Luminai is HIPAA compliant
We are pleased to announce that Luminai has achieved HIPAA compliance. This is a significant milestone demonstrating our commitment to providing our customers with the highest level of security and compliance.
As a technology company, Luminai recognizes the importance of maintaining strong security controls and compliance measures. Our customers trust us with their sensitive data, and HIPAA compliance ensures that we meet rigorous security, availability, and confidentiality standards.
What is HIPAA compliance?
The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996, commonly known as HIPAA, is a series of regulatory standards that outline the lawful use and disclosure of protected health information (PHI).
Protected health information (PHI) is any demographic information that can be used to identify a patient or client of a HIPAA-beholden entity. Common examples of PHI include names, addresses, phone numbers, Social Security numbers, medical records, financial information, and full facial photos to name a few.
PHI that is transmitted, stored, or accessed electronically also falls under HIPAA regulatory standards and is known as electronic protected health information or ePHI. The HIPAA Security Rule regulates ePHI and was enacted to account for changes in medical technology.
Why does HIPAA compliance matter?
HIPAA compliance is important because it ensures healthcare providers, health plans, healthcare clearinghouses, and businesses of HIPAA-covered entities must implement multiple safeguards to protect sensitive personal and health information
HIPAA compliance sets a “federal floor” of privacy protections and rights for individuals to control healthcare data. This means that Covered Entities throughout the country must comply with the HIPAA Privacy Rule unless a state law offers more stringent privacy protections or greater rights for individuals.
How does Luminai put security first?
At Luminai, we take security very seriously. We have implemented a comprehensive security program that includes regular vulnerability scanning and penetration testing, data encryption, access controls, and employee training. We continually monitor and update our security practices to ensure we protect our customers' data to the highest standards.
