Is NueMD HIPAA Compliant? - Paubox

Scheduling appointments online makes it easy for patients to choose a time to visit you. However, software like this can pose a potential data security issue. Is your online scheduling tool HIPAA compliant?

Let’s investigate NueMD and if it complies with HIPAA security rules.

What is NueMD?

NueMD provides software that has many features including practice management and billing services. It’s specifically designed for healthcare practices and can be used to schedule appointments, patient registration, and more.

Is NueMD HIPAA compliant?

Covered entities may consider choosing NueMD to schedule appointments, run their healthcare practice, and accomplish billing tasks.

Businesses that have the potential to collect electronic protected health information (ePHI) are considered business associates. Software like NueMD can easily collect ePHI from patients, especially when scheduling appointments since names and phone numbers can be considered sensitive data. 

Business associates must sign a contract agreeing to protect ePHI and follow HIPAA security guidelines. This contract is known as the business associate agreement (BAA). If a business associate is unwilling to sign a BAA, it cannot be a HIPAA compliant vendor.

NueMD is willing to sign a BAA when you start using its software. While NeuMD doesn’t elaborate on the details of its security system, the willingness to sign a BAA suggests that security meets HIPAA standards.

NueMD may be HIPAA compliant.
