Are You Just Being Told That You Are HIPAA Compliant or Do You Have the Documentation to Prove Your Compliance?
A lot of medical practices think they are HIPAA compliant, but they’re not.
They don’t have the documentation to prove compliance.
Because HIPAA compliance is complex, and many IT support companies aren’t qualified to do the job.
Here’s an important question.
Have you considered the disruption and work involved in an HHS HIPAA audit?
A HIPAA audit requires a small mountain of paperwork/documentation, and the auditors can ask for up to six years of records. There are six audits required, and all your vendors will be examined to see if they have a Business Associate agreement in place that conforms to HIPAA mandates.
