Posted, a provider of AI-driven tools to ease the administrative burden on healthcare providers, has been confirmed as having implemented an effective HIPAA compliance program by Compliancy Group.
Posted provides predictive analysis, price transparency, and medical billing and claims services to healthcare providers, which naturally sees the company provided with patients’ protected health information (PHI). As such, Posted is classed as a business associate under HIPAA and is required to implement safeguards to ensure the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of PHI and comply with strict rules to ensure patient privacy while providing IT services and support for its covered entity clients.
To ensure no aspect of the complex HIPAA Privacy, Security, Breach Notification, Omnibus Rules, and the HITECH Act was overlooked, Posted partnered with Compliancy Group.
“Privacy is not just a compliance obligation, but Posted’s company value. As we work on getting medical practices paid in 24 hours, we handle insurance claims data, patient benefits information and other PHI. We work hard to give our customers the highest confidence that we take security and privacy of this data extremely seriously,” said Alok Kothari, CEO of Posted.
Compliancy Group has developed a HIPAA compliance methodology that HIPAA-covered entities and business associates can follow to ensure they are fully compliant with the HIPAA Rules. The journey toward compliance is tracked using Compliancy Group’s proprietary software solution, The Guard.
Posted followed that methodology, which includes a 6-Stage HIPAA Risk Analysis and remediation process, after which Compliancy Group’s HIPAA compliance subject matter experts assessed Posted’s compliance program and verified its good faith effort toward HIPAA compliance. The successful completion of the program saw Posted awarded Compliancy Group’s HIPAA Seal of Compliance.
The HIPAA Seal of Compliance demonstrates Posted is committed to ensuring the privacy and security of healthcare data, has implemented HIPAA-compliant policies and procedures, and has an ongoing HIPAA compliance program. The HIPAA Seal of Compliance helps companies such as Posted differentiate their services and demonstrate they are fully committed to HIPAA compliance.
