We take security measures very seriously here at ZeeMaps. As a result, we are happy to report that we are HIPAA compliant.
HIPPA stands for Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act. Which started in 1996. It includes measures to protect patient health data. Consequently, it affects any company that deals with protected health information (PHI). Therefore, they must make sure that physical, network, and process security measures are adhered to.
We meet HIPAA requirements
ZeeMaps is HIPAA compliant. So what does this mean for our users? Essentially, all it means you can rest assured that your data is completely secure.
For example, all user information and data are stored encrypted on a database. Therefore, data are not stolen or leaked. We use one of the strongest block ciphers available to encrypt data.
In addition, multi-factor authentication provides an extra layer of security.
The diagram below shows our infrastructure design. The diagram illustrates secure traffic flow from users to the ZeeMaps environment. This traffic flow helps to endure HIPAA compliance.
HIPAA Patient-Provider Maps
You can use the secure ZeeMaps infrastructure to create patient-provider maps. First, create a spreadsheet of all your patient and provider locations. Next, add a column to the spreadsheet called Category. For values, you could enter phrases. Such as, “Patient”, “Physical Therapist”, or “Occupational Therapist”, etc.
Next, upload the spreadsheet to you HIPAA map on ZeeMaps.
Now, the map should show all your patients and providers. Including, patients and different kinds of providers colored differently.
