HIPAA Checklist to Help Healthcare Professionals Easily Navigate HIPAA Compliance
New technology platform positioned to help healthcare providers navigate HIPAA requirements and document HIPAA compliance procedures
SANTA MONICA, CA, UNITED STATES, March 16, 2017 /EINPresswire.com/ — PCIHIPAA recently introduced OfficeSafe™, a new technology platform to help medical and dental practices comply with stringent Payment Card Industry (PCI) and Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) regulations. Now just months after its launch, PCIHIPAA released OfficeSafe’s HIPAA Checklist, an online tool to give healthcare professionals a roadmap, and new level of confidence that they are taking the necessary steps to protect their offices, and stay current with HIPAA compliance requirements.
The release of the HIPAA Checklist, comes on the heels of an important announcement surrounding HIPAA compliance regulation. The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services’ Office for Civil Rights recently announced that random HIPAA audits are expected to continue throughout 2017 because of the rising number of claims that protected health information has been compromised. As the Office for Civil Rights has become more aggressive with HIPAA enforcement, large settlements have become widespread, and penalties for HIPAA noncompliance are now a recurring reality.
Through OfficeSafe’s HIPAA Checklist, customers can easily track, document, and store the Administrative, Technical, and Physical Safeguards to ensure compliance with HIPAA law.

“Our customers help drive our innovation. They asked for an easy, online tool to help understand and track HIPAA compliance requirements. We created OfficeSafe and The HIPAA Checklist based on their feedback,” said Jeff Broudy, CEO of PCIHIPAA. Broudy adds, “Many medical and dental practices don’t have the time and resources to adequately navigate HIPAA. This leads them susceptible to risks surrounding the protection of sensitive protected health information (PHI). We deliver easy and affordable solutions so healthcare professionals can focus on what they do best: treating patients.”
PCIHIPAA also released a series of Videos so practices can quickly understand how OfficeSafe and The HIPAA Checklist can help protect their practices.
