BEST HIPAA-COMPLIANT ONLINE FORMS IF YOU NEED SIGNATURES

IntakeQ

Have your patients fill out and sign forms online.  They can access them from your website, or you can send them securely via email.  Doesn’t cost a ridiculous amount of money for HIPAA-compliance like some of the better known companies (like Docusign).  Will sign a HIPAA BAA.

BEST HIPAA-COMPLIANT ONLINE FORMS IF YOU DON’T NEED SIGNATURES

Google Forms

If you’re a HIPAA-compliant G Suite customer, you get a fantastic free form building that you can use for handling ePHI.  The only thing it doesn’t do is collect digital signatures.  Covered by a HIPAA BAA.

Private Internet Access Logo

BEST VPN

Private Internet Access (PIA)

If you find yourself using public wifi networks a lot, or if you’re worried about privacy, a good VPN is a must-have.  PIA is safe and very affordable compared to other VPN services.  Watch this video to see how it works.

LastPassLogo

BEST PASSWORD MANAGER

LastPass

Find yourself forgetting passwords, or using bad passwords that are easy to remember?  LastPass fixes all of that!  The paid version has some great features (you can share passwords, have a central admin view of all passwords, and more).  But the free version is pretty great too!

Sucuri Logo

BEST WEBSITE SECURITY

Sucuri

This is a great service that both protects your website from getting hacked, and also gets you help if it ever is hacked.  You don’t have to worry about your website serving up viruses to your patients and clients.

Google Meet Logo

BEST HIPAA-COMPLIANT VIDEO CONFERENCING

Google Meet

Google did something right when they made their excellent video conferencing tool available for free (as part of G Suite) and made it HIPAA-compliant.  Medical practices who subscribe to G Suite can use Meet and their internet connection to talk to patients.  Also works great on mobile phones!

Namecheap logo

BEST DOMAIN REGISTRAR

NameCheap

If a hacker steals your domain, they own your digital life.  Your email, your website, everything.  You want a domain registrar that’s as cheap as possible, but that also has security features like two-factor authentication and domain privacy guard.  NameCheap is cheap and good.

Paubox Logo

BEST SECURE EMAIL

Paubox

Let’s be honest – most secure email is a pain in the ass.  Paubox has figured out a clever trick to make it completely transparent.  No add-ons, no passwords to remember — it just works.  We like it so much that we’ve made it a part of our HIPAA-compliant G Suite offering.

BEST HIPAA RISK ASSESSMENT

HIPAA & Computer Security Review

OK, we’re a little biased on this one.  We created a process for doing a HIPAA and Computer Security review that’s FAST and easy.  The big difference is that we’re not trying to review every little thing — we just review the most important things that medical practices typically get wrong.
