HIPAA Compliances

1996, 2009, 2013. Do these dates and HIPAA mean anything to your practice? How about $4 million, $3 million, $1.5 million, or $50,000 minimum in fines?

First, do you have an ongoing, active, updated HIPAA compliance program? Second, do you have all the security rules covered and especially a detailed risk analysis performed and documented? Third, have you changed policies, procedures and documents relative to the new Omnibus Rules that went into effect September 23, 2013? Fourth, do you understand willful neglect?

Our solution is a step‐by‐step, easily understandable approach that nearly any support staff can implement. We are glad to answer any quick question our managed ITGold clients have. In most cases where consulting services are desired, they are available for an hourly fee. Once a system is in place it only takes a few hours per quarter of the year to keep it updated, in most practices.
