HIPAA Privacy & Security Rule Policies and Procedures
Did you know that most HIPAA investigations could have been avoided by having appropriate policies and documentation?
The Office for Civil Rights (OCR) has stated that when an investigation is opened, they review ALL your compliance efforts. They review what you had in place before the incident, what you did during the incident, and what you have done since the incident. They also review all your policies and procedures and not just the area you are being investigated for. Therefore, you must exercise due diligence in creating a complete policy and procedure manual. Do not forget, if it is not documented, it does not exist!
Our system will educate the organization as they go through the process to ensure their policies and procedures have the requirement elements. If your own policies and procedures do not meet the requirements, the system will permit the client to customize the policies and procedures provided for them. Our complete program also includes patient and HIPAA documentation that is also required. All through the program, Aris will guide and educate you on what the questions mean and what you are required to have in place.
HIPAA Risk Management
Did you know that most fines from the Office for Civil Rights (OCR) are from the lack of a risk analysis or the lack of remediation from a risk management plan?
Random audits are rare, but still occur. More common are investigations that are started with a patient complaint or a data breach. Conducting a system wide risk analysis is critical in uncovering potential threats and vulnerabilities. Once uncovered, then the organizations must create a well documented plan to mitigate those risks that could affect the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of electronic protected health information (ePHI).
Part of risk management is ensuring the organization has implemented policies and procedures that are required under the HIPAA Privacy and Security Rules. Most organizations are confused by the terms, “Required and Addressable” when discussing the Security Rule Standards for policies and procedures. “Required” means just as it sounds, this security standard must be implemented as stated. “Addressable” is not optional, it means this security standard has flexibility as to how the standard may be implemented.
Aris’ automated system provides an annual risk analysis to keep you in compliance with an annual review. While you complete the risk analysis questionnaire, the risk management plan is also automatically completed. Aris’s online platform will guide and educate the user on which required elements are needed and what you are required to have in place.
HIPAA Compliance Training
Education is the key to avoiding HIPAA violations and data breaches. You can build a fortress around your network, and it only takes one mistake from an unsuspecting employee to invite a virus in and destroy your data.
Patient data is a very valuable commodity, and hackers at all levels are trying to steal it. Small to medium sized organizations are targets because many of these do not have proper network security in place and the hackers know this. Keep in mind there are also emails sent from spammers that conduct phishing exercises. They try to get the employee to click on a link or share information. Most often these emails look very real and the employee needs to study where the email is from to ensure it is in fact sent from a legitimate person or company.
Next to securing your network, employees are the next line of defense in protecting your data. Ensuring your employees understand threats, how to avoid getting caught in phishing attacks, and what to do should an emergency arise are just some of the areas that should be addressed.
Our monthly HIPAA compliance service includes online HIPAA compliance training at no added cost. For those who are not utilizing our system, you can still access HIPAA training on our training page.
