BACKGROUND

With a stated mission of revolutionizing the transportation industry to make public transit a viable option for all regardless of assistance needs, the new principals at CTS Software quickly realized they had to stay on top of HIPAA compliance to ensure their software was safe to use and to gain credibility with prospective customers.

CTS was committed to proactively addressing HIPAA compliance in order to grow the company. The owners asked a trusted colleague to recommend a reputable information security and compliance partner, and were referred to Avertium.

CTS wanted to overhaul the processes surrounding their HIPAA compliance to ensure they were doing what was right for their customers. 

RESULTS

As a result of the services Avertium provided CTS Software, the company is able to confidently and credibly prove HIPAA certification. This empowers CTS to retain current customers and bid for new business. 

Foster says understanding HIPAA compliance is important for the success of CTS Software. 

“As a business owner, this was incredibly educational for me,” Foster said. “I knew HIPAA was important, but working with Avertium provided a deeper understanding of what it means to be compliant as it relates to my business and why it’s important.”
