HIPAA Audit

Check if your information security follows HIPAA!
What Is HIPAA Compliance?

HIPAA - The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA) - is a federal law that requires protecting patients' sensitive information from disclosure without the patients' knowledge or consent. The electronically protected health information (ePHI) must be stored, accessed, transferred, and processed in ways that do not allow it to fall into the wrong hands. HIPAA compliance is vital for companies operating in the healthcare industry because of the sensitive nature of health information and the steep punishments for being found non-compliant.

Why Do I Need HIPAA Compliance?

The penalties for noncompliance with HIPAA regulations are stiff. A single violation can range from $100 to $50,000 based on the level of negligence. Additionally, a maximum penalty of $1.5 million per year can apply for violations of an identical provision. This means that businesses that continually store or transfer ePHI in a non-compliant way are leaving themselves open to millions in damages. Penalties that high could permanently shut your doors.

Key Steps

Audit

During this step, we conduct an assessment of the potential risks and vulnerabilities of the Confidentiality, Integrity and Availability of ePHI, that your company collects, stores on your servers and digital devices, processes or electronically transmits against standards established by HIPAA-HITECH so that you can take the necessary steps to avoid penalties and data security breaches. We will ensure your business complies with over 120 safeguards of the HIPAA Privacy, Security, and Breach Notification Rules with our comprehensive compliance assessment and checklists. In addition, our team ensures your administrative, physical, and technical controls are up to date and meet HIPAA standards.

Discussion and Review

After the systems audit is completed, we determine whether any part of your organization is not HIPAA-HITECH compliant and will provide you with a comprehensive risk assessment report which you can use to make improvements necessary to conform to HIPAA-HITECH standards. All the details and findings are discussed and reviewed with a client to coordinate a course of action and define the next steps for control implementation.

Implementation and Certification

By analyzing your unique workflows and data paths, SecurityMetrics assessors help establish more efficient arrangements for your data environment to improve PHI security and remove costly, unnecessary steps from the process. Unfortunately, there is no single security solution that can be used to secure patient information. To keep patient information secure, you need to implement layered defenses – A range of protective mechanisms that slow down any potential attack and make data access more difficult. This is often referred to as defense in depth.
