Telemed MD is focused on building easy and accessible technology solutions that help protect and secure your personal healthcare information. Working alongside reputable and reliable healthcare technology focused companies, PHIPPA compliant in Canada allows us to meet Ontario’s industry standards. We are always working on better ways to manage our privacy and security for all physicians and medical staff that are involved with accessing your personal data. Our data hosting providers ensure that both PI and PHI standards are maintained in accordance with regulations set out for healthcare technology focused providers. Our technical and security incident response team (SIRT) is constantly improving our backend system based on any issues that are provided through patient feedback or our internal team.
We currently use Amazon Web Services (AWS) reliable and secure network to host our cloud based virtual platform. Currently AWS has the most security standards and compliance certifications than any other offering (PCI-DSS, HIPAA/HITECH, FedRAMP, GDPR, FIPS 140-2, and NIST 800-171, ISO 27001, and SOC framework)
TelemedMD uses PHIPPA and Ontario Health compliant electronic medical record (EMR) solutions to store patient data at rest (AES 128 bit encryption). Our respective EMR provider follows all PI and PHI obligations set out by Ontario standards of data security and storage.
We do this through providing online solutions and on-site virtual care facilities.
Through ongoing testing and scanning we find ways to further safeguard our platform. Our technical team of developers oversees ongoing fixes and updates to our system so that we always work on improving our system. Vulnerability scanning and cyber security testing is performed on a year to year basis through industry standard healthcare technology vendors.
Our goal is to raise awareness and help patients find alternative solutions to health care needs.
We want to ensure that patient data and personal information is your right and a large part of our focus here at Telemed MD. Our policy agreements help explain how we manage, collect and protect all of your personal data. To review and learn more you can click here
