Yes, TaperMD is a HIPAA-compliant EHR platform that provides secure, cloud-based access to patient records. Frequent backups along with dual authentication and encryption factors protect against data loss or security breaches. The integrity of these features is maintained throughout its integration with PointClickCare. Patient records are imported just during a user session and only PointClickCare numeric identifiers are stored in TaperMD along with the Consultant Pharmacists notes.

Additionally, upon import of each PointClickCare resident into TaperMD, the user performing the import must attest to the following:
