HIPAA and HITECH health care compliance consulting
Data security and privacy solutions for health care companies
Compliance with the detailed requirements of the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) and Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health (HITECH) Act regulations is a challenging and time-consuming task. These regulations are in place to protect the personal information of patients and compliance is mandatory. However, many organizations are short on staff or simply don't have the resources with the appropriate knowledge to manage the required compliance demands and address data security concerns.
We use our knowledge of the unique regulatory challenges your organization faces to help you comply with existing guidelines and identify where any security gaps may exist. Our health care data security consultants have extensive experience in evaluating organizational processes to help ensure they are compliant with sufficient controls in place. We deliver data security and privacy solutions to a variety of organizations. Some of our health care compliance consulting services include:
- Readiness review: We help you determine how ready your organization is to comply with existing regulations, including reviewing documentation, interviewing selected managers and making general observations.
- Compliance assessment: We initiate an assessment that includes an in-depth review and analysis of policies, procedures and documentation, interviews with staff, and testing existing processes and controls.
- Risk assessment: We perform an accurate, thorough assessment of compliance with HIPAA/HITECH regulations by comparing potential risks and vulnerabilities to the confidentiality, integrity and availability of protected health information.
- Policies and procedures update: We assist you in adding to or updating your HIPAA/HITECH policies and procedures based on findings from our readiness review or compliance assessment. Our experienced consultants can also assist in developing and implementing these policies and procedures.
- Self-assessment training: We utilize industry best practices to train your personnel on how to conduct a HIPAA/HITECH compliance self-assessment. Training can be customized to attendees' experience levels.
