ADEC Innovations Healthcare has recently been confirmed as being in full compliance with all appropriate provisions of the HIPAA Privacy, Security, Breach Notification, and Omnibus Rules, and the HITECH Act.

ADEC Innovations Healthcare is a service provider to the healthcare industry, providing a range of services to reduce the administrative burden on healthcare organizations, including digital health management, revenue cycle management, clinical management, pharmacy benefits management, payer services, and back-office services. The company has extensive experience within the healthcare industry and leverages technology, data, expertise, and human ingenuity to deliver healthcare solutions that meet clients’ bespoke needs.

Providing these services often requires access to protected health information, which means ADEC Innovations Healthcare is classed as a business associate under HIPAA. ADEC Innovations Healthcare was launched in 2015 and has been HIPAA-compliant since that date; however, the company chose to partner with Compliancy Group to ensure that no aspect of the HIPAA Rules had been overlooked and used Compliancy Group’s HIPAA compliance methodology to attain the HIPAA Seal of Compliance.

Compliancy Group’s methodology has been heavily vetted against federal regulations, meets NIST requirements, and includes a 6-stage risk analysis and remediation process. Clients track their compliance journey using Compliancy Group’s proprietary software solution – The Guard – and after completion of that process, clients’ HIPAA compliance programs are assessed by Compliancy Group’s HIPAA subject matter experts and Compliance Coaches.  Clients that have successfully completed the process are awarded the HIPAA Seal of Compliance, with demonstrates they have implemented an effective HIPAA compliance program. The HIPAA Seal of Compliance also helps business associates differentiate their services and demonstrate their commitment to HIPAA compliance to current and future clients.

“ADEC Innovations Healthcare is committed to upholding the highest information security standards and attaining the HIPAA Seal of Compliance attests to this. Our healthcare clients trust us to process data safely, we take this seriously, and continuously enhance practices to meet and exceed clients’ needs and expectations,” said James Donovan, CEO, ADEC Innovations. “HIPAA compliance helped our organization to improve the management and protection of health information as regards people, processes, and technology. The Compliancy Group provided a straightforward approach to achieving the HIPAA Seal of Compliance through its GUARD system – a one-stop shop for document management, asset registration, incident management, training, audit checklist, and remediation process.”

In addition to receiving confirmation of HIPAA compliance, ADEC Innovations Healthcare also holds three ISO certifications: ISO 9001:2015: ISO and Quality Management; ISO 14001:2015: Environmental management systems; and ISO 27001:2013: Information Security Management, and is in the process of achieving HITRUST certification.
