NASHVILLE, TENNESSEE - Bob Chaput is the founder and chief executive officer of Clearwater Compliance, LLC, an award-winning provider of Health Insurance Portability, and Accountability ACT (HIPPA) of 1996 compliance services, and information risk management programs. Security standards, and federal laws did not exist to protect health information, whether, oral, written, or, in electronic format in the healthcare industry prior to HIPPA. Clearwater Compliance has a team of veteran healthcare executives with miles of experience in cyber-security, and information risk management solutions. The American Hospital Association (AHA), founded in 1898, is a national organization that represents roughly 5,000 hospitals, and 43,000 individual members in national health policy development, judicial matters, regulatory debates, etc.. Clearwater Compliance has earned the exclusive endorsement of the AHA, and has worked endlessly to meet the highest level of customer satisfaction.
“Compliance and cyber risks are inextricably linked to reputation risks, financial risks, legal risks, operational and clinical/patient safety risks,” said Chaput, CEO of Clearwater Compliance. “Hospital risk managers have an opportunity help their organizations evolve from treating these new information and technology risks as compliance risks or IT issues.”
Bob Chaput is truly a national name in the booming field of cyber-security, and now, co-author of a chapter from a book destined to be released on November 15, 2017, titled Health Care Risk Management Fundamentals. This book is the essential resource for techniques, standards, methods, and laws pertaining to patient safety. Chaput has not only helped Healthways, a well-being improvement company, protect the health records of 45 million Americans, and assist General Electric, a multinational conglomerate company, make informed decisions in respect to information privacy, but, brings us to the forefront of technology, and data in Health Care Risk Management Fundamentals.
