â€śWe conducted a search for the right firm to conduct our HIPAA Privacy and Security self-audit and selected ecfirst because of their exceptional focus on HIPAA rules and regulations.
Right from the start, I was very impressed with the ecfirst certification program. The training is thorough and the instructors are very knowledgeable. They are very detail-oriented with their findings and specific with their recommendations.
