Internal Medicine of Memphis Chooses eGestalt for HIPAA/HITECH Compliance Management

SANTA CLARA, CA--(Marketwire - Jun 21, 2011) - eGestalt Technologies (www.eGestalt.com), a leading provider of cloud-based, SaaS-delivered, security and information technology governance, risk management and compliance (IT-GRC) solutions for small to mid-size organizations, today announced that Internal Medicine Associates of Memphis, TN has selected the company's HIPAA solution, SecureGRC SB, to meet its compliance requirements.

eGestalt technology services partner SOS Systems of Memphis (http://sos-systems.com), a Managed Compliance Provider, provided on-site deployment, guidance and training.

SecureGRC SB provides an ideal, easy-to-use, cost-effective solution for SMBs such as medical clinics and physician practices all the way to larger medical organizations such as physician groups, physician organizations and hospitals. The solution walks the end user through easy Q&A steps to conduct a self-assessment of the organization's current security and compliance posture, closing all compliance gaps via document uploads, and thus reducing exposure to potential fines while maintaining continuous compliance.

Starting with an evaluation to assess needs, SOS Systems used the native templates available in the SecureGRC SB solution to set up policies and automate procedures, helping to manage 10-years' worth of patient records.

"We started with nothing, and SOS thankfully provided all the documentation we needed," said Internal Medicine of Memphis (IMM). "We scanned into the system hundreds of patient files. Using SecureGRC SB, we performed an assessment that instructed us how to proceed with aligning ourselves with HIPAA compliancy. We could browse and click and see where things had to be. SOS trained us on using SecureGRC SB and explained how and where we needed to be compliant.

"The system gave us confidence that policies and procedures were being followed, and that patient records were being managed successfully," said IMM.

Says David Altizer, vice president of SOS Systems of Bartlett, Tenn., "SecureGRC SB was built with the everyday office worker in mind, making it easy and simple to use. The user has to only follow a set of guided questions to manage the whole self-assessment process."

Says eGestalt president Anupam Sahai, "SecureGRC SB demystifies security and compliance through automation of the self-assessments you need to conduct in order to accomplish this. Comprehensive HIPAA and HITECH support is simplified and built-in, easily extended, and automatically kept up to date. The self-assessment process includes online help and access to best practices which enables users to answer questions effectively. SMBs can achieve risk mitigation by remediating any security and compliance gaps found by enforcing policies and procedures through customization of templates available from SecureGRC SB."

Once users have made their first pass, the compliance gaps are clearly communicated, SecureGRC's risk calculator prioritizes the areas that need immediate attention first.

SecureGRC SB is delivered through managed compliance providers (MCP) who leverage the built-in 'Best Practices' library in the solution on how best to customize and resolve each and every open issue with a common sense approach depending on the particular business deployment.
