EnTech Confirms HIPAA-Compliant Status with Compliancy Group

The Fort Myers, FL-based managed IT service provider, EnTech, has been confirmed as in compliance with Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) Rules by Compliancy Group.

Entech has been serving businesses in Southwest Florida for more than 20 years. The company offers managed IT and integration services to help businesses get the most out of information technology, along with strategic technology consultancy services to help businesses choose the best IT architectures to meet their needs.

In order to provide those services to healthcare organizations, EnTech is required to comply with HIPAA Rules. The company must implement appropriate safeguards to ensure the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of electronic protected health information (ePHI) and its employees made aware of their responsibilities with respect to HIPAA and ePHI.

Assisted by Compliancy Group’s HIPAA coaches and using “The Guard” compliance tracking solution, EnTech has successfully completed Compliancy Group’s 6-Stage Risk Analysis and Remediation Process.

Successful completion of that process has been confirmed by Compliancy Group, resulting in the company being awarded Compliancy Group’s HIPAA Seal of Compliance. The HIPAA Seal of Compliance is only awarded to companies that have satisfied all requirements of the HIPAA Privacy, Security, Omnibus, and Breach Notification Rules and have an effective HIPAA compliance program in place.

“We are very proud to have achieved this designation as it shows our commitment to our clients and community,” said David Spire, Entech’s Chief Development Officer. “With the ever-changing threat landscape, organizations in the healthcare field that directly or indirectly provide medical care today need to take all the necessary steps to protect all of our personal information.”

Along with a signed business associate agreement, the HIPAA Seal of Compliance provides reassurances to current and future EnTech clients that the company is committed to privacy and security and is fully aware of its responsibilities under HIPAA.
