ATLANTA (August 23, 2017)—The van Halem Group, a division of VGM Group, Inc. (vHG), has finalized an agreement with HIPAAwise to exclusively offer its online HIPAA Compliance Program application to health care providers in the post-acute care market.
The online application creates a comprehensive dashboard for providers to manage their HIPAA compliance program. This includes policies and procedures, security and risk assessment, business associate management, an employee awareness program, location and inventory tracking, and breach management. In the event of an OCR audit, the application includes an OCR desk audit and onsite audit reports as well as audit support from The van Halem Group.
“We have always encouraged providers to be proactive and avoid compliance issues,” said Wayne van Halem, president of The van Halem Group. “The HIPAAwise solution is a simple, efficient, comprehensive and affordable solution that helps do just that. It complements the services we already offer very nicely.”
With this partnership, providers get access to their own online HIPAAwise dashboard, an implementation consultant from The van Halem Group and on-going support.
“The van Halem Group is among the industry’s foremost compliance consultancies, and this partnership was a logical choice for us to provide this tool and offer the necessary support required to implement and maintain a successful HIPAA compliance program,” said HIPAAwise founder, Tom Meadows, who developed the application.
“Hardly a week goes by now where you do not read about a company facing millions of dollars in fines and penalties for HIPAA violations that could have been avoided,” stated van Halem. “We’re very excited to offer this solution to the post-acute care market, which is particularly vulnerable.”
