"It's a wake-up call for providers to better prepare themselves,” notes Peter Teichert, Vice President, Compliance, Prime Care Technologies. “Our partnership with HIPAA One offers access to industry-leading HIPAA Risk Assessment software, so our customers now have a simpler way to manage all the tasks involved with HIPAA compliance.”
