Compliance & Meaningful Use guidelines

Securing Protected Health Information (PHI) data is not a choice, it’s a mandate. The healthcare sector continues to be troubled by data security issues.

58% of security incidents involved insiders—mistakes, errors, lost devices—making it the only industry in which internal factors pose the biggest threats to an organization, according to the 2019 Verizon Protected Health Information Data Breach Report.

HIPAA Compliance Is a Mandate, Not an Option.

The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) was created to modernize the flow of healthcare information, specifically, the handling of personally identifiable information maintained by the healthcare and healthcare insurance industries. The main objective is to protect this information from fraud and theft. HIPAA is now a standard for all healthcare providers on how to handle personal health information (PHI). Failure to meet HIPAA rules carries stiff financial penalties.

What Is HIPAA Compliance?

HIPAA requires organizations with personal health information (PHI) to regularly review the administrative, physical, and technical safeguards utilized to protect the security of their information. Conducting a security risk assessment is a crucial requirement of the HIPAA security rule and a core requirement for providers seeking payment through the Medicare and Medicaid EHR Incentive Program, commonly referred to as the Meaningful Use Program.

HIPAA IT Gap Assessment

The next step after the HIPAA Risk Assessment is the HIPAA IT Gap Assessment. Our Redhawk HIPAA IT GAP Assessments follow a similar approach as the HIPAA Risk Assessment. We can provide a deeper technical, physical, and administrative analysis of your technical environment and the potentials for gaps in your security as they relate to HIPAA, ISO/IEC 27001, ISO 27702, and NIST frameworks.
