Is patients' information secure?

AirMini / Security

Yes. Your patients' privacy is very important to us. ResMed protects personal health information from needless exposure. We meet the terms of the leading healthcare privacy and security standards:

  • Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA).

  • Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health (HITECH) Act.

These standards cover the ways patient information is sent, stored and handled.

The AirMini and the AirMini app have security features in place to help protect privacy and prevent unauthorized access to data. These include:

  • Use of a QR code to establish trust between the AirMini and the AirMini app.

  • Unique keys for each mobile device and AirMini pairing.

  • Application-level encryption for the transmission of data, in addition to Bluetooth security.

  • Encryption of data stored within the AirMini app and sent to the cloud.

Protecting the smartphone against malware helps keep personal information and sleep data safe and secure. ResMed recommends the following (refer to the smartphone user instructions for full details):

  • Enable PIN or fingerprint security on the smartphone.

  • Avoid unsafe modification of the smartphone's operating system.

  • Consider enabling remote data wipe on the smartphone. Remote data wipe is a function available on the smartphone for remotely erasing personal data in the event that the phone is lost or stolen.

  • Keep the operating systems up to date with security patches.

  • AirMini app software updates for iOS and Android are available from the Apple App and Google Play stores. Ensure that you always have the latest version installed on your smartphone and encourage your patients to do the same.
