HIPAA / HITECH Compliance Services
Safeguard the privacy and security of Protected Health Information (PHI)
Our compliance and risk assessment services are based on the regulatory requirements of the HIPAA Privacy, Security, and Breach Notification Rules. These services represent the basic level of compliance for organizations that create, receive, maintain, or transmit protected health information (PHI). We provide a refined approach for data protection that satisfies industry regulations with deep-dive, technical capabilities that improve your security posture. We also help you deliver the highest level of data protection for your healthcare customers that gives them a competitive differentiator and increases revenue.
Our services include:
- HIPAA/HITECH security risk analysis and advisory – risk assessments are required by the HIPAA Security Rule and HITECH meaningful use attestation. These assessments are often overlooked or performed unsatisfactorily, as per HHS Office for Civil Rights (OCR) guidance. Our risk assessment approach is based upon the NIST 800-30 methodology and represents a comprehensive examination of vulnerabilities posed by today’s cyber threats and an analysis of your control maturity to determine the level of residual risk. Our HIPAA risk assessments have been successfully reviewed by OCR in several audits and breach investigations.
- HIPAA Privacy Rule assessment – HIPAA privacy assessments ensure compliance with the HIPAA Privacy Rule. We assess your compliance posture through the design, implementation, and effectiveness of controls. For areas where gaps or deficiencies are noted, we provide detailed recommendations to assist with remediation efforts.
- HIPAA Security Rule gap and compliance assessments – our gap assessment service is designed to highlight areas of non-compliance and heightened risk. If you’re looking to satisfy an audit or facing potential investigation by OCR, you will benefit from these compliance assessments that include detailed testing to ensure satisfactory safeguards have been defined, implemented, and are operating effectively. Assessments are linked to the requirements of the HIPAA Security and Breach Notification Rules and are based on our tested approach that leverages the OCR audit protocol, industry frameworks (e.g., NIST 800-53), and personal experiences working with the OCR.
- Custom training, workshops, and advisory services – we understand that each organization faces unique challenges, so we have healthcare experts on hand to assist with all HIPAA-related needs.
