What Is HIPAA?

HIPAA stands for Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act which was passed by congress to become the law in 1996.   The goal of HIPAA is to safeguard PHI (Protected Health Information) from any unauthorized access to protect patient privacy. PHI is basically patient information which under HIPAA is protected by the Federal Government.  In the IT world, HIPAA most often refers to the Security portion of the HIPAA rules. The security rule includes a series of guidlines and regulations which provides security provisions to ensure data privacy and protects patients’ medical information.

Do You Need To Be HIPAA Compliant?

The short answer is if you work in any healthcare capacity (i.e. Optometrists, Dentists, all MDs, etc.) you need to be HIPAA compliant. You are a “Covered Entity” according to HIPAA if you are a:

  • A health plan
  • A health care clearinghouse
  • A health care provider who conduct certain financial and administrative transactions electronically. These electronic transactions are those for which standards have been adopted by the Secretary under HIPAA, such as electronic billing and fund transfers.

Any business (i.e.Billing Services, Accounting, IT, Insurance Companies etc.) handling Protected Health Information (PHI), which is basically any patient information, is required to be HIPAA compliant as well. It used to be that only “Covered Entities” have to be HIPAA compliant but since the HIPAA Omnibus Rule went into effect in 2013, business associates must be HIPAA compliant too.

Management Plan

The management plan is one of the most crucial components of HIPAA Risk Analysis. It is a road map with specifics of how to correct the violations found in the assessment. It is a prioritized list of action items which needs to be addressed one by one in order to become fully compliant.

Physical Walk-through

Unlike most HIPAA risk analysis services who do the analysis remotely and leave the physical portion of the analysis to you, our HIPAA professionals come to your office and perform an actual physical walkthrough to find possible physical violation or risk that may be in your practice.

External Vulnerability

During the HIPAA Risk Analysis, we perform a complete external scan in which we try to penetrate your network from the internet and find all the possible security holes. In this process, the goal is to evaluate your network protection from any external exploits and attacks. We then generate a detailed report that documents all our findings which we include in the HIPAA Binder.

Policies & Procedures

As part of our HIPAA Risk Analysis package, we review the office policies and procedures and revise it to make sure that it complies with the latest HIPAA regulations. If your office does not have any policies and procedures in place, don't worry, we will generate one that fits your practice needs using the latest HIPAA Security best practices.
