FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. – WheelHouse IT has been recognized for obtaining the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) Seal of Compliance Verification by Compliancy Group, the healthcare industry’s third-party HIPAA verification supplier. As a leading provider of IT managed services in a variety of fields that require HIPAA compliance, WheelHouse IT is now poised to more effectively serve its diverse client base.
HIPAA was signed into law in 1996 in an effort to nationalize the standards for security, privacy, and integrity of sensitive healthcare data. Collectively, this data is called protected health information (PHI), and it includes any health information concerning a person’s health status, health care treatments, or the means through which a patient pays for care.
Compliancy Group’s HIPAA Seal of Compliance is only awarded to companies that have been vetted and have instituted a compliance program within their business. Specifically, the companies recognized by Compliancy Group have demonstrated both an understanding and implementation of the HIPAA Privacy Rule, Breach Notification Rule, Security Rule, Omnibus Rule, and the ideas contained in the HITECH Act of 2009.
The certification is not merely a recognition that WheelHouse IT has shown mastery of HIPAA within the confines of the company, though. It demonstrates that WheelHouse IT can effectively establish HIPAA compliance in the businesses it serves.
“As technology continues to be more and more ingrained in the world around us, the value of data and potential for that data to be breached grows exponentially. Accordingly, WheelHouse IT has committed itself to embracing the protocols recommended by HIPAA to ensure it is able to deliver its services according to best practices and in the most compliant ways possible. It was important to us to focus on providing compliant security services, backed by the Compliancy Group’s HIPAA Seal of Compliance.” – Adam Kaplan, President.
