Ditech Networks Certifies PhoneTag Voicemail-to-Text Services As HIPAA Compliant

Ditech Networks (NASDAQ:DITC), a leading provider of advanced voice processing solutions, today announced HIPAA compliance for its PhoneTag voicemail-to-text services. Ditech can now offer HIPAA compliant PhoneTag services for those companies requiring this level of compliance for their own products and applications. PhoneTag is offered at three service levels of increasing accuracy: fully automated, auto/human hybrid, and fully human service.

HIPAA provides national minimum standards to protect an individual’s health information. HIPAA was originally created to streamline healthcare processes and reduce costs, while ensuring individual consumer privacy. The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) maintains, manages and enforces these standards.

“HIPAA compliance marks a major milestone we’ve reached with our PhoneTag offering,” said Ken Naumann, CEO of Ditech Networks. “This milestone opens up options for healthcare related industries to leverage the tremendous value and productivity enhancement that PhoneTag voice-to-text services can provide.”

PhoneTag customers, in non-healthcare industries, also benefit further from Ditech’s increased focus on privacy and security. PhoneTag offers a breadth of voice-to-text services, from mass market automated to enterprise-ready hybrid solutions, and is available in multiple languages. PhoneTag is available directly from Ditech Networks or through a number of application partners. More information can be obtained at www.ditechnetworks.com.
