Helping companies remain HIPAA compliant through proven solutions for securely collecting, transferring and storing valuable health data.
Safeguard Your Patient Records
What is HIPAA Compliance?
The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) of 1996 was introduced to safeguard electronic protected health information (ePHI). HIPAA seeks to ensure sensitive patient information is stored, transferred, accessed, and processed securely and protected from reaching the wrong people.
Companies that handle PHI need to have the essential physical, network, and security measures in place to attain HIPAA compliance. Entities that provide operations, treatment, payments, in healthcare or any associates that offer support or have access to patient information, must meet this criteria.
Avoid Penalties and Violations
With noncompliance penalties becoming harder to overcome, every business that works with and stores PHI runs a risk. We provide comprehensive HIPAA compliance services to keep your healthcare data protected, safe, and compliant. We work with your organization to implement HIPAA solutions and policies.

- Healthcare Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA), 1996
- The Privacy Rule, 2000
- The Security Rule, 2003
- The HIPAA Enforcement Rule, 2006
- The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act, 2009

Concerned companies must follow all or some of these rules to be HIPAA compliant.
