HIPAA/HITECH/Omnibus Rule Services

Protect the privacy and security of health information

In the quest to have access to all information anywhere anytime, it seems that everyone forgot about considering the risk to do so. Covered entities and business associates in healthcare and life sciences are being pushed to proactively manage risk now, whether it be from within the organization or by the federal government.  So when it comes to meeting the HIPAA/HITECH/Omnibus mandates, how prepared is your organization?

Health data protection for all shapes and sizes

The HIPAA Privacy and Security Rules apply to all healthcare providers, health plans, healthcare clearinghouses, and to any service provider that manages electronic protected health information (ePHI).  This applies to organizations in the life sciences field such as medical devices, biotechnology, and pharmaceuticals.

Service providers (business associates) know that a third-party validation of their HIPAA compliance is a competitive differentiator that demonstrates they're securing ePHI and providing peace of mind to their customers.  Software companies, mobile application developers, hosting organizations and the like should all consider HIPAA compliance and application security if they're managing ePHI.  Because it's not if a data breach will occur, but when.

We provide the audit, advisory and assessment services needed to achieve HIPAA compliance and safeguard your data against vulnerabilities.  These solutions will help you:

  • Understand how HIPAA/HITECH/Omnibus Rules impact your organization
