We Have the Key to HIPAA Compliance (and Other Industry Compliance)

You know that HIPAA compliance is a critical foundation for any Life Sciences business dealing with personal health information.  Medical technology, pharmaceutical, and therapy companies collecting patient data are required to be compliant in addition to medical providers.

Penalties for violations can be severe, and enforcement is escalating.   Did you also know that you are also responsible for the compliance of “business associates” who may have access to sensitive data or systems, including your IT services provider?  HIPAA compliance is serious business – so we’ve stepped up our risk management and compliance consultancy to meet the demands.

IT system controls, stability, and security are a key part of this foundation.  Intivix is HIPAA compliant as a business associate and builds these controls into our standard processes for all IT security managed services clients.  And, if you need help with the full range of HIPAA compliance beyond IT related requirements, we have relationships with nationally recognized HIPAA consultants with cost-effective legislative compliance solutions.

If you’re an early-stage company, startup, or otherwise young and growing, you can either wait to get compliant until absolutely necessary (not recommended), or you can put in all appropriate IT controls and processes now at no extra cost.

If you’re already an established provider, we can take the burden of maintaining the evolving IT requirements for HIPAA and other compliance regimens off your staff while we provide reliable and consistent technical support services.

As a risk management and compliance consultant, we also provide compliance consulting for those in the financial, retail, education, and other industries that fall under certain other compliance regulations like FINRA, SOX, PCI-DSS, GLBA, and the EU-US Privacy Shield Compliance Act.
