HIPAApropriateness Reviews

HIPAApropriateness reviews are not like typical reviews. Instead of looking at features and rating their quality, we look at products' appropriateness for the risk managment needs (i.e. HIPAA, ethics, etc.) of mental health clinicians.
Important: HIPAApropriateness reviews, including their summaries, are for informational purposes only. They are neither consultation nor legal advice. Be aware that while we do our best to be thorough and complete, information may be missing or possibly even inaccurate. Products also change quickly, and the review may become out of date. By continuing to read, you agree to use the information in HIPAApropriateness reviews and their summaries at your own risk.
