THE PARTNERSHIP BRINGS FORTH THE FIRST FULLY AUTOMATED HIPAA COMPLIANCE SOLUTION FOR THE EYE CARE INDUSTRY SEAMLESSLY INTEGRATED INTO PRACTICE MANAGEMENT AND EHR SOFTWARE
May 19, 2017
Rancho Cordova, Calif. — Eyefinity®, a leader in practice management software for eye care professionals, today announced a formal partnership with Abyde – a Tampa, Florida based technology start-up that has developed an easy-to-use HIPAA compliance management application. The partnership will provide Eyefinity customers with an intuitive and automated approach to managing ever-changing HIPAA regulations.
“Doctors tell us that they would like their Eyefinity products and services to seamlessly blend into the background of their practices’ operations so that patient care can continue to be at the forefront. That is always our goal,” said Steve Baker, Eyefinity President. “Regulatory compliance is crucial and our new partnership with Abyde furthers our mission so that checking the box here doesn’t take away from any time spent with patients.”
Abyde is a revolutionary, cloud-based software solution that enables eye care professionals to easily attain and sustain internal HIPAA compliance programs by walking them through the Risk Analysis, ongoing compliance, policy, procedure, and HIPAA training requirements. Users will be notified via email when they need to address a compliance item. The program will then require a log in, the answering of a few questions and at the end of the process Abyde then will automatically generate all documentation necessary to meet the Meaningful Use, MACRA, and MIPS Risk Analysis Core Measures and Objectives.
“We are elated to team up with a company of Eyefinity’s magnitude and influence,” stated Abyde President, Matt DiBlasi. “Abyde heaps additional value upon Eyefinity’s well-established brand by providing a simple solution to complex HIPAA challenges. As a result, we are confident thousands of practices across the country will reap the rewards of this collaboration for many years to come.”
Abyde is a technology company comprised of HIPAA compliance experts and was formed in 2016 with the idea that there could exist an easier, more cost-effective way for healthcare practices to comply with government-mandated HIPAA regulations.
