Compliancy Group has recently verified that EDBS Dental Billing Solutions is fully compliant with all appropriate provisions of the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) Rules and the HITECH Act.
EDBS Dental Billing Solutions provides billing services to dental practices in Washington DC, Maryland, and Virginia, and across the United States. The company’s remote dental insurance and claims billing, dental patient billing, and dental insurance verifications solutions ease the burden on dental front office staff by helping them deal with the intricacies of insurance billing and the challenging task of collecting patient bills.
The services provided naturally require EDBS Dental Billing Solutions to come into contact with the protected health information of dental patients, which makes EDBS Dental Billing Solutions a business associate under HIPAA. Achieving and maintaining HIPAA compliance can be challenging for business associates, which is why many choose to work with a third-party compliance company. By partnering with compliance experts they can ensure that no requirements of HIPAA are overlooked.
EDBS Dental Billing Solutions partnered with Compliancy Group and used the company’s proprietary HIPAA methodology to ensure complete compliance, tracking progress on the compliance journey by using Compliancy Group’s compliance software – The Guard. Through the use of the software, EDBS Dental Billing Solutions was able to methodically ensure complete compliance with all appropriate provisions and implementation specifications of the HIPAA Privacy, Security, Breach Notification, and Omnibus Rules, and the HITECH Act.
After completing Compliancy Group’s Six Stage Implementation Program, the good faith effort of EDBS Dental Billing Solutions to achieve HIPAA compliance was assessed by Compliancy Group’s HIPAA compliance experts, who confirmed that EDBS Dental Billing Solutions was fully compliant with the HIPAA Rules and had implemented an effective HIPAA program to ensure future compliance. EDBS Dental Billing Solutions has now been awarded Compliancy Group’s HIPAA Seal of Compliance, which demonstrates to current and future clients that the company takes HIPAA compliance seriously and is committed to ensuring the privacy and security of the electronic protected health information of its clients.
“Since the nature of our business being exclusively remote, we take HIPAA compliance very seriously. With the help of Compliancy Group, we are able to take steps to fortify our systems to protect PHI information and familiarize each employee about HIPAA and how we can further safeguard PHI data,” said EDBS Dental Billing Solutions founder, Goldie De Leon.
