New tool, HIPAA Alliance Marketplace, helps find HIPAA compliant business associates

By ASN Staff

"Healthcare organizations are only permitted to use business associates that agree to comply with HIPAA Rules and sign a business associate agreement, but finding HIPAA compliant business associates can be a challenge.

A solution has now been developed that resolves the issues for both parties and streamlines the process of finding HIPAA compliant business associates. Would-be business associates can also use the solution to prove that they have the necessary safeguards in place to ensure their products and services can be used without violating HIPAA Rules.

The HIPAA Alliance Marketplace is a closed ecosystem founded by the Compliancy Group, which serves as a repository for HIPAA-compliant vendors that can be used to connect medical professionals with trusted vendors.

'The HIPAA Alliance Marketplace is the only tool of its kind for the health care market today,” said Marc Haskelson, President and CEO of Compliancy Group on the launch of their new HIPAA Alliance Marketplace. “In this climate of data breaches, ransomware, and cyber-security threats, health care providers can rely on the HIPAA Alliance Marketplace to find HIPAA compliant vendors with the security and privacy infrastructure in place to keep their data safe. Vendors can confidently execute Business Associate Agreements with their clients, and providers can be confident in their choice of vendors vetted and verified by the HIPAA Seal of Compliance.'"
