QIP Solutions: Who We Are


(Rockville, Maryland)— Healthcare providers are one lost-or-stolen laptop, tablet or smartphone away from a data-theft nightmare. And they’re faced with increasingly stringent federal regulations that require health data security. HIPAA HITECH Express offers providers a simple solution for overcoming those fears.

HIPAA HITECH Express is an all-in-one, end-to-end, easy-to-use software tool that gives providers everything they could possibly need to become compliant and ready for an audit and regulatory review.

Using this software is as simple as using TurboTax. HIPAA HITECH Express:

· Guides providers’ administrative staff through federal privacy and security requirements

· Helps them identify risks and gaps

· Explains how to remediate those issues

· Aids their ongoing compliance and risk management

HIPAA HITECH Express was developed by Rockville, Maryland-based QiP Solutions.

“We’re reducing complexity for providers,” said QiP Solutions CEO and co-founder Robert Zimmerman. “We designed HIPAA HITECH Express to be simple and intuitive, yet comprehensive.” The company is serving an underserved market. “We’re focusing small-to-medium sized provider groups, hospitals and clinics in under-served rural and urban communities,” explained Zimmerman.

Technology is an important component of “meaningful use,” but providers often feel overwhelmed by the burden of assessing, managing and monitoring data security. Having a tool that simplifies compliance and enhances understanding is all the more important since the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) issued final regulations on January 25, 2013, that affect data security provisions in HIPAA (the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act).

“The final rule expanded compliance responsibility to include business associates and exchanges,” explained Zimmerman. “So, the question for providers is not only ‘Are they compliant?’ but also ‘Are all the people in their network compliant?'”

“We do more than just sell subscriptions to our software,” he said. “As a former auditor, I know what to look for. We help people actually get their compliance process going. We take on a ‘virtual security privacy officer’ role for our clients and help them focus on the top priorities — the ‘musts’ — to be secure and protected against a breach.”
