Choose Networks, an Iconic IT company, has demonstrated compliance with federal HIPAA regulation by completing Compliancy Group's proprietary 6-Stage HIPAA Risk Analysis and remediation process.
Wichita, KS, August 23, 2019 - Choose Networks is pleased to announce that it has achieved compliance with the federally mandated standards of the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) through the use of Compliancy Group's proprietary HIPAA methodology, The Guard® compliance tracking software, and HIPAA Seal of Compliance®.
HIPAA is made up of a set of regulatory standards governing the security, privacy, and integrity of sensitive healthcare data called protected health information (PHI). PHI is any demographic health care related information that can be used to identify a patient. Vendors who provide healthcare services which utilize PHI must be HIPAA compliant
“HIPPA compliancy matters to Choose Networks because IT is an unregulated industry that supports partners in the regulated healthcare industry,” says Chris Hoose, CEO of Choose Networks. “Going through the process has given our organization and employees a deeper understanding of the regulatory requirements. As a business associate to many healthcare partners, making sure we follow the same requirements in policies and administrative practices as our customers is critical. PHI must be protected and being HIPAA compliant assures our partners that we understand and comply with the regulations.”
“Choose Networks delivers an excellent customer experience, and this doesn't stop with technical guidance and support. It is paramount to do everything it takes to protect our customers. For this reason, we requested assistance from Compliancy Group to audit our business to ensure we understand and are upholding HIPAA compliancy regulations,” said Lindsay Smith, Vigilance Coordinator.
Chris Hoose, CEO, explains further, “obtaining the Compliancy Group’s HIPAA Compliant Seal has strengthened our policies and procedure to protect all of our data. The continued investment in protecting data is critical in today’s digital world. With small business breaches at an all-time high and increasing at an incredible pace, every business should adhere to strict policies and implement additional security measures to protect their data. This investment has improved the education of our employees, the policies that we implement, and the confidence in us of our healthcare partners. Compliancy Group was the obvious choice for us to obtain HIPAA compliancy because of the stellar reputation in the medical industry, their endorsements by countless medical associations, and their commitment and understanding of the IT industry’s important role in protecting PHI.”
Clients and patients are becoming more aware of the requirements of HIPAA and how the regulation protects their personal information. Forward-thinking providers like Choose Networks choose the HIPAA Seal of Compliance to differentiate their services.
