HIPAA Policies and Procedures
Producing compliant HIPAA Policies and Procedures is complex.
It is a multi-step problem for practices of all sizes. Serious regulatory expertise is needed to adequately address this issue.
A number of questions surface throughout this process:
- Where is our practice at now? What do we need to change in order to become compliant?
- How do we write these policies? How will we be sure the policies are enough?
- How do we track our HIPAA compliance? How will we prove our compliancy to auditors?
- How do we evaluate our compliance moving forward? How do we ensure that we’re doing what we need to?
EMRSoap offers a full suite of HIPAA Policy and Procedure related services that will bring your office into full regulatory compliancy.
HIPAA Gap Analysis – A HIPAA Gap Analysis is the first step in becoming compliant; this process will let your practice understand its own regulatory gaps. An EMRSoap HIPAA Gap Analysis includes a strategic roadmap for compliancy, as well as a visual understanding of action items that need to be completed. We pride ourselves on lucidity, clear examples, and brevity in our HIPAA Gap Analysis, inducing quality swift information absorption.
HIPAA Policies and Procedures – EMRSoap includes fully compliant HIPAA policies and procedures with any purchase of a HIPAA Risk Assessment. These HIPAA policies and procedures have been written by a HIPAA lawyer, and can eliminate thousands of dollars of expense in legal or internal labor time. The twin headaches of determining which policies need to be created and writing the policies from scratch are reduced to simple tailoring based on your office practices.
HIPAA Compliance Tracking – As your practice becomes compliant, it will need to give proof of such in the event of an audit. A practice policy of training new employees in the proper HIPAA regulations will be meaningless if the policy implementation isn’t tracked. EMRSoap offers several HIPAA Compliance Tracking options that will let your practice tell a compelling evidence-backed story about its compliance.
HIPAA Evaluation– Regulations require periodic technical and non-technical HIPAA evaluations of office compliance. This process ensures that your practice is staying in line, and taking its HIPAA policies and procedures seriously. By conducting these HIPAA evaluations for your practice, EMRSoap can help ensure compliance over time and minimize the use of your worker’s busy schedules.
