Seattle, WA (PRWEB) April 7, 2005
3DGrid today announced the release of HIPAA Checkup version 3.1, the newest version of its industry-leading HIPAA compliance software tool for small and medium sized healthcare practices. This latest version includes valuable enhancements to both content and usability. Principal among these enhancements is a collection of 42 sample HIPAA security procedures.
According to Bob Crimmins, VP of Product Development for 3DGrid ÂThe latest enhancements have been in development for several months and are a direct response to feedback from our customers across the country. Writing procedures is by far the most difficult aspect of HIPAA Security Rule compliance for physician offices and virtually every practice we work with has struggled with them. We worked closely with our customers to develop more effective methods for helping them get through the procedure writing step.Â
HIPAA Checkup 3.1 includes simple guidelines for writing procedures and allows users to access sample procedures from directly within HIPAA CheckupÂs built-in policy and procedure editor. "The process of writing a security procedure is not rocket science but itÂs not intuitive either, especially for healthcare professionals that donÂt have significant background in technology security. Seeing a sample procedure is an immense help in visualizing what a reasonable procedure for their own practice might look like." says Crimmins.
ÂWith the recent enhancements, HIPAA Checkup has clearly separated itself as the most effective product on the market for the small or medium sized healthcare practice.Â says Tobin Arthur, CEO of 3DGrid. ÂOur goal is to separate ourselves by a significant margin from the competition in the ease of use and effectiveness of our tools. We are constantly soliciting feedback from our clients and aim to develop and support our software in a way that demonstrates our commitment to their success. I think we have clearly accomplished that goal with HIPAA Checkup.Â
