I know I should be HIPAA Compliant. Where do I Start?

Phase 2 HIPAA compliance audits are here, and we all know that protecting an asset as valuable as PHI can be a challenging responsibility. When you partner with KirkpatrickPrice, it doesn’t have to be. We will help you get started in the right direction with a HIPAA Risk Analysis, the first step in becoming HIPAA compliant.

Why start with a HIPAA Risk Analysis?

  • A Risk Analysis is required by 45 CFR 164.308(a)(1)(ii)(A)
  • The Risk Analysis was the most common issue found in the Phase 1 HIPAA audits and is necessary in order to meet HIPAA requirements.
  • The Risk Analysis is specifically designed to help you identify your unique risks to ePHI.
  • It’s the right first step because it lays out a roadmap to properly protect ePHI by prioritizing the greatest vulnerabilities.

Utilizing a third party like KirkpatrickPrice to conduct your Risk Analysis can specifically be helpful if you have limited resources, and are uncertain about the regulatory requirements or the Risk Analysis process. KirkpatrickPrice’s experience and training can help make the Risk Analysis and HIPAA compliance audit process manageable for your organization.
