North Haven, CT (PRWEB) March 27, 2013
SMB Networks, LLC, has today unveiled their newest offering – Hassle-Free HIPAA. The company has built their reputation on providing the most outstanding services and solutions for small and medium sized businesses (SMBs), and this new offering provides tremendous benefits for medical practices struggling with HIPAA compliance. This is particularly important today, with the release of the new HIPAA Omnibus Rule by the federal Department of Health and Human Services.
The Omnibus Rule officially goes into effect on March 26, and medical practices must be in compliance with new regulations governing healthcare data security and patient privacy. The Department of Health and Human Services will actively monitor and enforce these new requirements, as well, meting out stiff penalties to medical practices not in full compliance. However, an incredible number of medical practices and doctor’s offices are unsure even where to begin.
According to Peter Verlezza of SMB Networks, “We’re seeing an epidemic of noncompliance among the medical community. Most practices simply don’t know where to begin. Our Hassle-Free HIPAA takes the guesswork out of compliance. We can deliver a ‘done for you’ program that meets the ‘spirit’ of the regulations and will avoid costly penalties while ensuring the integrity of protected health information.”
Hassle-Free HIPAA is a comprehensive solution to ensure 100% compliance with the new Omnibus Rule for all medical practices. Not only that, but SMB Networks’ solution also ensures full compliance on the part of a practice’s business associates and subcontractors, an area that has always been enormously difficult to deal with.
Peter Verlezza goes on to say, “Our goal was to find a cost-effective way to get medical practices, their business associates and subcontractors compliant. The final Omnibus Rule becomes effective on March 26, 2013. Covered entities and business associates of all sizes will have 180 days beyond the effective date of the final rule to come into compliance with most of the final rule’s provisions, including the modifications to the Breach Notification Rule and the changes to the HIPAA Privacy Rule.”
Hassle-Free HIPAA takes the confusion, frustration and uncertainty out of HIPAA compliance and ensures that every medical facility, subcontractor and business associate is in line with the requirements set forth by the new Omnibus Rule in a 100% managed capacity that takes the onus off the medical practice.
