The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996
HIPAA Privacy Rule provides federal protections for personal health information held by covered entities. HIPAA gives patients an array of rights with respect to their personal information while it still allows the disclosure of personal health information needed for patient care and other important purposes. Our consultants are well versed in HIPAA audits and managing remediation projects, we help covered entities design and implement a series of administrative, physical, and technical safeguards targeted to assure the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of electronic protected health information.
Our approach enables healthcare entities to identify areas of non-compliance and define a purposeful risk approach that allow for meaningful controls definition and implementation. In addition to enabling HIPAA compliance our clients will have the ability to easily re-align to and meet other regulatory standards such as PCI DSS, NIST and others. We will not only check compliance requirements checkboxes but we will perform an integrated risk evaluation focused on HIPAA requirements and as result we will identify issues beyond simple compliance. The results of the risk evaluation can be further used to start the appropriate remediation projects and ensure that their deliverable will meet the appropriate compliance goals.
Vernance is well aware of the challenges faced by the Healthcare industry in regards to HIPAA compliance and is committed to help organizations overcome these challenges by implementing a new approach based on company reality and budget.
