Proficio Inc. has launched a new service to help hospitals and other health care organizations comply with federal rules for keeping medical information confidential.
The Carlsbad-based managed security service provider on Feb. 20 unveiled HIPAA Compliance Insight, named for the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996, enforced by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.
The service includes regularly scheduled compliance meetings hosted by the company, personalized reports, investigations where required to meet HHS requirements and procedures aimed at meeting the federal agency’s audit protocol.
“Additionally, the service can provide an accurate and thorough assessment of the potential risks and vulnerabilities to the confidentiality and integrity of records so that health care organizations can prevent a damaging data breach before it occurs,” Proficio said in a news release.
Founded in 2010, Proficio provides constant security monitoring and alerting, threat detection and automated response services.
