Greenville HIPAA Compliance

We are pleased to announce that we have taken all necessary steps to prove our good faith effort to achieve compliance with the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA). Using Compliancy Group’s proprietary HIPAA solution, The Guard™. we can track our compliance program and have earned our Seal of Compliance™. The Seal of Compliance is issued to organizations that have implemented an effective HIPAA compliance program through the use of The Guard.

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 individually identifiable healthcare-related information. If vendors who service healthcare clients encounter PHI in any way, those vendors must be HIPAA compliant.

We have completed Compliancy Group’s Implementation Program, adhering to the necessary regulatory standards outlined in the HIPAA Privacy Rule, Security Rule, Breach Notification Rule, Omnibus Rule, and HITECH.  Compliancy Group has verified our good faith effort to achieve HIPAA compliance through The Guard.
