Broader definition of breaches and increased penalties under the new HIPAA Rule mean higher risks than ever. The Rule’s major changes make it a game changer for healthcare leaders, who must prioritize a new, aggressive plan for HIPAA Privacy and Security compliance.
Phoenix, long known for its HIPAA expertise, will support your organization’s Omnibus HIPAA compliance effort, to include:
Impact Assessment: Phoenix will analyze current systems, all policies and procedures related to uses and disclosures, Business Associate agreements, potential BA relationships of subcontractors, notices and forms, and breach notification processes. The assessment will also include personal interviews and physical walkthroughs.
Report and Recommendations: Utilizing a crosswalk between past HIPAA requirements and changes in the Omnibus HIPAA rule, Phoenix will provide a detailed report on your organization’s current HIPAA compliance /risk status with an analysis of any gaps. Every gap reflects exposure to risk.
The report will identify specific areas of the HIPAA regulations that should be addressed, with recommendations for reaching HIPAA compliance and mitigating your liability risks.
Compliance Plan: We will help you build a sustainable compliance program that combines immediate remediation and training steps with long-term continuous improvement. We can also help you operationalize compliance by measuring your program against the metrics used by the Office of Civil Rights in its HIPAA audit protocols.
