Data Security and Privacy
We respect your privacy and we take care protecting it very seriously. If you have any privacy related concerns, please reach out to us on:
We are HIPPA compliant
Praktice.ai is a fully HIPAA compliant Artificial Intelligence product and the entire text messaging is done through a secure and encrypted messaging platform. All communications are transmitted within a defined network, and hospital users must authenticate their identity with a unique username and password before being able to send, receive or reply to any text message containing ePHI.
What is HIPAA and why should you care?
HIPAA (Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996) is United States legislation that provides data privacy and security provisions for safeguarding medical information. The HIPAA Privacy regulations require health care providers and organizations, as well as their business associates, to develop and follow procedures that ensure the confidentiality and security of protected health information (PHI) when it is transferred, received, handled, or shared.
If a service is HIPAA compliant, you can rest assured that your health information is completely secure and is seen only by the intended authorities of the hospital. We don't sell, redistribute, share your health information with any third party while only pass on your appointment related information to the hospital to whom this patient identifiable information belongs.
