SALT LAKE CITY, Oct. 15, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- SecurityMetrics, the leader in data risk mitigation and compliance services, today announced the release of its Guided HIPAA Compliance program designed to enable office managers nationwide to pragmatically achieve compliance through the identification and remediation of vulnerabilities that may endanger patient EPHI (Electronic Protected Health Information).
In SecurityMetrics Guided HIPAA Compliance program, covered entities are personally led through preparation and achievement of HIPAA privacy and security rule compliance. The program is strongly based upon a consultative approach in which offices are provided a guided risk analysis, prioritized risk mitigation plan, training, documentation, and expert support to implement and validate HIPAA compliance. Organizations are presented with physical and website HIPAA compliance certificates upon compliance validation.
"Our assisted and prioritized approach helps offices reach HIPAA compliance without needing an inside expert," said SecurityMetrics VP of Business Operations, Russell Stay. "Using our plan, healthcare entities can easily achieve compliance and reduce the chance of compromise by quickly and accurately addressing privacy and security issues."
In addition to Guided HIPAA Compliance, SecurityMetrics also offers vulnerability scanning, penetration testing, and liability reduction programs to reduce healthcare organizational scope and prevent theft of EPHI.
