ConvergeOne Achieves HIPAA Compliance
EAGAN, Minn., June 4, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- ConvergeOne Holdings, Inc. (NASDAQ: CVON, CVONW) ("ConvergeOne" or the "Company"), a leading global IT services provider of collaboration and technology solutions, today announced it has met all the requirements toward attaining the HITRUST certification, and is officially HIPAA compliant.
Almost every aspect of modern healthcare including record keeping, information management, and workflow--from scheduling to admission, discharge, and transfer--relies on digital services and Electronic Patient Health Information (ePHI). Medical providers and payers that fail to protect ePHI place themselves at severe risk for penalties and fines should there be a breach of confidentiality.

McKenna Jr., Chairman and CEO, ConvergeOne. "Our data centers have been audited and ConvergeOne has obtained an independent HIPAA compliant report confirming our adherence to strict standards, both physical and operational, that handle ePHI properly and securely."
