities healthcare providers have in maintaining the privacy and security of medical records.
"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 attended the HIMSS09 Conference and Exhibition in Chicago, Illinois April 5-9th. During the event, ARX representatives exhibited the CoSign digital signature solution at their booth. Also during the event, ARX's Healthcare Market Manager, Mauricio Pinto, gave a presentation titled "Using Digital Signatures to Simplify the Business of Healthcare" at the Pavilion Product Sessions.
