New Philadelphia, OH-based TeleVine Therapy has been independently verified as having implemented an effective HIPAA compliance program.

TeleVine Therapy is an award-winning provider of speech and language therapy services to individuals in Ohio, Pennsylvania, and surrounding communities and school districts. The company was established in September 2014 by speech-language pathologist Tara Vining and provides a range of services including speech-language therapy, occupational therapy, physical therapy, and orofacial myofunctional therapy to clients of all ages.

TeleVine Therapy is a HIPAA-covered entity and is therefore required to meet the federally mandated standards of the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA). To ensure that the company and its staff were fully compliant with the requirements of the HITECH Act and the HIPAA Privacy, Security, Breach Notification, and Omnibus Rules, TeleVine Therapy partnered with Compliancy Group.

TeleVine Therapy adopted Compliancy Group’s proprietary 6-Stage HIPAA Risk Analysis and remediation process and tracked progress using Compliancy Group’s compliance tracking software solution – The Guard. After completing that process, Compliancy Group’s HIPAA subject matter experts assessed TeleVine Therapy’s good faith effort toward HIPAA compliance.

The company was found to have identified and addressed risks and vulnerabilities to the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of patients’ protected health information and had implemented an effective HIPAA compliance program.

TeleVine Therapy was awarded the HIPAA Seal of Compliance, which demonstrates TeleVine Therapy’s commitment to patient privacy and data security and helps the company differentiate its services.
