Compliancy Group has announced that The Speech Paradigm LLC has implemented an effective HIPAA compliance program and has demonstrated compliance with the standards of the HIPAA Privacy, Security, Breach Notification, and Omnibus Rules.
Alexandria & Shawn Guthreau founded The Speech Paradigm to provide effective in-home language therapy sessions for children in New Jersey to make a significant difference in their lives. Alexandria & Shawn have firsthand experience raising a child with autism spectrum disorder who is non-verbal, and discovered there were very few specialists in the New Jersey area that could provide language therapy.
As a provider of language therapy, The Speech Paradigm is required to comply with Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act Rules and to ensure full compliance, assistance was sought from Compliancy Group.
Compliancy Group has developed a tried and tested HIPAA compliance methodology that HIPAA-covered entities and their business associates can follow to ensure all requirements of the HIPAA Rules are satisfied. Clients can follow this methodology to simplify HIPAA compliance, and track their progress using Compliancy Group’s proprietary software solution – The Guard.
“Working with Compliancy Group has turned managing HIPAA into a seamless process for us. We have always questioned our interpretation of the regulations. The Compliance Group is the best in the business and helped us systematize the process and made it easy to understand. That makes sure our entire organization has a clear understanding of what we need to do in order to protect our patient’s information. It has also saved us a lot of time that we can now dedicate to our patients.”
After successfully completing Compliancy Group’s proprietary 6-Stage HIPAA risk analysis and remediation process, Compliancy Group’s HIPAA subject matter experts assessed The Speech Paradigm’s good faith effort to achieve HIPAA compliance and awarded the practice the HIPAA Seal of Compliance. The HIPAA Seal of Compliance demonstrates The Speech Paradigm’s commitment to ensuring the privacy and security of patient data and helps The Speech Paradigm differentiate their services.
“Our commitment to protecting our patients’ information is one of the ways we show our dedication to our patients,” said Alexandria Guthreau. “We could never guarantee the high level of compliance we currently have without the expertise the Compliancy Group provides. They have helped us ensure that we have no gaps in our organization.”
