How LiveHelpNow Makes HIPAA Preservation Possible

Preserving HIPAA in live chat, SMS and email communications requires more than basic security. It involves a series of safeguards to protect the privacy of patients’ personal health information. This is why LiveHelpNow software provides 256-bit encryption, strict password policies, MFA login access, file transfer control, IP restriction, and data purge features while maintaining high level of productivity for your care team.

Encrypted Chat, Text, and Email Communications

256-bit encryption ensures that all PHI exchanged is encrypted (in transit and at rest) to prevent unauthorized access. It is a method that employs a complex security key. This makes it highly difficult for unauthorized individuals to access protected data. 256-bit encryption also ensures protection of lost or stolen devices. No matter what, the data stored on them remains inaccessible to unauthorized individuals.

MFA Log-In Access

MFA login combines password validation and phone (or email) verification, adding a second layer of security. After a user enters his/her password, a second code is sent to a selected phone number or email. Only after the agent enters the received code will account access be granted. Even if a user’s login credentials are compromised, MFA can prevent unauthorized access because attackers would need physical possession of the second authentication factor.

Access Control, IP Restrictions, and Data Purge

Unauthorized access to PHI can lead to severe consequences, including data breaches. LiveHelpNow access controls include logging and auditing capabilities. This allows organizations to review log-in attempts and detect any suspicious activity. The live chat and email software’s IP restrictions help block requests from unapproved locations. In addition, LiveHelpNow’s data purge feature ensures personal health information is automatically purged from the system. So, it is never stored on a server.

Cyber Security Compliance
