Early in the 2000's John got heavily involved with HIPAA compliance as he desired to ensure his medical IT clients were compliant with the law. As he researched he realized most people had no idea how HIPAA compliance was to coincide with their computers. Over the years he has become an expert on HIPAA compliance, and as a byproduct, Meaningful Use compliance as it deals with the Security Risk Assessment which is a requirement started by Stage 1, that essentially will never end. His company, Med Tech USA LLC, provides private practice physicians with solutions to simplify the HIPAA compliance process.
