TruForm Classic: Security Information

Follow

Instructions below ONLY apply to TruForm on MyPBHS.

TruForm is secure, HIPAA compliant system enabling patients and doctor to transmit their Private Health Information (PHI) prior to initial visit.   

Just like an online banking system, we use the following encryption to protect ALL patient data:

  • This form is hosted on a secure server
  • 256 bit encryption on the back-end & 128 bit encryption on the front-end
  • We follow all HIPAA laws regarding passing patient information online.

If you are visiting the website with a secure connection, you will be able to identify the website through the site’s certificate. A secure or encrypted website address will begin with HTTPS rather than HTTP, and you will often see some sort of icon in the browser such as a padlock indicating that the website is secure. Secure connections use certificates to identify the website and to encrypt your connection so that it will be more difficult for a hacker to view

The Security Rule specifies a series of administrative, physical, and technical safeguards for covered entities to use to assure the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of electronic protected health information.

Once the online form is opened within your browser, you can locate the following security information:

Secure connections use certificates to identify the website and to encrypt your connection.
