The Compliancy Group confirmed that South Texas Children’s Dentistry has an effective HIPAA Compliance program set up.
South Texas Children’s Dentistry already took action towards complying with the regulations of the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA). However, to ensure it did not miss any facet of HIPAA and stayed in compliance, South Texas Children’s Dentistry got support from Compliancy Group.
Compliancy Group has created a compliance tracking software program known as The Guard, which leads healthcare providers and business associates through the ins and outs of HIPAA compliance, addressing all requirement of the HIPAA Security, Privacy and Breach Notification Rules, the HITECH Act and the Omnibus Rules. The Compliancy Group’s coaches are always ready to help clients in developing their compliance plans, producing HIPAA-compliant policies, procedures, and adopting the best strategies.
After working with The Guard, clients go through the Compliancy Group’s 6-Stage HIPAA Risk Analysis and remediation process to identify and minimize risks to the integrity, confidentiality, and availability of protected health information (PHI). The Compliancy Group also evaluated their honest efforts toward achieving HIPAA compliance.
After evaluating the compliance program of South Texas Children’s Dentistry, Compliancy Group awarded the HIPAA Seal of Compliance to the dental practice. The HIPAA Seal of Compliance award proves to existing and potential patients that the dental practice is fully determined to adhere to the HIPAA rules and is doing all the necessary steps to make sure that it protects any generated, collected, processed, or transmitted sensitive information and secures the privacy of its patients.
