Bonafide Medical Group, a business workflow management software provider for the durable medical equipment and home medical equipment industries, has beefed up its strategy against cyberattacks.
The Thousand Oaks-based company has become one of the latest subscribers to ClearAdvantage, Clearwater’s multi-year managed cybersecurity and Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act compliance program.
Clearwater is a leading provider of enterprise cyber risk management and HIPAA compliance solutions for the health industry.
As cyberattacks continue to plague the industry, health care organizations are demanding stronger cybersecurity and HIPAA compliance programs from their vendors. By partnering with Clearwater, Bonafide, according to the company, is taking proactive steps to ensure that it has the right expertise and tools to meet its customers’ expectations with respect to maintaining a strong security posture and keeping pace with rapidly evolving compliance concerns.
“Throughout Bonafide’s history, we have worked with industry leaders to establish standards and best practices with respect to HIPAA and data security,” said Mark Ludwig, Bonafide Medical Group chief executive, in a statement. “We have established connectivity using HIPAA-standard formats with more providers, vendors, and health plans than any other company in the (durable medical equipment and home medical equipment) space, and we currently process the most HIPAA-compliant transactions in the industry. But as the industry continues to evolve, we recognize the need to advance our approach to cybersecurity and HIPAA compliance. Clearwater is the ideal partner to help us do that.”
Bonafide has entered into an initial four-year subscription to the ClearAdvantage Protect Plus cybersecurity and risk management program. It addresses a range of concerns from governance and optical character recognition quality risk analysis and risk management and to vulnerability assessments and incident response.
