Nashville, TN (PRWEB) May 07, 2014
Clearwater Compliance today announced Jim Vincent and Elisa Hill have accepted positions with the company. Vincent joins the client services delivery team and Hill is the newest member of the Clearwater sales team.
An increasing number of state and federal agencies are launching enforcement initiatives policing data privacy and security practices, leading many healthcare organizations to seek more robust HIPAA Risk Analysis and Risk Management solutions, thus fueling Clearwater’s continued growth.
Clearwater’s HIPAA-HITECH compliance solutions include software-assisted HIPAA compliance tools, consulting services to aid organizations without sufficient internal compliance resources or expertise, and educational programming to help healthcare organizations identify next steps on their compliance journey and develop the expertise to make forward progress.
Jim Vincent joins Clearwater as a HIPAA Privacy Consultant supporting Clearwater customers. Vincent has over 35 years of diversified healthcare experience in a broad range of settings including outpatient clinics, community hospitals and academic medical centers. Over the last 10 years he served in a variety of positions supporting the United States Air Force’s HIPAA compliance program, most recently as the Air Force Medical Operations Agency HIPAA Compliance Officer. In this capacity he was responsible for integrating Air Force and Department of Defense HIPAA privacy and security requirements into a single, comprehensive compliance program for execution throughout the Air Force enterprise of 75 healthcare facilities and 11 regional headquarters.
Vincent holds a Masters of Health Administration from Webster University, is Certified in Healthcare Privacy and Security (CHPS) by the American Health Information Management Association, and is Certified in Healthcare Compliance (CHC) as credentialed by the Health Care Compliance Association.
Hill joins Clearwater as Director of Business Development. She is a proven sales professional and relationship manager, bringing deep industry experience in healthcare, health information technology and HIPAA compliance. Hill was most recently a sales representative for NextGen Healthcare Information Systems, a provider of EHR, practice management and revenue cycle management solutions for hospitals, health systems, community health centers, physician practices and other healthcare organizations.
Previously she served as a healthcare account representative for NovaCopy and as a patient representative for Simplex Healthcare. Hill graduated with a BS in Business Management from the University of North Dakota.
“As we help more organizations tackle HIPAA-HITECH compliance, we are continually on the lookout for top talent to help us grow while also improving our ability to serve our customers well,” said Bob Chaput, CEO and founder of Clearwater Compliance. “Jim and Elisa are both perfect examples of our commitment to only hire the industry’s most accomplished and skilled professionals.”
