Kipu Enhancing the Behavioral Health Space with a HITRUST-Certified EMR

The healthcare industry has witnessed a substantial shift toward the use of technology, such as medical records (EMRs). It is essential to prioritize patient privacy, data security, and compliance with industry standards. This is where partnering with a HITRUST-certified EMR can make a huge difference!

We are excited to announce that Kipu joins HITRUST Certified EMR Companies like, Epic Systems Corporation, Cerner Corporation, and Allscripts Healthcare Solutions. Let’s dive into the importance of HITRUST certification in behavioral health!

What is HITRUST Certification?

HITRUST (Health Information Trust Alliance) is a widely recognized and comprehensive security framework designed specifically for the healthcare industry. Achieving HITRUST certification requires organizations to meet rigorous standards in areas such as risk management, privacy, security, and compliance. The certification demonstrates a commitment to protecting sensitive patient data and establishing a robust security infrastructure. 

Not only is earning the most difficult certification rare, but the fact that zero corrective action plans came back from HITRUST for Kipu’s audit is rarer. No other behavioral health EMR is HITRUST-certified, and we are committed to you and your patients!

Why Partner with a HITRUST Certified EMR?

Our patient’s information requires the highest level of security. By partnering with a HITRUST-certified EMR, like Kipu, you can rest assured knowing that your data is being safeguarded using robust industry best practices. The certification ensures that the EMR has implemented strict security measures, such as encryption, access controls, and intrusion detection systems, to protect your patient’s data from unauthorized access or breaches. 

Compliance with Regulatory Standards

Compliance with industry regulations, such as the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA)and the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), is crucial in behavioral health. HITRUST certification provides an added layer of confidence. Partnering with a HITRUST-certified EMR ensures that your organization remains compliant with the evolving regulatory industry, minimizing the risk of penalties and legal consequences.

Trust and Confidence

Collaborating with a HITRUST-certified EMR instills trust. The certification serves as a testament to the behavioral health software company’s dedication to maintaining the highest standards of data protection and privacy. When patients know that their behavioral health provider is using a HITRUST-certified EMR, they can feel confident in the security of their personal information, leading to increased trust and improved patient-provider relationships.

The Importance in the Behavioral Health Industry

Behavioral health involves sensitive and personal information that requires ultimate protection. HITRUST certification is especially crucial in this domain as it ensures that the EMR has taken all necessary measures to safeguard patient data. By partnering with a HITRUST-certified EMR, you can prioritize patient privacy and security while focusing on providing the best care to your patients.

Partnering with a HITRUST-certified EMR enables you to protect sensitive patient data, comply with regulatory standards, and build trust with your patients. Kipu is committed to supporting behavioral health providers in delivering secure and high-quality care. By prioritizing HITRUST certification when choosing an EMR partner, you can foster a secure and reliable healthcare ecosystem that puts patient privacy and data security at the forefront!
