Is your website HIPAA compliant and how to ensure it meets HIPAA standards?

  • Data Encryption. All information that is transmitted, stored and archived must be encrypted to always keep your customers’ PHI safe and sound;
  • HIPAA SSL Certificate. SSL stands for Secure Socket Layer, and you must hold this certificate. It gives your portal one more protection layer and allows transmission of private data to and from your health-associated website in a reliable way;
  • Logging Use and Access to Data Records. Everytime someone monitors secure data records that belong to your portal, it must be logged. It’s a useful option in case a violation occurs, so it will be clearly seen who had recently accessed this data;
  • Minimizing Availability of Secure Data. If you handle a huge amount of protected health information, sometimes it can be difficult to maintain its security. So tokenization comes in assistance. It’s a process that replaces original data with especial symbols or numbers. And it works as a good shield against cybercriminals;
  • Authentication and IP Blocking. One more thing you can apply to meet HIPAA demands is authentication. You just need to link your site hosting server to authentication credentials, so no one else can infiltrate your system. Besides, you can block certain IP addresses to be confident they won’t have access to your medical portal.
