HealthChampion has HIPAA Compliance Confirmed

HealthChampion, a Chicago, IL-based electronic health app developer, has successfully completed a HIPAA assessment and has been confirmed as having met the requirements of HIPAA and the HITECH Act for its health records platform.

HealthChampion empowers patients by giving them easy access to their health records. Health Champion gives patients control of their health information which allows them to take a more active role in their healthcare and obtain the information and medical services they need to help them achieve their health goals. The company believes that a patient should be able to gain access to their health information as easily as they can access their credit score.

Companies that develop software solutions that interact with electronic protected health information are required to be compliant with HIPAA. HIPAA demands safeguards be implemented to ensure the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of health information and contains numerous provisions related to the privacy and security of health data.

Privacy and security of patient data has been fundamental to the design of the HealthChampion platform, to ensure that al patient information remains private and confidential. All members of staff at the firm have undergone rigorous HIPAA training and the same training is provided to all new hires.
