Keeping up with the requirements of the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) presents a challenge on many levels for healthcare providers, hospitals, health plans and the network of business associates and vendors who support them. While in the course of normal operations it is quite easy for an organization to become exposed, the risks associated with noncompliance are significant and growing.
In early 2016, OCR (the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services’ Office for Civil Rights) initiated a second phase of audits that deepens scrutiny, strengthens penalties and widens the scope to include the compliance of vendors, suppliers and consultants who provide services to organizations.
Our experts at VantagePoint can work with both organizations and business associates to provide risk analysis services, assess and address gaps in compliance, coach best practices to reduce risks, and to help build a durable basis for meeting all requirements under the HIPAA Privacy, Security and Breach Notification Rules.
