HIPAA Audit

Ensure the electronic protected health information(ePHI) is protected in compliance with HIPAA.

Security demystified for healthcare industry.

Today’s increasingly interconnected Information Technology (IT) infrastructure is under the continual increasing threat of unauthorized access. As more and more sensitive citizen data is collected, stored, used, and shared each day, a strong security risk management approach is necessary to comply with the Federal, Internal Revenue Service (IRS), and other key regulatory statutes such as the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA). The increasing sophistication of cyber-attacks and publicized data breaches in the state sector further underscore the importance of a strong security posture and risk management approach.
In addition, increased enforcement and penalties resulting from the HITECH Act have caused many organizations to revisit their readiness to address the HIPAA Privacy and Security Rules as well as those changes proposed by the HITECH Act.

When should an organization be considering an audit

An organization needs to ask themselves some of these key questions and if the answer to this is “yes” then it is time to consider for an HIPAA audit.
Does the organization need to understand where the protected health information is stored or transferred?
Are the organization’s privacy and security policies and procedures out of date?
Does the organization have difficulty in listing out all third parties with whom it may share patient or health benefit participant information?
Is the organization a Business Associate or a service/solution provider of a Covered Entity?
Has the organization encountered a breach of protected health information recently?
