Bob Chaput - Why Toolkit Was Created
Bob Chaput Clearwater Compliance
We created our HIPAA Security Assessment online tool for two reasons: 1) help you become HIPAA HITECH Security compliant, and, 2) help you meet specific Meaningful Use objectives.
Improving health and wellbeing and achieving specific healthcare outcomes in the US for all Americans are the overarching goals of The HITECH Act. As part of ARRA, HITECH makes available over $21 Billion in incentives to eligible providers and health information exchanges to help create a national health information network. The legislation anticipated, appropriately, a major expansion in the creation, use and transmission of ePHI. As a result, HITECH also represents a “game changer” in terms of HIPAA Privacy and Security Compliance. In addition to HITECH, providers must meet Meaningful Use requirements that include HIPAA Privacy and Security standards in order to receive their incentive dollars.
We designed our HIPAA Security Assessment online tool after consulting with dozens of healthcare clients, helping them achieve HIPAA compliance. We've distilled the HIPAA HITECH Security requirements into an easy to use tool that also creates a robust remediation project plan for you.
Unfortunately, there is simply not enough information available about how to achieve compliance, and too few experts qualified to assist. Part of our overall HIPAA Security Compliance roadmap, this tool helps you jump-start or revitalize your compliance program with a comprehensive self-assessment.
