Confidentiality of information

eConnexis is committed to maintaining the confidentiality of information entrusted to us by our healthcare clients, especially Protected Health Information.

eConnexis protects the confidentiality of information it receives by adhering to the requirements of the HIPAA Privacy Rule and the HIPAA Security Rule. The Privacy Rule governs the acquisition, storage, transfer and retention of Protected Health Information, in both electronic and paper formats. The Security Rule covers all information acquired, maintained or transferred electronically.

We comply with all business associate obligations under HIPAA/HITECH, enabling us to provide the highest level of service to our health carecustomers.

Compliance with HIPAA Security Rules

The Security Standards define administrative, physical, and technical safeguards necessary to protect the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of electronic protected health information from unauthorized access, alteration, deletion, and transmission. As such eConnexis has implemented the following policies:

Compliance with HIPAA Privacy Ruless

eConnexis does not disclose protected health information and only uses protected health information as authorized by our business associates.

eConnexis reminds it`s users of the responsibility to safeguard the protected health information by displaying a "Privacy Notice" each time the customer logs into the application which the user must acknowledge to gain access to the application.
