Is PicSafe HIPAA/HITECH compliant?

Other FAQs

HIPAA stands for the the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 and HITECH stands for the Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health Act (2009). These two US laws aim to encourage the use of technology in the health care industry while building security and privacy protections for Protected Health Information (PHI).

There is no official HIPAA or HITECH certification and therefore no one tool can say they are "compliant". What we can say is that you can use PicSafe in a way that is compliant with HIPAA/HITECH regulations.
