We at Apollo are closely monitoring the HIPAA guidelines in order to be able to help our physicians implement them effectively and efficiently. Apollo has taken the following measures to enforce administrative, technical, and physical security of the patient information.

From the increased privacy and security concerns brought about by the Healthcare Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) to understanding the needs and culture of each individual clinic and practice, we at Apollo have designed, developed and implemented our solution on technology that will make it secure, accessible, and flexible.

Some of the safety features are:

  • Firewalls
  • Network intrusion detection
  • Virus check
  • Service Level Agreements (SLAs)
  • Secure Socket Layers (SSL)
  • Data backups, multiple hosting sites and contingency planning
  • Audit trails and role based access/edit rights with configurable access management
  • Interface built for WAP, Palm Pilot and Windows CE, for accessibility using cell phones, PDAs and Handheld PCs
  • Interface for electronic claim forwarding and clearing built on XML and flat files
  • Unique and confidential user identification number and passwords to access any patient information
  • Auto-logoff of user accounts after a specified period of time to help prevent unauthorized access
  • Application and Database servers are accessible only by extremely secure connections by limited and authorized personal
  • All Apollo staff and business associates are required to sign and follow strict security contracts to ensure security of patient information
  • Apollo is hosted at an extremely secure facility which is HIPAA certified. The patient information is secured both physically and technically
