Partnership with eGestalt complements services with technology to help organizations assess, monitor and comply with regulations.
Belleville, Mich., – January, 20 2011 – With increased federal regulation and evolving technology, medical practices and covered entities are mandated to comply with higher security standards for electronic protected health information, such as medical records and patient billing. Recognizing these challenges, ATMP Solutions has announced critical services to help large health systems, insurance companies, home health agencies, long-term care facilities, medical billing companies, and physician practices assess their security risks and manage compliance with the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability (HIPAA) Act.
ATMP Solutions is a Michigan-based company with a proven model to guide physicians, medical clinics and health systems in meeting HIPAA standards and implementing effective management practices. In addition, a partnership with eGestalt enables clients to implement an automated compliance management solution called SecureGRC®.
“We help covered entities manage HIPAA Security Compliance in an ever-changing landscape. Our solutions reduce costs and time,” said Joe Dylewski, principal of ATMP Solutions, a certified HIPAA compliance organization.
The HIPAA Security Compliance Assessment is an accurate and thorough analysis of an organization’s current compliance status. This includes a deep examination of electronic medical record management and software. ATMP Solutions conducts a Risk Assessment and Gap Analysis and assists in developing a remediation plan that leads to compliance.
Technology provides another ingredient in the continuous process of compliance and monitoring. SecureGRC® provides a consolidated framework that quickly and cost-effectively enables governance, risk management and compliance.
The HITECH Act, adopted in 2009, builds on the privacy and security rules and criteria to further address risks. With the passage of the HITECH, additional emphasis was placed on the responsibility of healthcare entities that utilize Electronic Protected Health Information and their Business Associates to insure that the data is held safe and secure.
Refined regulations were specified in the Federal HITECT Act, including increased fines, enforcement and media exposure for breaches of patient and business information.
“Assessment and technology solutions help healthcare providers comply with meaningful use requirements and address one of the critical components that qualifies them for HITECH Act reimbursement funds. We recommend they partner with, knowledgeable, qualified and certified HIPAA specialists for best results,” said Dylewski.
