Nashville, TN (PRWEB) August 13, 2012
Clearwater Compliance, a leading HIPAA-HITECH consultancy, will announce on Wednesday the formal launch of the Clearwater HIPAA Risk Analysis™, an interactive Software-as-a-Service tool designed to guide companies that handle electronic Protected Health Information (ePHI) to complete a HIPAA Security Risk Analysis required to comply with various HIPAA and HITECH regulations.
“Since the HITECH Act passed in 2009, HIPAA compliance has become a fundamental business risk management issue for executives in all organizations that create, receive, maintain or ePHI – not just covered entities, but business associates as well,” said Bob Chaput, founder and CEO of Clearwater Compliance. “We're looking forward to the formal launch this week.”
“With this tool, it’s easy to manage a large amount of disparate data, and focus in on the few things that truly matter. Clearwater has done a great job of simplifying a complex, detail-driven security risk analysis," according to Pete Niner, CISSP of Techumen.
