About Us

 

Kardon knows that Privacy & Security is a Full-Time Job

Ensuring our clients are informed, protected, and secure.

 

Founded by Donna Grindle, Kardon is the culmination of years of experience providing healthcare technology services and witnessing healthcare providers struggle with effectively protecting patient information and staying within the rules implemented by the Office for Civil Rights (OCR) within the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS).

Seeing the challenges providers faced – and the myriad firms who claimed to help with cookie-cutter approaches that made clients feel better but didn’t truly address the issues – Kardon designed services around the unique needs and ever-changing threats to your security and privacy. Going above and beyond, Kardon works with covered entities and business associates to develop and implement appropriate policies, procedures and trainings that ensure they are doing all they can to meet, and even sometimes exceed, HIPAA and HITECH requirements.

Additionally, the team also provides regular compliance updates, insights and tips through their Small Provider HIPAA blog and their Help Me With HIPAA podcast, and Donna is a frequent speaker at conferences and meetings as well. On top of that, they truly love what they do and it shows in the way they deliver their services.
