Round Rock, TX, July 25, 2017 – On May 5th, Austin Recovery celebrated its 50th Anniversary with a luncheon gala at the Shalom Austin Jewish Community Center in Austin, TX. At the event, they recognized Third Rock, Incorporated and its partner Nivola Healthcare Solutions for their work and donations supporting the organization’s HIPAA compliance activities and related information security practices.
Austin Recovery requested Third Rock’s and Nivola Healthcare Solutions’ support to reestablish their HIPAA compliance baseline after a major business restructuring in 2016. The business restructuring resulted from Austin Recovery’s separation from The Council on Alcohol and Drugs Houston, which had merged with Austin Recovery in 2013. Ms. Laura Sovine, Austin Recovery’s Executive Director, recognized that the operational impacts of the restructuring necessitated a review of the organization’s information privacy and security practices.
Third Rock and Nivola Healthcare Solutions performed a comprehensive security risk assessment, provided updated HIPAA policies & procedures, and prioritized corrective actions. An online risk management plan, cybersecurity guide and recommendations for more efficiently managing the organization’s information stores and maintaining HIPAA compliance were also provided to Austin Recovery. Robert Felps, CEO of Third Rock, stated, “We are proud to be supporting such a successful and important local organization as Austin Recovery and to be helping them protect their clients.”
