Guard patient information and your reputation through HIPAA compliance

Most organizations understand the requirements of the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA). Yet some seek to comply only enough to avoid fines. Crowe wants to help you understand the advantages to moving beyond basic compliance. The federal government has offered incentives to Medicare-eligible hospitals and professionals to invest in electronic health record (EHR) technology. This means it can behoove you to upgrade protected health information (PHI) security and privacy processes simultaneously. However, as organizations focus on HIPAA compliance, they may encounter these challenges:

  • IT security governance
  • Application security
  • Security management process
  • Information infrastructure security
  • Third-party risk management

Crowe has developed an approach that can be used by a knowledgeable, independent staff, or outside resources, to conduct security and privacy risk analyses, allowing you to:

  • Understand the gaps between regulatory requirements and data security needs
  • Prioritize risks to the security of your PHI ecosystem
  • Identify and plan to address PHI security risks
  • Create practical, achievable action plans to help effectively reduce risk
