Privacy and Security in Healthcare
In an age where digital data flows freely between systems, security and privacy of personal and private data are paramount. Health care providers are held to the strictest standards when passing and storing patient data, especially in digital formats. Verified Medical has been developed to adhere to the standards set out in the Personal Information Protection and Electronic Documents Act (PIPEDA) in Canada and the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) in the USA.
Our applications use bank-grade digital security signatures to encrypt transactions at capture, transmission, and storage. Data held in our medical applications resides in servers located on Canadian soil and is protected from foreign disclosure by the Government of Canada.
Our servers separate personal data from the images and documents and, in the unlikely event that our storage systems or databases are compromised, the images would have no physical link back to the data held, making them unidentifiable or linked to any individual.
When a private network of health care providers is created within Verified Medical, we use a set of roles and permissions that restrict user access and ensures that proper control is maintained over what and when data is shared. The administrator has the right to revoke these permissions at any time and the private health care network is restricted to people with whom trusted relationships and connections have been created.
Each transaction within Verified Medical is logged and a detailed audit of transactions can be carried out if required as part of one's personal license liabilities.
Our team frequently audits our security parameters and we adhere to strict protocols for account creation and management. Verified Network Inc. staff have no access to any data or systems and will be unable to access a subscriber's account.
