Everything we do at TidyHealth is based upon respect for our users to keep themselves and loved ones safe and secure.
Digital health records are increasingly vulnerable to cyber attack. In 2018 alone, according to Moody's, there were 148 hacks and 30 advisories from our Department of Homeland Security regarding personal health information. As government races to wire up patients, big medicine is getting pressured to better defend against cyber incursions and disruptions.
One reason that electronic portals are plagued by security concerns is that many are data engines pretending to be personal health records. Their business model is based on harvesting data from patients and then getting paid by advertisers or providers to use the data.
By contrast, TidyHealth was engineered with security by design. There is no profile targeting. We do not use bits of software to gather your data or track your activities. We do not connect to remote servers or data banks - all information in this application is yours alone - to use and share as you decide.
It may seem a revolutionary idea for patients - not doctors - to maintain their own records. The data belongs to you - which means it is personal and should exist in exactly the form you wish. With TidyHealth, you chose exactly what to share and by whom. Your information is never pulled from or pushed to another application.
TidyHealth is continuously protected by Apple security and backed up in iCloud. Access to our application is guarded by password, touch ID, or facial recognition, and may be enhanced by enabling a 4-digit passcode at Settings > iCloud > Keychain > Advanced > Security Code.
And when you share information, TidyHealth uses industry leading technologies like end-to-end encryption - which means that your trusted devices own a "private key" to which only known devices can gain access. Nobody else - including Tidy Health or Apple - can see your data. If someone tries to hack your account, they are asked to enter a verification code sent to your trusted device. This is called "Two Factor Authentication" and can be turned on at Settings > Security > Apple ID >Two Factor Authenication.
