"We are proud to have achieved this milestone and look forward to offering HIPAA covered entities with our superior brand of Information Technology and Software Development Services," Timothy Cormier, Chief Executive Officer, Big IT, Inc.
VALENCIA, Calif. (PRWEB) April 01, 2020
Big IT, Inc is pleased to announce that it has achieved compliance with the federally mandated standards of the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) through the use of Compliancy Group's proprietary HIPAA methodology, The Guard® compliance tracking software, and HIPAA Seal of Compliance®.
HIPAA is made up of a set of regulatory standards governing the security, privacy, and integrity of sensitive health care data called protected health information (PHI). PHI is any demographic healthcare-related information that can be used to identify a patient. If vendors who service health care clients come into contact with PHI in any way, those vendors must be HIPAA compliant.
HIPAA matters to Big IT, Inc because it follows a robust code of ethics that Big IT, Inc believes in and follows. With HIPAA violation fine enforcement up 400% in recent years and a series of high-profile breaches and multi-million dollar settlements that drew national attention, the importance of HIPAA compliance for both IT service providers (BAs) and their healthcare IT clients (CEs) has never been more urgent.
Big IT, Inc has completed Compliancy Group's Six Stage Implementation Program, adhering to the necessary regulatory standards outlined in the HIPAA Privacy Rule, HIPAA Security Rule, HIPAA Breach Notification Rule, HIPAA Omnibus Rule, and HITECH. These standards have been heavily vetted against the letter of the law and meet federal NIST requirements. Big IT, Inc's good faith effort toward HIPAA compliance through the use of The Guard has been verified by the HIPAA subject matter experts and Compliance Coaches® at Compliancy Group.
94% covered entities failed their HIPAA audits — we do not want our clients to be among them. An average HIPAA fine is now a stunning $1.5 million.
The HIPAA Seal of Compliance is issued to organizations that have implemented an effective HIPAA compliance program through the use of The Guard, Compliancy Group's proprietary compliance tracking solution.
"We are proud to have achieved this milestone and look forward to offering HIPAA covered entities with our superior brand of Information Technology and Software Development Services," said Big IT's Chief Executive Officer, Timothy Cormier.
Clients and patients are becoming more aware of the requirements of HIPAA compliance and how the regulation protects their personal information. Forward-thinking providers like Big IT, Inc choose the HIPAA Seal of Compliance to differentiate their services.
