Section of this legislation is geared toward providing security and information privacy protections around accessibility, use, and disclosure of protected health information (PHI). HIPAA is just another landmark for My Country Mobile in simplifying our information privacy and safety to satisfy the requirements of our HIPAA compliant clients. My Nation Mobile is dedicated to providing a stage trusted by clients and patients.
Under HIPAA, businesses that use a service provider to process PHI on their behalf have to set in place a business partner arrangement with this service provider. Accordingly, clients who are subject to HIPAA and mean to use My Nation Mobile products and solutions to develop communication workflows containing PHI must execute a Business Associate Addendum (BAA) to My Nation Mobile Terms of Service.
My Nation Mobile BAA was developed considering the particular services and products which My Nation Mobile provides and believes HIPAA compliance as a shared responsibility between the client and My Nation Mobile. To find out more about how to construct a HIPAA compliant workflow with My Nation Mobile offerings, please consult with Architecting for HIPAA on My Nation Mobile.
What do I want to do in order to create a HIPAA compliant workflow with My Nation Mobile?
First, make sure that the My Nation Mobile goods and services you are thinking about using your HIPAA workflows are insured under our present collection of HIPAA Eligible services and products.
Having a BAA signed, you should begin construction but we recommend adhering to the instructions we made on Architecting for HIPAA on My Nation Mobile that summarizes the customer-side shared duties and requirements for constructing and keeping a HIPAA compliant workflow using My Nation Mobile tools.
What goods do I use if I really have a BAA set up with My Nation Mobile?
Clients wishing to construct communication workflows that may contain PHI should just utilize HIPAA Eligible services and products. This list could be updated as further products and services become HIPAA Eligible. Clients may use the rest of the services and products which aren’t on this list, however, there has to be no possibility of PHI being traded in breach of HIPAA as a portion of those workflows.
Is your HIPAA eligible variation of My Nation Mobile products distinct from the non-HIPAA qualified edition?
No. My Nation Mobile HIPAA qualified products and providers have the essential safety controls to encourage HIPAA, however, their performance didn’t change. But, there might be customer requirements which have to be implemented when constructing a HIPAA compliant workflow. Please consult with Architecting for HIPAA on My Nation Mobile for Additional Information.
Most consumers would prefer to have a company to provide them with an insurance cover that is offered with a medical device, while the majority of consumers would not wish to use the non-HIPAA-qualified edition. Let’s take a look at the differences between the two in more detail.
The HIPAA and the My Nation Mobile and HIPAA program are similar in several respects. For instance, both programs offer non-disclosure agreements (NDAs) with clients. However, the difference between the two is that the My Nation Mobile and HIPAA program are offered by a third party than would act as a third party on behalf of the client.
In short, it is the third party that would act as the business partner of the consumer – the third party’s business model. In other words, the medical device would provide the CMM with the complete service including a prescription for the device.
A consumer has the option of going with the third party or the medical device manufacturer. However, if the consumer is interested in going with the manufacturer, they are also subject to the NDA terms with the manufacturer. This is not such a big deal for the consumer as the medical device is usually covered by a warranty that would protect the consumer.
There is a lot of paperwork involved with the medical device and the NDA because the HIPAA and the My Nation Mobile and HIPAA program are part of the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). Therefore, when the consumer chooses to go with a third-party provider, they would need to handle some additional paperwork.
The non-disclosure agreement would normally go with the medical device, while the NDA would go with the third party, regardless of whether the device would be sent directly to the doctor’s office or not. The NDA may even need to be amended if the patient chose to go through the manufacturer’s office. The NDA would also need to be sent to the third party and in addition, the NDA may need to be sent to the manufacturer as well.
The My Nation Mobile and HIPAA program can help the consumer to have an easier time of dealing with a medical device manufacturer. By doing this, the consumer would be able to avoid the risk of getting a medical device that has been tampered with by a third party.
The HIPAA and the My Nation Mobile and HIPAA program allow the consumer to receive a mobile phone without having to jump through hoops – which is much easier for many consumers. While there is a difference between the medical device and the non-HIPAA-qualified edition, this difference will allow the consumer to avoid the risk of having their mobile phone tampered with or hacked by the manufacturer.
