HIPAA Security For Federally Qualified Health Centers

partner-headerYou may not be aware, but Federally Qualified Health Centers are required to complete a HIPAA Security Risk Analysis.

Federal and state funding for FQHCs is increasing at a double-digit rate as these types of clinics continue opening their doors to those in need of care. These entities qualify for Medicare and Medicaid funding so they are able to help the underprivileged and under-served areas.

Because of what you do and who you help as an FQHC, you are under higher scrutiny for HIPAA compliance than the typical covered entity.

But don’t let that scare you. HIPAA One® is the answer to your HIPAA compliance problems.

HIPAA One meets the requirement under 164.308(a)(1)(ii)(A). This HIPAA security standard states that your FQHC must put policies and procedures in place to prevent, uncover, contain and remediate any security violations. It also says you must conduct a risk analysis to assess any vulnerabilities or potential risks with the availability, confidentiality and integrity of ePHI.

With our HIPAA Security Risk Analysis software, you are able to check how compliant you are. Below are some reasons why your FQHC should choose HIPAA One®.

  • Simple to learn and use so you don’t have to be a HIPAA expert.
  • Easily and efficiently perform a self-assessment of your FQHC.
  • Complete your analysis in a few days, instead of a few weeks.
  • Free up your time so you can focus on and help those patients who come to your FQHC.

There’s no question your FQHC needs a HIPAA Security Risk Analysis to ensure you’re HIPAA compliant, and there’s no better or more affordable tool to use than HIPAA One®.
