HIPAA Compliance and Your Plastic Surgery Website

Cutting Edge client websites and our patient feedback platform are protected with SSL encryption to ensure privacy and safekeeping of patient communications.

Is your plastic surgery website secure?Is your website secure? Is there a padlock ? displayed near your URL at the top left of your browser? If not then you have a priority one issue that could become a big problem for your medical practice if your site allows patients to send you messages or fill out contact forms requesting consultations. Your website is NOT secure.

Your plastic surgery website cannot possibly get the individual attention it requires if it’s lost among dozens or hundreds of clients with a bigger medical website provider who ignores something so very important.

No excuse from your current website provider is acceptable for allowing your medical practice website to run without a padlock. How many years has this been going on?

Your patient communications may have already been hacked.
Your website provider wouldn’t even know it.

It’s important to note that HTTPS isn’t only about confidentiality – which is how most people think of encryption – but also about authenticity and integrity, which in many cases are even more important.

This means that, without HTTPS, eavesdroppers can not only access the requests for consults and data flowing over your website, seeing everything your patients do on your site, but can also intercept it and manipulate it.

You’d be surprised by the number of plastic surgery websites we’ve found that aren’t secure and are run by complacent medical website providers who don’t seem to care and whose clients have grown too numerous to backtrack and fix this dangerous problem. Often the plastic surgery practice has been with a company like this for years and feels stuck forking out big bucks every month just to keep things rolling.

Well, you don’t have to feel like that anymore.

Now is a good time to take your website and digital marketing in a new direction. In a relationship with Cutting Edge we look out for you first starting with making sure all is secure followed by top shelf individualized service that bigger medical website providers who have 100 clients simply cannot provide!

Cutting Edge can takeover your website and address these issues quickly while growing your plastic surgery practice.

Don’t leave your patients vulnerable to eavesdroppers.
