Frequently asked questions

What is HIPAA?

HIPAA, the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act, is a US federal law designed to ensure the privacy and security of individuals' protected health information (PHI). It is a standard recognised worldwide. HIPAA establishes a set of security protocols for protecting electronic health information. If a breach occurs, HIPAA requires entities to notify affected individuals, the Secretary of Health and Human Services, and, in some cases, the media. This foundational law ensures the utmost privacy and security of patient health information. It sets national standards to protect individual medical records and personal health details, crucial in today's digital healthcare landscape.

Is AI HIPAA compliant?

AI itself is not inherently HIPAA compliant or non-compliant. Compliance with HIPAA depends on how AI technology is implemented and used within a healthcare setting. For an AI clinical note-taking tool to be HIPAA compliant, it must adhere to the regulations set forth by HIPAA, particularly in terms of safeguarding protected health information (PHI), ensuring data privacy and security, and adhering to specific standards for handling and transmitting health information. PatientNotes is a HIPAA compliant clinical notes tool that utilises AI to generate medical letters, patient summaries, reports and other medical documentation.

What is a BAA?

A Business Associate Agreement (BAA) is a legal contract that protects the data exchanged between entities. It is a formal declaration of how Personal Health Data will be created, received, maintained, and transmitted (such as when processing and/or storing ePHI). We encourage all our US customers to enter into a BAA with PatientNotes.
