Wix in healthcare

In a healthcare setting, Wix can be used to design and maintain websites. A Wix site could host online appointment scheduling, provide telehealth instructions, and present vital health information. A Wix-built site can provide location details, hours of operation, and list services offered, improving the patient's access to necessary information.

Wix and HIPAA compliance

Wix does not inherently offer HIPAA compliance and does not sign a Business Associate Agreement (BAA). While Wix does offer SSL secure browsing and complies with various international security standards, it should not be used to transmit or store Protected Health Information (PHI) unless additional measures are taken to ensure the security and privacy of that information, in compliance with HIPAA rules. Further information is available in their HIPAA Policy.
