HIPAA. The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act and a word that can immediately place an uneasy feeling in your stomach. As healthcare providers, we have direct access to a patient's very personal health information record, as well as a responsibility to keep this information under lock and key.
We've all heard the stories-identity theft, tax or insurance fraud, fines, a potentially devastating lawsuit, and even prison time. The list goes on and on of the catastrophes that can happen when HIPAA is violated.
DOPS takes HIPAA security very seriously. All patient information is stored off-site on a cloud-based, HIPAA-compliant server. This was put in place to not only protect patient information from those with a wrong agenda, but also to protect you and your livelyhood from unneccesary lawsuits and malpractice claims. We all have enough to worry about throughout the day. When you're using DOPS, there's no need to worry about your patient photos getting in the wrong hands.
Let DOPS be an easy step in the direction towards peace of mind.
