Below is an awesome testimonial from David Grossman, M.D. at Main Line Emergency Medicine Associates (MLEMA)
I am the Compliance officer, for Main Line Emergency Medicine Associates (MLEMA), We are an emergency medicine practice, conducting provider services for Main Line Health hospitals, in southeasternPennsylvania. In February, 2012, our practice decided to get Breach insurance and undergo a risk assessment of our vulnerability for a HIPAA violation. That is when I became acquainted with Art Gross and his team at Entegration (HIPAA Secure Now!).
The risk analysis was based upon information exchanged during 3 conference calls I had with Art Gross, Mike Coyle, and Karen Alexander. Findings and recommendations were crafted into a Detailed Report and Executive Summary. I was very impressed with the knowledge, expertise, and enthusiasm of the Entegration (HIPAA Secure Now!) team. A thorough scrutiny of how our practice accesses, creates, stores, and transmits protected health information was done. Our vulnerabilities for a breach were identified, and safeguards were recommended to help us protect and secure health information.
The next step was to purchase the HIPAA Secure Now service. This was extremely worthwhile, as Art and Mike crafted health information security policies and procedures tailored to our organization and provided a training program for our members. I worked closely with Art and Mike during this process, frequently exchanging emails and conducting another conference call. I received a valuable education from Art and Mike, as they gave me a good understanding of HIPAA mandates and rules.
I am grateful for all the time and insight that Art and Mike provided to help me understand how to securely handle protected health information in our practice. We scrutinized the key aspects of our daily workflow that involved health information, with special focus on computer workstation use, cell phone use, access and passwords, and employee education. Art and Mike were always cooperative and knowledgeable. They promptly responded to my email questions about the HIPAA Secure Now website and the security policies. They worked closely with me to modify and streamline the policies for our organization and to create an employee training module.
Based on the information conveyed to me by Art and Mike, I gave two HIPAA security presentations to the MLEMA Board, which were appreciated and well received. And last week, I sent out a training and awareness program to all MLEMA members, something that I could not have done without Art and Mike’s expertise.
I am truly grateful for the opportunity to work with Entegration (HIPAA Secure Now!). My appreciation for protecting health information was certainly raised. The conference calls, risk analysis, numerous emails, and informative website have given me a strong fund of knowledge and awareness about HIPAA standards and security rules. Thanks to Art and Mike, our management of health information will be confidential and secure. Without any reservations, I strongly recommend the Entegration (HIPAA Secure Now!) services to other organizations trying to learn more about protecting and safeguarding electronic health information.
