About Our Process

  • Self-audits: To measure your organization’s compliance with HIPAA, you must complete annual self-audits. There are six required audits for HIPAA covered entities (CEs), and five for business associates (BAs).
  • Gap Identification and Remediation: Completing self-audits allows you to identify areas in which your safeguards are lacking. Gap identification enables you to create remediation plans to address deficiencies.
  • Policies and Procedures: As stated above, policies and procedures dictate the proper uses and disclosures of PHI. Policies and procedures must be customized for your organization to apply directly to your business processes, and must be reviewed annually to account for any changes in business operations. Failure to customize policies and procedures leaves your organization vulnerable as PHI may not be fully secured.
  • Employee Training and Tracking: Also mentioned above, employee’s must be trained annually on your organization’s policies and procedures, as well as HIPAA standards. Employees must legally attest that they have read and understand the material that they were trained on. The ability to track employees’ training ensures that all employees are trained in a timely manner.
  • Business Associate Management: Organizations working with protected health information are required to vet their business associates. Vetting BAs ensures that they are protecting the PHI that they create, receive, transmit, maintain, or store on your behalf. You can vet your BAs by sending them a vendor questionnaire. Similar to self-audits, vendor questionnaires assess the gaps in the business associate’s safeguards. To work with the BA, the vendor must agree to address identified gaps with remediation efforts. If the BA is unwilling to implement remediation plans, you should choose another vendor to work with. Additionally, they must be willing to sign a business associate agreement (BAA). A BAA is a legal document that dictates the safeguards the BA must have in place. It also limits the liability of each signing party as it requires each party to manage their own HIPAA compliance.
  • Incident Management: If your organization is the victim of a healthcare breach, you must report the breach. If the breach affects less than 500 patients, you are required to report the incident within 60 days from the end of the calendar year to affected patients and the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS). If the breach affects 500 or more patients, you must report it within 60 days of discovery to affected patients, the HHS, and the media.
