The Troy, MI-based integrated financial services and business advisory firm Rehmann has been confirmed as having implemented an effective HIPAA compliance program and is fully compliant with all appropriate provisions of the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) Rules.

As a provider of accounting and assurance, business solutions and outsourcing, specialized consulting, and wealth management services for HIPAA-covered entities, Rehmann is classed as a business associate under HIPAA. To ensure compliance with the necessary regulatory standards of the HIPAA Privacy Rule, Security Rule, Breach Notification Rule, Omnibus Rule, and the HITECH Act, Rehmann partnered with Compliancy Group and used the company’s proven HIPAA methodology and proprietary software solution to track its progress on its journey toward HIPAA compliance.

After completing the program, which included a 6-stage risk analysis and remediation process, Compliancy Group assessed Rehmann and verified its good faith effort to achieve HIPAA compliance and awarded the company the “HIPAA Seal of Compliance.” The Seal of Compliance is issued to organizations that have implemented an effective HIPAA compliance program through use of Compliancy Group’s software solution – The Guard.

The HIPAA Seal of Compliance demonstrates to current and future clients that a company is committed to compliance with the HIPAA Rules and has implemented the policies, procedures, and technical solutions to safeguard the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of individuals’ protected health information.

“Showing clients that we understand and comply with HIPAA requirements and are qualified to handle PHI is a differentiator for the firm,” said Rehmann CEO Randy Rupp. “Exhibiting unwavering integrity is one of our core values because our internal and external clients trust us with the most confidential details of their business and personal lives.”
