RabbitSign Achieves HIPAA Compliance for its Free e-Signing Solution

RabbitSign, a Palo Alto, CA-based provider of a free-to-use, unlimited e-signing solution, has been assessed by Compliancy Group’s HIPAA compliance experts who determined the solution is compliant with the HIPAA Rules.

RabbitSign was devised and developed during the COVID-19 pandemic as a zero-cost e-signing solution for businesses, non-profits, and government entities, with the company providing the solution for the greater good rather than to maximize profits.

All software solutions used by HIPAA-covered entities which come into contact with the protected health information of individuals must support HIPAA compliance. Since the e-signing solution could be used in connection with electronic PHI, RabbitSign would be classed as a business associate under HIPAA if the solution was provided to HIPAA-covered entities.

To broaden its userbase and allow HIPAA-covered entities to use the solution, RabbitSign partnered with Compliancy Group and used the company’s HIPAA compliance methodology to take all the necessary steps to ensure compliance with the HIPAA Privacy, Security, Breach Notification, Omnibus Rules, and the HITECH Act. The company’s progress toward HIPAA compliance was tracked using Compliancy Group’s HIPAA compliance tracking software solution – The Guard.

Through that process, which involved a 6-stage risk analysis and remediation program, RabbitSign demonstrated its good faith effort toward HIPAA compliance, and the company was awarded the HIPAA Seal of Compliance, which demonstrates to current and future users of the solution that the company is committed to ensuring the security of ePHI and has an effective HIPAA compliance program in place.

“Free HIPAA-compliant e-signing is something our users have been asking for,” said Stanley Zhong, Founder & CEO of RabbitSign, “I founded RabbitSign in response to COVID in order to lower the cost of e-signing to zero for as many businesses, nonprofits, and government entities as possible. Providing HIPAA-compliant e-signing for free is RabbitSign’s way to help lower healthcare costs in the US. Compliancy Group has been a crucial partner in making that happen.”

“Compliancy Group congratulates RabbitSign on the successful completion of Compliancy Group’s Implementation Program, showing their good faith effort to achieve HIPAA Compliance and differentiating them in the e-signing industry,” said Charlotte Barenz, VP Implementation, Compliancy Group.
