Enable HIPAA Compliance in Your Mobile Communication
HIPAA, the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act, mandates how sensitive health information is organized, stored, reviewed and distributed. Maintaining HIPAA compliance ensures any and all information related to a person’s health, condition and well-being is kept private and secure at all times.
The problem that HIPAA poses to healthcare organizations is that maintaining compliance is extremely restrictive to communication, especially within the mobile channel. Any and all Protected Health Information (PHI) has to be kept secure when stored, encrypted when transmitted and protected upon delivery to a user’s mobile device to ensure compliance. Traditional mobile communication channels such as SMS were not designed to support secure communication and therefore are not HIPAA-compliant, meaning other methods have to be used to transmit PHI.
At mobileStorm, we have overcome these challenges for healthcare payers and providers by creating one of the first HIPAA-compliant messaging solutions. The platform leverages our own proprietary technology to deliver encrypted, password-protected messages directly to smartphone apps via our AppMail™ inbox. Our secure SDK allows you integrate our secure messaging solution within your existing mobile applications, or we can build you an app from the ground up. By making it possible to transmit PHI and other sensitive data directly to users’ smartphones, it enables healthcare organizations of all types to carry on highly relevant and condition specific communication with members that isn’t possible without a secure solution.
