Safety, Security & HIPAA Compliance
We believe that it should be easy to help children learn & thrive.
We know that you and your clients are concerned about the safety and security of your confidential data. We take many steps to make sure that your data is safe and the way that we build and run our software is compliant with Federal and State regulations.
Building software that is easy to use and yet safe & secure is a challenge. There are numerous trade-offs that have to be considered at every step. You’ve seen these changes over the past few years and we will continue to find unique and innovative ways that help you serve your clients easier while knowing that the data you collect is safe and secure.
In most cases, you, as DataKeeper’s customer, are considered a Covered Entity under the HIPAA/HITECH Act. If you need a Business Associate Agreement from DataKeeper to maintain your HIPAA/HITECH compliance, please contact us and we will provide you with that agreement.
DataKeeper conducts quarterly internal HIPAA/HITECH compliance audits and training.
