The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA; Pub.L. 104-191, 110 Stat. 1936, enacted August 21, 1996) was enacted by the United States Congress and signed by President Bill Clinton in 1996. It has been known as the Kennedy-Kassebaum Act or Kassebaum-Kennedy Act after two of its leading sponsors. Title I of HIPAA protects health insurance coverage for workers and their families when they change or lose their jobs. Title II of HIPAA, known as the Administrative Simplification (AS) provisions, requires the establishment of national standards for electronic healthcare transactions and national identifiers for providers, health insurance plans, and employers.

As our company has evolved into a comprehensive multi-channel communications partner, we have taken important steps to protect and integrate data. In 2012, our team began to execute a plan that would enhance specific trust service principles to comply with our clients’ demands and how a third party auditor would view our data management process.
Confidentiality – information designated as confidential is protected as agreed upon.
Process – integrity system processing is complete, accurate, timely, and authorized.
Availability – our system is available for operation and use as committed or agreed.
Privacy – information is collected, used, retained, disclosed, and then disposed of in conformity with the commitments in the entity’s privacy notice.
These efforts have propelled us into helping our clients acquire more customers that are profitable, increase current customer retention, and deepen member interests. New mover campaigns, donor development outreach and member recruitment efforts are just a few examples of how data can be used to automate the deployment of highly relevant messages to audiences as small as one.
