LOS ANGELES, California (PRWEB) July 18, 2016
PCIHIPAA introduces OfficeSafe™, a new technology platform to help medical and dental practices comply with stringent Payment Card Industry (PCI) and Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) regulations. OfficeSafe™ provides customized HIPAA policies and documents, emergency and disaster recovery planning, staff training tools, and other resources to give healthcare professionals a new level of confidence that they have taken the necessary steps to protect their offices.
The launch of OfficeSafe™ comes on the heels of an important announcement surrounding HIPAA compliance regulation. The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services’ Office for Civil Rights recently announced that random HIPAA audits are expected to continue throughout 2016 because of the rising number of claims that protected health information has been compromised. As the Office for Civil Rights has become more aggressive with HIPAA enforcement, large settlements have become widespread, and penalties for HIPAA noncompliance are now a recurring reality.
Through OfficeSafe™ and its Compliance Programs, PCIHIPAA customers can now institute preemptive actions to help protect their practices from data breaches and ensure their compliance with PCI and HIPAA law. Now practices can easily:
- Create customized HIPAA policies and procedures.
- Conduct and store results of their mandatory HIPAA risk assessment.
- Generate, e-mail, sign, and store customized Business Associate Agreements.
- Train employees with videos, quizzes, and other materials.
- Create emergency and incident response plans.
- Access their data breach and PCI compliance monthly coverage.
- Access and maintain data backup and email encryption account information.
- Perform annual PCI self-assessment questionnaire (SAQ) requirements.
- Perform quarterly IP address scanning.
- Easily add users and access account information.
“With the launch of OfficeSafe™, PCIHIPAA offers the best solution on the market for small to mid-sized medical and dental practices that don’t have the time and resources to follow changes in governmental regulation and risks surrounding the protection of sensitive protected health information,” said Jeff Broudy, CEO of PCIHIPAA. “For less than $7 per day, our Compliance Program is a great value, and now with the launch of OfficeSafe™, we are adding additional value for our customers. We take care of the details related to compliance to allow medical and dental professionals to focus on what they do best: treating patients,” he added.
