Founded in 2004, Southwest Recovery Services, Inc. (SWRS) is a debt collection company based in Dallas, Texas. The founder, Stephen Dietz, has over 25 years hands-on experience working in the receivables management industry.
Since inception SWRS has helped doctor’s offices and other heath care practices covered under Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) increase their cashflow with our medical debt recovery service. However demand for our medical collections service skyrocketed when the department of Health and Human Services (HHS) began enforcing new Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health (HITECH) rules.
Under the new HIPAA HITEC rules HHS has broad discretionary powers to investigate and assess up to $1.5 million in civil penalties on companies who outsource services to non-compliant HIPAA Covered Entities (CEs). In the most egregious cases HHS is required to refer matters to justice department for federal prosecution.
SRWS has always taken data security seriously so it only made sense the we would implement additional safeguards such as disclosure notification, data encryption, and information storage protocols required to help insure HIPAA HITEC compliance.
Healthcare providers covered under HIPAA have very unique needs. SWRS’s Medical Collection team was among the first and remains one of the few debt recovery services with the technology, human resources, and technology needed to increase your cash flow while mitigating your HIPAA HITEC compliance risk.
At SWRS we are committed to improving your cashflow and peace of mind.
