Nobody expects to have a breach, a loss of patient data or other situation that could result in a HIPAA audit. If you're a covered entity - almost all physicians and dentists that accept insurance and transmit electronically, you're required to comply with both the HIPAA Privacy and HIPAA Security Rule. This means more than just having a Notice of Privacy Practices and a few other forms in place.
Compliance with the HIPAA Privacy and Security Rule doesn't have to be complicated or expensive. Non-compliance is though, costing entities almost 20 million dollars in fines in 2017.
Our 2018 HIPAA Privacy and HIPAA Security Manuals are ready to go and have everything you need to get into compliance fast. Policies, forms, risk assessments, employee training and more all. We've provided common-sense compliance manuals, training and assistance for healthcare providers since 1992.
