Maneuvering through the maze to understand and reach HIPAA (Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act) compliance is a challenge for any physician practice.

However, thanks to a partnership with HIPAAdocs, clients of Misys Healthcare Systems have found an easy, effective way to prepare for the upcoming HIPAA deadline.

Now available for Misys’ clients, HIPAAsteps is a set of Web-based applications containing tools and knowledge organizations need to become and remain HIPAA compliant.

HIPAA privacy and security content is kept up-to-date by nationally recognized HIPAA experts and regulatory changes are monitored by HIPAAdog, HIPAAsteps’ regulatory watchdog feature.

Tammy Swanson, product manager for Misys Healthcare Systems, said the Raleigh-based company evaluated other HIPAA privacy and security compliance solutions before discovering HIPAAsteps.

“We definitely believe HIPAAsteps is the best solution for our physician market – it takes a huge burden off of our customers,” Swanson said. “And the feedback from our clients who are utilizing the application definitely confirm this.”
