Sypherlink, G.A. Sullivan to join forces on platform
Atlanta-based Sypherlink Inc., a provider of privacy software solutions, has teamed up with G.A. Sullivan, a global e-business solutions provider, to design and deploy the first collaborative platform for the health care industry. The platform will be used to move and manage health information and will allow health care participants achieve compliance with HIPAA’s Standards for Privacy of Individually Identifiable Health Information.
Sypherlink and G.A. Sullivan’s platform will minimize costs, complexity, and maintenance for those customers who need to comply with the privacy regulations by the April 14, 2003 deadline. HIPAA’s privacy rule establishes national standards to protect individuals’ medical records and other personal health information, and compliance is the most costly implementation of all HIPAA regulations–estimated at more than $30 billion for the industry. Compliance necessitates a change in behavioral and procedural changes, new business processes and technology infrastructure, and secure communications with up to tens of thousands of business partners.
Sypherlink will provide a broad range of subscription-based outsourced services to payors, providers, and government organizations. G.A. Sullivan will assist customers in defining and executing compliance strategies and building solutions for compliance. -CU Staff
