Your dedicated healthcare specialist will analyze your current policies and procedures to help you determine where you are already in compliance and where you need to focus next, not only with HIPAA but with all your compliance concerns.
Policies and Procedures
We will review your current policies and procedures to ensure full compliance. If you don’t have policies, don’t worry. Compliance Plus includes full access to the Kassouf library of policies, forms and training material.
IT Risk Assessment
Compliance Plus includes an annual on-site IT risk assessment by a healthcare IT specialist. This is not just a check list or an app. We engage your staff and IT vendor to identify real issues that pose real threats to your network. Then we help make sure those issues are corrected.
Our goal is to help you bring your compliance programs online as quickly as possible, without cutting corners. Our process reduces this overwhelming challenge into manageable weekly sessions. Compliance work never ends. However, most Compliance Plus clients are well on their way within the first three months.
ANNUAL AND ONGOING TRAINING
Personal and constant training is the only way to ensure a “living” compliance program. Our service includes annual compliance training by a real, live person. In between annual training, new hires watch online training before signing off on the practices policies. After that, users receive monthly security awareness update training and testing via our HIPAA Tips app.
Your dedicated healthcare specialist is available to answer all your compliance questions, to help you work out solutions to potential issues, and to keep you up to date on regulatory changes. When you get your Meaningful Use audit from CMS, your healthcare and IT specialist will help you prepare that critical first response.
Incident and Breach Support
You hope to never have an incident or a breach, but it’s bound to happen. When it does, we are standing ready, as part of your incident response team, to help determine the nature and impact of the incident and what steps you must follow.
MORE THAN HIPAA
Your practice has compliance concerns other than HIPAA. With Compliance Plus, you can manage non-HIPAA policies and organize and retain all your critical compliance documents and evidence.
