Nordis Direct Appoints HIPAA Compliance Officer

CORAL SPRINGS, Fla., Jan. 14, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Nordis Direct has announced the appointment of Natalie Foster Johnson to the post of HIPAA Compliance Officer. Ms. Johnson joined Nordis Direct in May 2014 as a project manager for the Expresso business unit. She specializes in web-based applications, project management, change management and business analysis; holding previous positions with Citrix, JM Family Enterprises, Inc., and independent consulting with NFJ Solutions, Inc.

As Nordis Direct continues to roll out its communications management and e-bill presentment and payment platforms to medical billing providers, hospitals and other healthcare businesses, protecting consumer health information is of critical importance. As a HIPAA-compliant organization, Nordis Direct must conform to the guidelines and compliance requirements set forth by the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA), established to ensure increased security and accountability with regard to a patient's Protected Health Information (PHI). To ensure that Nordis Direct is safeguarding the information entrusted to them and their clients, Ms. Johnson is working with senior management at Nordis Direct to ensure proper protocols and HIPAA compliance programs are in place throughout the organization. "It's really about doing the right thing for our clients," said Johnson. "Part of my responsibility is identifying potential risks before they happen, implementing the proper safeguards and procedures to minimize these possibilities, and providing on-going education for the Nordis Direct workforce."

"The medical industry continues to be a promising market for the Expresso platform for both critical communications and revenue cycle management. While this opens the door for greater opportunities, it also requires a heightened responsibility for managing protected information," stated Ronnie Selinger, President/CEO of Nordis Direct. "We are very pleased to have Natalie Johnson leading the charge to ensure that Nordis is compliant with HIPAA privacy and security requirements on every level."
