eGestalt Publishes White Paper on Solution for HIPAA Compliance for Small Medical Practices & Affiliates

eGestalt Technologies, today announced a White Paper that spells outin layman’s terms what businesses need to know about the Health Information Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA).

Santa Clara, CA, May 12, 2011 — eGestalt Technologies ( ), a world leading provider of cloud-based, SaaS-delivered, security and information technology governance, risk management and compliance (IT-GRC) solutions for small to mid-size organizations, today announced a White Paper that spells outin layman’s terms what businesses need to know about the Health Information Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) and its associative enforcement regulation called HITECH that was signed into law on February 2009 as part of Washington’s economic stimulus package.

HITECH stands for Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health. The act is designed to expand the impact and enforcement of HIPAA by defining the penalties for non-compliance of HIPAA.
The eGestalt White Paper ( ) highlights how not only healthcare providers but the various professionals who service them and their medical practices day to day are equally susceptible to HIPAA/HITECH regulations. These professionals affiliated with healthcare providers are defined by the regulations as Business Associates, and include “anyone who routinely exchanges or accesses Patient Health Information (PHI).”

According to HIPAA rules, Business Associates must also develop and implement written PHI security policies and procedures; they can also be audited by the U.S. Health & Human Services department and can, like healthcare providers, “easily incur penalties for failure to comply.”

“Doing a self-assessment, followed by risk analysis, is a critical step in achieving security and compliance,” says AnupamSahai, president of eGestalt and co-author of the White Paper. “Subsequently, maintaining continuous compliance by plugging the security and compliance gaps through remediation is the key to mitigating risk, reducing exposure, and assuring avoidance of the increasing threat of penalties.”

The paper demystifies security and HIPAA/HITECH, makes a strong casein support of a solution to the HIPAA/HITECH problem, advocating for the deployment of SecureGRC SB™, a patent-pending Cloud computing and automated Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) application that helps to meet these challenging privacy and security regulations at dramatically less cost and complexity than standard approaches.

Says Sahai, “SecureGRC SB demystifies security and compliance through automation of the self-assessments you need to conduct in order to accomplish this.Comprehensive HIPAA and HITECH support is simplified and built-in, easily extended, and automatically kept up to date. The self-assessment model is powerful since it begins by simply guiding the user with a set of questions.”

Once users have made their first pass,the compliance gaps are clearly communicated, SecureGRC’s risk calculator prioritizes the areas that need immediate attention first. SecureGRC SB is delivered through managed compliance providers (MCP) who leverage the built-in ‘Best Practices’ library in the solution on how best to customize and resolve each and every open issue with a common sense approach depending on the particular business deployment.

The SmartTOP Comfort Top Controller offered by Mods4cars for the Renault Megane CC (II) is now bundled with a Plug and Play wiring adapter for even easier and faster installation. Additionally the kit now retails for 50,00 Euro less.

Ocean, NJ, May 12, 2011 — The SmartTOP Convertible Top controller offered by Mods4cars ( ) for the Renault Megane CC (II) now ships with a custom designed plug-in-between wiring harness which uses the original Renault plugs and sockets. This ensures an even easier and quicker installation of the kit. The previous version required cutting and splicing into wires.

“This new wiring adapter provides a dead simple connection between the car electronics and our after market module by simply plugging it in.” says PR manager Sven Tornow. “Now it is possible for anyone to install the kit quickly and without hassle.”

Additionally, just in time for the start of the convertible top season the retail price was reduced to 209,00 Euro + tax. “The price reduction means a wider range of customers will now be able to enjoy the added convenience of our product.” Sven Tornow concludes.

The module allows opening and closing the top at the touch of a button. A quick tap is enough and maximum speed settings (up to 28mph/40kmh) amongst other features can be programmed by the end user. The car can be used top-down more often, now that it is not necessary to pull over and hold down the switch. Another feature worth mentioning is one-touch operation for the all-windows switch in the center console.

Like other products by Mods4cars, this module comes with a standard USB connector for quick and easy configuration of all settings as well as firmware updates (available free for life) by the end user. All features can be individually turned on or off and the entire module can be completely disabled, if desired.

About Mods4cars:
Mods4cars ( ) was founded in 2002 with the idea to add a highly demanded feature to the otherwise almost perfect Porsche Boxster: Comfort One-Touch roof operation while driving at slow speeds. The resulting product offered not only that, but also allowed quick and easy installation by just swapping out a relay box, thus leaving no traces and no permanent changes on the vehicle. The first SmartTOP roof controller was born.

The success of their first products in Germany and Europe prompted them in late 2004 to move operations to the USA, to be able to serve the American market as well as all other English speaking countries such as Australia, UK and South Africa from one central location. Their business has grown to a full-fledged international corporation with an office in California and a full line of innovative products as well as distributors and installation partners all over the globe.

Being highly specialized in the development and distribution of aftermarket roof- and comfort controllers since 2002 allows them to offer an unsurpassed level of competence and product quality. Their main goal is optimization of each individual product to a maximum in compatibility, usability and intuitive operation. They put greatest effort into development and quality checks of all their products to achieve this goal and meet all expectations of their customers.

The extraordinary success of their products is also based on the great communication with their customers, which usually already starts for each new product during the development and prototyping phase.
