The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (“HIPAA”) is a United States law that applies to companies and other entities involved in the healthcare industry that may have access to patient information (called “Protected Health Information”, or “PHI”).
Quickbase abides by the HIPAA Security and Privacy rules in our operation of the Quickbase platform. Quick Base performs an annual HIPAA Attestation as part of our annual SOC examinations conducted by a 3rd party audit firm which validates Quickbase controls meet or exceed the requirements.
Quickbase enables its customers to build HIPAA-compliant applications. Quickbase's Customers are responsible for determining if they are a Covered Entity or Business Associate under HIPAA (and whether a business associate agreement with Quickbase is required) and for ensuring that it uses Quickbase in compliance with HIPAA. Customers who store or process Protected Health Information must sign a business associate agreement with Quickbase. Quickbase will sign BAAs with our customers on annual or multi-year contracts.
