Ready to learn more about how AZBS can move your business forward?


As you know, we've worked with you for over fifteen years. During that time, our company has needed to stay on top of the latest technology. AZBS has guided us through that challenge offering excellent advice, while at the same time being conscious of cost restraints. Your technology plan has been "the bible" for us over the years.

We were looking for a new accounting package that was to be the basis of an integrated information system. You guided us through that decision, carefully taking into consideration everyone's needs. We've been very pleased with the success of that project. Your team was very helpful in setting up our telephone system so that our DC and Chicago offices act as one office location. And of course, there are the everyday things too. Your team is always there to help us with our computer hardware and software problems.

It's been a pleasure working with AZBS and I look forward to many more years of the same.

HIPAA Compliancy Services

What’s new at AZBS

HIPAA – the HIPPA Insurance Portability and Accountability Act. We’ve all heard of it, but what is it really?

HIPAA is a law designed to provide privacy standards to protect patients’ medical records, however, it applies not only to doctors, hospitals, and other health care providers, but any business that provides services to those entities, as well as those that provide services to those service providers!

Here as AZBS we have completed a comprehensive HIPAA verification process. This thorough program focuses not only on the physical and technical security in place to protect data, but also the administrative controls through policies, processes, education, and on-going management.

We are pleased to announce that we are one of the only HIPAA compliant technology service providers in the Midwest.

AZBS completes HIPAA verification process

A mutual concern with all our clients is the need to keep data secure. Being HIPAA compliant isn’t strictly for doctors’ offices!

HIPAA compliance applies to many industries in its own way. Within specific industries, classified data and its security needs are defined by regulations which govern the industries themselves.

According to HIPAA definitions, data security standards are not only applicable to “Covered Entities” (CE’s), or those who directly provide health-related services and maintain health records, but also “Business Associates” (BA’s) who provide services to Covered Entities. In addition, those who provide services to Business Associates are considered “Downstream Business Associates”, and are also impacted with data security requirements.

What all that means is that even though you may not be the doctor’s office (CE), because you are the IT team (BA) you are absolutely held liable for a HIPAA exposure.

HIPAA compliance falls under the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services who maintains a list of data breaches that have affected more than 500 entities on their “wall of shame”.

Think HIPAA compliance is just policies and procedures? There’s a lot more to the puzzle. Contact us today for a free intro to full HIPAA Compliancy requirements.
