Compliancy Group certified that Nanodropper Inc., a medical device firm, has put in place an appropriate HIPAA compliance program and has exhibited compliance with the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) Security, Privacy, Omnibus, and Breach Notification Rules.
Nanodropper read about a ProPublica article that revealed drug firms were producing eyedrop bottles that give eye drops that contain more fluid than a person’s eye could hold, which brings about substantial waste and excessive fees for patients. Nanodropper designed the first patient-focused adaptor that fits eyedrop bottles and lessens by over 60% the volume of oversized eyedrops.
The company is named after the Nanodropper device, which is a Class I medical gadget listed with the FDA. It helps lessen the price and waste and aids to cut down potential unwanted effects of vision-saving cures. Besides this flagship item, Nanodropper gives value-based solutions to tighten health equity gaps at the same time promotes patient learning and advocacy.
As a medical device manufacturer, Nanodropper gets access to protected health information (PHI). The HIPAA requires an entity with access to identifiable healthcare information to comply with the HIPAA Rules and must implement safeguards to ensure the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of identifiable protected health information.
To ensure the full HIPAA compliance of the company, Nanodropper asked Compliancy Group for assistance. Nanodropper utilized Compliancy Group’s exclusive HIPAA compliance tracking software called The Guard, and finished its 6-stage risk analysis and remediation program, and after that Nanodropper received the HIPAA Seal of Compliance award. This award proves Nanodropper’s dedication to HIPAA compliance and highlights the distinctive services of the company.
CEO of Nanodropper Allisa Song stated that as the company brand is recognized by more patients, the company wishes their patients to know that they take their patients’ privacy seriously and believe this ought to be the standard for any person engaged in healthcare. Persons with ailments like glaucoma could save hundreds of dollars every year just by utilizing the Nanodropper with their recommended eyedrop medicine. Buying the company’s product does not demand a lot, if any medical data, but for those that provide their PHI, they can be confident that the company’s leading priority is securing their information as much as possible.
