Let’s Talk Interactive Achieves HIPAA Compliance with Compliancy Group

The customizable telehealth solution provider, Let’s Talk Interactive, Inc., has recently demonstrated HIPAA compliance with the federally mandated standards of the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) and has been confirmed as having implemented an effective HIPAA compliance program.

Vendors who service health care clients who come into contact with PHI in any way must be HIPAA compliant. Policies and procedures must be implemented, maintained, and followed to ensure the privacy of protected health information, and administrative, physical, and technical safeguards implemented to ensure the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of PHI.

To ensure that no aspect of compliance was overlooked, Let’s Talk Interactive partnered with Compliancy Group and used the firm’s proven HIPAA methodology to ensure adherence to the necessary regulatory standards outlined in the HIPAA Privacy Rule, HIPAA Security Rule, HIPAA Breach Notification Rule, HIPAA Omnibus Rule, and the HITECH Act, with progress along that compliance journey tracked using Compliancy Group’s compliance tracking software solution – The Guard.

“At Let’s Talk Interactive, we have a bedrock commitment to making sure our patients’ private health care information stays private,” said Arthur Cooksey, chairman and CEO of Let’s Talk Interactive. “That extends from our leading-edge telehealth technology itself to the people at all levels of our company. Our clients demand it, our patients deserve it, and working with Compliancy Group ensures that we will continue to do just that.”
