HIPAA Policies and Procedures
HIPAA compliance 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 your practice at now? What do you need to change to become compliant?
- How do you write these policies? How will you be sure the policies are enough?
- How do you track your HIPAA compliance? How will you prove your compliance to auditors?
- How do you evaluate your compliance moving forward? How do you ensure that you’re doing what you need to?
It’s complicated, but the EMRSoap team has the answers!
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 compliance, 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 – for 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 will 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 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 will help ensure compliance over time and minimize the use of your worker’s busy schedules.
