Compliancy Group has certified that Miiskin has achieved Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) compliance after completing all required steps to follow the HIPAA rules.
Miiskin is a provider of an application and teledermatology platform that over 500,000 people all over the world currently use to keep track of their skin changes. The smartphone-based application enables users to carefully keep track of the health of their skin so that during check-up consultations their doctors can have the needed health data.
The platform utilizes the state-of-the-art computer-vision, machine learning, and augmented reality to help its users take note of new moles and carry out self-examinations to know if there are changes to existing moles and speed up the identification of skin cancer.
Because the app is utilized for collecting, storing, and transmitting protected health information (PHI), Miiskin is classified as a business associate (BA) and needs to be compliant with specific terms of the HIPAA Rules.
To make sure that Miiskin’s platform along with its policies and procedures were totally in compliance with the HIPAA regulations, the app provider came to Compliancy Group and used its tested HIPAA compliance approach to track its progress to achieve HIPAA compliance. In particular, Miiskin used The Guard, Compliancy Group’s exclusive software in order to successfully prove the company’s compliance with all the necessary HIPAA Rules.
Compliancy Group’s compliance process was quite simple and easy to follow. Thanks to the support and guidance provided by Compliancy Group, it helped the SaaS provider and European company to become HIPAA compliant even without prior HIPAA knowledge. Jon Friis, Miiskin’s founder, found the entire process and resources very likeable.
After MIiskin finished going through Compliancy Group’s 6-step risk analysis and remediation procedure, Compliancy Group rewarded the company’s good faith effort to be HIPAA-compliant with the HIPAA Seal of Compliance.
The HIPAA Seal of Compliance is proof that present and future clients and app users could hold on to that the Miiskin is determined to protect the privacy and security of PHI and to implement an efficient HIPAA compliance program.
