The HIPAA Seal of Compliance
The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) enacted in 1996 mandates that organizations working in healthcare have an obligation to be HIPAA compliant. HIPAA compliance is a multifaceted issue that can be difficult to navigate, as such Compliancy Group developed a HIPAA compliance program that covers the full HIPAA regulation. Upon completion of the HIPAA compliance program, clients are eligible to receive the HIPAA Seal of ComplianceTM.
HIPAA Seal of Compliance HIPAA Verification
Although the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) does not offer or endorse HIPAA certifications, they do recognize third-party HIPAA verification tools. Compliancy Group’s HIPAA Seal of ComplianceTM, displayed on a client’s website or email signature, is clickable, redirecting to Compliancy Group’s website where an organization’s “good faith effort” towards HIPAA compliance is validated and verified.
Not only does the HIPAA Seal of Compliance verify an organization’s “good faith effort”, it also serves as a great differentiator. The presence of the HIPAA Seal of Compliance, on your website or email signature, proves to patients (clients) and prospective patients (clients) that you care about protecting their protected health information (PHI). They can be confident that when they choose your practice or firm, that you will do all that is necessary within the law, to protect their sensitive information.
