Manage suspected privacy breaches, facilitate investigations

Compliance 360, a provider of Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) solutions for enterprise governance, risk management and compliance (eGRC) has announced the availability of the Compliance 360 HITECH Privacy Breach Management Solution.

This new solution from Compliance 360 is used by healthcare providers and health insurance companies as their system of record for managing suspected privacy breaches, facilitating investigations, completing timely notifications of affected parties and maintaining an audit-ready state as required by the Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health (HITECH) Act passed as part of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (ARRA).

The privacy breach management regulations in the HITECH Act create significant new compliance risks for healthcare providers, health plans and their business associates that have access to protected health information (PHI) data.

Steve McGraw, president and CEO of Compliance 360, said: “Faced with increasing compliance risks created by the HITECH Act, and a clear need among healthcare providers and health plans to mitigate these risks, we’ve mobilised to quickly bring this new solution to the market.”
