Marijuana Doctors has launched a new app that doctors can use as a paperless HIPAA Compliance Check-In System on a tablet or iPad. Practice Manager, the new electronic check-in system, will process forms and instantly store files into the EMR. The system will make processing patient paperwork easier, leaving physicians and practice managers just to review notes and schedule follow-ups. The check-in system also will have the functionality to set up reminders for patients about scheduling follow-up appointments through the Marijuana Doctors site, text, or email. The system will also give patients the opportunity to rate the practice and their experience, helping boost the practice’s credibility with great reviews and testimonials.

HIPAA is a federal law that protects the privacy of identifiable patient information, requires electronic and physical security standards related to the storage and use of PHI, and establishes standard transactions and code sets to simplify billing and other electronic transactions. HIPAA standards were updated in 2009 by the implementation of the HITECH Act and again in 2013 by the HIPAA Omnibus Rule. In accordance with HIPAA standards, MarijuanaDoctors.com is HITECH and BAA certified, and has put in place measures to protect the confidentiality of health information in any form, whether written, oral, or electronic.
