HIPAA Security: Promoting
Security Rules were finalized in February of 2003; the compliance
deadline is approaching.
We have developed a four-phase plan
to bring your hospital or large practice into best business practices
while achieving compliance with the new HIPAA Security rules in a
timely, modular fashion.
At each step of the way we take the time to help you understand the
issues at hand, and make an informed decision as to which changes
to implement, how to implement them, and how to best maintain the
benefits these changes deliver over the long run.
The first phase normally requires two weeks, and results in a complete
assessment and remediation plan. This plan will lay out your many
options, including having us train your staff to conduct much or most
of the work themselves. Following the second phase - remediation -
we return after two months to do an audit of how well the new changes
are functioning. Finally, we schedule a combination of monthly, semi-annual
and annual tests to confirm your continued benefit from the changes
you have instituted.
