AssurX Announces Corporate-Wide HIPAA Compliance
Morgan Hill, CA – November 2, 2017 – AssurX, Inc., a leading provider of enterprise quality management and regulatory compliance software, today announced company-wide compliance with the Health Insurance Portability & Accountability Act (HIPAA) Security Rule. AssurX continues to affirm its commitment to protect customers’ electronic information.
The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability (HIPAA) Security Rule standard sets guidelines for protecting individual electronic protected health information (ePHI). The ePHI that an organization manages, or has access to, must be protected by appropriate administrative, physical and technical controls and safeguards.
AssurX performed rigorous risk assessments and implemented comprehensive controls to safeguard endpoint security, physical security and encryption of customer data (cloud-based OnDemand solution).
Sustaining HIPAA compliance makes it possible for any company that must comply with HIPAA regulations to enter confidently into a business associate agreement (BAA) with AssurX to assure all parties meet the requirements of HIPAA.
AssurX uses the powerful built-in capabilities of its own QMS platform to manage all HIPAA processes that an auditor would need to validate that all necessary data protection processes are in place.
“AssurX’s HIPAA initiative should instill confidence in our current and potential customers that we place extremely high priority on the protection of their data and information,” said Tamar June, CEO of AssurX. “AssurX’s implementation of HIPAA controls and required training for all employees across the organization relevant to their level of involvement with ePHI further validates our corporate obligation to safeguard electronic assets. We require all employees to re-train every two years in HIPAA compliance, in addition to ongoing cybersecurity training.”
AssurX, Inc., provides regulated organizations with a configurable Quality Management System (QMS) that improves quality and compliance, streamlines workflow and controls risk. With a choice of OnDemand or OnPremise software delivery options, AssurX’s flexible, integrated system automates quality and compliance processes so issues can be centrally managed. AssurX spans across every department in the enterprise, encompassing the entire product lifecycle, and providing a comprehensive quality management software solution for highly regulated and ISO compliant manufacturers.
