NEW YORK, Dec. 9, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Adstream, a global leader in advertising technology and services, announced today that it has achieved compliance with the federally mandated standards of the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) through the use of Compliancy Group's proprietary HIPAA methodology, The Guard® compliance tracking software, and the HIPAA Seal of Compliance®.
HIPAA is made up of a set of regulatory standards governing the security, privacy, and integrity of sensitive health care data called protected health information (PHI). PHI is any demographic health care-related information that can be used to identify a patient. If vendors who service healthcare clients come into contact with PHI in any way, those vendors must be HIPAA compliant.
"Adstream's goal to become HIPAA compliant has now been achieved and will allow us to expand our work within the healthcare industry and assist more clients that might handle PHI as part of a health and wellness business," said Mark Smith, NA Sales General Manager of Adstream. "Now, US healthcare institutions can store advertisements and related creative assets and data in Adstream and be assured of patient safety and security."
Adstream completed Compliancy Group's Six Stage Implementation Program, adhering to the necessary regulatory standards outlined in the HIPAA Privacy Rule, HIPAA Security Rule, HIPAA Breach Notification Rule, HIPAA Omnibus Rule, and HITECH. These standards have been heavily vetted against the letter of the law and meet federal NIST requirements.
Adstream's good faith effort toward HIPAA compliance through the use of The Guard has been verified by the HIPAA subject matter experts and Compliance Coaches® at Compliancy Group. HIPAA certification bolsters Adstream's standing as an industry leader in digital asset management.
"We take the protection of client data very seriously at Adstream and becoming HIPAA compliant is just one example of this," continued Smith. "HIPAA certification also demonstrates Adstream's commitment to understanding and addressing the needs of each of its clients."
The HIPAA Seal of Compliance is issued to organizations that have implemented an effective HIPAA compliance program through the use of The Guard, Compliancy Group's proprietary compliance tracking solution.
"Compliancy Group was a huge help in becoming HIPAA certified, and their services will be a big part of our work with healthcare clients down the road," Smith concluded.
Clients and patients are becoming more aware of the requirements of HIPAA compliance and how the regulation protects their personal information. Forward-thinking providers like Adstream choose the HIPAA Seal of Compliance to differentiate their services.
