Compliancy Group made an announcement that health tech start-up BIONWORKS has attained compliance with the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) requirements.
BIONWORKS develops an advanced ML-driven enterprise mobility software program for the healthcare sector. The leading healthcare program of the company is called Healthplug and it’s an all-inclusive mobile-first workflow-driven business mobility program that speeds up the usage of the electronic medical record, enhances personnel collaboration, changes patient involvement, and allows process automation in hospitals.
Software program developers that deal with electronic protected health information (ePHI) are classified as business associates under HIPAA and should therefore make sure that their software programs integrate safety measures to protect the integrity, availability, and confidentiality of ePHI. The programs need to integrate access controls to make sure that just authorized people could access personal and health information together with mechanisms to manage ePHI sharing.
BIONWORKS designed its software program with data integrity, security and privacy in mind. By working with Compliancy Group, it has enforced all required standards of the HIPAA Rules such as the capability to perform self-audits, make remediation plans, and systems for business associate management and incident administration. The company has additionally established complete policies and procedures, training materials for employees, and complete product documentation.
After concluding the 6-stage HIPAA risk analysis and remediation process of Compliancy Group, HIPAA compliance specialists evaluated the honest work of BIONWORKS toward HIPAA compliance and granted it the HIPAA Seal of Compliance.
The HIPAA Seal of Compliance proves that BIONWORKS has put in place an efficient HIPAA compliance program and is absolutely dedicated to making certain that the firm and its software programs satisfy all standards of the HIPAA Rules.
BIONWORKS stated that it recognizes the fact that compliance is not a ‘set it and forget it’ exercise. HIPAA Rules are versatile standards that need to be implemented according to the size of the organization and its nature. With regular support from Compliancy Group, BIONWORKS is confident that it could address the flexibility.
