HipaaCat facilitates HIPAA compliant communication

HipaaCat is a new mobile app for Android and iPhone that enables secure, encrypted HIPAA compliant communication for text messages and images through mobile devices. The service requires strong passwords, entered daily, and deletes any information sent through the application after two weeks.

There are three different versions of the app, for Chiefs, Residents, and Nurses, each with their own functionality which allow users to work together as a secure group, with permissions given from the team leader.

Online health information supports traditional care

A new study suggests that patients increasingly look to the internet for both support and for health information, but do so in addition to traditional resources. The study found that patients are using the internet to connect with others who share their situations and to find information on health topics which they then share with their doctors. These patients still rely on traditional support structures, such as family, and their trust in their doctor is unaffected. Patients using online research bring the information to their doctors to ask questions and learn more, demonstrating a more active role in their own care.
