What Is HIPAA?
HIPAA is the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act. Title II of HIPAA defines policies, procedures, and guidelines for maintaining the privacy and security of individually identifiable health information as well as outlining numerous offenses relating to health care and sets civil and criminal penalties for violations.

If I Use TSheets, Am I HIPAA-Compliant?
To be HIPAA-compliant, TSheets users must not include any protected health information (PHI) as defined by HIPAA.
Please make sure that users do not include any PHI anywhere within TSheets, such as:
- Job or customer information
- Custom fields
TSheets is focused on your company's success, but HIPAA compliance is your responsibility. To ensure that your business is HIPAA-compliant, we recommend that you consult a HIPAA expert.
