The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) was passed by Congress in 1996 in order to require the protection and confidential handling of protected health information (PHI), both in paper and electronic forms (ePHI) and these federal policies set compliance standards for entities that handle and use the information. Determining where your organization’s weaknesses exist can be a tedious task, especially with the ever-changing pace of healthcare, technology, information security, among your standard routine business.
Dean Dorton Technology’s team is compromised of experienced professionals who have years of experience performing HIPAA IT Risk Assessments, which can help establish a complete picture of your organization’s security measures. As part of our HIPAA IT Risk Assessment, we will provide detail regarding any risks and a clear roadmap to achieve compliance with the HIPAA regulations and mandates to ensure compliance. Our team will work with you to identify and evaluate your most critical assets and functional areas. We will tailor the process to your specific organization, environment, and circumstances in order to find any lack of technical controls among other business risks.
We can also provide ongoing IT Risk Assessments especially if your organization is subject to compliance standards beyond HIPAA, such as PCI, to make sure overlapping requirements are being addressed efficiently and effectively.
