As part of their commitment to be “The HIPAA Compliance Platform for Healthcare Organizations,” Medcurity has released Customizable Security Policies and Procedures and Business Associate Management. These new tools expand Medcurity’s intuitive and comprehensive approach for HIPAA compliance.
Much like Turbo Tax, Medcurity walks organizations through a questionnaire to populate key aspects of each policy. The final policies automatically reflect their specific workflows and environment, including branding.
These tightly integrated Security policies can be accessed by all employees via a private link. Proactive policy management reminders alert subscribers to upcoming review dates, supporting updated and accurate policies.
And, these policies can be linked directly to the annual Medcurity Security Risk Analysis and associated remediation activities, supporting a cohesive compliance program.
Business Associate Agreements are managed in one place, allowing oversight of the entire BAA process. Users customize the BAA to reflect any organization specific requirements and the BAA is sent to the Business Associate for electronic signature. Medcurity subscribers remain current with proactive reminders and dashboards to manage all Business Associates.
“Healthcare organizations can greatly reduce their risk and protect their patients’ information, by conducting a Security Risk Analysis, creating and following HIPAA Policies and Procedures, and executing HIPAA-compliant Business Associate Agreements,” said Joe Gellatly, Medcurity CEO.
“Medcurity takes this seriously and wants to provide easy to use, comprehensive, and cost-effective tools to allow providers and their staff to focus on providing excellent patient care.”
