At Miracle, our mission extends beyond streamlining clinical operations and helping save time in clinical trials. It’s about ensuring the utmost security and privacy of the data entrusted to us by our partners, and we are committed to exceeding industry standards when it comes to security.

Since establishing HIPAA compliance last year, we have been proudly partnered with a number of biotech and pharmaceutical companies in streamlining their clinical trial management. In addition to HIPAA, Miracle also has SOC 2 Type II and GDPR compliance, and we will discuss SOC 2 Type II and GDPR compliance in future blog posts.

HIPAA Compliance: Why It Matters

The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) is a foundational regulation in the United States designed to protect sensitive patient data. Achieving HIPAA compliance is not just about adhering to a set of regulations; it's about affirming our commitment to the highest levels of data privacy and security.

HIPAA establishes stringent requirements for the handling of Electronic Protected Health Information (ePHI), covering a broad spectrum from medical histories to payment records for healthcare services. For companies like Miracle operating at the intersection of technology and healthcare, HIPAA compliance ensures that:

  • Robust safeguards are in place to protect patient data.
  • Procedures adhere to the HIPAA Privacy Rule in order to safeguard the confidentiality and integrity of ePHI.
  • Policies are established in accordance with the Breach Notification Rule, ensuring transparency and accountability in the event of a data breach.

Our Journey to Compliance

Achieving HIPAA compliance was a comprehensive process that involved the entire Miracle team. From enhancing our technical safeguards to refining administrative policies, every step was taken with the goal of not just meeting, but exceeding the regulatory requirements. This achievement is a testament to our team’s dedication and a reflection of our commitment to security excellence.

While Miracle typically works with blinded data from our customers, we uphold HIPAA compliance to ensure the highest data privacy and security standards for our partners.

Our Commitment to Data Privacy and Security

Miracle’s HIPAA compliance is rigorously monitored by Vanta, an industry leader in automated HIPAA compliance monitoring.
