QuickDrop™ Provides Data Security for Mobile Device Users

February 6, 2013

Protecting patient medical information just got easier for tablet and smartphone users. QuickDrop™ is a new app for mobile devices that was designed with HIPAA security rules in mind. It allows you to securely send and receive files of any size and type (document, photo, video, etc.). You access your information through a log-in screen and 256 bit encryption much like using a portal. Released in December of 2012 for iPhone and iPad users, the developers plan to add Mac and Android versions in early 2013.

Did you know that your workforce is your #1 leak to non-compliance? You can help decrease your medical practice’s exposure by implementing practices and tools that minimize that risk with your workforce and other providers. QuickDrop™ is an excellent tool to explore to help you ensure the security of patient protected health information for the mobile device users associated with your practice. To learn more about QuickDrop™ visit http://www.hitconsultant.net/2012/12/14/new-mobile-health-app-allows-hipaa-secure-file-sharing-of-patient-data/.

Interested in getting the app? You can easily add or download it to your mobile device by visiting this link: http://www.quickdropit.com/download.php. I’d love to hear your experience with QuickDrop™ and/or other apps you’ve found to improve the security of patient protected health information in your practice.

The new program, which will begin in October of 2014 and run into 2015, is very different from the 2012 Phase 1 program.  These audits will be conducted primarily by OCR internal staff, not an outside agency, and will be, for now, desk audits (offsite review) of requested documentation.  This round of audits will include both covered […]

From My Clients

“Rebecca working with you has been such a pleasure. As you know Practice Managers are far beyond busy and getting the security policies done is so important therefore getting us out of the office to get them done in two days is the only way to do it. Not only did you make it easy for us, you got us out of our offices, provided a lovely environment to work in and we walked away accomplishing an extremely daunting task. Practice Manager Solutions is top notch. Thank you and please keep me informed if you decide to do another workshop.”
