Compliancy Group has confirmed Alan Simberg, LLC has implemented an effective HIPAA compliance program that meets the regulatory standards of the HIPAA Rules.
As a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist and Chemical Dependency Counselor, Alan Simberg, LLC falls under the definition of covered entity and is required to comply with the standards of the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA).
Implementing a HIPAA compliance program can be a challenge for small healthcare providers, which is why many seek assistance from third-party compliance experts. To ensure no provisions of the HIPAA Rules were overlooked, Alan Simberg partnered with Compliancy Group and used the company’s proven HIPAA compliance methodology to ensure that policies and procedures were fully compliant with HIPAA standards, and all potential risks to the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of protected health information were addressed and reduced to a low and acceptable level.
“Being HIPAA compliant is important to me because it verifies that I follow the highest mental health industry standards to protect my client’s confidential health information. This helps to assure my clients that I have taken every possible precaution to protect their personal information,” said Alan Simberg. “By demonstrating that I adhere to this standard my clients can feel comfortable talking with me about their deeply personal and troubling concerns without having to worry about unauthorized individuals having access to their information.”
After completing Compliancy Group’s six stage implementation program, and tracking progress using Compliancy Group’s proprietary compliance tracking software solution – The Guard, the company’s HIPAA compliance subject matter experts assessed Alan Simberg’s good faith effort toward HIPAA compliance.
After confirming Alan Simberg had implemented an effective HIPAA compliance program and was fully compliant with the regulatory standards of the HIPAA Privacy Rule, HIPAA Security Rule, HIPAA Breach Notification Rule, HIPAA Omnibus Rule, and the HITECH Act, Compliancy Group awarded him the HIPAA Seal of Compliance.
“I believe that having my compliance with HIPAA standards validated is something that potential and current clients will find assuring and comforting,” said Simberg.
