Compliancy Group has revealed that Safe Partner Inc. has been deemed an effective HIPAA compliance program and has successfully finished its proprietary 6-stage HIPAA risk analysis and remediation process.
Safe Partner Inc. is a Belmont, CA-based boutique software development and consulting firm that supplies a full range of software services, from design to development, implementation, and ongoing customer support. The company was established in 1995 and works with clients in a wide variety of industry sectors, including healthcare. Some of the software solutions created by the company interact with healthcare data, which means the company is classified as a business associate and must adhered with HIPAA Rules.
To ensure that no part of HIPAA compliance went unnoticed, Safe Partner Inc sought assistance from Compliancy Group. Assisted by the company’s compliance coaches and using the company’s HIPAA compliance tracking software solution, The Guard, Safe Partner Inc was able to show its HIPAA compliance program covered all parts of the HIPAA Privacy, Security, Omnibus, and Breach Notification Rules. The company also carried out a thorough risk analysis to identify all potential risks to the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of protected health information, and ensured risks were effectively addressed in line with the requirements of the HIPAA Security Rule.
After displaying that its policies and processes met the minimum standards required by HIPAA, the company’s good faith effort toward HIPAA compliance was recognized and the company was given the Compliancy Group HIPAA Seal of Compliance.
The HIPAA Seal of Compliance helps the company differentiate its services and demonstrates to existing and potential clients that Safe Partner Inc. is committed to ensuring the privacy and security of any healthcare data supplied to the firm or accessible through its software solutions.
