OFFICIAL US LAUNCH OF THERABYTE IN 2023
When we first launched Therabyte in 2019 in Canada, we were so excited to serve the Canadian Market and provide an EMR and practice management experience that was truly unique to anything else that could be found on the market for OTs and SLPs working in private practice. As our reach grew and more people learned about the unique features and workflow of Therabyte, so did the needs of the customers we were serving. By popular demand, we did a soft launch in the USA with HIPAA compliant servers mid 2022.
SERVING CASH BASED PRACTICES
We held off on an official launch in the states while we continued to learn about the needs of the Occupational Therapists and Speech Language Pathologists in the USA. We have been slowly onboarding and learning from a select group of users to understand their invoicing workflow and Superbill requirements when running a cash based practice.
We recommend Therabyte for OTs and SLPs working in cash based practices, with the option to offer a Superbill to your clients as needed.
WHAT ABOUT A CLEARING HOUSE OR INSURANCE AUTOMATIONS?
While we have ambitions of adding in the ability to connect to a clearing house for those dealing with insurance or in network, at present we recommend Therabyte for those running cash based practices.
Let’s explore the significance of Therabyte and HIPAA compliance, the peace of mind it offers, and how this development benefits our users in the United States.
WHAT DOES BEING HIPAA COMPLIANT MEAN?
HIPAA, the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act, was enacted in the United States to safeguard sensitive healthcare information. Being HIPAA compliant means that an organization has implemented the necessary safeguards and measures to protect patients’ personal health information (PHI). This includes electronic health records, medical billing information, and any other individually identifiable health information.
HIPAA compliance entails implementing strict administrative, physical, and technical safeguards, including secure data storage, controlled access, encryption, regular audits, and employee training. By adhering to these guidelines, it ensures that healthcare providers can confidently store and transmit personal health information (PHI) while maintaining patient privacy and data integrity. This process includes signing a BAA with each practitioner that signs up for a paid Therabyte subscription.
HOW DOES HIPAA COMPLIANCE GIVE YOU PEACE OF MIND?
Therabyte being HIPAA compliant grants peace of mind to OT and SLP providers and clients. Knowing that your data is protected in accordance with HIPAA regulations alleviates concerns about potential breaches and the subsequent legal and reputational consequences. This peace of mind allows focus on providing quality care to patients, confident that sensitive information is secure.
At Therabyte, we continue to understand the unique challenges faced by healthcare providers and organizations in the United States. We are proud to announce that our servers are fully HIPAA compliant, tailored to meet the rigorous standards set by this landmark legislation.
