Protect Your Organization and Your Patients
Ensuring HIPAA compliance is vital for healthcare industry professionals. HIPAA requires organizations that handle protected health information to regularly review the administrative, physical, and technical safeguards they have in place to protect the security of the information. Our HIPAA Security Health Check can provide you with a better understanding of your organization’s current ability to protect your sensitive data from loss or leakage.
A HIPAA health check will provide valuable insight into how well the covered entity has implemented the controls necessary to be compliant with the HIPAA safeguards.
- Reporting will help identify where any gaps exist and assist with prioritizing remediation.
- With a complete HIPAA health check, the covered entity will be able to bring protected assets and health related data into compliance.
- A review process that examines existing, documented policies and procedures outlines where you may be deficient in compliance with the HIPAA rules.
Are You in Compliance?
The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) is a federally-implemented and nationally-applicable standard in the healthcare industry. It is pertinent to all entities handling Patient Health Information (PHI). The focus of the HIPAA Security Health Check is on the HIPAA Security Rule–specifically 45 CFR Part 160 and subparts A and C of Part 164.
The HIPAA Security Rule establishes national standards to protect individuals’ electronic personal health information that is created, received, used, or maintained by a covered entity. The Security Rule requires appropriate administrative, physical, and technical safeguards to ensure the confidentiality, integrity, and security of electronic protected health information.
