Ceilings for Healthcare and HIPAA Compliance
A balanced acoustical design solution can be a valuable component of the “reasonable privacy safeguards” mandated by HIPAA regulations. Relatively low cost in terms of initial installation as well as long-term costs, the successful use of this design solution will help to provide both physicians and their patients with the level of speech privacy necessary for them to feel more comfortable in their healthcare environment.
