Shipshape IT is pleased to announce that it has successfully completed a third-party HIPPA audit, and has been awarded the HIPPA Seal of Compliance. Our support and operations practices are verified to be in full support of federally-mandated HIPAA standards regulated by the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) Office for Civil Rights (OCR). HIPPA standards are fully addressed by Shipshape IT and are incorporated into an effective, organization-wide compliance program.
Shipshape IT has completed a HIPAA appraisal process, 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.
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 Shipshape IT choose the HIPAA Seal of Compliance to differentiate their services.
