FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Addison, TX, January 11, 2008 – Long Range Systems (LRS), a producer of patient and family onsite wireless paging solutions since 1993, continues to show its innovation leadership with a transmitter that encrypts messages sent to its alphanumeric pagers. Ideal for industries where information privacy and security are of concern, the message encrypting Alpha pager is especially helping medical organizations comply with regulations set by the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA).
The establishment of HIPAA regulations has raised awareness among the medical community of the increased threats in privacy and security of medical information. LRS’ message encrypting transmitters are designed to satisfy HIPAA’s privacy safeguard requirements regarding data confidentiality. Message confidentiality is protected when medical staff sends messages between one another or to a patient or the patient’s family via an LRS transmitter. The message is decrypted when received by one of LRS’ alphanumeric pagers. The encryption protects communication, ensuring that unintended recipients can’t intercept sent data through publicly available wireless frequencies.
The encrypted alphanumeric paging is only one among several medical paging solutions that LRS has introduced to the medical community. Pharmacies, hospitals, doctor’s offices, and nursing homes have realized the benefits of LRS’ medical paging solutions:
- Improved interoffice communication
- Increased patient privacy
- Improved patient flow
- Measured patient satisfaction.
According to Jim Livingston, LRS’ Vice President of Sales, “Recognizing the major financial investments that medical organizations are already making in order to comply to HIPAA regulations, our medical paging solutions are designed to be a low cost, easy-to-install, effective solution to enhancing communication, and maintaining the privacy and security of patient information”.
