Compliancy Group has announced that Princeton Internal Medicine and Geriatrics, a primary care clinic in Princeton, NJ, has implemented an effective HIPAA compliance program and is compliant with the federally mandated standards of the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) and the Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health (HITECH) Act.

Princeton Internal Medicine and Geriatrics used Compliancy’s Group’s HIPAA methodology and The Guard compliance tracking software to ensure that all requirements of the HIPAA Privacy Rule, Security Rule, Omnibus Rule, and Breach Notification Rule were satisfied and patients’ personal and protected health information is properly safeguarded and patient privacy is assured.

Princeton Internal Medicine and Geriatrics is 100% committed to safeguarding patient health information. The practice sought assistance from Compliancy Group to ensure all requirements of HIPAA had been met, policies and procedures were fully compliant, and risks to the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of protected health information had been identified and reduced to a reasonable and appropriate level. “Working with the Compliancy Group and their expert coaches helped our office fulfill our regulatory obligations. Following their proven system, allowed us to lift the burden of regulatory compliance off our shoulders and get back to doing what we love, caring for our patients as if they are family,” said Princeton Internal Medicine and Geriatrics.

After completing the Compliancy’ Groups proprietary Six Stage Implementation Program and conducting a comprehensive risk analysis and remediation process, Princeton Internal Medicine and Geriatrics’ good faith effort toward HIPAA compliance was verified by Compliancy Group’s HIPAA compliance experts and the healthcare provider was awarded the HIPAA Seal of Compliance.

The HIPAA Seal of Compliance demonstrates to patients and vendors that Princeton Internal Medicine and Geriatrics is committed to complying with federal healthcare regulations and protecting patient privacy.
