HIPAA is a U.S. regulation that safeguards the privacy and security of individuals’ health information (PHI). Specifically aiming to safeguard the privacy of patients and health plan subscribers.
Hospital and other medical apps have access to a lot of sensitive data. Not only do they store personal information such as contact information, social security or insurance numbers. They also keep records of medical history, prescriptions, and notes from healthcare providers. With the rise of online consultations, even telehealth communications are stored. Handling patient data comes with significant responsibilities, as healthcare data is sensitive and protected by various privacy and security regulations, such as the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA).
For medical apps to be compliant with HIPAA, business should regularly review information system activity, implement solutions to detect and mitigate security incidents (including malicious software) and alert authorities and clients in case of a security incident.
