HKG Epitherapeutics 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 health care data, called protected health information (PHI). PHI is any demographic health care-related information that can be used to identify a patient. If vendors who service health care clients come into contact with PHI in any way, those vendors must be HIPAA compliant.
HKG Epitherapeutics has completed Compliancy Group’s Six Stage Implementation Program, adhering to the necessary regulatory standards outlined in the HIPAA Privacy Rule, HIPAA Security Rule, HIPAA Breach Notification Rule, HIPAA Omnibus Rule, and HITECH. These standards have been heavily vetted against the letter of the law and meet federal NIST requirements. HKG Epitherapeutics’ good faith effort toward HIPAA compliance through the use of The Guard has been verified by the HIPAA subject matter experts and Compliance Coaches at Compliancy Group.
The HIPAA Seal of Compliance is issued to organizations that have implemented an effective HIPAA compliance program through the use of The Guard, Compliancy Group’s proprietary compliance tracking solution.
HKG Epitherapeutics has completed the Compliancy Group Implementation Program under the guidance of Compliancy Group’s team of expert Compliance Coaches®. The important intersection between HIPAA compliance and data security is often lost on IT providers working in the health care space. Clients are becoming more aware of the requirements of HIPAA compliance–and forward-thinking providers like HKG Epitherapeutics choose the HIPAA Seal of Compliance to differentiate their services.
