CTI Technology is pleased to announce that it has achieved compliance with the federally mandated standards of the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) through the use of Compliancy Group’s proprietary HIPAA methodology, The Guard® compliance tracking software, and the HIPAA Seal of Compliance®.

HIPAA is made up of a set of regulatory standards governing the security, privacy, and integrity of sensitive health care data called protected health information (PHI). PHI is any demographic health care-related information that can be used to identify a patient. If a vendor is expected to provide services to a health care client, they must be HIPAA compliant prior to having contact with PHI.

At CTI Technology, they believe that abiding by HIPAA regulations is critical to ensure that their healthcare clients are provided the necessary resources to protect patients’ privacy. They also feel that these regulations influence the reduction of fraudulent activity and increase the ability to improve data security.  By providing our healthcare clients with the proper understanding of how to be compliant, this reduces the chance of potential fines and allows organizations to focus on growing their profits instead of fearing audit fines or potentially leaking confidential patient information.

“Don’t be in distress, strive for success, protect your organization by securing your information.”

-Aaron Kane, CTI Technology

The HIPAA Seal of Compliance is issued to organizations that have implemented an effective HIPAA compliance program through the use of The Guard, Compliancy Group’s proprietary compliance tracking solution.

Implementing HIPAA regulations are mandatory to protect patient information within an organization. At CTI Technology, they believe that following these regulations and providing a secure network based on specific organizational budgets and needs are very important assets for any healthcare organization to be successful. As an IT company, they pride themselves as being one of the only technological organizations within the Northwestern region of Chicago who has taken the necessary steps to obtain their certification and educate their staff on the importance of the HIPAA Security Rule Standards and the Implementation Specifications.
