Eric G Piascik D.M.D Confirmed as HIPAA Compliant

Eric G Piascik D.M.D. has used Compliancy Group’s proprietary HIPAA methodology and has been confirmed as compliant with the HIPAA Rules and the HITECH Act.

Dental practices are covered entities under the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act and are required to achieve compliance with the regulatory standards of the HIPAA Privacy, Security, Omnibus, and Breach Notification Rules and the HITECH Act. Achieving and maintaining compliance can be a challenge, which is why many practices seek assistance from third-party compliance specialists.

Compliance Group is one such vendor that offers an easy-to-follow HIPAA compliance methodology and clients track progress on their compliance journeys using the company’s proprietary software solution – the Guard. “We, as a private practice, chose Compliancy Group and The Guard to take us through HIPAA compliance,” said Piascik. “It has benefited our office by keeping all of our staff aware of how secure things need to be. Being HIPAA compliant is a priority of ours because it is a priority for our patients and we as an office strive to keep our patients and their health history safe and secure.”

Compliancy Group’s HIPAA compliance program includes a 6-Stage HIPAA risk analysis and remediation process. After the successful completion of that process, Eric G Piascik D.M.D. underwent a HIPAA compliance assessment and was confirmed as having met the regulatory standards of the HIPAA Rules and HITECH and the practice was awarded the HIPAA Seal of Compliance. The HIPAA Seal of Compliance demonstrates to current and future patients that the practice is committed to ensuring the privacy and security of protected health information and has implemented an effective HIPAA compliance program to ensure continued compliance.

We look forward to serving our patients and community with the highest oral health care possible,” said Piascik.
