Government Compliance Have Your Head Spinning?

Do you have an audit looming, something that could cost your organization thousands? What if you could have the reports ready for the auditor? Think of the money you would save. We have the technology and the know-how to prepare your HIPAA compliance reports for you on a monthly basis. We can even tell you how you did and put a project plan in place if you’re not meeting the relevant requirements.

Stop looking over your shoulder, waiting for the inevitable shoe to drop. Take control of your I.T. environment and start breathing easier. Stop worrying about that audit. Be prepared for it. Let us assess your HIPAA audit risk. We can look at:

  • HIPAA Site Interview with HIPAA Security and/or Privacy Officers– the type of entity, locations of ePHI (Electronic Protected Health Information), gathering of information needed to perform Vulnerability Scans, Determine Critical Assets, investigate facility access controls and Identify known gaps.
  • Onsite Survey– Physical Security Walkthrough and facility inspection – are physical safeguards present to protect health information?
  • Data Collections– Networking Scanning tools. Users, passwords management, audit controls, servers and local computers, applications and data criticality analysis, firewall rule inspection, protection against malicious software, Email, Wireless, SNMP, etc.
  • Secondary Data Collection with supplementary scans on items missed by network scanning.
  • Documentation of Security Exceptions and Risk Levels.
  • Network Topology Site diagrams and layer 2-3 detailed reports.

Reports generated by our HIPAA audit risk assessment include Computer Inventory/Identification Worksheet, Drive Encryption, External vulnerability scan detail, File scan (permissions, ePHI presence), Network share identification and permission reports, User Identification, Active vs. Inactive Accounts, Password policy reviews, Evidence of HIPAA Policy Compliance and more.

But partnering with the Networking Specialists team isn’t just about assessing where you are now in relation to legislation. It’s about getting the help you need in keeping up with all the reporting required for compliance. We build this into a service called Managed Compliance Reporting:

Be Prepared with Support and Guidance from the Experts
Our highly trained staff will ensure that your reports are prepared the way the auditors want to see them, and they will take the time to make sure you know what’s going on.

Secure Sensitive Client Data
This is the reason that those regulatory compliance acts exist in the first place. What would happen to your business or your reputation if your client data was stolen? Ensuring you met regulatory compliance requirements means you did everything the government suggested and takes the pressure off.

Industry leading Software
We use only the industry’s best software to help us prepare your reports.  The Department of Defense has been standardized on it for years.

Reduce Operating Costs
Failure to meet regulatory requirements can lead to hefty fines. Identifying and eliminating these risks will save you money.
