Neurology MIND Care PLLC Receives Seal of HIPAA Compliance

Private practice Neurology MIND Care PLLC based in Merrick, NY offers cognitive behavioral neurology and dementia consultation services. Compliancy Group recently certified Neurology MIND Care as having an effective HIPAA compliance program.

Because Neurology MIND Care provides healthcare services that naturally require access to patients’ identifiable protected health information (PHI), it must, therefore, be compliant with the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) and its Security, Privacy, Breach Notification, and Omnibus Regulations. To make sure it is fully compliant with those regulations and requirements, and to show present and prospective patients that their sensitive healthcare information is appropriately secured, Neurology MIND Care sought the help of Compliancy Group.

Owner of Neurology MIND Care PLLC, Mariel B. Deutsch, MD, stated that the organization takes patient privacy very seriously and makes an effort to provide services of the highest standards to all patients. By showing its dedication to keeping patient data secure, it is hoped that patients and their family members will feel a lot more at ease providing their mental and behavioral health issues, and understanding their privacy will be secured.

Compliancy Group provides a HIPAA compliance system that is confirmed to enable compliance with the specifications of the HIPAA guidelines and HITECH Act simple for HIPAA-covered entities. Compliancy Group has an exclusive HIPAA compliance software program called The Guard to help HIPAA-covered entities in their process to achieve compliance, which includes performing a 6-stage risk analysis and remediation procedure to deal with all threats and vulnerabilities to electronic protected health information (ePHI).

After finishing that procedure, Neurology MIND Care was certified by the HIPAA-subject matter specialists of Compliancy Group that it is in compliance with the specifications of HIPAA and the HITECH Act and it has put in place an efficient HIPAA compliance program. Compliancy Group awarded to Neurology MIND Care the HIPAA Seal of Compliance, which shows its dedication to protecting the privacy and safety of healthcare information and meeting its regulatory demands as per HIPAA.
