Does Thryv include EHR or EMR?
Thryv is not an EHR (Electronic Health Records) or EMR (Electronic Medical Records) software that healthcare professionals can use to store and access medical records electronically. This also relates to medical billing and coding, which is not part of Thryv or the intention of Thryv software. Our HIPAA compliance is to assure you that you don’t need to worry about the confidentiality and security of any patient PHI that may be transferred, communicated, or stored in the course of relationship management activities undertaken with Thryv.
We are so excited to offer this feature to our industries that require HIPAA compliance. Now you can simplify your business, move to one simple software solution, and secure all your patient/clients' information in one place, truly making your business, smarter.
*Note Thryv's HIPAA Compliance does not extend to another software. If an account is using different software in partnership with Thryv and they require HIPAA compliance, then they will need to make sure that 3rd party software offers a HIPAA compliant option.
