Colorado Springs, CO (October 16, 2013) — In an effort to provide HIPAA compliance reviews and assurance for healthcare providers and their business associates, Colorado Computer Support (CCS) is partnering with eGestalt Technologies, a leading provider of cloud-based software-as-a-service (SaaS) solutions for compliance management.
eGestalt’s flagship, award-winning product, Aegify is the world’s first, software-only solution for Integrated Security Monitoring and Compliance Management. It provides complete integration of the eGestalt compliance tool—SecureGRC—with new security-posture management capabilities using innovative, patent-pending, expert system technology to automatically map security vulnerabilities to compliance mandates.
The partnership with eGestalt will provide CCS the cloud-based products they need to ensure all their clients in the healthcare industry are HIPAA Compliant, and protected from security breaches that could cost them hefty fines or even their business.
“CCS is pleased to partner with eGestalt. Their on-demand delivery of integrated IT Security and Compliance Management Software will protect our clients from HIPAA security breaches and ensure their ongoing compliance,” says Blake Schwank, CEO of CCS.
The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) released the Final Omnibus Rule this year establishing a variety of new requirements. They are actively imposing civil money penalties for all violations of the HIPAA/HITECH Act. Previously, penalties were only applied in extreme cases. The Final Rule increases the fines for civil penalties and includes a tiered penalty structure that’s aligned with the nature and circumstance of the violation.
