“Aultman Hospital in Ohio provides a broad spectrum of healthcare, with renowned specialties in emergency, acute,and primary care. The privacy and security of patient information is of vital importance to the organization.

“As a Business Associate based in California, Episource is very sensitive about any U.S. healthcare client information it processes at its offshore facility. With a deep commitment to ensure complete HIPAA and HITECH Act compliance, Episource selected ecfirst as the optimal organization to partner with for a comprehensive and thorough analysis of its policies, procedures, and practices to meet U.S. federal and State mandates. Episource is looking to adopt the ISO 27000 as the broad security framework for its internal compliance requirements â€“ and the efforts of ecfirst have positioned us exceptionally well in this area.”
"I want to state categorically that your work and that of the ecfirst team throughout this process has been exemplary, as has been the finished product. I would not hesitate to recommend you and ecfirst to colleagues at other PPs. Rarely have I been so impressed with the knowledge, professionalism and quality of work as I have been with both of the HIPAA audits your firm performed for PPGG. Thanks again for all of your teamâ€™s hard work."
