With the increasing shift to electronic records management and use of EMR systems, more and more Americans are becoming victims of healthcare data breaches. Thus, how medical information is treated by Covered Entities and Business Associates has been heightened in the information security field. Healthcare organizations are required to assess, remediate, validate and maintain ongoing compliance activities.

Our HIPAA Compliance Program assists in establishing and meeting the requirements by assessing the general and application control requirements throughout Covered Entities and their Business Associates’ various business functions.
We follow these processes to protect against internal and external threats:
As required to qualify for the Medicare and Medicaid EHR Incentive program, Hospitals and Eligible Professionals are required to demonstrating Meaningful Use. This requires undergoing a security risk analysis and correcting any identified deficiencies discovered.
However, many healthcare organizations struggle to understand the application of Meaningful Use and the other quality measurements, reporting, and financial implications created by the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act.
CompliancePoint's HIPAA Risk Assessment process also helps organizations meet Meaningful Use requirements. Our process includes a comprehensive review of EHR systems, IT infrastructure and the operating environment for e-PHI.
Our HIPAA Risk Assessment gives visibility into how proficient the organization is at protecting the integrity & confidentiality of e-PHI and how to minimize the associated risk.
Following the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (ACA) of 2010, federal and state health insurance exchanges or HIXs were established. As a result, compliance requirements are now in place focused on the security of computer systems handling patient/healthcare information. These requirements are known as Minimum Acceptable Risk Standards for Exchanges (MARS-E).
CompliancePoint's MARS-E assessment process helps state-sponsored HIXs reach compliance with the MARS-E framework. Our experts can help you assess your current compliance status, develop the necessary policies and procedures, and develop an action plan for remediation and ongoing compliance.
The "dual liability" that Covered Entities share puts added pressure on them to maintain compliance throughout their partnerships.
CompliancePoint provides third party compliance monitoring of Business Associates by performing an initial gap assessment, maintaining ongoing (daily, monthly, quarterly and annual) compliance tasks and preparing audit documentation for planned and unplanned audits.
Although Business Associates now have a contractual liability to Covered Entities for HIPAA compliance, going through CompliancePoint's monitoring and certification process serves as a competitive differentiator. It demonstrates your organization’s commitment to quality and compliance which puts Healthcare Providers' minds at ease.
Analyze the Administrative, Physical, IT and Policies & Procedure operations to determine what is in scope for the HIPAA / HITECH regulatory requirement.
Assess the BA's regulatory posture and provide a report outlining deficiencies and vulnerabilities and the steps needed to remediate them.
We provide assistance creating the Remediation Project Plan which is available to the Company's Project team for the life of the entire project.
Covered Entities and Business Associates may correct deficiencies with internal resources or outsource that work to CompliancePoint.
Upon completion of deficiency remediation, CompliancePoint conducts a final audit review and issues a report of compliance.
This report can be shared with all appropriate authorities as proof of third party validation of compliance.
Regulatory compliance is an ongoing process that requires monitoring compliance levels by performing required daily, monthly, quarterly and annual compliance tasks and preparing audit documentation for planned and unplanned audits.
CompliancePoint leverages technology to automate and streamline that ongoing process.
