Healthcare providers, life sciences organizations and their service providers share an obligation to protect patient data. In today’s environment, with a rapidly evolving risk landscape, protecting data means not just complying with HIPAA but also adopting robust risk management practices.
Today’s consumers trust myriad providers with their health information, and those providers have an obligation to understand and implement data protections at every step of their operations. Protected healthcare data for today’s patients often lives in the cloud and is gathered from wearables, medical devices, printed documents and through real-time interaction with healthcare professionals.
Our team can help you assess risk and chart a path to strong regulatory compliance with HIPAA Privacy, Security and Breach Notification requirements. Our approach satisfies industry regulations and improves your overall security posture.
HIPAA Security Risk Analysis – Risk assessments are a requirement of the HIPAA Security Rule and meaningful use attestation. Unfortunately, the Office for Civil Rights (OCR) finds they are often done inadequately. Our team uses an approach based on the NIST 800-30 methodology. We take a comprehensive look at vulnerabilities and analyze your control posture to determine its level of residual risk.
HIPAA Security Rule Gap and Compliance Assessments – We assess your procedures to determine any areas of non-compliance. Our compliance assessments leverage the OCR Audit protocol and security frameworks to look beyond the design of a control by including detailed testing to ensure satisfactory safeguards have been defined, implemented, and are operating effectively.
