Curogram, a texting and telemedicine platform provider, has exhibited its dedication to comply with the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) Regulations. Compliancy Group has confirmed Curogram to have executed an efficient HIPAA compliance system.
Curogram’s patient-focused healthcare messaging system helps improve the front desks of medical offices by automating time-consuming work, simplifying processes, enhancing communication, and building efficiencies that help companies, employees, and patients.
The text messaging platform vendors that are employed to create, keep, or send protected health information (PHI) are regarded as business associates under HIPAA and are consequently required to abide by specific terms of the HIPAA Rules and need to make sure safety measures are enforced to protect the integrity, availability, and confidentiality of protected health information (PHI).
HIPAA-covered entities that utilize these platforms are responsible for ensuring that any PHI given to these platform vendors or is made available to them by using their platform is secured all the time and should sign business associate agreements with the platform vendor.
Curogram is dedicated to HIPAA compliance and later worked with Compliancy Group to make sure that the organization and its system are completely compliant with all relevant facets of the HIPAA Security Rule, Privacy Rule, Omnibus Rule, Breach Notification Rule, and the HITECH Act.
Curogram used Compliancy Group’s HIPAA compliance system and monitored its status utilizing Compliancy Group’s exclusive HIPAA compliance software tool called The Guard. Curogram effectively completed the 6-stage HIPAA risk analysis and remediation program of Compliancy Group. Compliancy Group’s HIPAA experts assessed Curogram’s HIPAA compliance program.
Compliancy Group has certified that Curogram has put in place an efficient HIPAA compliance system, is completely following the HIPAA Regulations, and is dedicated to HIPAA compliance.
Curogram received the HIPAA Seal of Compliance award, which shows to present and potential clients that it has carried out an efficient HIPAA compliance program and is fully committed to protecting the privacy and security of any PHI provided, obtained, stored, or sent by means of its platform.
Curogram COO, Michael Hsu mentioned that getting the Seal of Compliance awarded by Compliancy Group shows the company’s dedication to HIPAA compliance. Besides giving safe patient communications choices such as 2-way texting, electronic appointment alerts, and telemedicine services, the company wants to give the healthcare sector an example.
