AlayaCare Posted on Jul 12, 2022

The all-new feature promotes increased collaboration, transparency, and connectivity amongst care staff with end-to-end encryption for data protection and compliance with health information privacy laws.

RICHMOND HILL, N.Y. - July 12, 2022 - AlayaCare, leading global home care software, today announced the release of Secure Messaging. Available on both AlayaCare web and mobile applications, the new feature allows back-office staff and care teams to communicate and exchange important information securely and in real-time.

"Those in the home care industry know the complexity of everyday operations and the challenges that come with coordinating and communicating with multiple stakeholders on a minute-by-minute basis," said Mike Ambrosone, Senior Product Manager at AlayaCare. "Our goal in developing Secure Messaging is to streamline all communication for care teams, whether that's notifying caregivers of last-minute schedule changes or keeping the care team up to date with a client's care progress."

Ensuring compliance with health information privacy acts is critical when using messaging applications by home care employees. Failure to comply with such regulations can carry severe penalties in the form of fines. The AlayaCare Secure Messaging feature allows for PHI data residency capability, control of client information storage, and is secured through TLS and AES256 encryption; making the feature compliant under HIPAA as well as Canadian PIPEDA and the Australian Privacy Act of 1988.

“It’s important for our customers to feel confident knowing that vital client information is protected,” said Patrick Charbonneau, Senior Vice President of Product at AlayaCare. “If we can help our customers mitigate compliance risks while improving the delivery of care, we’re another step closer in our mission to enabling better outcomes.”
