Macadamian Technologies Confirms HIPAA Compliance with Compliancy Group

Compliancy Group has announced that Macadamian Technologies has implemented an effective HIPAA compliance program and has awarded the company the HIPAA Seal of Compliance.

Macadamian Technologies is a Gatineau, QC-based software design and development firm and the developer of digital health and connected medical device software solutions to improve healthcare.

The solutions developed by Macadamian Technologies come into contact with protected health information and, as such, the company is classed as a business associate under HIPAA. That means the company must comply with the requirements of the HIPAA Security Rule and implement safeguards to ensure the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of protected health information.

While compliance with the HIPAA Privacy Rule is not mandatory for business associates of HIPAA-covered entities, as a business associate, Macadamian Technologies must provide satisfactory assurances to all covered entities that use its services and software solutions that the company is fully compliant with all appropriate requirements of the HIPAA Rules.

One of the ways that companies such as Macadamian Technologies can provide those assurances to covered entities is through third-party HIPAA compliance attestation. Macadamian Technologies partnered with Compliancy Group to demonstrate compliance and the company’s ongoing commitment to ensuring the privacy and security of healthcare data.

Macadamian Technologies adopted Compliancy Group’s proven HIPAA compliance methodology and used its compliance tracking software solution – The Guard – in that process. After demonstrating compliance and undergoing Compliancy Group’s 6-stage risk analysis and remediation process, Macadamian Technologies was awarded the HIPAA Seal of Compliance, which demonstrates the company has implemented an effective HIPAA compliance program.

“With full HIPAA compliance, Macadamian is able to accelerate new product introductions for its U.S. based customers,” said Timon LeDain, Macadamian’s VP of Customer Solutions. “In an era of digital transformation, we’re seeing more patient data go online. Being HIPAA compliant means customers have peace of mind knowing that patient-data privacy and security is a key priority for Macadamian.”

One of the software solutions developed for the healthcare sector is the Macadamian HealthConnectTM Platform-as-a-Service. This is used by customers to accelerate the development of digital health solutions that streamline clinician workflows and improve patient care. “Leveraging the Macadamian HealthConnectTM platform in solutions provides customers with the data security, privacy, availability and traceability that HIPAA regulations mandate for electronic Protected Health Information (ePHI) built into their products from day one,” said LeDain. “This is exemplified in the Macadamian QSuite of COVID-19 risk mitigation tools. Although many QSuite customers do not fall under HIPAA’s Privacy Rules, they leverage a suite of tools built on the Macadamian HealthConnectTM platform designed to meet the highest standards of data privacy and security.”
