HIPAA Compliance

Adaptive Telehealth Takes HIPAA Compliance Very Seriously
There is a lot of confusion in the marketplace about HIPAA compliance and telemental health software. Technically speaking, software cannot be HIPAA compliant because software itself is not a "Covered Entity" (which is a person or organization). When a software states they are "HIPAA Compliant" they are most often referencing their encryption of data and their willingness to sign a Business Associate Agreement (BAA). HIPAA compliance involves much more than encryption and a BAA. It is a comprehensive program of adminstrative, physical and technological controls (encryption is just one) that work together to protect the electronic Protected Health Information under the Final HIPAA Omnibus Rule.

Adaptive Telehealth goes way beyond many other software companies to provide for your HIPAA security. Our HIPAA security is headed by Jay Ostrowski, a HIPAA compliance expert who has created trainings in HIPAA compliance for telemental health for SAMHSA, HRSA, the Telehealth Resources Centers, NBCC and CCE.
