Veristream has been confirmed by Compliancy Group as having implemented an effective HIPAA compliance program.
Veristream is the developer of a visitor management system called iVisitor, which is used by companies to centrally manage visitors and contractors. The company has also developed the BreezN cloud-based visitor management solution to provide customers with the highest level of security and privacy possible when managing their visitors.
As a provider of software-as-a-service (SaaS) solutions to healthcare organizations, it is essential for the company and its SaaS solutions to meet the minimum standards of privacy and security required by the HIPAA Security Rule, and for policies and procedures to be implemented to comply with the HIPAA Privacy Rule.
To ensure the company and its SaaS solutions are fully compliant with the provisions of the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act, Veristream partnered with Compliancy Group. Compliancy Group has developed a proprietary HIPAA compliance methodology that can be easily followed by healthcare organizations and their business associates to ensure compliance with the HIPAA Rules. Progress toward compliance is tracked using The Guard software solution.
Veristream adopted that process and completed Compliancy Group’s risk analysis and remediation program and its good faith effort towards HIPAA compliance was assessed by Compliancy Group’s HIPAA subject matter experts. After reviewing Veristream’s compliance efforts, Compliancy Group confirmed the company was compliant with the requirements of the HIPAA Privacy, Security, Omnibus, and Breach Notification Rules and the HITECH Act, and Veristream was awarded the HIPAA Seal of Compliance.
The HIPAA Seal of Compliance confirms to current and future healthcare customers that Veristream and its SaaS solutions are compliant with the HIPAA Rules and the company has implemented an effective program to ensure continued compliance.
“Providing strong security and data protection has always been the backbone of our visitor management solution. We are pleased to add a robust, HIPAA-compliant offering to our SaaS platform for the healthcare market”, said Matt Comstock, VP of Healthcare Solutions.
