SHREVEPORT, LA: Seaside Healthcare, a Shreveport, Louisiana based behavioral health corporation with locations across the south and southeastern United States, has earned the Compliancy Group’s HIPAA Seal of Compliance by completing their proprietary HIPAA compliance process.

The Compliancy Group, a nationally recognized company that helps healthcare organizations streamline their HIPAA compliance processes, has recognized Seaside Healthcare as having taken all necessary steps to prove its good faith effort to achieve compliance with the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA). Through the use of Compliancy Group’s proprietary HIPAA solution, The Guard™, Seaside Healthcare and their locations across the United States can now easily and more fully track their compliance program. The Seal of Compliance as earned by Seaside Healthcare, is issued to healthcare organizations that have implemented an effective HIPAA compliance program through the use of The Guard.

Franklin Roemer, CEO of Seaside Healthcare commented on the achievement, “Our company is honored to have earned the Compliancy Group’s Seal of Compliance which affirms our commitment to maintaining the highest standard of adherence to HIPAA’s regulations and processes.  This achievement assures our patients across our many operating locations across the south and southeastern United States that their privacy and security is recognized and treated with the highest standards in the delivery of Behavioral Healthcare services.”

HIPAA is made up of a set of regulatory standards governing the security, privacy, and integrity of sensitive healthcare data called protected health information (PHI). If vendors who service healthcare clients come into contact with PHI in any way, those vendors must be HIPAA compliant.

In earning this recognition, Seaside Healthcare participated in the Compliancy Group’s Implementation Program, adhering to the necessary regulatory standards outlined in the HIPAA Privacy Rule, Security Rule, Breach Notification Rule, Omnibus Rule, and HITECH.

Seaside Healthcare’s Franklin Roemer adds, “Seaside Healthcare is built upon a foundation of excellence in  behavioral healthcare service delivery and practices the highest level of patient privacy and quality across our many locations.  We are committed to meeting and exceeding all HIPAA requirements and regulations as affirmed by this recognition.”

According to the Compliancy Group, healthcare clients and patients are becoming more aware of HIPAA compliance requirements and how the regulation protects their personal information. Forward-thinking providers like Seaside Healthcare have sought the Seal of Compliance to differentiate their services and to assure their patients that only the highest standards are practiced by the company.

Seaside Healthcare LLC was established in 2009 as an owner, developer, and operator of behavioral healthcare facilities in Louisiana. Today, Seaside Healthcare’s multi-state network of programs offers a full complement of behavioral health services including psychiatric treatment services, substance use disorder rehabilitation and treatment of dual diagnosis.

Seaside’s mission is to improve the lives of their patients and the surrounding community by providing effective, cost-considerate behavioral health services delivered with unmatched dignity and respect.  The company provides service locations across Louisiana, Texas, Georgia, South Carolina, North Carolina and Virginia.
