Is the database protected?

The database is encrypted at-rest using industry-standard algorithms.

How is the data protected over the internet?

Data is encrypted in-transit (SSL, TLS1.2). These are the same standards that banks, and other financial institutions use to keep your data safe.

Are you HIPAA / PHIPA compliant?

Yes and No. QIPAudit does not collect protected health information (PHI) so HIPAA / PHIPA is not strictly applicable. Even so, server and database measures for security and encryption are compatible with HIPAA / PHIPA standards. Note that independent at-rest-encryption is not available on mobile devices.

Are you PIPEDA compliant? Are you GDPR compliant?

We are PIPEDA compliant. We believe that we are GDPR compliant; however, QIPAudit is only available to Canadian members of IPAC Canada who work for healthcare providers. If you are located outside Canada and wish to try the tool, please contact us and tell us about your situation.
