HIPAA Compliance Services  

HIPAA and Meaningful Use

For nearly two years, the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) has conducted audits and are levying fines against healthcare organizations that are not compliant with the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA). Along with a substantial fine, breaches affecting more than 500 individuals must be posted on the HHS ”Wall of Shame” a website that details the name of the organization and the type of breach. Breaches under 500 individuals are also required to be reported and can result in fines.

Valley Business Machines can help you understand the business risks associated with HIPAA and how your people, process and technology compare with HIPAA security rule requirements. VBM HIPAA Risk Assessments also satisfy core measure 15 of Meaningful Use objectives. VBM also offers HIPAA Risk Remediation products and services and help you along the entire path to HIPAA compliance.

HIPAA/Meaningful Use Risk Assessment and Gap Analysis
The HIPAA Risk Assessment is an accurate and thorough analysis of the potential risk and vulnerabilities to the confidentiality, integrity and availability of electronic protected health information held by your organization. This is the first requirement for complying with the HIPAA Security Rule and will satisfy core measure 15 of the Meaningful Use objectives. After identifying the risk to your organization, a thorough analysis of your environment and existing Policies and Procedures will be performed which will identify the gaps that may exist between your existing environment and the standard to be HIPAA Compliant.

Penetration Testing / Vulnerability Assessment - VBM conduct network vulnerability assessments to identify vulnerability's that could be exploited by internal and external users with malicious intent. This is not needed for all organizations, and depends on the results from the Risk Assessment.
