And in response to the question regarding HIPAA Compliance :
Pega’s development platform and all strategic applications – including the Pega COVID-19 Employee Tracker for Safety and Business Continuity application accelerator – have standards-enabled data models to maintain compliance with standards and regulations within clients’ respective industries.
Pega also provides the necessary controls and parameters to configure applications to meet any regulatory requirements to help protect employees’ data. This includes federal and state laws such as HIPAA (Healthcare Information Privacy Act) and HITRUST, which help protect user data – specifically protected health information (PHI) from being used in ways it shouldn’t.
Each organization should deploy Pega COVID-19 Employee Tracker for Safety and Business Continuity in accordance to their own business and information management policies. The app also has the ability to enable employees to opt out of questions.
