HIPAA Association of America, a national organization that aims to help medical practices—including physical therapy practices—become HIPAA compliant, has officially launched.

By joining HAOA.org, members will be able to manage their HIPAA policies and procedures via a cost-effective cloud-based solution and address every element of HIPAA compliance.

Additionally, upon membership activation, members will be awarded the HAOA.org’s Shield of HIPAA Compliance, which demonstrates their efforts toward satisfying the HIPAA standards and creating an effective HIPAA compliance program, according to a media release from HIPAA Association of America.

“We created the HIPAA Association of America because medical offices need to better equip themselves with the tools required to be HIPAA compliant,” says Ryan Alovis, president and CEO of HIPAA Association of America, in the release.

“Sensitive information is becoming more readily available and patients are becoming more educated on the requirements of HIPAA,” he adds.
