Compliancy Group has announced that Eyeward inc. has implemented an effective HIPAA compliance program and has achieved HIPAA compliance.
EyeWard is a free-to-use peer-to-peer consulting platform for iOS that allows healthcare professionals to connect with colleagues and securely communicate and share medical images. The app is intended to help physicians share clinical knowledge and consult with other medical professionals. Use of the app allows physicians to improve workflow and deliver better care to patients.
“Eyeward is dedicated to helping physicians provide the highest standard of care for their patients. Understanding that this level of care may require the use of sensitive health care information, Eyeward wanted to ensure all the appropriate measures were taken to properly safeguard PHI,” said Eyeward CEO, Stephen Atallah.
To ensure compliance with all provisions of HIPAA, Eyeward teamed up with Compliancy Group. Using Compliancy Group’s HIPAA compliance tracking solution, The Guard, and assisted by its compliance coaches, Eyeward was able to ensure its solution, policies, and procedures were fully compliant with HIPAA requirements.
Eyeward also completed Compliancy Group’s 6-stage HIPAA Risk Analysis and remediation process and the company’s good faith effort toward HIPAA compliance saw the firm awarded Compliancy Group’s HIPAA Seal of Compliance.
The Seal of Compliance demonstrates to HIPAA-covered entities and business associates that Eyeward has implemented an effective HIPAA compliance program and that its platform meets all requirements of HIPAA Rules and can be used for securely communicating patient information.
“By using our platform, doctors are putting their trust in Eyeward to secure their health care data,” said Atallah. “We wanted our users to know that we are doing all that we can to protect them and their patients.”
