Healthcare Data Privacy Solutions

If you are a healthcare provider, health insurer, healthcare clearinghouse or you provide services to these types of businesses and have access to their PHI, then this solution is for you.

 

Healthcare data privacy refers to the practices, laws, and policies that ensure the privacy and protection of Protected Health Information (PHI) and Electronic Protected Health Information (ePHI).  This type of data is generally sensitive in nature and demands added attention.  Because of this, the Health Information Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) and various state regulations define a set of rules that must be followed.  At Waterpointe Consulting, we offer a wide-array of flexible services to help you understand and navigate these rules. 

 

Our service delivery looks like this:

Phase One - Audit

Auditing is a necessary first step to understand exactly where you are in your data privacy journey.  Our data privacy experts will audit the following areas:

1. Data Inventory

2. Specific regulatory requirements

3. Current data privacy policies and procedures

4. Privacy notices

5. Business associates and Business Associate Agreements (BAAs)

6. Security controls

7. Incident and data breach readiness

Once the audit is complete, we provide a full accounting of all audit results, provide you with recommendations on next steps, and provide a roadmap and timeline for the agreed upon changes.

Phase Two - Build

The Build Phase is where remediation tasks and enhancements get implemented.  This is generally a combination of notice, policy, and procedure creation, implementation of technical controls, and documentation.

Phase Three - Train

The Train Phase is all about ensuring your staff is trained on applicable data privacy regulations including HIPAA, the newly implemented processes and procedures, privacy and security best practices, and other topics specific to how your business operates.  We can also produce privacy and security awareness materials for display in your office or on your website.
