KirkpatrickPrice has been assisting clients in the healthcare space for over 12 years.

KirkpatrickPrice assists covered entities and business associates with compliance concerns with risk analysis, penetration testing, SOC 2/HITRUST, and HIPAA audits.
“The protection of Personal Healthcare Information has taken centerstage recently because of the updates to the HHS HIPAA audit protocol and the enhanced enforcement activities. KirkpatrickPrice is pleased to participate in the HIMSS conference to bring our experience in Risk Analysis, Penetration Testing, Business Associate Management, and other healthcare-specific services to this year’s attendees,” said Joseph Kirkpatrick, Managing Partner with KirkpatrickPrice.
“We know the HIMSS Annual Conference is where the brightest minds in health and IT meet, and our exhibit floor offers the latest technologies and education sessions to help generate new ideas during the conference. In addition, the exhibition floor is open three days, at least eight hours each day, during HIMSS17, so that exhibitors have more time to meet with attendees. We are always honored to welcome all of our exhibitors to the conference, and appreciate their contributions to our collaborative efforts to transform health and healthcare with IT,” said Karen Malone, vice president, meeting services, HIMSS North America.
