HIPAA & Texting

Most pregnancy centers have moved into the realm of digital conversation with their potential clients over the past few years. Texting is almost always the mode of communication Gen Z prefers. Especially in a complex situation like an unexpected pregnancy. Texting with your clients, especially outside of office hours, can make them feel valued, respected and can even be the first step to earning their trust.

If you are a center who is communicating in this way with clients, you may be concerned about maintaining HIPAA compliance. And rightly so. No matter what platform you are using, you want to ensure that the following are in place to better protect your center, your staff and your Medical Director. PRC and PHO clients/patients have a reasonable expectation that all matters shared will remain private.

Here are a few things any HIPAA compliant mobile communication apps should have:

  • Desktop Version

  • Restricted Access

  • Multi-level Encryption

  • Audit Controls

  • Password Protection

  • Two- Factor Authentication

It’s also pertinent to say that no matter how amazing the HIPAA compliant platform may be, when it comes to texting, your software will always be limited. You need to be sure your conversations and communications are also HIPAA compliant. Knowing what to say and what not to say is of the utmost importance.
