CIC Achieves HIPAA and HITECH Compliance
REDWOOD SHORES, CA, April 10, 2015 – Communication Intelligence Corporation (“CIC”) (OTCQB: CICI), a leading supplier of electronic signature and other software solutions enabling secure and cost-effective management of document-based digital transactions, today announced that Sword & Shield Enterprise Security, Inc. (“Sword & Shield”), an independent information security service provider, completed an assessment confirming that CIC is compliant with the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) security rules and the Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health (HITECH) Act.
“Maintaining our information technology infrastructure in a highly secure and compliant manner is of utmost importance to us,” said Nhan Nguyen, chief security officer for CIC. “We understand the importance of safeguarding electronic protected health information (ePHI) and our HIPAA compliant status assures that we have implemented the necessary security measures to safeguard ePHI covered under HIPAA and HITECH.”
“CIC’s HIPAA compliance permits healthcare providers to realize the same digital transaction management efficiencies that their non-HIPAA constrained counterparts have been enjoying for years,” said Katherine Dease, chief compliance officer for CIC. “As our nation struggles to provide expanded healthcare coverage while reducing costs, a flexible, easy and paperless process that offers cutting edge security and is HIPAA compliant becomes essential. CIC’s HIPAA compliant iSign® Enterprise and related products and services provide the ultimate solution for healthcare firms interested in a fully electronic platform. Electronic delivery, review and signature of ePHI forms can significantly reduce the cost of these workflow processes and are available from CIC both on-premise and in the cloud.”
