meet the security and privacy standards set by HIPAA, we utilize
Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology to secure this transmission.
SSL is the industry standard security protocol. SSL creates a
shared digital key, which only lets the sender and the receiver of
the transmission scramble or unscramble information. To everyone
else, the SSL transmission is indecipherable. This is the same
level of security used by financial institutions and popular
online retail outlets to secure sensitive data. Although no
security process is 100% secure, we will continue to use the
latest technologies available to ensure that our patient's private
health information is protected to the fullest extent possible.
