While necessary to protect confidential patient information, HIPAA compliance can be a challenge for medical offices and their patients. Keep everything secure with our full-service HIPAA compliance tool, and never worry about your next audit.

Compliance Services Included:

Our robust platform ensures your assessments, policies, and remediation documentation are easily available in the case of an audit and walks you through every step of the process.

HIPAA Security Risk Assessment

We regularly assess your network, quickly reporting any non-compliance issues and step up to remediate quickly.

HIPAA Compliance Checklist

While the checklist may seem short, each component has multiple steps in order to comply. Starting with your HIPAA security risk assessment through internal processes, US IT Services can make your organization compliant quickly and keep it compliant year after year.

Establish & Document Internal Policies

Never worry about downloading and completing all the required documents for compliance. We auto-generate any necessary documentation, so it’s ready, organized, and available when you need it.

Quick Remediation When Necessary

During routine scans, we may find areas for remediation in your network. But with quick action and following best practice, the issue will be resolved without any damage. We also document any of these instances for reference during an audit.

Audit Assistant

Because we have been assessing, documenting, and maintaining your records all along, audits are no longer a frantic, nerve-wracking challenge. With all your records in one place, you can respond to audits quickly and efficiently (and be confident that they won’t discover any issues).

HIPAA Components:

HIPAA can seem complicated, since it applies to everything healthcare related, from small medical practices (your local doctor) to a large hospital. These are a few of the components US IT Services will help you maintain to keep patient data safe. With our regular HIPAA security risk assessments in place, you’ll always be compliant in these areas.

Permissions & Administrative Access

Access applies to both electronic access and physical documents in a file cabinet. Files stored digitally should only be accessed by the necessary personnel, and physical documents need to stay out of public view (confidential documents should not be visible at the sign in desk).

With electronic document storage, that means the billing department would not have access to patient visit notes. This keeps patient health information safe if a hacker gained access to a billing computer.

Communication Tools

While email is the most convenient tool for working with patients, sending unencrypted email outside of your network violates HIPAA regulations. For this reason, you should only be sending faxes outside your network, or establishing a client portal, so they can access their own information.

Obligation to Report a Breach

If a data breach does occur, your organization will need to report it. Depending on the number of patients involved, medical practices may need to report the breach to local media and the government. While the number is usually above 500 patients, that may change.
