CTI Technology, an Elgin, IL-based managed IT service provider, has demonstrated compliance with the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) Rules using Compliancy Group’s proprietary HIPAA methodology and compliance tracking solution, The Guard.
Any company that provides a product or service to healthcare organizations that requires access to systems containing protected health information (PHI) is classed as a HIPAA business associate. Following the introduction of the HIPAA Omnibus Final Rule, all business associates of HIPAA-covered entities must comply with HIPAA Rules or face stiff financial penalties for noncompliance.
CTI Technology believes compliance with HIPAA Rules is essential for protecting patient privacy, improving data security, and reducing fraudulent activity. The company educates its clients on the measures required to ensure compliance with the HIPAA Security Rule and how, through compliance, cyberattacks can be thwarted and regulatory fines avoided.
CTI Technology has recently completed Compliancy Group’s 6-stage risk analysis and remediation program and has demonstrated compliance with the regulatory standards of the HIPAA Privacy Rule, HIPAA Security Rule, HIPAA Breach Notification Rule, HIPAA Omnibus Rule, and HITECH Act.
After completing the program and demonstrating HIPAA compliance, the company was awarded Compliancy Group’s “HIPAA Seal of Compliance”. CTI Technology is one of the only tech companies in the North-western region of Chicago to ensure that all employees have received the required training and are fully aware of their responsibilities under HIPAA and the importance of the privacy and security standards and implementation specifications of HIPAA.
The HIPAA Seal of Compliance helps CTI Technology differentiate its services from its competitors and demonstrate to prospective healthcare clients that the company is fully complaint with HIPAA regulations.
