HIPAA

Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA)

Maintain compliance, protect privacy and establish IT security.

Health organizations must comply with the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) regarding security and privacy regulations. HIPAA compliance requires healthcare providers to balance patient care with the imperative to protect patient information. HORNE Cyber Solutions understands HIPAA and provides the services and guidance to help you maintain compliance as well as create a more secure IT environment to safeguard the confidentiality, integrity and availability of individually-identifiable patient health information.

Innovation Introduces Risk

Today’s healthcare environment is increasingly cloud-based with innovations to support mobile interactions, Bluetooth access, patient portals, and connected medical devices. Every innovation introduces risks and vulnerabilities into the security of the organization. HORNE Cyber collaborates with our Healthcare team to help your organization address HIPAA mandates, minimize security vulnerabilities and secure your bottom line.

HIPAA Mandates are Extensive

HORNE Cyber helps provide clarity around HIPAA compliance complexity. Our team performs regular HIPAA Privacy and Security Gap Analyses and HIPAA Security Risk Assessments. We test inside your electronic walls, and between your organization and your partners to confirm the protection and integrity of PHI and electronic patient health information (ePHI).

 

Security Risk Assessments

HIPAA requires both a technical and non-technical review of security risk. Our team looks at the entire technology environment to assess your protection against any potential threat or risk such as: natural risk (disasters), human risk (employees or hackers), and technical threats (systems breaking down).

 Are you managing badge access controls? Are you protecting your computers and data centers? Are passwords implemented properly across all system entry points? Our professionals look at every element to assess the current condition and prepare narrative reports that point out areas where you can enhance security.
