How do you log and monitor access to user chats and encrypted ePHI?

  • All ePHI data is encrypted in transit, end to end, and at rest using AES 256 CBC encryption. 
  • Access to chats result in logs to the Nurse-1-1 PHI Access logs. Prior to access, the viewer will need to enter their login information (username and password) and provide a reason for accessing the given chat.
  • PHI access logs are accessible to Customers in their Nurse-1-1 dashboard.  Accessing the PHI access logs also results in logs to the Nurse-1-1 PHI Access logs. 
  • At this time, PHI access logs of usernames are not encrypted, however, the logs do not include any ePHI.
  • Access to recordings of interactions with Users is limited only to Customer’s agents, Nurse-1-1 auditors, the Health Experts who have been given proper authorization and undergone training, and the Nurse-1-1 Security Team. 
  • Once the viewer of ePHI data has logged in and logged their reasoning to the Nurse-1-1 PHI Access logs, encrypted PHI will be decrypted during the viewer’s audit session.

How do you audit or monitor chats?

  • Customers of Nurse-1-1 can create and audit chats based on their own audit policies. Capabilities for customers to audit any of their users’ chats is provided to customers via the Nurse-1-1 dashboard. 
  • Nurse-1-1 offers Nurse-1-1 audit capabilities and services. Led by our Chief Nurse Practitioner, these services allow Nurse-1-1 to monitor and audit patient chats.
  • Nurse-1-1 will routinely access chats to review for:
    • Ensuring the agent is making a personal connection with users, listening, engaging, and understanding the user.
    • Information provided by the agent to users for accuracy and appropriate information provided, within the required guardrails.
    • Use of the consistent, pre-approved recommendations (Navigational Recommendations) for any information provided to the user about medications, side effects, benefits, etc.
  • Once a review is conducted, Nurse-1-1 provides feedback to the agents for each review to help correct any infractions or to highlight excellent work done by the agent.
  • If a Nurse-1-1 Health Expert does not follow their training or does not use the pre-approved recommendations when recommending next steps, or providing suggestions or advice, Nurse-1-1 will remove the health expert from the platform. This is done on a case by case basis.

Is there a disclaimer given to the consumer/patient about not providing medical advice to the consumer/patient?

The following disclaimer is delivered to consumers/patients within the accepted Terms of Service and may also be presented to the consumer/patient at the beginning of a live chat:

Nurse-1-1 does not provide medical advice or treatment and is not a healthcare provider.  The content is not intended to be a substitute for professional medical advice, diagnosis or treatment. By using the services, end users expressly agree that no patient-provider relationship of any kind is established between you and nurse-1-1 based on your interactions with health experts or any other use of the services. Health experts contacted using the nurse-1-1 services do not take the place of your physician or other qualified healthcare provider and you should continue to schedule regular and ongoing visits with your primary care physician (“pcp”).  For questions or concerns about your medical care or treatment, you should contact your pcp or another qualified healthcare professional instead of using the services.  If you are in need of immediate medical attention, please contact a healthcare professional or emergency services (such as 911).  Never disregard professional medical advice or delay in seeking it because of your use of the services.

How is Important Safety Information delivered to the patient/consumer?

Important Safety Information is customized and delivered to the patient immediately upon opening the chat widget.  ISI is placed at the top of the chat widget, below the medication name and above important informational links, such as Prescribing Information and Medication Guides.

What information is given through consistent, pre-approved Navigational Recommendation messaging?

Nurse-1-1 Navigational Recommendations play a crucial role in ensuring consistent and compliant information is provided to consumers/patients regarding the Prescribing Information. These recommendations encompass a wide range of critical details, including indications, dosage, contraindications, drug interactions, common side effects, and important safety information. By incorporating these guidelines, the Nurse-1-1 Live Nurse Chat platform not only enables adherence to FDA guardrails but also facilitates the swift delivery of accurate, compliant, and consistent messaging to users, promoting patient safety and informed decision-making.

Navigational Recommendations offer a powerful tool to create custom recommendations that can enhance influence, prompt patient action, and lead to positive outcomes. By leveraging these recommendations, teams can develop and review prebuilt call-to-action messages, saving time on repetitive tasks and ensuring compliance while driving patient engagement. The ability to personalize patient and provider support through tailored messaging enables a more effective influence on patients’ decision-making processes, guiding them towards desired outcomes.

How is other important information or documents delivered to the patient/consumer?

In addition to ensuring compliance, Nurse-1-1 Navigational Recommendations serve as a valuable resource for providing pre-approved content to consumers/patients in a fast and efficient manner. The live nurse within the chat can quickly deliver marketing and educational materials that have been created and approved by the Medical, Legal, and Regulatory (MLR/PRB) departments. This includes a wide range of important information and materials such as doctor discussion guides, patient brochures, copay card savings program details, patient advocacy group information, symptom checklists, and more. By leveraging these pre-approved resources, Nurse-1-1 enhances the patient experience by delivering accurate and relevant information, empowering patients with the knowledge they need to make informed decisions about their healthcare.

Follow-Up Email Campaigns

Nurse-1-1 Follow-Up Campaigns play a vital role in engaging consumers/patients after the live chat has ended. These campaigns nurture patients by triggering automated follow-ups that are relevant to their conversations, ensuring a continued connection throughout their healthcare journey. By staying close to the patient journey beyond the chat session, Nurse-1-1 can continue to influence positive outcomes and encourage next best actions based on the provided Navigational Recommendations. Additionally, these campaigns collect valuable data that can be used for gap analysis and opportunity discovery, allowing for continuous improvement in patient engagement, activation and support.
