HIPAA-compliant software is any digital platform or application for the healthcare industry that includes all the privacy and safety measures stipulated by the HIPAA (Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act) regulation. Any kind of software that is aimed at providing solutions related to healthcare needs to be tested and assessed to ensure that its features and functionality comply with HIPAA since failure or inadequacy in doing so would result in serious legal consequences. This has resulted in the establishment of best practices for developing HIPAA-compliant software.
Healthcare is a service industry, hence to achieve operational efficiency, healthcare providers are required to improve service delivery while reducing costs.
Custom HIPAA compliant website development can improve overall operations by streamlining the collection, retention, accessibility, and transfer of sensitive patient data. Efficient websites can also help improve service value and enhance patient experiences.
Healthcare personnel is a critical component of operational efficiency, and HIPAA compliant web development systems increase employee satisfaction. These automated and swift methodologies help physicians save time, provide better care, and reduce maintenance costs.
Healthcare organizations are leveraging technology to build their company websites and applications to improve patient experiences. Through custom HIPAA compliant website development, an organization is more likely to gain credibility and attract patients that are dissatisfied with their current healthcare provider.
People prefer relevant and easy-to-follow, interactive websites that help them submit forms online, and access results and prescriptions faster. Patients also like provider websites and applications with simple billing and processing interfaces. These easy-to-follow websites can translate into a higher volume of patients and provide the organization with a competitive advantage in the industry.
Reducing costs is a top priority for all industries, including the healthcare industry. Many healthcare facilities think that HIPAA compliant website hosting is expensive, but the truth is it can help companies save money in the long run. Moving your IT infrastructure, data, and applications to reliable cloud platforms can significantly reduce costs. Also, you no longer have to worry about non-compliance penalties that usually run into thousands of dollars.
A personalized HIPAA compliant web development system takes care of many aspects of security, making database management more effortless.
Work overload, physician burnout, mental stress, not enough patient interaction are some of the challenges faced by most doctors and other healthcare professionals.
HIPAA compliant website hosting automates several administrative functions within the healthcare organization, giving healthcare professionals more time to breathe and attend to pressing issues.
The operational efficiency of an organization increases with easy access to patient data, lab reports, and other information and the ability to upload important documents. Employee satisfaction increases and attracts talented and skilled professionals to the organization.
HIPAA compliant web development systems follow a secure, controlled, and streamlined process for sharing patient health information. Dual-factor authorization is a critical requirement for HIPAA compliance, which requires two forms of identification to gain electronic access to patient data. Security rule, Privacy rule, and Enforcement rule are some other rules implemented in HIPAA compliant websites to ensure patient health information is protected.
Customized websites automatically analyze historical patient data and search through volumes of reference to provide a holistic and efficient report to the physician through predictive analysis. Through the use of open systems, data collected automatically, and intelligently helps doctors with actionable insights.
Patient Protected Health Information (PHI) is highly important for medical care. PHI contains data about existing health problems, immunizations, allergies, history of substance abuse, and so forth. Doctors need to access this data to know about a patient's condition before they can prescribe a test or medication. OSP can develop HIPAA-compliant software to ensure that patient data isn't lost or accessed unauthorizedly. This allows doctors to make informed treatment decisions.
A breach of patients' confidential health information results in legal consequences for providers. Additionally, if a software application causes or facilitates data losses, whether directly or indirectly, the company that developed it could also face stern legal action. However, if a company adheres to HIPAA compliance software development procedures, it minimizes the chances of loss and misuse of data and has considerable protection from liability.
Software that is aimed at healthcare organizations will invariably end up working with sensitive data about patients. Whether it is a provider organization, an insurance payer, or even patients using a software platform, the knowledge of HIPAA compliance for software development fosters faith in its security measures. Knowing that an application adheres to HIPAA regulations increases the trust factor in the minds of all application stakeholders.
