Compliancy Group has announced that Safe Partner Inc. has demonstrated it has implemented an effective HIPAA compliance program and has successfully completed its proprietary 6-stage HIPAA risk analysis and remediation process.
Safe Partner Inc. is a Belmont, CA-based boutique software development and consulting company that provides a full range of software services, from design to development, implementation, and ongoing customer support. The company was formed in 1995 and works with clients in a wide range of industry sectors, including healthcare. Some of the software solutions developed by the company interact with healthcare data, which means the company is classed as a business associate and must comply with HIPAA Rules.
To ensure that no aspect of HIPAA compliance was missed, Safe Partner Inc sought assistance from Compliancy Group. Assisted by the company’s compliance coaches and using the firm’s HIPAA compliance tracking software solution, The Guard, Safe Partner Inc was able to demonstrate its HIPAA compliance program covered all aspects of the HIPAA Privacy, Security, Omnibus, and Breach Notification Rules. The company also conducted a comprehensive risk analysis to identify all potential risks to the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of protected health information, and ensured risks were effectively mitigated in accordance with the requirements of the HIPAA Security Rule.
After demonstrating to Compliancy Group that its policies and procedures met the minimum standards required by HIPAA, the company’s good faith effort toward HIPAA compliance was recognized and the company was awarded the Compliancy Group HIPAA Seal of Compliance.
The HIPAA Seal of Compliance helps the company differentiate its services and demonstrates to current and future clients that Safe Partner Inc. is committed to ensuring the privacy and security of any healthcare data provided to the company or accessible through its software solutions.
