RENO, Nev., Aug. 16, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- CAEK, Inc., a female-founded Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) company focusing on compliance-related software for the healthcare industry, today announced that it has entered into an exclusive agreement with Henry Schein Dental, a division of Henry Schein, Inc. (Nasdaq: HSIC), the world's largest provider of health care products and services to office-based dental, animal health and medical practitioners, to sell its uniquely designed HIPAA software, LayerCompliance®.
LayerCompliance is an affordable, full-featured cloud-based tool designed to help healthcare practitioners navigate the requirements of the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA), a federal law that provides privacy and security standards to protect patients' health information. LayerCompliance assists users with the management of their data security program through an online dashboard and tools that help streamline the process.
"Henry Schein is proud to team up with CAEK and offer more solutions to help clinicians address the growing issue of meeting federal HIPAA regulations in order to protect patients' personal data," said Eric Nuss, Director of Business Solutions, Henry Schein Dental. "Our customers depend upon Henry Schein to continually deliver innovative technologies that enhance the efficiency of their practice and we believe that LayerCompliance will help provide that efficiency."
The announcement of the exclusive distribution agreement highlights CAEK's commitment to providing innovative solutions and resources for healthcare practitioners, particularly independent clinicians.
"We are excited to work with Henry Schein because of their dedication in assisting office-based dental practitioners, of which Henry Schein has access to approximately 90% in the United states," said Katie Lay, CEO of CAEK, Inc. "HIPAA regulations are designed to protect patients' personal health information, which is a huge responsibility for any organization, but especially for independently owned clinics that don't have the time, tools or resources."
With LayerCompliance, CAEK aims to help clinicians modernize the regulatory compliance process by providing users with online access to the interactive elements which help guide dental practices through the requirements of the HIPAA Security Rule including a risk analysis, tailored policies and procedures, and the ability to easily document compliance activities, all at an affordable price.
"Clinicians shouldn't be left with paper checklists or manual binders to meet regulations for protecting electronic patient data," said Lay. "Technology and innovation are critical for the modern healthcare practice. Providers need smart, dynamic resources, and we're here to provide those."
