Santa Clara, Calif., April 22, 2016 — In light of new federal security and privacy audits, Caspio, Inc. (caspio.com) continues to serve as a strategic technology partner for healthcare organizations relying on its HIPAA-compliant application platform.
Last month, the Department of Health and Human Services’ Office for Civil Rights (OCR) announced the launch of a new round of audits to more closely monitor compliance with the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA).
The stakes are high for healthcare providers and their associates to get prepared for an audit by ensuring they have up-to-date procedures and contracts in place to meet the requirements of the HIPAA Data Privacy, Security and Breach Notification Rules – or potentially face fines or settlement agreements for noncompliance.
Phase 2 of the HIPAA Audit Program is officially underway, and the OCR has already started sending out letters to collect the contact information of covered entities and business associates.
Caspio has offered a HIPAA edition of its popular low-code application platform since 2014, providing a Business Associate Agreement (BAA) along with special infrastructure, features and safeguards to ensure HIPAA compliance.
Unique capabilities of the Caspio HIPAA Edition:
“The healthcare industry is facing increasing pressure and scrutiny, and Caspio is prepared to support our customers as a trusted technology partner,” said Frank Zamani, Founder and CEO of Caspio. “We have invested a substantial amount of time and resources to ensure our platform and operations are HIPAA compliant and we are proud to be the leading HIPAA-compliant platform meeting this demand across the healthcare industry.”
