San Diego, CA (PRWEB) April 5, 2005
Networks Plus Technology Group, a leading national provider of technology solutions, and HipaaManager, Inc., a well recognized and heavily endorsed leader in HIPAA Compliance, today announced a strategic distribution agreement. As part of the agreement, Network Plus will distribute HipaaManagerÂs two software product lines known as HCATÂ (HIPAA Compliance Assessment Tool) and RCATÂ (Risk Control Analysis Tool).
HCATÂ is co-authored by PrivaPlan Associates, Inc. an organization endorsed by the California Medical Association, the Connecticut State Medical Society, and the Louisiana State Medical Society. Several state medical associations, trade groups and professional associations including the Medical Society of the State of New York and Vermont Medical Society also endorse HCATÂ. HCATÂ is a web-based application tool that assesses a current medical environment and corresponding HIPAA security compliance level. The user-friendly software provides a clear, concise, easy to understand roadmap towards reasonable and appropriate HIPAA compliance specific to the office in need.
The strategic distribution agreement allows Networks Plus to bundle and distribute the HipaaManager products with their IT solution sets. This total solution approach enables a more complete and cost-effective HIPAA Security solution to all organizations affected by the upcoming April HIPAA Security deadline.
This is an incredible opportunity for Networks Plus to partner with a company that has received this level of endorsement from multiple state medical associations. HipaaManagerÂs software platforms, HCATÂ and RCATÂ, have the capability of taking a very complex dilemma for medical institutions (HIPAA compliance) and simplifying it for them, taking some of the pain and confusion away associated with HIPAA Security compliance issues. This simple software tool processes and documents ePHI specifications, revolutionizing the approach to becoming HIPAA compliant. "The software is the TurboTaxÂ for HIPAA, and makes compliance a cinch," stated James Kernan, President of Networks Plus.
HipaaManager will leverage Networks PlusÂ national distribution capabilities as an established provider in hardware and software procurement. Remediation and professional services are also core competencies for Networks Plus, and will allow for turnkey solutions for the medical industry.
"We are extremely pleased to work with a well-respected technology leader like Networks Plus," said Mike Sawyer of HipaaManager, Inc.
Adds Chris Piecukonis, Vice President of Professional Services for Networks Plus, "The company has a strategy of working in partnership with key manufacturers to deliver value-added technology solutions. We are delighted to reach an agreement with HipaaManager, a company with products that are highly regarded for quality, performance and competitive pricing. We will work closely with our new, esteemed partner to provide our customers with the ideal blend of powerful yet economical IT security solutions that solve their business problems while ensuring compliance with mounting legislative and business continuity requirements."
