Is the Safely App Secure and HIPAA complaint?

 

Short answer, yes! Safely is built with the same technologies and security measures as the nation’s leading health systems. Your data is as secure with us as it is with your normal doctor, if not more so! Health records are encrypted and anonymized and delivered to the App using secured frameworks recommended by the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS).

And now a longer and more technical answer...

Health records are encrypted and anonymized and delivered to the app using secured frameworks recommended by the Department of Health and Human Services, including HL7, FHIR, and Direct. The front-end app stores the user’s Patient Health Information (PHI) data in encrypted form using the native security frameworks for iOS and Android which have proven security records eluding the most determined hackers (including recently, the FBI). The Safely Platform leverages the HITRUST Common Security Framework (CSF), a certifiable framework that provides a comprehensive approach to regulatory compliance and risk management. 

The Safely Platform is hosted on Azure Health Cloud, which unifies security controls to meet federal and state laws, such as HIPAA/HITECH, state law, into a single framework that has been audited for HIPAA/HITECH compliance and is HITRUST Certified. Safely is also a Carequality Implementer, whose members include leading EHR vendors and healthcare systems, to securely transfer PHI data between providers and diagnostic labs.
