Jacksonville Children’s and Multispecialty Clinic Achieves HIPAA Compliance with Compliancy Group

Jacksonville Children’s and Multispecialty Clinic (JCMC) has ensured it is fully compliant with the HIPAA Rules by following Compliancy Group’s proven HIPAA compliance methodology.

JCMC operates multiple clinics in Onslow, Carteret, and New Hanover Counties in Jacksonvile, North Carolina and its doctors and healthcare professionals have been providing unexcelled personal medical care to the adults and children for more than 40 years.

JCMC uses a combination of ‘high tech’ and ‘high touch’ and this approach has helped make it one of the leading medical organizations in Eastern North Carolina. The healthcare provider operates facilities at 14 locations and has more than 40 board-certified providers specializing in pediatrics, neonatology, family medicine, behavioral health, gastroenterology, and allergy care.

As a HIPAA-covered entity, JCMC is required to comply with the Privacy, Security, Breach Notification, and Omnibus Rules of the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act.

In order to ensure full compliance with the HIPAA Rules, it helps to work with third-party HIPAA compliance specialists. Compliancy Group has developed a proven HIPAA compliance methodology, which its clients adopt to guide them through the compliance process. Assisted by Compliancy Group’s compliance coaches, clients complete the 6-stage HIPAA risk analysis and remediation process and track their progress using Compliancy Group’s proprietary compliance tracking software – The Guard. This process not only helps clients achieve HIPAA compliance, but ensure compliance is maintained over time.

“HIPAA gives JCMC’s patients the confidence necessary to give their information freely to their providers, which improves their care and makes our job as physicians easier,” said Dr. Madhur Mittal, President and JCMC Medical Director.

After completing the compliance process and assessing and remediating risks to the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of PHI, Compliancy Group awarded JCMC the HIPAA Seal of Compliance. The HIPAA Seal of Compliance demonstrates JCMC’s commitment to ensuring patient privacy and securing health data.

“HIPAA has improved our business by making our patients confident in our devotion to their privacy. This, in turn, translates itself into more satisfied patients, leading in turn, to better word-of-mouth recommendation to potential new patients,” said Dr. Mittal. “The Compliancy Group has given us confidence that we are current in our HIPAA compliance and are ready to meet any privacy challenges, now or into the future!  The Guard is certainly one of the best HIPAA solutions on the market.”
