SimpleVisit uses secure communications to transfer all information, including protected health information (PHI). When used with encrypted video clients such as FaceTime, Skype and Google Hangouts, all data is encrypted using the same security level as (or better) used by financial institutions online.
We use a variety of security technologies and procedures to help protect your patient information from unauthorized access, use, and disclosure. For example, we store the personal information you provide on computer servers with limited access, and located in physically controlled facilities.
We request all clients alert us, if at any time, they obtain access information that is not theirs. By emailing firstname.lastname@example.org we are better able to identify potential issues with incorrect access privileges. This identification also allows SimpleVisit, if required, to notify appropriate parties of a HIPAA violation.
