Specialized training equips Purple’s healthcare team to deliver secure and compliant location-based solutions to US healthcare providers

Purple, the intelligent spaces company, today announced that its dedicated US healthcare team has successfully completed a comprehensive HIPAA compliance training program. This accomplishment reinforces Purple’s commitment to delivering industry-leading solutions that prioritize data privacy and security for healthcare providers and their patients.

Recognizing the critical importance of safeguarding sensitive health information, Purple proactively invested in this rigorous training program. Covering key aspects of the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA), including the Privacy Rule, Security Rule, and Omnibus Final Rule, the course equipped Purple’s healthcare team with the knowledge and tools necessary to uphold the highest standards of data protection and regulatory compliance.

The training provided in-depth knowledge on key areas such as:

  • Business Associate Agreements: Understanding the complexities of Business Associate Agreements (BAAs) and how to establish compliant agreements with healthcare providers.
  • Risk Analysis and Management: Conducting thorough risk assessments to identify potential vulnerabilities and implement appropriate safeguards to mitigate data breaches.
  • Privacy and Security Best Practices: Implementing policies and procedures that align with HIPAA’s stringent requirements for the use, disclosure, and safeguarding of Protected Health Information (PHI).

“At Purple, we understand that trust is paramount in healthcare, and that starts with protecting sensitive patient information,” said Shaun Bossons, Chief Revenue Officer at Purple.  “This HIPAA compliance certification reflects our deep commitment to providing US healthcare providers with solutions they can rely on, both for their technological innovation and their adherence to the highest standards of data privacy and security.”

By prioritizing HIPAA compliance, Purple ensures that its solutions can be seamlessly integrated into the US healthcare ecosystem, enabling providers to:

  • Reduce patient stress and enhance patient experience: Navigating a complex healthcare facility can be stressful and anxiety-inducing for patients. Digital wayfinding provides clear and easy-to-follow directions, minimizing confusion and ensuring patients can get to their appointments and departments with ease, improving their overall experience.
  • Increase staff efficiency and productivity: Staff members often find themselves spending valuable time providing directions instead of focusing on their primary responsibilities. Digital wayfinding empowers patients to navigate independently, freeing up staff time and allowing them to focus on patient care and other critical tasks.
  • Optimize patient flow and facility usage: By analyzing data on how patients utilize wayfinding tools, hospitals can identify high-traffic areas and common routes. These insights enable facilities to optimize layouts, streamline signage, and minimize bottlenecks, creating smoother patient flow and more efficient use of space.

This commitment to HIPAA compliance underscores Purple’s dedication to providing the US healthcare market with innovative solutions that meet the highest standards of data privacy and security.
