"With the increase in demand for HIPAA compliant apps and software, especially in relation to COVID-19 apps, Compliancy Group saw the need to provide guidance for developers. We believe that taking the concern of compliance out of the equation will greatly improve access to healthcare apps."

Compliancy Group has developed HIPAA guidance for software developers for developers creating COVID-19 apps. As COVID-19 apps access protected health information (PHI) to function, they are considered business associates under the HIPAA regulation.

Before it is permitted for business associates to create, maintain, store, receive, or transmit PHI, they must first achieve HIPAA compliance. This is why Compliancy Group has developed HIPAA guidance specifically for COVID-19 software developers.

HIPAA compliance for COVID-19 apps requires app developers to ensure the confidentiality, availability, and integrity of PHI is maintained through HIPAA safeguards. Compliancy Group provides all of the resources necessary to enable COVID-19 apps to Achieve, Illustrate, and MaintainTM their HIPAA compliance through our proprietary HIPAA software, the Guard.

Compliancy Group provides clients with guided support to clear up the complexities of HIPAA law. Working with Compliancy Group allows COVID-19 software developers to be confident in their HIPAA compliance program, giving them peace of mind that the leader in HIPAA compliance has them covered.
