Computer Doc Achieves HIPAA Compliance with Compliancy Group

Compliancy Group has announced that the Indian Trail, NC-based IT firm Computer Doc is compliant with the HIPAA Privacy, Security, Breach Notification, Omnibus Rules and the requirements of the HITECH Act.

Since 1997, Computer Doc has been providing IT support and consultancy services to businesses in and around Charlotte, NC. The firm focuses on providing IT support to small to medium sized businesses to help them increase productivity, improve efficiency, and boost profitability through the intelligent use of IT.

In order to reassure healthcare companies that the firm is aware of the requirements of HIPAA and is committed to providing a HIPAA-compliant IT support service, Computer Doc signed up with the Compliancy Group and was guided through the compliance process.

“With HIPAA violation fine enforcement up 400% in recent years and 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,” explained Compliancy Group.

Using the Compliancy Group’s proprietary compliance tracking software, The Guard, and assisted by Compliancy Group coaches, Computer Doc completed the 6-stage implementation program and demonstrated compliance with all relevant provisions of HIPAA Rules.

“Achieving compliance with HIPAA has improved our business and opened the doors to many medical practices that we could not help before,” explained Computer Doc.

After demonstrating compliance with HIPAA, Computer Doc is entitled to display Compliancy’ Group’s HIPAA Seal of Compliance. The Seal of Compliance demonstrates to all HIPAA-covered entities that the firm is fully compliant with HIPAA regulations and patient’s ePHI is secure.
