Are you HIPAA Compliant?

Protect Yourself From Fines – Partner With Strattmont Group For HIPAA Compliance Analysis!

HIPAA compliance is one of the most important factors in modern healthcare IT. Set forth in 1996, the HIPAA act contains a multitude of regulations meant to help safeguard patient data, and guide healthcare IT professionals as they secure Personally Identifiable Information (PII) and Patient Healthcare Information (PHI).

Almost all medical professionals are required to abide by HIPAA guidelines – including hospitals, pharmacies, individual physician practices, dentists, medical business associates, health insurance companies, and more.

And though HIPAA compliance is critical to avoid fines that range from $100-$1,500,000 – or even jail time, in some cases – many healthcare professionals fall short when attempting to comply with HIPAA guidelines.

Strattmont Group – Providing Expert HIPAA Compliance Services

At Strattmont Group, we have a staff of IT professionals who specialize in HIPAA compliance solutions and HIPAA risk assessment.

We focus on issues such as the HIPAA Privacy Rule, breach notification assessments, and the HIPAA security rule. Our staff of HIPAA risk assessment consultants specialize in analyzing your IT infrastructure and identifying potential areas where you may be in breach of HIPAA guidelines.

Our HIPAA Assessment Process

During our HIPAA assessment process, we focus on the HIPAA privacy rule, and the HIPAA security rule – two of the most commonly breached HIPAA guidelines.

HIPAA Security Rule Assessment – Using a proprietary 54-point examination system, our team will take a deep look at your current network and IT security systems, and analyze each one for HIPAA compliance. We will analyze your current compliance with HIPAA, and issue informed guidelines on next steps, should we find that your security systems don’t adhere to HIPAA guidelines.

HIPAA Privacy Rule Assessment – Our team of HIPAA experts will use a 63 data-point analysis sequence to determine your adherence to the HIPAA privacy rule. We will examine patient information databases, backups, IT infrastructure, and end-user systems to ensure that your patient data is being adequately protected, and conforms to HIPAA guidelines.

After we have finished our HIPAA assessment, we will provide you with physical and digital copies of both reports, and issue our recommendations for next steps, should you be in breach of HIPAA compliance. If you need further guidance, our HIPAA consultants can help you implement the required security standards, procedures, and protocols.

HIPAA Security Analysis Services

To fully conform with HIPAA guidelines, it’s critical to take an in-depth look at your current security systems and identify any areas where a security breach could take place. At Strattmont Group, our specialized HIPAA security consultants can guide you through a comprehensive risk analysis, and help you identify any potential security threats.

This helps protect you from HIPAA fines and has the added benefit of completing Meaningful Use requirements for Medicare and Medicaid incentive bonuses.
