Hanger Orthopedic Group Chooses Agiliance For Its GRC Platform


Agiliance RiskVision Policy and Compliance Applications Provide a Flexible Way to Manage
Corporate Security Awareness Portals and IT SOX, HIPAA and PCI Regulations

San Jose, California – February 23, 2011 – Agiliance®, Inc., the leading independent provider of Governance, Risk and Compliance (GRC) solutions, today announced that Austin, Texas-based Hanger Orthopedic Group selected Agiliance for its GRC platform. The Agiliance RiskVision Policy Manager gives the Hanger Orthopedic Group a portal to create, manage and distribute corporate policies and the RiskVision Compliance Manager provides continuous compliance monitoring across a range of regulations, starting with IT SOX, HIPAA and PCI. Hanger purchased the Agiliance RiskVision software through a mutual partner, the Broadleaf Group of Houston, Texas.

The Hanger Orthopedic Group manages a U.S.-based network of over 675 patient care centers and provides services to another 4,000 rehabilitation centers. They sought a platform for policy and compliance that delivered accurate multi-site information centralization and efficiency via automation. Agiliance demonstrated strong flexibility, usability and product forethought in a two-week trial against IT GRC vendor competition. Policies can be imported from Microsoft Office or written from scratch, and then collaborated on from within Agiliance RiskVision to edit, version, publish and track for attestation. Agiliance’s Common Control Framework (CCF) uses various risk frameworks including ISO, NIST, COBIT and Octave, to manage multi-regulatory programs with a “test-once, comply many times” approach. Assets and other entities are easily classified, profiled, grouped and dynamically assigned business criticality risk levels, automating scoping and monitoring, which is required for most recent regulatory guidelines.

Said Agiliance CEO Joe Fantuzzi, “As a caring healthcare leader, the Hanger Orthopedic Group did thorough diligence before making its GRC platform decision. We are honored to have been selected, and continue to develop HIPAA and HITECH solutions to address healthcare privacy and compliance.”
