NJAMHAA and ComplyAssistant Partner to Help Members Keep Data Secure

February 5, 2018 - 

As compliance with data-security laws and regulations can be a costly endeavor, especially when data breaches occur, and as nonprofit organizations have become major targets for hackers, the New Jersey Association of Mental Health and Addiction Agencies, Inc. (NJAMHAA) established a partnership with ComplyAssistant, a New Jersey healthcare compliance and cybersecurity firm. ComplyAssistant offers a cloud Governance, Risk and Compliance (GRC) portal along with supporting audit services for information privacy, security and breach notification rules. The partnership offers NJAMHAA members (providers of mental health, substance use and intellectual/developmental disabilities services) with access to the ComplyAssistant portal and audit services to help ensure security of the agencies’ and their clients’ information.

The fact is that all NJAMHAA member agencies must protect their sensitive personal health information in order to reduce the risk of a breach and to be prepared for government audits. This program from NJAMHAA and ComplyAssistant is designed to get our member organizations on the right path and to keep them there, at prices they can afford,” said June Noto, NJAMHAA’s Vice President of Information Technology, Human Resources and Administrative Services.

“Over the years, we have seen many healthcare provider organizations struggle with their responsibility under the HIPAA and other federal and state information privacy, security and breach notification rule requirements due to their limited funds. Due diligence activities can be expensive, but they must be done, and providers must protect their patients’ data and their organizations. We are thrilled to be able to team up with NJAMHAA to provide their member agencies with an affordable information security risk audit solution!” said Gerry Blass, President & CEO of ComplyAssistant.

ComplyAssistant will guide providers through a series of questions designed to cover the Security Rule of the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA). NJAMHAA members’ responses will be analyzed by HIPAA subject matter experts, and risk and operational ratings will be assigned along with mitigation tasks that are recommended to reduce risk and increase operational compliance.
