Statewide Collection Service Receives HIPAA Seal of Compliance

Statewide Collection Service is a company providing a full-service accounts receivable management and risk assessment to the healthcare sector. The company recently concluded the Compliancy Group’s Six Stage implementation process and obtained its HIPAA Seal of Compliance.

Companies providing services or products to healthcare organizations and need access to patient data have to abide by the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) Rules. The HIPAA ensures that the protected health information (PHI) of patients are secured and stays private and confidential all the time.

Statewide Collection Service was established in 1981. It is a reputable accounts receivable management company and is dedicated to fostering positive relationships with customers and maintaining the privacy and confidentiality of data provided.

Statewide Collection Service wanted to show its compliance with all government mandated standards and its possession of the physical, technical, and administrative controls that make sure each patient identifier is protected and safe against unauthorized access.

The Compliancy Group helped Statewide Collection Service with its HIPAA compliance journey. The Compliancy Group’s compliance tracking software called TheGuard tracked its progress all the way to compliance while the compliance coaches provided needed assistance.

The Compliancy Group methodology entails a risk assessment then a remediation process in six stages. When the remediation process is finished, all risks that could affect the confidentiality, availability and integrity of ePHI are managed and minimized to a good and acceptable level.

In order to achieve the Seal of Compliance, it is required for companies to comply with the requirements set by the HIPAA Privacy Rule, HIPAA Breach Notification Rule, HIPAA Security Rule, HIPAA Omnibus Rule, and the HITECH Act to standards greatly vetted against federal regulations and that satisfy NIST specifications.

By using the TheGuard and with the help of Compliancy Group’s coaches, Statewide Collection Service is verified to have the required safeguards to fully protect all provided patient information.
