With the huge growth of mobile and cloud connected telephony, you may have heard about the benefits of a using VOIP and a softphone system vs your traditional phone system but what is VoIP and what is a softphone anyway? What are the real benefits? How can using a softphone positively impact your business, cut costs, unify and secure your communications? RingRx can help you get smart about a HIPAA compliant communication system and now the company has launched an app, a softphone that meets your needs to make calls on the go.
What is VOIP? For you, the caller, a VoIP phone system works the same way as a traditional Public Exchange phone (PBX). But unlike your landline phone, VoIP phones cost less to use and also give you more functionality than a landline phone. According to the VoIP Report, “VoIP sends voice over the Internet just like any other data like emails or web browsing gets sent. The data uses “fire and forget” technology. For example, once you dial the number on a VoIP phone, the “line” does not stay open. The data packet containing the phone number gets transmitted and forgotten. The system converts the number into an IP address and moves it along the data stream along with all the other Internet transmissions. Hence, the VoIP line does not stay open
A traditional phone line, once the phone is dialed, remains connected. When the other person picks up the phone, the line stays open. The periods between words or sentences still require the line to remain open. ” With the Internet, if no one speaks then no data packet gets initiated and sent. You are not continually connected. Hence, VoIP is much more efficient at transmitting data or voice.”
In summary, VoIP is less costly, faster and better if…it’s delivered to meet your standards for HIPAA compliance. Yes, that’s the catch for the medical and mobile health practices.
The softphone is used with VoIP…and is a dynamic and unified way to deliver voice information over the internet. For businesses, the savings are significant. For doctors and therapists, the system needs to meet regulatory compliance.

But not all systems are alike. For #healthcare providers, doctors and therapists, your communications must be secure with standards that meet HIPAA compliance.
