The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) Privacy and Security Rules were established to protect the privacy of patients and ensure the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of protected health information (PHI). These rules apply to all forms of PHI, no matter where PHI is collected, stored, processed, or maintained. This means, among other things, that every medical practice, clinic, pharmacy, nursing home, and healthcare provider must adhere to HIPAA rules when they have a website that collects, processes, stores or transfers patient information.
At Global Reach, we understand the responsibility organizations in the healthcare industry have in protecting sensitive patient information. That is why we are dedicated to making data security and HIPAA compliance a top priority for the healthcare websites we develop. Our SiteViz MD content management system (CMS) incorporates fully integrated website tools and procedures to ensure your patient’s personal information is always safe.
SiteViz MD Features Make it Easy to Achieve HIPAA Compliance
We know navigating HIPAA compliance can be complex for hospitals, clinics and other healthcare providers, so our SiteViz MD content management system (CMS) makes it as simple and straightforward as possible to achieve HIPAA compliance for your healthcare website.
All patient data collection forms as well as job application forms are fully encrypted both at transit and at rest. No sensitive information is transmitted via email.
Control at your fingertips
You can determine who can manage patient data collection forms, who can see the data and even view access reports. Our intuitive user interface makes permission management easy for healthcare organizations of any size.
Our real time reports allow you to see who has accessed specific patient data. You can also see real time reports of all data that a specific user has accessed.
Not only data is encrypted at transit and at rest, backups of your HIPAA compliant healthcare website are also encrypted.
HIPAA-Compliant website analytics
Our website analytics software is fully HIPAA-compliant and a more secure alternative to Google Analytics. It is used by NASA, The United Nations, and the European Commission. This helpful healthcare marketing tool has been integrated into our SiteViz MD CMS and delivers valuable reports regarding website traffic and allows campaign tagging.
Compliance with standards and regulations
By choosing SiteViz MD, you gain a trusted partner committed to safeguarding your patient’s data. Like you, we take HIPAA compliance seriously and our commitment to data security goes beyond just meeting HIPAA requirements. To that end, we are also compliant with the following standards and regulations which provide additional layers of protection for personal data in general.
- The European General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR) that was enacted in May 2018 and has become a benchmark on how personal data needs to be treated in the US and the rest of the world.
- The California Consumer Protection Act (CCPA) that was enacted in November 2020 to address the increasing concerns about the sale and collection of personal information in California and the subsequent amendment to the CCPA in January 2023, which has come to be known as the California Privacy Rights Act (CPRA).
- The Service Organization Control Type 2 (SOC2) principles which define criteria for managing customer data based on five “trust service principles,” security, availability, processing integrity, confidentiality and privacy.
We hope that with the above, we have gained your confidence that by choosing Global Reach as your website provider and SiteViz MD as your content management system, you will gain a trusted partner committed to safeguarding your users' data.
