HIPAA Compliance

What is HIPAA Compliance?

The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) is a US federal law established in 1996. It mandates industry-wide standards for healthcare organizations, requiring them to implement and maintain technical, administrative, and physical safeguards to protect the security, integrity, and confidentiality of patient information.

Xodo Sign and HIPAA Compliance

Using the Xodo Sign electronic signature and document management platform significantly enhances the reliability, authenticity, and availability of signatures and signed documents. Xodo Sign solution ensures electronically signed documents are compliant with the U.S. Electronic Signature in Global and National Commerce Act of 2000 (ESIGN), the Uniform Electronic Transactions Act (UETA), and the European Union eIDAS (EU No.910/2014). Furthermore, e-signatures by Xodo Sign come with tamper evidence and a complete, traceable audit trail document, making documents signed via Xodo Sign legally binding.

While HIPAA does not mandate the way documents containing Protected Health Information (PHI) are signed, Xodo Sign supports a HIPAA-compliant workflow of healthcare organizations and service providers by providing the tools needed for compliance. However, it is important to note that HIPAA compliance is subject to the individual practices of healthcare organizations, and the use of Xodo Sign alone does not constitute compliance.
