Many doctors and their office staff are looking for the right HIPAA-compliant services and software that will somehow transform their medical practice into being HIPAA-compliant. The fact is that software tools and software services can not be HIPAA-compliant, simply because software is a tool and not a business practice. It is important to understand that the term "HIPAA Compliance" refers to an organizational obligation and procedural integrity, but not to a technical specification or particular software tool.
HIPAA regulations do not apply to AppointmentQuest scheduling services since AppointmentQuest does not perform insurance, payment or related transactions (HIPAA transactions), and does not collect any medical history from patients. Nevertheless, AppointmentQuest Online Appointment Scheduler implements multiple features that help with HIAA-related issues, such as timed auto-logouts, protected passwords, strong 128-bit secure SSL encryption, patient registration and login options, just to name a few. Patient contact and appointment information is kept private and shared only with account administrator and authorized personnel.
