Avoid the lawyers

Doctors are in a bind. Use of the camera on phones is so widespread, and the benefits so broadly accepted that it could be considered the "standard of care". But, you are ...

Damned-if-you-do

Using current standard practices, hospitals and doctors (personally) are at risk of a compliance officer dishing out massive fines for breaching privacy regulations.

Damned-if-you-don't

If you don't use the camera on your phone, patient lives are at risk, patient care suffers, and there is a legal risk due to not delivering the standard of care.

PicSafe® solves this problem. For more, download the free PDF, "The Ten Commandments of Mobile Phone Clinical Photography".

Six scary problems when capturing patient photos, video or audio

patient data stored on phone

There's patient data stored on your phone. What happens if you lose it?

auto uploaded to cloud accounts

Photos are often auto-uploaded to cloud accounts. There have been breaches in the past.

not transmitted securely

Patient data often isn't transmitted safely and can be intercepted.

not stored securely

When shared, patient data often isn't stored safely by recipients.

no record of consent

There's no record of consent. No consent can lead to trouble if there's a dispute later!

The PicSafe® Solution

Encrypted

The PicSafe® app encrypts all data and media before being sent.

Patient Consent

Patients can either sign on the screen or record verbal consent.

Audit Trail

Access to reports is logged and is therefore traceable (geo/time/device stamped).

Easy-to-use

PicSafe® is super easy to use, just like the camera app on your phone.

AES-256 Encryption

We use Advanced Encryption Standard 256-bit keys

Most people will not need to know this but, we also use CBC mode, password stretching with PBKDF2, password salting, random IV, and encrypt-then-hash HMAC. What you do need to know is that there are no known cases of this encryption having ever been "cracked".

Security Tested

PicSafe® has undertaken independent Vulnerability Assessment and Penetration Testing (VAPT). See the PicSafe® Security page for more.

Why Risk HIPAA Fines & Penalties?

Sending patient data unencrypted is like sending a postcard. Content, as it travels across the Internet, can be easily intercepted leaving you exposed to HIPAA violations and fines.

* HIPAA's Security Rule (Security Standards for the Protection of Electronic Protected Health Information, found at 45 CFR Part 160 and Part 164, Subparts A and C) requires: ENCRYPTION (A) - 164.312(e)(2)(ii) - You must, "Implement a mechanism to encrypt electronic protected health information whenever deemed appropriate." STANDARD 164.312(e)(1) Transmission Security - You must, "Implement technical security measures to guard against unauthorized access to electronic protected health information that is being transmitted over an electronic communications network.".

Why is PicSafe® free?

PicSafe® is free and will always be free.

We realized that if we charged for the app, doctors might continue to send photos insecurely using the default camera and messaging apps on their phones. This practice is dangerous, and we want to help. Full disclosure, we also have an ulterior motive! We have a "PicSafe® PRO" version with some advanced features. The free version (PicSafe® Basic) will suit most people but if you want some advanced features, find out more here. We also have an enterprise license that allows institutions easy integration of PicSafe® into patient medical record systems.
