Today OnForm is announcing that we have achieved HIPAA compliance, the U.S. national standard for health information security and privacy. As a compliant solution provider, OnForm is now in a position to readily sign a Business Associate Agreement (BAA) with healthcare customers across the United States. OnForm is committed to the protection of our customer’s data and this is our latest effort to ensure our app meets the rigorous requirements of appropriate data protection regulations.
From the HHS website "The HIPAA Privacy Rule establishes national standards to protect individuals' medical records and other individually identifiable health information (collectively defined as “protected health information”) and applies to health plans, health care clearinghouses, and those health care providers that conduct certain health care transactions electronically. The Rule requires appropriate safeguards to protect the privacy of protected health information and sets limits and conditions on the uses and disclosures that may be made of such information without an individual’s authorization."
Stephen Hancock, National Sales Director and our Data Security Officer commented, “Our app provides greater transparency and data control to our customers and ensures our customers and their clients, patients and athletes that OnForm is serious about security and privacy. HIPAA compliance demonstrates that we are focused on privacy and unlocks many more opportunities to partner with therapists, doctors and other providers in a trusted, secure environment. Already used by hundreds of physical therapists in both private practice and within hospital systems, we intend to drive much broader adoption of our tools now that healthcare providers can be assured of our data security practices to protect sensitive personal data.”
While protecting personally identifiable information is primarily a requirement for health care and educational institutions, all of our customers are able to enjoy the benefits that HIPAA compliance provides and take comfort in knowing that your privacy and data protection is a priority.
Mr. Hancock further commented “In addition to the many new features and enhancements made to the app in 2022, behind the scenes, we were also working on the ‘unseen’ - data security and privacy infrastructure policies and procedures to help protect you and those you work with. We are proud of this accomplishment and want to let you know we are not stopping there. We are working to add additional certifications that will further demonstrate our commitment to privacy and data security.”
Ensuring customer trust is of utmost importance, and HIPAA compliance further demonstrates our commitment to you.
