DALLAS, Oct. 16 /PRNewswire/ -- Phoenix Health Systems, Inc. (Phoenix), a national provider of healthcare strategic consulting, IT outsourcing and revenue cycle management services, recently completed a HIPAA Security engagement with PinnacleHealth of Harrisburg, PA.

"PinnacleHealth was pleased to work with Phoenix to document the commitment PinnacleHealth has made to ensuring PinnacleHealth meets or exceeds the HIPAA Security Requirements," said Steven Roth, Vice President and Chief Information Officer of PinnacleHealth. "Phoenix provided a quality assessment, but what set them apart is their ability to communicate the requirements to all levels of the organization, from clinicians, to administration, and to Information Services personnel."
