Data Security and Entry

ADCES has processes and procedures in place to keep the AADE 7 System® software and servers HIPAA compliant and secure, and ADCES has redundant servers in offsite locations to minimize downtime. ADCES does not have access to personally identifiable information (only aggregate, de-identified data) and has Business Associate Agreements in place with its service providers that require full HIPAA compliance.

Also, ADCES has revised its standard user Business Associate Agreement based on the changes made to HIPAA by the HITECH Act (otherwise known as the Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health Act) and has instituted a new process to ensure that an appropriate Business Associate Agreement will be in place between ADCES and each user of the AADE 7 System®.
