HIPAA Compliance

Professional Online Testing Solutions, Inc. encourages test users to delete client names when their evaluations are done. This proprietary "name deletion" procedure ensures client confidentiality and compliance with HIPAA (Federal Regulation 45 C.F.R. 164.501).

When an evaluation is done, users can delete the client's name. Once the name has been deleted, it CANNOT be restored. More specifically, the "delete client's name" option is provided on the "Supervisor Options" section of the test's webpage. To delete the client's name you log in and navigate to the test that client has taken. On that test's main menu click on that client's name and then click the "Supervisor Options" button. On the Supervisor Options page click on the "Delete Client Name" button and then click the "Continue" button.

Deleting a clients name will permanently encrypt that clients' name and remove the test record from the client list. This will prevent you from entering a posttest or printing a comparison report for the deleted name. For this reason, it is important that the name not be deleted until after the posttest and comparison reports have been generated and printed.
