Is all of that data HIPAA compliant?
The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) requires all healthcare organizations and practices to ensure the privacy of their patient’s protected health information (PHI). At all times, no matter what type of information is gathered, healthcare providers must ensure personal data covered by HIPAA isn’t released or compromised without proper approval.
