Compliancy Group Helps SAR Technology Group Achieve HIPAA Compliance

SAR Technology Group has been confirmed as having achieved HIPAA compliance after successfully completing Compliancy Group’s proprietary 6-Stage HIPAA Risk Analysis and remediation process.

The regulatory standards of the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act ensure the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of healthcare data and protect the privacy of patients.

Vendors that serve healthcare clients must ensure they are fully compliant with HIPAA laws, but meeting all of the requirements of HIPAA can be a challenge. There is also no margin for error. Stiff fines can be imposed on business associates if they are found not to have complied with any aspect of HIPAA.

When SAR Technology Group moved into the healthcare sphere it soon became apparent that it was necessary to achieve HIPAA compliance internally. “Originally, we were planning to go through the process ourselves without external help. Soon it became evident this was not feasible as we lacked the expertise and knowledge to navigate the complex HIPAA laws,” explained SAR Technology Group. “After performing extensive research on companies providing HIPAA compliance services, and speaking to a few, we chose Compliancy Group as a partner. Their solution by far was the most comprehensive and easy to use and it was built with the end user in mind.”

Compliancy Group has developed a proprietary HIPAA compliance tracking solution called The Guard that partners can use to guide them through creating an effective HIPAA compliance program. The Guard simplifies the compliance process and ensures no aspect of HIPAA is missed. Compliancy Group’s compliance coaches are also available to help partners with their compliance efforts and answer any questions they have about any aspect of HIPAA law.

“[Compliancy Group] simplified the process and most importantly provided a solution to a problem we had in an affordable and truly achievable way,” explained SAR Technology Group. 

After implementing an effective compliance program, Compliancy Group’s compliance experts assessed SAR Technology Group’s good faith efforts to comply with HIPAA. After confirming all aspects of HIPAA laws had been satisfied, SAR Technology Group was awarded Compliancy Group’s ‘Seal of Compliance’.

The Seal of Compliance is helping SAR Technology Group to attract new customers and expand its offerings to healthcare organizations. “We have combined the services Compliancy Group offers with a full and comprehensive suite of IT services which meet and exceed HIPAA requirements, extending Compliancy Group’s offer of Compliance-as-a-Service to add IT-as-a-service.”
