Some of Our Many Great Partner-Clients
“Proteus Consulting was recommended to us, following our data breach. Alan was very responsive and easy to work with, arriving onsite to help us prepare required US Health and Human Services (HHS) investigation artifacts. He wrote and helped us incorporate updated security and privacy policies and procedures and delivered a timely risk assessment project. While awaiting our HHS response, Alan checked in with us at least monthly to ensure that we were able to continue the recommended actions to reduce our risk and improve HIPAA compliance. Proteus Consulting directly impacted our ability to avoid an Office of Civil Rights corrective action plan and we emphatically recommend their services.”
– John Gleichman, HIPAA Security Officer and IT Director, Sound Generations
“It is easy to see why a healthcare company should partner with Proteus Consulting. Alan immediately impressed our team with his journeyman HIPAA knowledge.

Proteus distinguishes themselves by delivering solutions and solid project management skills, while maintaining a respectful-but-personal approach to coaching people. I count on Proteus to deliver work consistently within budget and provide us tools that help improve our program’s readiness.”

“Alan is an absolute pleasure to work with! He provides our staff mature, expert-level HIPAA Security Rule and information services management guidance. Alan explains each step of the process in a way that all involved could understand.

Alan has offered his continued assistance and support as we move through the corrective action process."
