San Diego, CA (PRWEB) March 10, 2005
HipaaManager, Inc., a leading provider of scalable HIPAA compliancy privacy and security software solutions, announced today their newest product Â RCATÂ (Risk Control Analysis Tool). RCAT was designed as a complete application for analyzing, documenting, and implementing an accurate and thorough assessment of the potential risks and vulnerabilities to the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of electronic protected health information (ePHI) stored, maintained, and transmitted by an organization. RCAT is an invaluable tool that will assist in completing the risk analysis, which is the first and most comprehensive requirement of the HIPAA Security portion of the rule.
The release of this new product will allow medium to large healthcare organizations concerned about administrative, physical, and technical security risks and their appropriate safeguards, to perform their own risk analysis without necessarily needing to hire external resources. RCAT will also help self-insured organizations or other businesses that work with healthcare entities in a business associate capacity to interpret, meet and comply with the HIPAA security regulation requirements scheduled for implementation in April 2005.
RCATÂ guides the user through a series of questions and will help successfully complete a comprehensive risk analysis. ÂThe release of RCAT will provide the most cost-effective and comprehensive solution on the market to date with a roadmap to help HIPAA security compliance officials and Information Technology officers perform an accurate, complete, and thorough risk analysis,Â said Mike Sawyer, Vice President of HipaaManager. The product was designed using the National Institute for Standards and Technology (NIST) methodology. HipaaManagerÂs products are endorsed by various state and local healthcare organizations, and are optimized for ease of use including the translation of each HIPAA security rule along with instructions on what is needed for cost-effective compliance.
