Welcome group practice owners! We are Liath Dalton and Roy Huggins, your co-hosts of the Group Practice Tech podcast.
In this episode, we’re talking about payment processors like Zelle, Paypal, and Venmo.
We discuss the term “HIPAA compliant”; compliance as a process; using “compliant” products in a noncompliant way; our favorite example, Google Workspace; unencrypted email; special HIPAA exceptions, like the conduit exception; the exception for payment processing; making informed choices from a risk management perspective; apps selling user information; collecting payments through your practice management system and Stripe; Square for solo practice; and payment processing fees.
Stay tuned for future episodes!
