HIPAA Audit

We understand that in today’s world, cyber security is simply not an option; it is a mandate. Security helps to preserve citizen trust by mitigating the risk of unauthorized use or loss of sensitive information. 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.

    The following describes WeSecure'shigh level approach for undertaking anHIPAA assessment and security implementation project.

  • Inventory and prioritize business processes and applications to identify areas of focus
  • Identify the “real issues” that may affect the organizations’ ability to address HIPAA
  • Work with key IT and business stakeholders to assess and prioritize risks to the organization
  • Establish implementation budget, schedule, and program management structure
  • Select and implement administrative, physical, and technical solutions based on risk prioritization
  • Enable an HIPAA sustainment and self-monitoring process

    Key questions to ask:

  • 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  • Are the organization’s privacy and security policies and procedures out of date?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?
  • Establish implementation budget, schedule, and program management structure
  • Select and implement administrative, physical, and technical solutions based on risk prioritization
  • 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?
  • If you have answered “Yes” to any of these questions, it may be time to consider a HIPAA Assessment.
