As a healthcare data management company, we understand the robust data security protocols that must be in place. Additionally, since we’re handling protected health information (PHI), everything we do meets or exceeds HIPAA guidelines. 

How We Maintain Strong Security Protocols

We maintain the highest security and data protection with annual risk management assessments. We also always encrypt PHI data in transit or at rest. Further, we employ two-factor authentication for access to data. 

We have a rigorous culture of security and compliance. Our IT team ensures that all employees are well-versed in security protocols. Employees also receive yearly HIPAA compliance training. 

Our Business Associates Agreement (BAA) is also an integral part of our security process. The BAA outlines the obligations of all parties, identifying how we will adhere to HIPAA and Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health (HITRUST).

We are dedicated to ensuring the security, privacy, and accessibility of your data. In our over two decades in business, we’ve never had a PHI breach.

HIPAA requires that we put into place administrative, physical, and technical safeguards. Our policies address all these areas.
