A Comprehensive HIPAA Compliance Solution for VDA Members

VDA Services Announces Endorsement of Abyde

The VDA Services Board of Directors is pleased to announce the endorsement of Abyde, a leader in software-based HIPAA compliance solutions for the healthcare industry.  Following a thorough review of the marketplace, the Abyde solution differentiated itself by offering the easiest way for any sized dental practice to implement and sustain comprehensive HIPAA compliance programs. The revolutionary approach to HIPAA compliance guides providers through mandatory HIPAA requirements such as the Risk Analysis, HIPAA training for doctors and staff, managing Business Associate Agreements, customized policies and more.

VDA Services, a subsidiary of the Virginia Dental Association, works to identify solutions to help VDA member dental practices run efficiently while also providing valuable members-only benefits.  Exclusive discounted pricing will be offered to all VDA Members who sign up with Abyde.  “The Virginia Dental Association strives to empower the dental community through innovation and our collaboration with Abyde falls perfectly in line with that vision,” said VDA President Dr. Frank Iuorno, Jr. “We're confident that our members will find Abyde’s solution and team to be the total-package in alleviating their HIPAA stress.”

With cyber security breaches and ransomware attacks increasing in recent years, personal patient information is a valuable target for cyber-attacks.  “Our partnership with VDA Services emphasizes our joint commitment in protecting dental practices from the continued rise in cyber threats and patient complaints seen within the healthcare industry over recent months,” said Matt DiBlasi, President of Abyde. “We are thrilled to be a part of the VDA’s proactive approach in helping their members avoid hefty HIPAA penalties as well as assist in safeguarding their patients’ sensitive information through a simplified compliance program.”
