Helping organization to be compliant
Loricca is proud to offer the updated HIPAA Privacy and Security Tool Kit developed in collaboration with the Coppersmith Schermer & Brockelman law firm in Phoenix, Arizona.
The Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health Act (the HITECH Act) has triggered the need for health care organizations to make significant changes to their HIPAA Privacy and Security policies. The stakes are high: the HITECH Act substantially increased civil penalties for HIPAA violations, the federal government now has the resources for increased enforcement, and the Act provided authority to State Attorneys General to enforce HIPAA.
This tool is not one resource but, rather, a collection of resources to help your organization create an effective compliance plan. Some key topics addressed in the HIPAA Privacy and Security Tool Kit include:
- Breach Reporting Requirements
- Security Rule Compliance
- Risk Assessment
- Security Controls/Safeguards
- Technical Vulnerability Requirements
- Business Associate Agreements
- Genetic Information
- Other Privacy Rule Amendments
