HIPAA Seal of Compliance Awarded to ScribeMedics LLC

ScribeMedics LLC, a provider of real-time, remote, EHR charting, medical transcription, virtual back office, and medical record review services, has demonstrated to Compliancy Group that the company and its services are fully compliant with the regulatory standards outlined in the HIPAA Privacy Rule, HIPAA Security Rule, HIPAA Breach Notification Rule, HIPAA Omnibus Rule, and the HITECH Act.

Compliancy Group offers HIPAA -covered entities and business associates a proven methodology for ensuring compliance with all provisions of the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act. HIPAA consists of a set of regulatory standards governing the security, privacy, and integrity of sensitive healthcare data called protected health information (PHI), which is any individually identifiable healthcare-related information.

Any vendor that is used by a HIPAA-covered entity that comes into contact with PHI in any form is classed as a business associate under HIPAA and must ensure they are HIPAA compliant. The services provided by ScribeMedics require contact with PHI, so HIPAA compliance is mandatory.

ScribeMedics chose to partner with Compliancy Group and used its Six Stage Implementation Program to ensure that no aspect of HIPAA compliance had been overlooked. Throughout that process, progress was tracked using Compliancy Group’s proprietary HIPAA-compliance tracking software solution, The Guard.

After completing the compliance program, which includes a risk analysis and remediation process, Compliancy Group’s HIPAA compliance experts assessed ScribeMedics’ HIPAA compliance efforts and awarded ScribeMedics the ‘HIPAA Seal of Compliance.’ The HIPAA Seal of Compliance demonstrates to current and future clients that ScribeMedics is committed to ensuring the privacy and security of PHI and has implemented an effective HIPAA compliance program.

“HIPAA Compliance is not only a regulation but our responsibility,’said Dinesh a.k.a Carl Johnson, Founder of ScribeMedics.
