The North Carolina Healthcare Information and Communications Alliance will partner with Paramore Consulting to provide healthcare organizations with assistance in meeting Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Ace (HIPAA) requirements.

The consulting firm will offer access to NCHICA’s HIPAA software program known as EarlyView.

PCI is based in Louisville, Ky. It has clients across the United States.

“PCI continues its focus on helping healthcare do business electronically, and HIPAA security compliance is a fundamental building block,” said Miriam Paramore, chief executive officer of PCI. “Providing access to NCHICA’s HIPAA EarlyView(tm) Security software tool enhances our consulting services and gives clients an important ‘leave-behind’ database that can be used for managing security compliance over time.”

NCHICA now includes more than 250 organizations in its membership.
