McLean, VA (PRWEB) June 27, 2013
ControlCase, a leading global provider of Compliance as a Service (CaaS), Certifications, and IT Governance, Risk and Compliance (GRC) software continues to support clients impacted by Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) compliance in accordance with the new Omnibus Rule.
The new Omnibus Rule enhances patients’ privacy protections, provides individuals new rights to their health information as well as strengthens the government’s ability to enforce the law. Previously, the HIPAA Privacy and Security Rules focused on health providers and health plan entities that process heath claims. The changes now expand many of the requirements to Business Associates (BA) of these entities that receive protected health information (PHI) including contractors and subcontractors. The maximum penalty for non-compliance based on negligence is now $1.5 million per violation.
ControlCase helps develop the operating model as well as the governance and risk structure for clients’ HIPAA compliance related activities. Speaking about the ControlCase HIPAA CaaS, Hugh Kominars, Vice President Security Consulting, ControlCase said, “Our comprehensive service helps clients achieve and maintain compliance with HIPAA as well as helps them verify and manage their Business Associates who are now subject to HIPAA.”
The company has already been engaged with some of the largest organizations who are subject to these new standards; including one of the nation’s leading providers of health and wellness solutions. ControlCase HIPAA CaaS offers access to the skills, technology and expertise necessary to comply with the HIPAA Omnibus Rule and better serve clients and partners.
“The HIPAA Omnibus Rule became effective on March 26th 2013. Many companies are already hard at work challenged with achieving compliance before the September deadline this year. Our turnkey managed solution is ideally suited for such companies,” said Kishor Vaswani, CEO of ControlCase.
Customer Benefits of ControlCase HIPAA CaaS Solution:
The unique, hybrid technology in the ControlCase HIPAA CaaS translates into direct value for the customer – it enables companies to quickly and effectively integrate compliance as an incessant program, rather than a once a year activity. Additionally, the flexible design allows customers to manage ongoing obligations with the fewest number of internal resources.
As a result of the increasing need to strengthen privacy and security protections for health information, the ControlCase HIPAA CaaS enhances the operational efficiencies and resiliency of the customer’s compliance related activities. This model makes ControlCase the “one stop” shop for all project management dedicated to HIPAA compliance. It also offers security assessors ongoing checkpoints to ensure that compliance activities are in alignment with regulations as well as providing automated uploads for testing services. The ControlCase certification offers strengthened breach reporting and risk analysis as outlined by the Omnibus Rule.
Finally, given the company’s expertise in multiple certifications, customers will achieve HIPAA compliance through simplified solutions which allow for recertification efficiently and parallel management for overlapping certifications.
