The federal Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act — better known as HIPAA — was instituted in 1996 in order to protect the confidentiality and security of private healthcare information. It’s the law that says your doctor’s can’t share your info with anyone, unless you’ve given them permission.
It’s also the law that’s been giving doctors headaches for almost two decades now.
Because HIPAA is a governmental requirement, there’s almost no paperwork involved.
SIKE! Hahahahhahahaha — there’s obviously a lot of paperwork involved in becoming and staying HIPAA compliant. There are rules and regulations galore. Keeping track of all of them can be a serious nightmare for the people who really should be focusing on making sure their patients are healthy, not on keeping the right pieces of paper in the correct order.
Accountable is a company that makes HIPAA compliance easy by helping any business or doctor’s office that falls under HIPAA laws make sure that they’re compliant. It walks you through each step toward compliance via a clean, simple to use dashboard. It even helps you stay compliant by guiding you through all the things you need to do every year, including employee training with their fun training videos and a seven-part analysis for the annual risk assessment.
Accountable also includes a section to execute and maintain Business Associate Agreements with an e-signature, which means you can finally ditch that fax machine that’s mostly just a dust catcher anyway.
Protecting patient confidentiality is super important, not only because it’s the law, but also because it’s the right thing to do when you’re dealing with something so personal as people’s health. Unfortunately, providing that protection is extremely difficult. So, Accountable delivers one thing that anyone who regularly has to deal with HIPAA regulations is undoubtedly craving: peace of mind. Head over now and start easily untangling the gordian knot that is HIPAA for as little as $99 per month.
