Aegify and PolicyMedical Releases a BA Manager Solution
CUPERTINO, CA: Aegify, provider of Cloud-based software-as-a-service (SaaS) solutions announces the release of a new solution to help healthcare organizations manage their network of Business Associates and Vendors through a partnership with PolicyMedical.
PolicyMedical serves healthcare industry by offering policy procedure and guideline management solutions. With increasing regulatory requirements and increased pressure to prevent security attacks, healthcare providers are understandably challenged to establish optimal frameworks to address these growing demands.

With the partnership, Aegify will further extend its Security, Risk and Compliance solution by offering Aegify’s BA manager solution, which provides a comprehensive solution to easily manage all of their Business Associate’s/Vendor’s Security, Risk and Compliance status, including managing Business Associate Agreements. Future plans include the incorporation of Aegify’s extensive database of HIPPA policies and integration to the PolicyMedical Contract Manager solution.
“New regulations put greater burden on healthcare providers to make sure their Business Associates are following HIPAA guidelines for security and compliance” says Saud Juman, President and CEO of PolicyMedical. “This value add offering will help assure that our customers can more effectively manage this requirement”.
