Fresh Gravity Confirmed as HIPAA Compliant by Compliancy Group

The business and technology consulting firm Fresh Gravity has been confirmed by Compliancy Group as having taken all necessary steps to demonstrate compliance with the HIPAA Privacy Rule, Security Rule, Breach Notification Rule, and Omnibus Rule, and the requirements of the HITECH Act.

Fresh Gravity assists enterprises with their digital transformation journey through the use of state-of-the-art technologies. The company serves a broad range of clients in the life sciences and the healthcare industry, including pharma firms, medical device manufacturers, contract research organizations, and many payors and healthcare providers.

The services provided to those healthcare organizations and companies often involve access to protected health information, which makes Fresh Gravity a business associate under HIPAA. That means Fresh Gravity is required to comply with the provisions of the HIPAA Rules.

In order to ensure that Fresh Gravity was fully compliant with the HIPAA Rules, the company partnered with Compliancy Group and adopted its proprietary HIPAA methodology. Following that methodical process, while tracking progress using ‘The Guard’ compliance tracking solution, allowed the company to ensure its HIPAA compliance program was comprehensive and no aspect of HIPAA was overlooked.

After successful completion of that program, which included a comprehensive, organization-wide risk analysis and remediation program, Compliancy Group’s assessed the company’s good faith effort towards HIPAA compliance and awarded the company the HIPAA Seal of Compliance.

The HIPAA Seal of Compliance demonstrates a company is committed to ensuring the privacy and security of protected health information, has effective policies and procedures in place, and a robust ongoing HIPAA compliance program.

“It’s both important to and required by our Life Sciences & Healthcare clients that we handle sensitive PHI safely and in accordance with HIPAA laws.  The Compliancy Group has helped Fresh Gravity to build a robust, traceable HIPAA Compliance Program that will inspire our client’s confidence,” said Fresh Gravity.
