Identify & close gaps
By completing a simple “yes/no” survey against the HIPAA Security Rule requirements, your organization will be able to easily identify where any gaps in your program exist. Any time you answer “no” to meeting one of the Security Rule requirements, you’ll be enabled to uncover the root cause of the issue; is it linked to one specific department or branch, or a missing application? Track and report on all of this information so that you can identify weaknesses and begin the work of implementing new controls, policies and procedures to help you comply.
Leverage a best practice risk assessment
Beyond assessing and associating policies to requirements, the Security Rule also requires covered entities to conduct a risk assessment. LogicManager facilitates that with an out-of-the-box risk library that’s aligned to industry expectations. This risk assessment is flexible – it factors in the expectation that organizations of different resources and maturities will have different protocols and requirements in place. Tailor the assessment to the size, needs and costs unique to your organization.
Set it and forget it
Assessing for HIPAA compliance is not a one-and-done activity; with our automated task and workflow functionalities, set up assessment tasks and allow the system to send reminders out to the appropriate parties on the frequency that you choose. This automation eliminates human error, as well as the risk of potentially missing a deadline and being slapped with regulatory fines.
Maintain a centralized repository
Keep everything in one centralized location and so that all departments have one formalized process for accessing and adhering to HIPAA Security Rule requirements. No more wasting time and manpower on back and forth, interdepartmental email chains and navigating different teams’ methods of tracking compliance. Instead, everyone will provide the necessary information in one location following one streamlined process.
