Aegify and PolicyMedical Announce New Partnership to Deliver Critical HIPAA Compliance and Policy Management Solutions to the healthcare community
Provider of Healthcare Policy and Procedure Management solutions announces New Partnership with leading provider of continuous security, risk and compliance management solutions.
Toronto, Canada April 6th, 2015, PolicyMedical, delivers policy procedure and guideline management solutions for the healthcare industry. Today they announced a new initiative and partnership to provide HIPAA Meaningful Use, security and compliance solutions to the healthcare industry.
Aegify Inc. (www.aegify.com) is a world-leading provider of Cloud-based software-as-a-service (SaaS) solutions for business security monitoring, risk and compliance management. Aegify has been deployed from small businesses to large enterprises and has won multiple awards for technology and business innovations.
With increasing regulatory requirements and increased pressure to prevent security attacks, healthcare providers are understandably challenged to establish optimal frameworks to address these growing demands. The final Omnibus Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) rule includes new provisions that, if breached, could result in significant fines and penalties for healthcare providers and their business associates. Putting the best frameworks in place to address these demands are becoming strategic imperatives of all healthcare organizations.
“Healthcare provider’s need a comprehensive solution to address their compliance requirements at a reasonable cost” said Saud Juman, CEO of PolicyMedical. “Policy management plays a key role in setting your compliance framework. Healthcare providers are challenged to avoid potentially devastating breaches because the solutions available today are focused on their respective areas only. There are natural synergies between the solutions we provide and those brought by Aegify”
The partnership will allow PolicyMedical to further extend its GRC solutions by offering Aegify’s Security and Risk Protection Dashboard, which provides continuous monitoring and unlimited reporting to support HIPAA Omnibus compliance through use of an online cloud based tool. The solution will also provide a comprehensive utility to easily manage all of their Business Associate Agreements. Future plans include the incorporation of Aegify’s extensive database of HIPPA policies and integration to the PolicyMedical Contract Manager solution.
“More and more pressure is being applied to healthcare organizations to meet and maintain HIPAA and Meaningful Use requirements and to protect healthcare data. Policy plays a big role in how an organization addresses these issues and we are excited to partner with PolicyMedical’s common stakeholders to assist in executing and implementing these processes,” said Anupam Sahai, President and Co-Founder of Aegify.
The companies plan to introduce the offerings at the upcoming HCCA 2015 National Conference, April 19-22, in Orlando, CA.
