Teltek Systems recently received our HIPAA Seal of Compliance, the healthcare industry standard for verifying our efforts to ensure the protection of healthcare information. This designation shows that we’re serious about following HIPAA to the letter of the law and ensures that we provide HIPAA compliant technology solutions that allow our customers to remain HIPAA compliant as well.
What is the HIPAA Seal of Compliance?
The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996, better known as HIPAA, requires that healthcare information remains private and can only be disclosed with a patient’s consent or knowledge. It is a landmark rule in protecting patient information, including in electronic forms. Since this compliance isn’t offered from the federal government, nor any regulatory agencies, the HIPAA Seal of Compliance, awarded by the Compliancy Group, has become the healthcare industry standard for verification. It shows that the awardee has made a good-faith effort to protect patient information.
Why This is Important to Teltek
The HIPAA Seal of Compliance shows Teltek’s commitment to our customers. We work closely with several healthcare providers, offering IT support for medical offices and helping with our HIPAA-compliant phone system. The HIPAA Seal of Compliance is seen as an important differentiator in our business because it shows our customers that we have done everything in our power to protect sensitive information with our HIPAA compliant technology. While this certification is not required, we complete programs like this to ensure that we are serving our customers in the best way possible.
Helping Our Customers
Along with achieving our own HIPAA Seal of Compliance, we can better work with our customers to ensure all HIPAA requirements are met when working with sensitive health information. As a leader in providing IT support for medical offices, this puts us in a better position to ensure your organization avoids the strict fines that come with breaking HIPAA laws. We take all rules and regulations seriously and provide our customers with only the best solutions that meet their needs.
