Altient And HipaaManager Announce Joint-Marketing Agreement

SAN DIEGO, Jan. 5 /PRNewswire/ -- Altient Corporation, a leading provider of unmatched end-to-end technology-based connectivity, infrastructure, and application solutions to physician practices, and HipaaManager, an organizationally endorsed HIPAA assessment and compliance software company have announced a joint-marketing Agreement.

The latest regulation regarding the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA), passed in 1996, mandates physicians and other healthcare providers to make best efforts to implement reliable security solutions for their Electronic Protected Health Information (EPHI). With these regulations, as well as the gaining adoption of EHRs, there is a greater need for technology infrastructure to run, manage, and effectively support the latest healthcare technology tools in the physician's practice.

Altient provides the innovative CareReach Network(SM), a bundled technology foundation that incorporates software, hardware, managed connectivity, a technology foundation, security, and support solutions to address the needs of the physician market.

Uniquely, Altient successfully implements and manages many solutions, acting as an outsourced IT department locally, yet pro-actively maintaining the integrity of their networks, products, and services on a national scale."
