LiveHelpNow's Focus on Healthcare Privacy
LiveHelpNow offers HIPAA-compliant chat and email communications for collecting sensitive medical data. It prioritizes data security, access control, and ease of use. The software also ensures compliance with healthcare privacy regulations. This makes it a valuable tool for any organization that handles sensitive healthcare information.
What is HIPAA?
HIPAA (Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act) is a United States federal law. Its primary purpose is to safeguard the privacy of patients’ healthcare information. HIPAA establishes regulations for the protection of individual health information, known as PHI. All healthcare providers, health plans, healthcare clearinghouses, and any business that handles PHI must comply with HIPAA.
Why is HIPAA important?
HIPAA ensures that personal health information remains confidential. This protection is vital for maintaining patient trust in the healthcare system. It guarantees patients that their sensitive information will not be disclosed without their consent. It also preserves patient privacy, promotes transparency, and maintains the integrity of healthcare data.
Experience The Power of Secure Patient Communications
LiveHelpNow provides organizations with a safe and easy way to gather medical information via live chat or email. For example, HIPAA-compliant secure forms encrypt data during transmission. This protects the data from unauthorized access or interception. It also gives healthcare agents the ability to view and categorize information without security risks.
Secure Live Chat on Lock
Protect patient information during live chat interactions with end-to-end encryption, secure data storage, and access controls. These securities allow patients to experience enhanced accessibility and convenience. They’ll also enjoy the peace of mind that comes from secure communications. The best part is that your healthcare team will be able to safely collaborate in real-time, leading to better patient care coordination.
Air-Tight Support Ticket Software
LiveHelpNow’s ticket management software serves as a safeguard to protected health information (PHI). It fosters communication among healthcare providers, staff, and patients. while maintaining strict adherence to HIPAA regulations. For your staff, this HIPAA-compliant ticketing system means streamlined administrative processes, reduced paperwork and enhanced operational efficiency. Ultimately, contributing to improved patient care and the preservation of individuals’ privacy rights.
How LiveHelpNow Makes HIPAA Preservation Possible
Preserving HIPAA in live chat 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 has 256-bit encryption, MFA login access, file transfer control, IP restriction, and data purge features.
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
LiveHelpNow live chat and email ticket software is SOC2 compliant. SOC2 is a security framework that specifies how organizations should protect consumer data. This includes having a Risk Assessment against vulnerabilities and how to handle them. It also covers physical security (like handling hardware/documents), network security (ensuring secure servers and IT network), and verification penetration testing documents.
LiveHelpNow Business Associate Agreements (BAAs)
HIPAA-covered organizations must have a business associate agreement (BAA) in place with each of their partners to maintain HIPAA compliance. LiveHelpNow is willing to sign one with our customers as our pledge to protect your patients’ PHI. This is essential in avoiding potential legal penalties and maintaining trust in the healthcare system.
Employee Training To Safeguard PHI
It’s important to partner with a provider that’s willing to train your staff on how to ensure your live chat and email communications safeguard PHI. Your LiveHelpNow Account Manager will guide you on how to set up your live chat and email ticket management accounts for HIPAA compliance. This also includes training on how to use the secure forms feature. Let us help you hit the ground running.
