As a result of the changes driven by The HITECH (Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health) Act, all Covered Entities and Business Associates must be compliant and completing a formal Security Risk Analysis is a crucial step in doing so. Enforcement of compliance has increased significantly over the last year and includes the following:
- Mandatory Audits
- Business Associates Must Comply With New Laws
- Subcontractors Must Comply With New Laws
- Non-compliance Fines Are Being Enforced
- Stiffer Penalties
- Jurisdiction Provided To State Attorneys General To File Civil Actions Against Violators
Because of this, it is more important now, than ever before, to build your organizations risk management program on a methodical and proven software solution.
Mock HIPAA Security Risk Analysis Software (Self-Assessment)
After working in HIPAA Security since 2006 in Health I.T. environments, we began focusing on the HIPAA Security Rule translating the complex requirements and rules into pragmatic, repeatable process. Married with medical workflow and real-world experience, HIPAA One was originally designed so many consultants could perform the HIPAA SRA process in a consistent and complete fashion improving quality. We took cues from the PCI industry’s best self-assessment questionnaires (PCI-SAQ) and incorporated these evolutions into our first release. Although it does help to have security experience to use HIPAA One®, it is designed so anyone with attention to detail can successfully complete the process. Reporting, documentation are all automated providing all the features spreadsheets don’t while providing build-in controls to ensure the process is complete and satisfies all requirements.
HIPAA Security Consulting
Since 2005, we have provided many onsite HIPAA Security Risk Audits for Hospitals and Medical Clinic organizations. Our proven onsite services provide value-add over self-assessment: recently we have successfully defended one of our clients through an ONC investigation instigated by a patient complaint – this proves our process and standard documentation works. With our HIPAA Security Risk Analysis process, our certified and insured services can drive the process with your staff and deliver most on-site Risk Analysis within 4 days or less. Large Hospitals or Medical clinics with many locations (that contain ePHI) will take longer. We use HIPAA One® for onsite HIPAA Risk Analysis to ensure a transparent, efficient and complete process.
