HIPAA Privacy and Security Compliance for Provider Networks
HIPAA Analytics offers HIPAA privacy and security "Shared Resources" as a cost-effective way to optimize compliance for physician network members.
June 25, 2014 (Newswire.com) - HIPAA Analytics offers HIPAA privacy and security "Shared Resources" as a cost-effective way to optimize compliance for physician network members. HIPAA Analytics Shared Resources Compliance Program ensures network members have access to a HIPAA privacy and security consultant with specialized skills, experience and best practices to meet the growing demands of compliance administration.
HIPAA compliance for healthcare covered entities is becoming a risk management challenge. Today, physician network members (no matter what size) are tasked with growing responsibilities of conducting a risk assessment, monitoring business processes for compliance, managing privacy and security policies and procedures, data breach preparedness and coordinating compliance requirements with vendors.
In addition, new regulations and guidance documents require physician network members to research federal and state regulations. The U.S. Department of Health & Human Services for example, implements regulatory change via a process of public Notice of Proposed Rulemaking for modifying privacy and security rules, compliance and investigations, imposition of civil money penalties, and procedures for hearings issued under HIPAA, all of which must be monitored closely to maintain compliance relevancy and accuracy in a HIPAA program. Privacy and security oversight has reached a new level of demand and the time between an issue arising and when it must be resolved is shrinking fast in order to protect patients protected health information and the healthcare organizations exposure.
