Xact Data Discovery Achieves HIPAA Certified Business Agent Status

KANSAS CITY, MO--(Marketwire - August 18, 2010) -  Xact Data Discovery (XDD) is excited to announce the completion of HIPAA certification in its national offices. The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) of 1996 was enacted to ensure that individuals would be able to maintain their health insurance between jobs as well as to ensure the security and confidentiality of patient information/data.

Xact Data Discovery's HIPAA certification process included development of new policies surrounding the handling of client information. As a Business Associate, XDD is compliant with the regulations in all areas of HIPAA and will conduct annual risk assessments as well as associate training to ensure that all electronic personal health information (EPHI) and personal health information (PHI) is protected. XDD's Director of Human Resources, Katie Ervin will administer the program. Ervin has nearly 13 years experience working with HIPAA achieving certification as a Certified HIPAA Professional (CHP).

"While we have always protected all information we process for clients, this certification just takes it to a higher level," said Robert Polus, President and CEO of XDD. "We take the extra steps above and beyond to be sure we are compliant. This allows us to work with those covered entities that must follow HIPAA such as hospitals, insurance carriers, and pharmacies to name a few."
