  • HIPAA-Compliant Email and Messaging: The Benefits of a Multipronged Approach

    Originally posted in HealthTech Magazine

    Email platforms such as Microsoft Office 365 remain an important mode of communicating with and sharing information about patients. But is email HIPAA-compliant?

    The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 Privacy Rule governs how healthcare organizations use, disclose and protect patients’ personal health information. It also covers business associates, including cloud services and email providers, that handle protected health information on their behalf.

    As long as a HIPAA-covered entity secures a business associate agreement with an email provider such as Microsoft, email can comply with HIPAA rules.

    That said, a BAA alone doesn’t guarantee HIPAA compliance.

  • How IT can help support successful ACO performance

    Originally posted in Health Data Management

    Innovation Care Partners (ICP), a TigerConnect customer, made headlines earlier this year when their ACO model was among a few that met Medicare Shared Savings Program (MSSP) expectations, joining 31 percent of ACOs in meeting benchmarks and earning substantial savings. One way ICP is driving down costs is through better care coordination in the emergency department leveraging TigerConnect. ICP integrated the Orion Health HIE to TigerConnect to provide clinicians with real-time status alerts on patients. With this innovative integration, PCPs, care coordinators, and transition care managers are all alerted immediately when an ICP patient registers at the emergency department or for an inpatient admission.
