The Administrative Simplification regulations on the Healthcare Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) establish standards of compliance to ensure the security of electronic transactions and privacy of a patient’s health. MDboss has initiated the following extensive efforts to achieve compliance with these HIPAA requirements and regulations:
- Delegating internal personnel the responsibility of implementing, supervising and ensuring all transactions that take place are within the guidelines of the HIPAA rules and regulations.
- Extensively training personnel in HIPAA’s privacy rules and other related areas.
- Implementing a HIPAA Addendum in the form of a Business Associate Agreement with all its clients and vendors outlining the privacy and confidentiality of a patient’s health information.
- Establishing a secure and safe way to store PHI (Protected Health Information) in the cloud.
