HealthLens’ proprietary telemedicine software secures and stores all patient data in compliance with all HIPAA regulations. Furthermore, our company has implemented strict protocols, policies, and procedures that meet or exceed HIPAA Security Rule guidelines.
HealthLens’ telemedicine software uses advanced security protocols to protect patient and provider data in compliance with HIPAA & HI-TECH guidelines. Security protocols include:
The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA) is a federal law that standardized security protocols for protecting sensitive patient health information, also known as “protected health information” (PHI) from being disclosed or accessed without the patient’s consent or knowledge. The US Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) issued the HIPAA Privacy Rule to implement the requirements of HIPAA.
The HIPAA Security Rule protects a subset of information covered by the Privacy Rule called “electronic protected health information” (e-PHI). This is health information that is transmitted or maintained electronically.
