Is voip hipaa compliant? we just put in voip in a phsyician offices, they are forwarding voice mail to email, and it's not encrypted.  How would you encrypt this type of email?  Is the voice mail itself subject to HIPAA because it's transmitting over a computer network and not on an analog line as it was before?  I know voip is used in lots of medical facilities, so how is it configured to meet hipaa?
