AHA endorses Clearwater Compliance solutions


The American Hospital Association (AHA) has exclusively endorsed health care information privacy, security, compliance and risk management solutions from Clearwater Compliance.

AHA Solutions, a subsidiary of the AHA, awards the AHA Endorsement to products and services that help member hospitals and health care organizations achieve operational excellence.

According to AHA, Clearwater’s solutions were selected for their excellence in enabling health care organizations and their business associates to protect patient information by helping them establish, implement and mature their information risk management programs.

 “Clearwater’s solutions stand out in part because they are backed by a team of veteran experts in HIPAA/HITECH and other health care regulations who understand and exclusively serve the health care field,” said Anthony Burke, senior vice president of the AHA, and president and chief executive officer of AHA Solutions.

“This deep expertise informs the unique architecture of Clearwater’s software and solutions, which rigorously follow the regulations, HHS/OCR guidance and the NIST Security Framework. The software enables organizations to evaluate compliance and risk; document results; manage and respond to compliance gaps and risks to their information; and report progress — ultimately allowing them to become self-sufficient in maintaining their compliance programs and managing their risks.”

Bob Chaput, chief executive officer and founder of Clearwater Compliance, added: “We have helped hundreds of health care organizations of all sizes to prepare for and respond to OCR audits and investigations, and to successfully establish robust compliance and overall information risk management programs.

“As a result, these organizations have improved processes, increased regulation compliance and reduced costs. The AHA Endorsement of our Health Care Information Privacy, Security, Compliance and Risk Management Solutions recognizes our commitment to assisting organizations that value the protection of patient information privacy and security.”
