HIPAA, HITECH Compliant Solution Designing & Development
True end-to-end security for easy compliance
Rapid changes in 21st century healthcare technologies is becoming a challenge for hospitals, healthcare organizations and clinical workflows as physical theft, unauthorized access, data disclosure and physical loss becomes all too common security issues for digital PHI sharing and storing systems. Today, however, patient data and protected health information (PHI) is largely governed by privacy and security rules asserted through the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability (HIPAA) Act and the Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health (HITECH) Act to ensure ethical practices of providers to protect their patient’s data. As the penalties arising from the violation of these security standards become more serious and costly, healthcare organizations become more aware, asking for messaging applications, digital systems and solutions that are designed to meet security requirements under HIPAA and HITECH through encryption, authentication and other security protocols.

Our video hosting, conferencing and messaging solutions are not only encrypted for high-level security but also help you extend your practices by enabling you to deliver healthcare to your patients absolutely anytime and anywhere.
HIPAA and its Requirements
for Healthcare Solutions
HIPAA (Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act) is a federal law that was passed by Congress in 1996 to protect the privacy of your personal health information. HIPAA has been effective in reducing health care fraud and abuse by allowing healthcare providers access to information that allows them to perform their jobs efficiently and enforcing industry-wide standards for protected health information in an electronic environment.
Well-designed HIPAA-compliant solutions should factor in potential theft or fraud into its application architecture by adding authentications and giving application admins the remote capability of disabling encryption keys to sensitive PHI information. Folio3’s truly secure and HIPAA-compliant messaging services provide you the benefit of:
- Powerful authentication and authorization access
- Encrypted data messaging for network & transit
- End-to-end data encryption on mobile devices
- Fully integrated auditing capabilities & archive history
- Enabling secure photo and video sharing
- Creation & monitoring of private or patient-specific groups
- Instant lock-out and erasing of data on stolen devices
Understanding HITECH Compliance
HITECH (Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health), also called the HITECH Act legislation was enforced in 2009 to ensure the implementation of electronic health records (EHR) and supporting health information technology in the United States for the exchange of protected health information.
HITECH tackles the privacy issues connected with the digital transmission of healthcare information as it toughens the civil and criminal enforcement of HIPAA standards with severe penalties for violation. HITECH-compliant solutions empower healthcare organizations with reliable communication systems and applications that instantly deliver secure messages to healthcare personnel, ER trauma teams, on-call nurses and more. Organizations completely reliant upon IT infrastructures require HIPAA and HITECH-compliant messaging and video conferencing solutions that are powerful enough to share sensitive data across several departments, agencies and geographical locations.
