CULVER CITY, CA--(Marketwired - Jan 30, 2017) - eWellness Healthcare Corporation, (OTCQB: EWLL) is the first telehealth company for physical therapy to offer insurance reimbursable remotely monitored physical therapy (PT) treatments. The Company is pleased to announce that its PHZIO telehealth platform meets assurance and compliance milestones in regards to security and confidentiality standards known as HIPAA.
What is HIPAA?
HIPAA stands for the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996. It is a federal mandate that requires specific security and privacy protections for Protected Health Information (PHI). More information around HIPAA can be found here: http://www.hhs.gov/ocr/privacy/index.html
In order to gain HIPAA compliance of its PHZIO system, the Company hired EHP 2.0 as a third-party security agency to conduct independent security and HIPAA audits. EHR 2.0 follows a standards-based risk assessment program to ensure security, privacy, and administrative processes required under HIPAA are met by the Compnay's PHZIO platform. Assessments were conducted based on point-in-time analysis of systems and existing processes.
The security risk assessment was also prepared by EHR 2.0 to verify the requirements of the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), Office for the Civil Rights (OCR), Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) Meaningful Use, and other applicable state data privacy laws and regulations.
