Online Computers Achieves HIPAA Compliance with Compliancy Group.

Online Computers has demonstrated compliance with federal HIPAA regulation by completing Compliancy Group's proprietary HIPAA compliance methodology.


WHIPPANY, NJ – January 21, 2019 – Online Computers is pleased to announce that it has achieved compliance with the federally mandated standards of the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) through the use of Compliancy Group's proprietary HIPAA methodology, The Guard® compliance tracking software, and HIPAA Seal of Compliance®.

HIPAA is made up of a set of regulatory standards governing the security, privacy, and integrity of sensitive health care data, called protected health information (PHI). PHI is any demographic health care-related information that can be used to identify a patient. If vendors who service health care clients come into contact with PHI in any way, those vendors must be HIPAA compliant.

Online Computers has completed Compliancy Group's Six Stage Implementation Program, adhering to the necessary regulatory standards outlined in the HIPAA Privacy Rule, HIPAA Security Rule, HIPAA Breach Notification Rule, HIPAA Omnibus Rule, and HITECH. These standards have been heavily vetted against the letter of the law and meet federal NIST requirements. Online Computers' good faith effort toward HIPAA compliance through the use of The Guard has been verified by the HIPAA subject matter experts and Compliance Coaches at Compliancy Group.

The HIPAA Seal of Compliance is issued to organizations that have implemented an effective HIPAA compliance program through the use of The Guard, Compliancy Group's proprietary compliance tracking solution.

Online Computers has completed the Compliancy Group Implementation Program under the guidance of Compliancy Group's team of expert Compliance Coaches®. The important intersection between HIPAA compliance and data security is often lost on IT providers working in the health care space. Clients are becoming more aware of the requirements of HIPAA compliance--and forward-thinking providers like Online Computers, LCC choose the HIPAA Seal of Compliance to differentiate their services.

"We are all very excited to have completed the thorough process of becoming HIPAA compliant," said Gregory Kisver, Vice President of Consulting and Applications at Online Computers, "Our partnership with Compliancy Group will greatly benefit our current and future clients. We will ensure that both their business and I.T. practices are adhering to HIPAA regulations and standards."
