Speakap, a communication platform provider, announced recently that it has been certified as Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) compliant by Compliancy Group.
Speakap created a communications platform that allows healthcare companies to easily and effectively communicate with their frontline personnel, even when they have no quick access to computer systems. By using a mobile app, healthcare companies can keep in touch with deskless workers and converse with all the employees by means of a desktop version of the application. Businesses from a broad array of industries use the app; however, before the healthcare industry can use this communications solution, Speakap must ensure the full compliance of its platform, policies, and procedures with HIPAA Rules.
If using the platform to communicate ePHI, HIPAA categorizes Speakap as a business associate. Hence, Speakap needs to incorporate physical, technical and administrative safeguards into its solution and it must fulfill the requirements under HIPAA.
To make sure of the company’s full compliance, Speakap sought the help of Compliancy Group’s compliance coaches. In addition, the use of The Guard, the exclusive software solution of Compliancy Group, helped Speakap to successfully complete the 6-stage risk analysis and risk remediation process of Compliancy Group.
According to the Compliancy Group’s HIPAA specialists, Speakap’s good faith efforts successfully satisfied HIPAA compliance, and so the HIPAA Seal of Compliance has been granted. The HIPAA Seal of Compliance is a proof that Speakap has implemented safety measures, policies, and procedures and has designed an efficient HIPAA compliance program that meet the regulatory standards as required in the HIPAA Security Rule, HIPAA Privacy Rule, HIPAA Omnibus Rule, HIPAA Breach Notification Rule, and the HITECH Act.
Speakap CEO, Erwin Van Der Vlist stated that Speakap is committed to offer reliable and safe solutions that adhere to the high standards of HIPAA. The HIPAA compliant platform of Speakap gives the highest levels of trust and peace of mind to its clients. Its platforms are supported by exceptional measures that give industry-leading solutions.
