No, Grasshopper has affirmed that it is not HIPAA compliant.
Grasshopper has informed that it isn’t HIPAA compliant. Its website states that support team members have access to account information and settings to help with technical issues. This access includes all messages that pass through Grasshopper’s calling, texting, and faxing features.
If protected health information (PHI) passes through these communication tools, then it’s possible for unauthorized individuals to access the information. Grasshopper doesn’t offer HIPAA-compliant services, so covered entities shouldn’t use these tools.
Grasshopper offers a virtual phone system for businesses, with a dedicated phone number to link to your existing cell phone. This service enables business owners and staff to maintain the privacy of their personal numbers, with a second business line for calls, texts, and incoming faxes.
