Confidentiality of Health Information (HIPAA)

In its capacity as a business associate of healthcare entities, CareEvolve is fully compliant with the applicable requirements of the Federal Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA) and the recent expansions of HIPAA by the Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health Act (HITECH).


These regulations establish a framework for implementation that impacts the privacy and security of Protected Health Information by all health providers, including CareEvolve.  These regulations mandate how CareEvolve handles electronic transactions and code sets, national identifiers, and notification to customers whose unsecured PHI has been breached.


As HIPAA compliance activities advance, our focus remains on CareEvolve’s responsibilities to the patients, doctors and health care organizations we serve to ensure we meet the HIPAA standards, while not negatively impacting our ability to deliver care.
