Shenandoah Valley IT Achieves HIPAA Compliance


Categories: Cybersecurity, HIPAA, Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act, Compliance,

In order to provide HIPAA compliant IT services, Shenandoah Valley IT has demonstrated compliance with federal HIPAA regulation by completing proprietary HIPAA compliance methodology.

Press Release:
We are pleased to announce that our business has achieved compliance with the federally mandated standards of the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) through the use of proprietary HIPAA methodology. This means we can provide HIPAA compliant IT services to covered entities.

HIPAA is made up of a set of regulatory standards governing the security, privacy, and integrity of sensitive health care data, called protected health information (PHI). PHI is any demographic health care-related information that can be used to identify a patient. If vendors who service health care clients come into contact with PHI in any way, those vendors must be HIPAA compliant. 

In order to provide HIPAA compliant IT services, our whole team has completed a six stage implementation program, adhering to the necessary regulatory standards outlined in the HIPAA Privacy Rule, HIPAA Security Rule, HIPAA Breach Notification Rule, HIPAA Omnibus Rule, and HITECH. These standards have been heavily vetted against the letter of the law and meet federal NIST requirements. Our good faith efforts toward HIPAA compliance has been verified by HIPAA subject matter experts and compliance coaches.

We have completed an implementation program under the guidance of a team of expert compliance coaches. The important intersection between HIPAA compliance and data security is often lost on IT providers working in the healthcare space. Clients are becoming more aware of the requirements of HIPAA compliance--and forward-thinking providers like Shenandoah Valley IT choose to be compliant to differentiate our HIPAA compliant IT services.
