HIPAA Consulting:
Why You Should work with an Expert

The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) was enacted in 1996 to create industry standards ensuring that the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of protected health information (PHI) is preserved. Protected health information is any individually identifiable health information categorized by the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) into 18 identifiers (i.e., name, address, biometrics, IP address, etc.). To secure PHI, healthcare organizations (covered entities) and the vendors that service them (business associates) must implement administrative, technical, and physical safeguards. However, HIPAA was created to apply to a wide variety of organizations; as such, HIPAA consulting services clarify which protections are “reasonable and appropriate” for your organization in line with HIPAA standards.

HIPAA Consulting with Compliancy Group

Compliancy Group was founded in 2005 by former HIPAA auditors; this expertise has allowed for a streamlined process for becoming HIPAA compliant. Through their many years of experience in the field, the founders realized that there were no HIPAA consulting services available for small-mid sized businesses. This gap in the market is now addressed by the experts at Compliancy Group.

  • HIPAA Audit Support, no client has ever failed an audit!
  • Streamlined Security Risk Analysis
  • Intuitive training for employees

Compliancy Group’s HIPAA consulting services include:

  • Self-audits: required to be completed annually, self-audits assess an organization’s administrative, physical, and technical safeguards to ensure that they are HIPAA compliant.
  • Remediation plans: once self-audits are completed, gaps in safeguards are identified. Identified gaps are closed with remediation plans.
  • Policies and procedures: define the proper use and disclosure of PHI. In addition, they dictate how employees should respond should they suspect a breach. Policies and procedures are reviewed annually to account for any changes in business processes.
  • Business associate agreements (BAA): are required to be executed with all business associates. A BAA lists what protections must be in place protecting PHI, how PHI is permitted to be used and disclosed, and who is responsible for reporting a breach should one occur.
  • Employee training: each year, employees will complete HIPAA training as required by law. Your organization’s policies and procedures are included in the training materials. Compliancy Group’s training is fully trackable, with each employee receiving unique login credentials. Within the training module, employees legally attest that they have read and understood all of the training material.
  • Breach reporting: HIPAA requires employees to have the means to report a suspected breach anonymously. Compliancy Group’s HIPAA consulting services include this ability, along with incident investigation management and tracking.
  • Audit response: in the event that you are subject to a HIPAA audit, our Audit Response TeamTM will provide you with all of the documentation necessary to prove your “good faith effort” towards HIPAA compliance. Over the years, we have supported our clients through several audits. No client has EVER failed an audit.
