Healthcare Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA)
The Healthcare Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) was signed into law on 21st August 1996 to combat waste, fraud, and abuse in health insurance and healthcare delivery. HIPAA set standards of your PHI.
When we do online business, it comes to my mind that the internet is such a huge, ever-changing landscape, our comprehension around HIPAA regulations for websites is intentionally vague at times. In short, HIPAA fundamental approach is to provide a set of rules that are designed to ensure that any entity that collects, maintains, or uses confidential patient information handles it appropriately.
Although our business is not required to adhere to the principles of Protected Health Information (PHI ), our company anticipated the fundamental theory of HIPAA.
Indeed, we reviewed our approach and we are delighted to share with you some critical upgrades we recently made as follows :
- Moving up into a private cloud hosting where our data remain safe, secure, and unchallenged.
- Introducing back in 2015 our Premier Extended Validation SSL Certificate in our website to give users, customers, patients and partners a high level of confidence and conformity of our business to perform : online payment, check out process, reservation number, and so on.
- Rebuilding a new, robust and booking system to perform simulations and payment.
