The Wichita, KS-based IT service provider, Choose Networks, has achieved HIPAA compliance with Compliancy Group.
Choose Networks was established in 2001 to provide small to medium sized businesses with enterprise-grade IT support. The company now employs over 35 people and provides IT support services to a wide range of companies, including many in the healthcare industry.
As an IT service provider, Choose Networks requires access to systems containing protected health information. As such, the company is considered a HIPAA business associate and is required to comply with HIPAA Rules.
In order to ensure that all requirements of HIPAA have been met and to demonstrate the company follows the same policies, procedures, and administrative practices as its healthcare clients, Choose Networks partnered with Compliancy Group and completed its 6-Stage HIPAA risk analysis and remediation process.
“Choose Networks delivers an excellent customer experience, and this doesn’t stop with technical guidance and support. It is paramount to do everything it takes to protect our customers,” said Lindsay Smith, Vigilance Coordinator at Choose Networks. “For this reason, we requested assistance from Compliancy Group to audit our business to ensure we understand and are upholding HIPAA compliancy regulations.”
Using Compliancy Group’s proprietary HIPAA methodology and its compliance software, The Guard, Choose Networks demonstrated compliance with all aspects of HIPAA Rules and has been awarded Compliancy Group’s HIPAA Seal of Compliance.
The Seal of Compliance confirms Choose Networks has met its requirements and has implemented an ongoing program to ensure continued compliance with the HIPAA Privacy, Security, Breach Notification Rules and the HITECH Act.
The company is using Compliancy Group’s Seal of Compliance to differentiate its services from the competition and demonstrate to prospective clients that the company is fully committed to HIPAA compliance.
