Bengaluru, India (23 Nov 2020) – HealthCARE360, a leading digital patient experience platform, today announced that it has been assessed for HIPAA compliance. This comes after the successful completion of the HIPAA compliance assessment carried out, by an independent auditor.
The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act, or HIPAA, was first enacted in 1996 and exists as the most widely recognized set of rules governing information security and the protection of personal health information for those involved with, or supplying goods and services to, the healthcare sector. A draft Digital Information Security in Healthcare Act (‘DISHA’) stands tallest amongst the legal frameworks in India and shows the potential India has for protecting its citizens’ health data.
The other being The Personal Data Protection Bill which along with the Information Technology Act also provides more general and blanket protections for all kinds of data.
“We are pleased to be recognized as HIPAA Compliant, a leader in cyber risk assessment”, said Ashok K, Director & Practice Head, Cloud & Security at HealthCARE360. “Given the constantly changing nature of information security risk, HIPAA compliance is now more important than ever before for our healthcare clients. This compliance marks yet another milestone for HealthCARE360 as an industry-leading patient experience platform and we couldn’t be more excited to share the news with our healthcare providers,” added Ashok.
