RevoluIT Confirmed as HIPAA Compliant by Compliancy Group

RevoluIT, a Frankfort, IL-based IT and small business consulting firm serving the healthcare industry, has been confirmed as having taken all the necessary steps to comply with the requirements of the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA).

IT service providers are classed as business associates under HIPAA and are required to implement safeguards to ensure the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of any PHI they encounter and must have policies and procedures to ensure compliance with the HIPAA Rules.

RevoluIT has over 20-years’ experience in the technology and healthcare industries and had implemented a HIPAA compliance program; however, to confirm that all requirements of the HIPAA rules had been satisfied, RevoluIT partnered with Compliancy Group.

Using Compliancy Group’s proven HIPAA compliance risk analysis and remediation process and its  proprietary compliance tracking software solution, RevoluIT was able to demonstrate the company had implemented an effective HIPAA compliance program and is adhering to the necessary regulatory standards outlined in the HIPAA Privacy Rule, Security Rule, Breach Notification Rule, Omnibus Rule, and the HITECH Act.

Compliancy Group’s HIPAA compliance subject matter experts assessed RevoluIT’s good faith effort toward HIPAA compliance and awarded the company its HIPAA Seal of Compliance. The HIPAA Seal of Compliance confirms to current and future clients that RevoluIT is committed to privacy and security and is a HIPAA-compliant partner, helping the company to differentiate its services.
