06 Mar FollowMyHealth and HIPAA
FollowMyHealth is HIPAA-compliant. It adheres to mandated encryption standards when receiving, sending, and storing a patient’s health information. When a provider invites a patient to create a UHR account, the provider makes that contact directly with the patient or, to the extent Allscripts assists in that process. Allscripts does so as a business associate of the provider, and pursuant to a HIPAA-compliant business associate agreement.
