AIMA is pleased to announce we have been awarded the prestigious HIPAA Seal of Compliance. A verification standard for healthcare professionals, vendors, and IT professionals across the healthcare industry. The award is issued to organizations that have implemented an effective program in compliance with the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act.
HIPAA comprises a set of regulatory standards governing the security, privacy, and integrity of sensitive healthcare data called protected health information (PHI). PHI is any individually identifiable healthcare-related information. Revenue Cycle Management organizations such as AIMA who service healthcare clients and come into contact with PHI must be compliant.
AIMA commit to adhere to the necessary regulatory standards outlined in the HIPAA Privacy Rule, Security Rule, Breach Notification Rule, Omnibus Rule, and HITECH.
“The entire AIMA team is immensely proud to be awarded the HIPAA Seal of Compliance. Attainment proves we care about safeguarding information. Our customers can be confident that AIMA goes above and beyond to protect their sensitive information. The Seal of Compliance is a symbol of AIMA’s forward-thinking attitude towards transparency and quality-controlled solutions to meet the needs of our healthcare business customers.”Patrick Richmond, AIMA Vice-President of Global Operations.
The Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) is the federal agency that enforces HIPAA. HHS does not provide or endorse HIPAA certifications. When HHS conducts an audit, it looks at whether an organization can demonstrate that it has made a good faith effort toward achieving HIPAA compliance.
The Seal of Compliance is issued by the Compliancy Group, a recognized third-party compliance verification standard for healthcare professionals, vendors, and IT professionals across the healthcare industry.
