HIPAA WEBSITE SECURITY

Beyond|Med Telehealth takes calculated steps to ensure technical, physical and administrative information transmission and storage safeguards. As medical professionals who handle sensitive health information, we, are considered a “covered entity,” held to the highest standards of upholding data privacy policies. We are committed to protecting your data in accordance with the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 Privacy Rule (HIPAA). Please be advised that we apply appropriate and effective methods to de-identify you from your Personal Health Information (PHI) once it is collected; however, although the risks are very small, it is not zero, and there is a possibility that the protected data could be linked back to the identity of the patient to which it corresponds.

 

WHAT IS HIPAA?

The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act became law in August 1996. Known as HIPAA, it was designed to set in motion a series of widespread measures focusing on simplifying the processing and distribution of medical information, improving the portability of health Insurance, giving patients access to medical information, and protecting patient data that is stored, processed, or transmitted across public networks.

WHAT'S A "HIPAA-COMPLIANT" WEBSITE?

A website that is "HIPAA Compliant" is one that provides the physical and technological security measures required to ensure that any patient information, physician-patient correspondence and other sensitive information remains secure,

confidential and unable to be digitally intercepted or otherwise accessed by outside parties. In short, a "HIPPA-compliant" website means all required steps have been taken to keep private information private - It's a "safe" website.

IS THE BEYOND|MED TELEHEALTH WEBSITE “SAFE?"

Yes, the Beyond|Med Telehealth website is safe. Since our website (https://www.beyondmedcare.com) can transmit and/or store patient information, we have ensured that our website complies with all current HIPAA guidelines. We are pleased to reassure people that our Internet security measures are continually updated and monitored and that all patient results transactions are protected and safe.

 

HOW IS MY INFORMATION PROTECTED?

Encryption: We use HTTPS validated by an SSL. HTTPS is a security protocol that helps your site stay secure. This protection is validated by an SSL certificate. Hyper Text Transfer Protocol Secure (HTTPS) is the secure protocol through which your browser communicates with sites.

 

When you transmit personal information to us, we encrypt it using  a Secure Socket Layer, the industry-standard encryption technology. Encryption provides a secure means to protect your information as it passes over the internet to our servers.

 

An SSL Certificate, or Secure Sockets Layer, allows Beyond|Med site visitors to view our site over an HTTPS connection. It secures the connection between your browser and ours. As a general rule, you can see if a site has an SSL certificate if the URL begins with https:// instead of http://. When using HTTP sites, any data that is transferred can potentially be accessed or manipulated by attackers. However, when using HTTPS sites, like Beyond|Med’s website, data is encrypted and authenticated and therefore secured. A site URL that has not enabled an SSL certificate shows an “i” icon in Google Chrome. If a site URL shows a closed lock icon in Google Chrome, that is an indication that its SSL certificate has been enabled, which is the case for Beyond|Med Telehealth.

  • Beyond|Med site visitors' information is encrypted, and therefore more secure.

  • Beyond|Med users can feel more comfortable paying for services and sharing their personal information online when visiting our secure site.

  • As a precaution: Google Chrome now displays warnings anytime you visit a site that is not using HTTPS. Therefore, if that site is not secured, you will get a warning message.

 

BROWSER SECURITY

We’d like for you to be able to safely and securely use our site on your personal device(s). Keeping that in mind, some older browsers don’t support the high security standards required by SSL certificates. 

 

Unsupported browsers include: 

  • Google Chrome versions older than 6

  • Internet Explorer versions older than 7

  • Firefox versions older than 2.0

  • Safari versions older than 2.1

  • All versions of Internet Explorer on Windows XP

Unsupported mobile browsers include:

  • Safari browsers running on an iOS version older than 4.0

  • Android browsers running on a version older than 3.0 (Honeycomb)

  • Windows Phone browsers running on a version older than 7

 

Visitors accessing the Beyond|Med Telehealth site on these browsers may have trouble loading the HTTPS version of our site. To avoid these issues, we recommend using a supported browser to view our site.

Please make sure you have downloaded the latest versions of the following supported browsers.

Supported browsers for desktop devices:

  • Google Chrome

  • Safari for Mac (version 12 and above)

  • Microsoft Edge

IP ADDRESSES

We do not trace our visitor’s IP addresses through our site. We also do not use external tools to provide that feature, such as Google Analytics.

 

ANALYTICS

Our analytics provides aggregate information that does not identify an individual, but an entire group of people. For instance, we quantify how many new clients versus returning clients we have within a certain period, without any personal data being attached to a single visitor.

 

POLICIES AND PROCEDURES

We continuously evolve and update our internal information security policies and our business continuity and disaster recovery plans. We perform risk assessment, security audit, and system-test activities on an ongoing basis. Our employees and contractors receive frequent training and/or reminders regarding information security and protecting the confidentiality of your information.

 

STANDARDS AND REGULATIONS

We are committed to meet or exceed regulatory and industry self-regulatory guidelines regarding privacy, confidentiality, and information security. On an ongoing basis, we will review and adapt to statutes, regulations, formal private-sector standards, and informal policy guidelines as they apply. In particular, we will comply with all applicable provisions of the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) rules for information security as those take effect.

 

USER PASSWORDS

When you register with our third-party patient portal, your personal information is password protected, so only you have access to it. It is your responsibility to ensure the security of

your User ID and password.

If you believe this security has been violated, please contact Patient Ally by phone, (888) 747-4255.

USE OF COOKIES

The Beyond|Med website may use “cookies” to help you personalize your online experience. A cookie is a text file that is place on your hard disk by a web page server. Cookies cannot be used to run programs or deliver viruses to your computer. Cookies are uniquely assigned to you, and can only be read by a web server in the domain that issued the cookie to you.

 

One of the primary purposes of cookies is to provide a convenience feature to save you time. The purpose of a cookie is to tell the web server that you have returned to a specific page. For example, if you personalize Beyond|Med pages, or register with Beyond|Med site or services, a cookie helps Beyond|Med to recall your specific information on subsequent visits. This simplifies the process of recording your personal information, such as billing addresses, shipping addresses, and so on. When you return to the same Beyond|Med website, the information you previously provided can be retrieved, so you can easily use the Beyond|Med features that you customized.

 

You have the ability to accept or decline cookies. Most web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually modify your browser setting to decline cookies if you prefer. If you choose to decline cookies, you may not be able to fully experience the interactive features of the Beyond|Med services or websites you visit.

We encourage our users to be aware when they leave our site and to read the privacy statements of any other site that collects personally identifiable information.

Beyond|Med secures your personal information from unauthorized access, use, or disclosure. Beyond|Med uses the following methods for this purpose:

  • SSL Protocol

 

When personal information (such as a credit card number) is transmitted to other websites, it is protected through the use of encryption, such as the Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) protocol.

Unfortunately, no data transmission over the internet or any wireless network can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, while we strive to protect your personal information, you acknowledge that: (a) there are security and privacy limitations inherent to the internet which are beyond our control; and (b) security, integrity and privacy of any and all information and data exchanged between you and us through this Site cannot be guaranteed.
