How Healthie Approaches Security

Healthie stands as the singular EHR, patient engagement, and scheduling platform compliant with both HIPAA and SOC 2 Type 2 standards.

At Healthie, protecting patient information is at the forefront of everything we do. We understand the sensitivity and importance of personal data in the healthcare realm. The following provides an insightful overview of our comprehensive approach to Security and Privacy at Healthie.

Digital Health Infrastructure and Security

The digital health landscape has witnessed remarkable growth over the past several years, fueled by the escalating demand for accessible and comprehensive patient care. Amid this surge, Healthie emerges as a pivotal player, offering a robust infrastructure tailored to the evolving needs of the industry.

Recognizing the criticality of safeguarding electronically protected health information (ePHI), Healthie stands as the singular EHR, patient engagement, and scheduling platform compliant with both HIPAA and SOC 2 Type 2 standards. This distinction underscores our dedication to meeting industry benchmarks, ensuring both providers and patients have confidence in the security and confidentiality of their records.

In an era where innovation drives the digital health revolution, Healthie remains steadfast in its mission: to provide modern, scalable, and secure solutions that empower the next generation of healthcare providers to deliver unparalleled care outside of the hospital.

A Proactive, Comprehensive Security Stance

At Healthie we prioritize the safeguarding of ePHI by adhering to recognized healthcare security standards. Our dedicated team, complemented by external security partnerships, remains vigilant in monitoring and enhancing our protective measures.

Healthie works with Vanta - a top online security and compliance platform, to ensure that we meet all regulation requirements. Vanta consistently monitors and protects our customer data, running regular security audits to ensure the robustness of our product not just at launch, but throughout its lifetime. 

Moreover, Healthie utilizes best-in-class cloud security tools, including Aptible and AWS to construct a secure infrastructure around Healthie’s software as it is being built. This collaborative approach ensures that security is interwoven in Healthie’s products.

Ironclad processes and external assessments

The Healthie security team vets new products, vendors, and partners to ensure that they also meet our high standards for data security and privacy. As an organization we invest in continuous employee training, ensuring our team remains adept and vigilant. Our proactive security approach is multifaceted. Our specialized team anticipates threats through internal assessments, and to maintain security compliance we follow a strong set of policies and procedures. To ensure the robustness of these, a third-party assessor regularly evaluates Healthie’s security program.
