No, FreshBooks has declared that it does not meet HIPAA compliance standards. Also, its website has no information about obtaining a signed business associate agreement (BAA).
FreshBooks provides security and reliability safeguards that align with certain HIPAA requirements, such as 256-bit SSL encryption and firewalls to protect stored data.
While FreshBooks’s digital and physical security features seem to comply with HIPAA standards, there is no mention of HIPAA compliance on the company’s website. The company also doesn’t offer information about obtaining a signed business associate agreement (BAA), which is a requirement for covered entities under HIPAA.
Since FreshBooks doesn’t specify what it’s security protocols are for protected health information (PHI) and doesn’t offer to sign a BAA, covered entities should choose different invoicing software.
