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 Products also change quickly, and the review may become out of date.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.

OhMD

HIPAA compliance with this product appears possible?: Yes.
Recommend for your HIPAA risk management needs?: Yes. If you're a solo/solo+ provider (meaning there is only one clinician/HIPAA covered entity within your organization) -- then the "base" plan should be sufficient for your HIPAA security needs. If you're a group practice, then you should obtain the "plus" or "reach" option in order to have the chat auditing feature. If you wish to have both conventional SMS and secure messaging, you need OhMD's "reach" tier.

Livescribe Smart Pen by Anoto

HIPAA compliance with this product appears possible?: Yes.
Recommend for your HIPAA risk management needs?: Probably. The only reason we give this product a 'maybe' is because we were unable to physically test the device. This review is based on information we received from customer service representatives. They were able to give us a pretty clear "yes" about data being stored locally which is why we feel comfortable in giving this product a 'maybe.' Please test out these claims before using this product to record PHI.
