Xilium stands out ahead of the competition because of its strict adherence to HIPAA. The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) has been active in United States legislation since 1996. Since then, HIPAA has become a globally recognized guideline for safeguarding protected health information (PHI). Sensitive data in the medical field mostly refers to patient data. Companies that are concerned with PHI are best trusted when they comply with HIPAA standards. But just does HIPAA work?
HIPAA compliance is actually a series of many safeguards. Xilium makes sure that the data is not just lying around somewhere in a filing cabinet or on a computer – all data is on cloud storage. Physical and networking safeguards commonly entail very limited and secure access to the information. There are levels of technical security procedures that one is required to go through before any of the data can be touched. Not everyone in the company is granted access – lessening the tendencies of internal leaks. There are also constant auditing and tracking procedures involved to be able to pinpoint holes in security.
Offshore companies offering medical assistant services are beyond the reach of United States law should HIPAA compliance be violated. However, Xilium makes it a personal guarantee to constantly be on par with such standards regardless of the threat of penal proceedings. We take our security and your business seriously – the best manifestation of which is our continued adherence to HIPAA.
