Protect user data with HIPAA-compliant surveys

Do you work in the healthcare sector, interact a lot with patients, or handle sensitive health information? Then, you should use HIPAA-compliant methods while gathering feedback or any other patient data.

What is HIPAA?
The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA), includes the Privacy Rule, Security Rule, Breach Notification Rule, and Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health Act, and it requires Covered Entities and Business Associates to take certain measures to protect health information that can identify an individual.

What does it mean to secure your surveys by using HIPAA?
It means that while you use Zoho Survey to collect health-related information, we help you safeguard the sensitive health and personal information you collect through your online surveys, by adhering to HIPAA guidelines.

How is it done?
We help you create secure surveys by using the following HIPAA-compliant methods:
  1. ePHI (electronic Protected Health Information) labeling (available only for Healthcare surveys)
  2. Custom field encryption (available only in Short Answer, Long Answer, Email, Date/Time, Number questions, and Text, Number, Email, and Date custom variables)
  3. Monitoring and exporting audit logs
