HIPAA Seal of Compliance Awarded to Statewide Collection Service

Companies providing products and services to healthcare companies and require access to patient information must comply with the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) Regulations. The HIPAA makes sure that the privacy of patients’ protected health information (PHI) are secure at all times.

Statewide Collection Service would like to ascertain its clients that it complies with all the mandated standards of the government and that it possesses the physical, technical, and administrative requirements that ensure the protection of each patient identifier from unauthorized access.

The Compliancy Group assisted Statewide Collection Service to achieve its HIPAA seal of compliance. The Compliancy Group has a compliance tracking software known as TheGuard, which Statewide Collection used to monitor its progress towards compliance. The Compliance Group coaches were also available to provide the needed assistance.

The Compliancy Group methodology includes a risk assessment and a 6-stage remediation process. After the remediation process, all risks to the availability, confidentiality and integrity of ePHI are taken care of and reduced to a good and appropriate level.

To be eligible to receive the Seal of Compliance, it is necessary for companies to adhere to the requirements specified by the HIPAA Privacy Rule, HIPAA Security Rule, HIPAA Breach Notification Rule, the HITECH Act and the HIPAA Omnibus Rule. These are standards seriously vetted against federal laws and that meet NIST specifications.

By means of the TheGuard and together with the expertise of Compliancy Group’s coaches, Statewide Collection Service is confirmed to have complied with the safety measures to totally protect all furnished patient data.
