HIPAA Compliance Under HIPAA regulations, Excelas is considered a business associate. Being entrusted with your patient and resident medical records, whether electronic or on paper, we make compliance with HIPAA regulations our highest priority. Excelas abides by all current HIPAA regulations, and strives to respond immediately to any changes in regulations. Our roadmap to compliance begins with periodic HIPAA training for all staff, as well as routine risk assessments and formal privacy and security policies. As required by HIPAA regulations, we have an appointed privacy officer, who manages our compliance assessments. Under their guidance, Excelas has met all U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) requirements, and we’re also implementing many HHS recommendations for business associates. Excelas maintains rigorous procedures for the handling of medical records—from the moment they arrive until the moment they leave our office, and every point in between. If you have questions related to compliance, just ask. We want you to rest assured your records are handled with the utmost regard for security.
