We offer different services to help Covered Entities and Business Associates become HIPAA compliant with the HIPAA Privacy and Security rules. Select any of our following HIPAA compliance consulting services OR product to meet your HIPAA compliance.
Risk analysis is often regarded as the first step toward HIPAA compliance. Risk analysis is a required implementation specification under the Security Management Process standard of the Administrative Safeguards portion of the HIPAA Security Rule as per Section 164.308(a)(1). Covered Entities will benefit from an effective Risk Analysis and Risk Management program beyond just being HIPAA compliant. Compliance with HIPAA is not optional... it is mandatory, to avoid penalties.
The HIPAA Security Rule 164.308(a)(7)(i) identifies Contingency Plan as a standard under Administrative Safeguards. HIPAA Contingency plans address the “availability” security principle. The availability principle addresses threats related to business disruption –so that authorized individuals have access to vital systems and information when required.
The Security Rule requires that Covered Entities periodically conduct an evaluation of their security safeguards to demonstrate and document their compliance with the entity’s security policy and the requirements of the Security Rule.
If you need a no obligation proposal for any of the above services, feel free to contact us at Bob@hipaatraining.net or call (515) 865-4591.
