The first step in protecting your PHI is identifying all parties that need to become HIPAA compliant. If you work with organizations that store, transmit, process, maintain, or access your PHI, then you need to know exactly what they do with the data. SecurityMetrics combines automated communication tools with personal compliance consultant support to deliver accurate risk data about your business associates.
Not every BA is at the same level of compliance. SecurityMetrics has multiple tools that increase PHI security and assist in the compliance process. SecurityMetrics tools include:
- Risk analysis
- Vulnerability scanning
- Penetration testing
- Breach coverage
- Security policies and procedures
- Privacy and security training
- Business associate agreement template
Varying levels of HIPAA compliance validation allow you to assign specific security requirements to each BA risk segment.
As your business associates progress towards compliance, SecurityMetrics tracks and reports their success. Regular status reports through an account manager allow you to monitor your business associates’ security efforts and to continually ensure an approved level of HIPAA compliance.
