KrypticMED Confirmed as HIPAA Compliant

The integrated software communication organization, KrypticMED, has recently demonstrated compliance with the standards of the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) and has been confirmed as having implemented an effective HIPAA compliance program.

KrypticMED’s platform is used by skilled nursing facilities and other health institutes to improve communication. Critical information is shared through the application to ensure medical professionals have the data they need to advise treatment and make better decisions for patients. That information naturally includes data classed as protected health information under HIPAA, which makes KrypticMED a business associate.

Business associates of HIPAA-covered entities are required to comply with certain provisions of the HIPAA Rules. To ensure that no aspect of compliance was overlooked, KrypticMED partnered with Compliancy Group and used the firm’s proven HIPAA methodology, and tracked its progress using Compliancy Group’s compliance tracking software solution – The Guard.

“Maintaining the privacy of critical data is at the top of our priority list. We are a community-oriented company with sheer dedication toward everyone we serve. Needless to say, retaining your trust means everything. That’s exactly why we only use the industry’s leading technologies to guarantee data confidentiality, integrity, and availability,” said KrypticMED co-founder, Igor Adulyan.

After completing that process, which included a six-stage risk analysis and remediation process, Compliancy Group verified KrypticMED’s good faith effort toward HIPAA compliance and awarded the company the HIPAA Seal of Compliance. The HIPAA Seal of Compliance demonstrates to current and future clients that KrypticMED is committed to ensuring the privacy and security of healthcare data.

“Being HIPAA Compliant helped us as a company better understand the importance of the security of our users’ information. We feel more comfortable moving forward with future business associates knowing that we are protected in the eyes of HIPAA,” said Adulyan. “Of course, this would not be possible without Compliancy Group. Our compliancy coach was there to help with any questions every step of the way, not to mention the fantastic features presented to us in The Guard. We highly recommend Compliancy Group for HIPAA compliance because of its affordability and excellent customer service.”
