Doctor of Optometry Passes HIPAA Audit
Dr. David Golden is a Doctor of Optometry and the CEO and co-founder of the PERC Alliance. He’s a long time user of The Guard–Compliancy Group’s all-in-one cloud-based HIPAA compliance tracking app.
PERC Alliance is dedicated to helping independent eye care providers lower their cost of goods thru group discounts and supply chain efficiencies, build better and stronger businesses for their patients, and connecting the independent to health care delivery systems.
Dr. Golden’s practice was hit with a HIPAA complaint that lead to an Office for Civil Rights (OCR) investigation. In the event of a data breach or HIPAA incident, all health care providers are mandated by HIPAA regulation to conduct an internal investigation and report the breach to the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) OCR.
OCR is the enforcement arm for HHS HIPAA investigations. When it launches an investigation in response to a reported breach, OCR will ask for documentation of an organization’s compliance program surrounding the cause of the breach. That means that if the breach is triggered by a privacy or security incident, OCR will request documentation surrounding an organization’s internal HIPAA audits, remediation efforts, policies and procedures, and employee training.
By working with Compliancy Group, Dr. Golden and his team were able to demonstrate everything that OCR requested just using the documentation that comes with The Guard.
