HIPAA applies to “covered entities” (that is, health plans, health care clearinghouses, and health care providers who electronically transmit any health information). Backpack Health is not one of these entities. We’re a place for you to store your health information in a way that makes the most sense to you. And, we don’t share your personal health information, only you can do that. For more about your privacy and Backpack Health, please make sure you’ve read and understood our full list of policies.
Even though we aren’t technically HIPAA compliant, we still meet all of the security and privacy standards that are required for HIPAA entities. We work hard to make sure your health information is secure.
