Huntington Beach, CA and Nashville, TN (PRWEB) October 17, 2013
Clearwater Compliance announced today it will be sponsoring and exhibiting at the California Association of Health Plans (CAHP) Annual Conference, October 21-23, in Huntington Beach, California. Executives from Clearwater will be demonstrating the company’s leading capabilities in HIPAA-HITECH compliance at Booth 101.
Clearwater is a proud supporter of CAHP and its member plans. Currently Clearwater fuels the compliance efforts of a number of California health plans, including, among others, Alameda Alliance for Health, HP of San Mateo, HP of San Joaquin, Central California Alliance for Health, and Partnership HP of California.
“We are in a brave new world of HIPAA compliance, including more rigorous enforcement, higher expectations and much stiffer penalties,” said Bob Chaput, CEO and Founder of Clearwater Compliance. “We’re honored to be helping CAHP members become and remain HIPAA compliant, both in their responsibilities as a Covered Entity, as well as how they manage their various Business Associates.”
At CAHP’s HIPAA-HITECH Conference in July, Chaput helped members understand the complexity of data privacy and compliance pursuant to the provisions of the Security, Privacy and Breach Notification Rules updated by the Omnibus Final Rule (OFR). During CAHP’s Annual Meeting, the company will debut the third generation of its proprietary HIPAA compliance software and conduct personal consultations with CAHP member plans to help them identify opportunities to better operationalize their compliance.
CAHP is a statewide trade association representing 40 full-service health plans. Through legislative advocacy, education and collaboration with other member organizations, CAHP works to sustain a strong environment in which member plans can provide access to products that offer choice and flexibility to the more than 24 million members they serve.
More than 700 healthcare leaders will be present for this year’s conference, which will be focused on discussing the future of California’s healthcare system and the challenges associated with the Accountable Care Act. Among the presenters for the event are Susan Dentzer, national commentator, and Ian Morrison, a noted healthcare futurist.
