Total HIPAA Compliance and Central Data Storage announce an agreement to market their company’s primary services to each other’s clients. This partnership gives medical and dental healthcare providers a comprehensive HIPAA compliant solution for off-site storage of patient and practice records, restoration of data, and implementation of HIPAA Rules.
“Most dental practices implemented HIPAA Privacy in 2003 when HIPAA first enforced requirements for safeguarding patients’ Protected Health Information (PHI). The law changed with the Omnibus 2013 requirements and many practices are no longer compliant,” said Jan Karn, President of Total HIPAA Compliance.
“The biggest gap in compliance for dental practices is implementing updated Privacy and Security Policies and Procedures, conducting a Risk Assessment, encrypting documents and emails that contain PHI, and most importantly, training their staff.” Karn continued.
“Since our services meet HIPAA requirements, we felt a partnership with Total HIPAA could expand knowledge of our off-site storage solution to additional market segments. Total HIPAA has a solution that is proven and well received in the marketplace for a wide variety of industries,” stated Ed Conklin, CEO of Central Data Storage. “This is an ideal fit so that both companies can expand into new markets,” Conklin added.
In addition to off-site storage, CDSMail provides security for emails on both the staff and patient end, regardless of desktop, tablet or mobile. There’s no need to make any significant changes to your current email provider, as CDSMail can be integrated with Gmail, Outlook, Yahoo! and Lotus Note.
“As more businesses move their data to the cloud, it is important to find a technology savvy company that is HIPAA compliant and can provide a reliable and cost-effective.”
