Venio Inc announces an increased commitment to provisioning the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA), the federal law that protects patient health information, for our client base.

By providing in-depth HIPAA training and subsequent certification to employees who play a key role in the technology and healthcare markets, Venio is well-equipped to address the intricacies of HIPAA and HITECH mandated new requirements for sharing protected health information with business associates, for ensuring identity theft protection, for using and disclosing protected health information for marketing purposes, and for reporting breaches of protected health information.

The CHPSE credential denotes that Vesna Durkovic has an in-depth knowledge of the application of the HIPAA privacy rule as it relates to the uses and disclosures of protected health information (PHI). This includes using and disclosing PHI for treatment, payment, and healthcare operations as well as disclosure for public purposes. As a CHPSE, Ms. Durkovic also has an in-depth knowledge of the application of the HIPAA security rule as it relates to the security of PHI. She can identify technical or electronic threats to the healthcare enterprise and explain the technology available to reduce or prevent those threats. She has received advanced training in the topics of administrative, physical, and technical safeguards and is able to develop policies and procedures to describe those safeguards and address larger risk management strategies.

The CHPSE credential signifies that Ms. Durkovic is an expert in overall HIPAA compliance. She is able to evaluate whether policies and procedures are HIPAA-compliant and ensure that Venio is taking every possible step to protect the privacy and security of protected health information.

Venio Inc currently provides the preponderance of contractor support to the Defense Information Systems Agency’s (DISA’s) Program Management Office (PMO) for the Medical Community of Interest (Med-COI). This PMO leads an enterprise effort being developed in response to national level policies aimed at improving integrated Electronic Health Record information sharing between the Departments of Defense and Veterans Affairs.
