Is iCloud HIPAA compliant?
Posted By HIPAA Journal on Aug 1, 2019
With electronic information being stored by nearly everyone, it's important to know what electronic storage service is HIPAA compliant. It came to my attention by a client this week that icloud by Apple is NOT HIPAA compliant. This brief article explains why icloud for backing up storage is NOT HIPAA compliant. Apple does not sign business associate agreements (BAA) so icloud can not be used to back up any private health information. Read more about this here: Read here

Question from a podiatrist:
A: The DMEPOS supplier should install one of the clips on the patient's shoes as part of the billing code L1951. Instructions for use and assuring the patient understands how to use the functional XTERN are documented in the proof of delivery signed by the patient. See page 8 of the compliance packet here.
Regarding the extra 4 clips, I recommend charging your patient to install the extra clips in your clinic as a separate service for the extra shoes. Alternatively, refer the patient to a shoe repair store locally where the clips can be installed with an industrial sewing machine. In most cases, an example of the clip installed is enough demonstration of how the shoe repair technician should install the excess clips. Another great option is to refer the patient to www.footdropsolved.com where the patient can purchase installation service and send shoes directly to Foot Drop Solved at https://www.footdropsolved.com/collections/all/products/fitting-service
