We are pleased to announce that HTG has been recognized as a national leader in HIPAA compliance by Apgar and Associates after a recent technology expansion within our secure asset disposition program. Chris Apgar, a leading nationwide consultant in HIPAA compliance called our new asset retirement program “without a doubt the most secure and robust in the business that I have seen in the past 13 years.”
Our HIPAA compliant services provide technology retirement and e-recycling with enhanced data security services for health organizations in Washington, Oregon, California, Montana and Alaska.
HTG’s first customer in the new program saved $200,000 in IT costs in the first six months due to a detailed process and secure technology overhaul guided by industry experts. Program elements that earned us our ranking involve EOL inventory management, facility security, reporting, data destruction and data security, medical equipment management, branding removal, final disposition, media sanitation, tools utilized, minimum recycling requirements, exception processing, recycling costs, labor costs and payment processes.
Let HTG help your organization navigate the new and comprehensive 2013 HIPAA Omnibus Ruling in effect now. The compliance deadline is fast approaching. We are strongly encouraging our customers to initiate internal reviews without delay to ensure timely completion of any technology or process changes required by the ruling.
