First and foremost, we do not sell or share your brushing data with third parties.
The Beam Brush tracks usage to encourage better brushing habits amongst our members. Then, we collect that data in the aggregate so that groups receive the best possible rates on insurance premiums.
Better brushing leads to better plans and premiums for your group! During our underwriting process that saves your group money using the brushing data, the PHI as well as brushing data itself is only used at the group level. It is not analyzed at an individual level.
While we transfer your brushing data, security is of the utmost importance. Brushing data from the brush to your mobile device is encrypted using AES. From the mobile device to Beam it is transferred over the long time web standard of HTTPS. Once on Beam's system, it stays in a virtual private cloud. Beam undergoes regular audits of basic security, as well as HIPAA and HITECH compliance.
