HIPAA/Privacy and Data Security  Compliance

HIPAA (Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act) and associated legislation impose complex rules and regulations on your organization to ensure the privacy and security of Protected Health Information (PHI). Abiding by these rules is a dynamic process, complicated daily by the increase in the use of technology to store and transmit PHI.  To avoid violations, your organization must adopt a process to implement HIPAA policies and procedures, proactively assess risk and potential liability, continually train staff, and implement prospective compliance programming. 

At Compliagent, we guide clients ranging from physician groups to medical device companies, law firms, and nursing homes to full compliance with HIPAA and associated privacy and security rules.  Our consultants, certified in Healthcare Compliance by the Compliance Certification Board, will tailor the following services to your organization needs, and keep you apprised of any changes in legislation that may affect your program:
