Compliancy Group has confirmed that the secure mobile messaging solution provider, SendQuick, has demonstrated compliance with the federally mandated standards of the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA), and has been awarded the HIPAA Seal of Compliance.
SendQuick’s mobile messaging solutions, which include IT alerts & notifications, secure remote access via multi-factor authentication, business process automation, enterprise messaging broadcast, and automated call tree systems, have been adopted by corporations in more than 40 countries, including many Fortune 500 firms in the banking, finance, insurance, manufacturing, retail, government, education, and healthcare sectors.
Providers of software and communications solutions that come into contact with protected health information are classed as business associates under HIPAA. As such, they must ensure that their products incorporate safeguards to ensure the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of PHI and that they are fully compliant with all appropriate standards and implementation specifications of the HIPAA Rules.
To ensure full compliance with HIPAA and HITECH Act standards and implementation specifications, Singapore-based SendQuick Pte Ltd partnered with Compliancy Group and used the company’s proven HIPAA compliance methodology, which includes a 6-stage HIPAA risk analysis and remediation process. SendQuick was able to track progress on its compliance journey using Compliancy Group’s proprietary software solution – The Guard.
“We take the protection of our patients’ health information very seriously,” said SendQuick CEO, Mr. JS Wong. “Achieving HIPAA compliance was a top priority for us as it shows our professionalism and integrity as a business, and we are thrilled to have partnered with Compliancy Group to make it happen.”
After following Compliancy Group’s methodology, Compliancy Group’s HIPAA compliance subject matter experts assessed SendQuick’s good faith effort to achieve HIPAA compliance and confirmed the company had satisfied its obligations under the HIPAA Privacy Rule, HIPAA Security Rule, HIPAA Breach Notification Rule, HIPAA Omnibus Rule, and HITECH Act, and awarded SendQuick the HIPAA Seal of Compliance.
The HIPAA Seal of Compliance demonstrates to current and future healthcare clients that SendQuick has achieved HIPAA compliance, has implemented an effective HIPAA compliance program to ensure continued compliance, and is committed to ensuring the privacy and security of PHI.
“The Guard was instrumental in guiding us through the compliance process, and we now have the peace of mind that comes with knowing we are doing everything we can to protect our clients and their patients’ information,” said Mr. Wong. “Our commitment to protecting patient health information and our willingness to invest in the necessary resources to achieve compliance is a testament to our dedication to our customers and their patients. Organizations and businesses take HIPAA compliance seriously and aim to work with a trusted partner like SendQuick who has achieved HIPAA compliance in order to maintain compliance with HIPAA regulations.”
