NEW YORK, NY – Webair, a leading provider of Colocation and Managed solutions, today announces the appointment of Dr. Michael L. Brody as HIPAA Compliance Specialist. As Webair’s healthcare Subject Matter Expert (SME), Dr. Brody provides invaluable insight into current healthcare information technology practices through regular contribution of online health technology content and assistance in overall product and service strategy. He is also instrumental in speaking with Webair’s healthcare customers and technical engineers to help plan and architect technical solutions that comply with various Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) and security requirements.

With more than 28 years of experience in the field of medicine, Dr. Brody currently operates a privateDr.Brody practice in Southold, New York, and is a staff Podiatrist and Clinical Instructor at the Veterans Administration Medical Center, where he founded the Podiatry residency program. An expert in his field, Dr. Brody has travelled across the nation educating many businesses and healthcare organizations in the field of Health Information Technology (HIT) and Meaningful Use.

Dr. Brody has been involved in the HIV Intervention Science Training Program (HISTP), Health Level Seven International (HL7), the Certification Commission for Healthcare Information Technology (CCHIT), and the Standards & Interoperability (S&I) Framework, all of which were integral in developing national standards for Meaningful Use. Dr. Brody will share his knowledge of HIT to Webair’s advantage. He is also a longstanding member and a regular speaker at Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society (HIMSS) tradeshows and events, which include some of the largest and most important healthcare IT conferences in the world.

“The healthcare industry is in a constant state of flux, necessitating custom-built Cloud and Colocation HIT solutions to meet the unique needs of each healthcare customer,” explains Sagi Brody, Chief Technology Officer of Webair. “These tailor-made solutions require special considerations made to security strategy during the engineering process. In addition to being an expert contributor to this process, Dr. Brody is also an invaluable addition to our growing team of experts as Webair continues to expand and enhance our offerings within the healthcare IT sector.”

In 2013, he was appointed Chief Compliance Officer of ICS Software, a provider of Electronic Health Records (EHR) software to doctors and medical practices, and also serves as President and CEO of TLD Systems, a team of specialists in the fields of medicine, law and technology with the common goal of making HIPAA compliance affordable for the independent practitioner.
