Protect the Privacy of Student Information
FERPA gives parents certain rights with respect to their children’s education records. These rights transfer to the student when he or she reaches the age of 18 or attends a school beyond the high school level.
Parents or eligible students have the right to inspect and review the student’s education records maintained by the school.
Schools must notify parents and eligible students annually of their rights under FERPA. The actual means of notification (special letter, inclusion in a PTA bulletin, student handbook, or newspaper article) is left to the discretion of each school.
Some school health records may be subject to HIPAA, the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA), which regulates the protection of medically related PII data and may apply to schools which provide healthcare services and engage in HIPAA covered transactions such as billing health plans.
The Security Rule within HIPAA states that entities should perform a risk assessment and implement encryption if the evaluation indicates that encryption would be a “reasonable and appropriate” safeguard. If an entity decides not to encrypt electronic protected health information (ePHI), it has to document and justify that decision and then implement an “equivalent alternative measure.”
Whether your institution is small, medium or large, eFax Corporate meets these challenges by integrating and automating fax and document distribution within your existing business applications. This lets you reduce paper-based operational costs, increase staff productivity, and decrease FERPA/HIPAA regulation risks associated with stand-alone fax machines and unsecure email communications.
