I personally have had my family’s information breached as a result of the Utah Department of Health’s negligent breach last year. So it is easy to conclude our data, and identities, for our friends and families need to be taken seriously as any other risk

“Our clients have been requesting HIPAA Policies and Procedures and Privacy help in addition to covering HIPAA Security requirements per the OCR’s Audit Protocol.” Continues Steven, “After years of Healthcare security experience, tremendous amounts of research and successful release of our HIPAA One Security web-based solution, we are extremely excited to be offering these new services to the Healthcare industry.”
HIPAA Privacy has been Federal Law since April 14 of 2003. However, very few healthcare organizations have actually performed a HIPAA compliance assessment or risk analysis.
HIPAA privacy compliance is different from HIPAA security because in addition to the Office of Civil Rights (OCR) investigating patient complaints enforcing Meaningful Use Core Measure 15, anyone can file a lawsuit under HIPAA privacy rights.
Policies, procedures, notices and Business Associate Agreements are paramount to proactively insulate Healthcare organizations from threats and liabilities.
“We treat our clients’ ePHI data and PHI as though it were our own. I personally have had my family’s information breached as a result of the Utah Department of Health’s negligent breach last year. So it is easy to conclude our data, and identities, for our friends and families need to be taken seriously as any other risk of serious injury.”
To keep abreast of the Final HIPAA Omnibus rule and each individual State’s HIPAA Privacy laws can be a daunting challenge. In addition to translating the complex rules into practical processes takes policies, procedures, training, measures and clinic experience.
Modern Compliance Solutions takes the complexity out of the HIPAA Privacy laws and streamlines a Mock Audit process into checklists, gap analysis, risk analysis and remediation planning. This process highlights gaps in compliance, risks associated with those gaps and a reasonable tasks and activities towards compliance.
