PIPEDA and HIPAA Compliance
Verified Medical is a mobile and web app that captures, transmits and stores personal and private information in the form of video, images, documents, taxonomy and notation. As such, the platform must adhere to the most stringent security and privacy protocols to ensure the integrity of the data we hold and manage.
In Canada, the Personal Information Protection and Electronic Documents Act (PIPEDA) governs how companies collect, use and disclose personal information as part of a business process. Verified Medical is in compliance with PIPEDA requirements.
Periodically, as part of our security protocols, we undertake third-party, independent security audits that challenge our PIPEDA compliance to ensure we maintain our high standards and remain compliant.
In the US, the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) has similar rules that govern the privacy of personal information for use in the health care system. Verified Medical has been auditied against these recommendations and is compliant under the HIPAA guidelines.
