HIPAA Compliance Checklist [Download]
Establishing and maintaining HIPAA compliance for healthcare applications can be a time consuming and frustrating ordeal for developers. From the administrative safeguards that the business needs to implement, to the technical and physical safeguards that require software architecture and custom development, the process can add months to a development timeline and expensive technical debt that requires ongoing attention and refactoring.
Unfortunately, using HIPAA-ready hosting like Amazon’s AWS and securing your databases isn’t enough to be compliant. That’s why we created TrueVault as a developer friendly solution to HIPAA compliance. Our backend-as-a-service combines a secure and compliant healthcare API and data store to connect, power and secure your healthcare applications. TrueVault meets the technical and physical safeguards mandated by HIPAA.
Whether you do it yourself or use a third party, HIPAA compliance is important for health apps. That’s why we’ve created this HIPAA compliance checklist to help you navigate the requirements in order to be HIPAA compliant.
