Optio Software, which builds infrastructure products designed to improve and automate enterprise data, released Thursday a new product that the company includes help for healthcare related firms dealing with HIPAA issues.

MedEx Suite includes HIPAASmart technology designed for hospitals that must meet Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act standards. The federal legislation passed in 1996 that establishes controls for patient records.

Optio Software said the product provides hospital administrators with tools to set up their own security and other record review processes through a web browser.
