IHDE complies with HIPAA (Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996), as do IHDE participants. Protecting the privacy and security of health information is important to the IHDE and its participants. IHDE has a Privacy and Security Committee which provides oversight of compliance and best practices.
Health information is kept secure using many technical safeguards and administrative policies and procedures. Patient health information is only available to IHDE participants that are granted access. Patient health information accessed on the system can be tracked for auditing purposes to ensure your privacy is protected.
