PAR Solutions Conference 2013

Posted by Tony Conte on Tue, Nov 26, 2013 @ 02:19 PM

The annual PAR Solutions Conference was last week in Harrisburg, PA.  PAR was incorporated in 1970 as a statewide, not-for-profit organization.   PAR members provide the full range of supports and services to more than 47,000 individuals with intellectual disabilities, including over 8,000 children and adults living with autism, in over 8,100 locations.  The yearly conference gives all its members a chance to meet with one another and share ideas between

Your checklist for HIPAA Compliant software

Posted by Mike Holihan on Thu, Sep 12, 2013 @ 08:46 AM

In your search for the right agency management platform, a big "must-have" is a software that meets HIPAA regulations.  HIPAA is the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996.  These two rules are otherwise known as the ‘Standards for Privacy of Individually Identifiable Health Information’(Privacy Rule) and the ‘Security Standards for the Protection of Electronic Protected Health Information’(Security Rule). Because the software is managing protected health information, it's important that the software has passed HIPAA certfications.  It seems obvious, but think about all of the home made solutions out there.  While they are inexpensive, are they safe and do they meet HIPAA certs?  Chances are they don't and that puts your agency at risk.  We put together a checklist to use when checking out software to see if meets the HIPAA standards.  And if you're wondering, yes - MediSked Connect if fully HIPAA compliant!
