If a compliance examiner contacted or visited your practice today, would your practice be able to provide policies and procedures to adequately convince the examiner that your practice has the framework in place to safeguard protected health information as required by the Security Rule within HIPAA.  “If it’s not written down, it didn’t happen” is a common premise utilized by compliance examiners in most regulated industries, and the medical industry is no longer immune.  Read about the importance of having documented policies and procedures as noted by the U.S.Department of Health & Human Services.  We can help you make sure your compliance program is well documented and represents an accurate portrayal of your desire to maintain a HIPAA compliant culture at your practice.
