HIPAA Compliance

We help make HIPAA Compliance simple

What is HIPAA?

What is the HIPAA Security Rule

The HIPAA Security rule is part of the broader Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act. The security rule mandates that organizations dealing with Personal Health Information (PHI) take reasonable safeguards to protect the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of that information. The Security Rule is divided into four discrete sections: Administrative Safeguards, Physical Safeguards, Technical Safeguards, and Policies, Procedures and Documentation requirements. Penalties for non-compliance can be steep and include tens of thousands of dollars in fines per violation along with the potential for jail-time. Making sure your organization is fully compliant with the HIPAA Security Rule is critical for your business success.

The Process

CyberOpz HIPAA Approach

Three steps to begin your compliance journey.

Step 1

Full Scope HIPAA Security Review

We begin each engagement by performing the SecurityOpz Full-Scope Review. This allows us to identify all of your current IT assets, current security tools, types of information being stored, and processes around security. At the conclusion of this review we will be able to present you with a gap assessment showing where you are, and where you need to be headed and a roadmap on how we intend to take you there.

Step 2

Implement Security Controls

During the implementation phase, we work closely with your IT team to execute the roadmap presented at the end of the full-scope review. We will work with you to update or add any technology required, as well as to develop a full-suite of policies, processes, and procedures. At the end of the implementation phase you will be left with a fully functional, and compliant cybersecurity program.

Step 3

FINAL HIPAA SECURITY REVIEW

During the final phase we review your new cybersecurity program to ensure that it is compliant with the HIPAA Security rule. We will cover new processes, technologies, and data policies to ensure that you are ready in the event of a HIPAA audit. Even after our program is complete we will always be available to assist in the event of a security incident or other concerns.

The following entities must comply with HIPAA.

  • Health plans
  • Most health care providers, including doctors, clinics, hospitals, nursing homes, and pharmacies
  • Health care clearinghouses

These businesses are considered “covered entities” and must comply with HIPAA. Covered entities businesess associates must also comply with HIPAA regulations. For example, if you are an IT services provider and manage the IT for a hospital network or dental office, you must also comply with HIPAA regulations. This is not legal or compliance advice and we recommend business associates consult with a lawyer regarding any compliance questions.

 

Assesments

Each assessment and each client is unique. A security assessment typically takes 30 minutes to four hours for a small business with low complexity compliance requirements.

We offer CMMC, HIPAA HITECH, NIST 171 assistance and other cybersecurity compliance services.
