Dr. Huddle Confirmed as HIPAA Compliant by Compliancy Group

Dr. Huddle has announced it has completed Compliancy Group’s 6-Stage HIPAA Risk Analysis and remediation process and has been confirmed as in compliance with the HIPAA Privacy, Security, Omnibus, and Breach Notification Rules.

Dr. Huddle is a Cupertino, CA-based startup that has developed a gateway that connects general dentists with specialists across North America. The gateway, the first of its kind in America, brings together the many different dental specialties under one roof and allows patient-centered treatment plans to be developed faster and more efficiently and for the provision of dental care to be optimized.

Through the platform, general dentists can find specialists capable of providing treatment to their patients, radiographs and patient notes can easily be shared, appointments can be tracked, insurance payments automated, and referrals can be handled smoothly by specialists.

Dr. Huddle is classed as a business associate under HIPAA and is required to comply with the HIPAA Rules. To ensure compliance with all aspects of HIPAA and to demonstrate to potential members that PHI will be secured at all times, Dr. Huddle teamed up with Compliancy Group.

Assisted by Compliancy Group’s compliance coaches, and using the company’s proprietary HIPAA compliance tracking software, The Guard, Dr. Huddle ensured that the company was in compliance with HIPAA. The company’s good faith effort toward HIPAA compliance was assessed by Compliancy Group and the company was confirmed as having implemented an effective HIPAA compliance program and was awarded the Compliancy Group HIPAA Seal of Compliance.

“Compliancy Group made the process of being HIPAA compliant a breeze. HIPAA is extremely important to our company because we are dealing with ePHI on a daily basis, and every professional is able to share patient information with other professionals.”
