HIPAA Compliant Virtual Receptionists

Ruby keeps the “privacy” in private practice.

Receptionist Hero 3

How it works.


Our award-winning, receptionist service handles and routes calls on your behalf, all based on your unique preferences.


If you aren’t available, we collect intake information, answer non-medical questions, and take messages—24/7/365.


You’ll stay up-to-date through our mobile and desktop apps, while knowing we protect the privacy of every patient.

All around, we provide a great experience—and great experiences help turn callers into patients. With Ruby, you can put down the phone and focus on what you do best. We’ll take care of the rest.

Dialed in on empathy.

No way! There are no additional charges for customers who need HIPAA compliant service. Regular receptionist service and/or chat service charges apply.

The primary difference is that with HIPAA compliant service, messages and caller information will not be emailed and/or texted to you, but rather will be available via a secure method. More specifically:

  • Your messages, voicemails, and call details will be available in the Ruby App (which sends notifications) and on our online portal at my.ruby.com.
  • Outbound call assist requests will be placed through the Ruby App – and the confirmation messages from our outbound call team will be available in the Ruby App and on my.ruby.com.
  • If you have a HIPAA compliant scheduling tool, that our Receptionists can access without a login, they can make appointments for your callers.

You will access your messages, voicemails, and call details via our online portal at my.ruby.com and/or the Ruby App (which can provide push notifications). This allows the sensitive information collected from your callers to remain secure.

You may submit an outbound call assist request securely through the Ruby app. The confirmation messages from our team after the outbound call is complete are available in the call assist logs in the Ruby app and on my.ruby.com.

Yes. If you have a HIPAA compliant scheduling tool, that our Receptionists can access without a login, they can make appointments for your callers.
