Incident Response Program
Trust predictiveIT to get your practice HIPAA compliant
HIPAA compliance breaches can be a serious problem for practices, and the cost associated with a major breach can exceed tens of thousands of dollars and even cost you business -literally.
Even if you think your practice is HIPAA compliant, it is important to have an incident and breach response plan, as well as a properly trained staff to know what to do in the event of an accident.
predictiveIT can develop the Incident Response Program for your practice, or review and evaluate the program you currently have. We will:
- Review your existing response documentation, capabilities, personnel and procedures and perform a Gap Analysis against best practices and frameworks for compliance and governance.
- Evaluate and assess the comprehensiveness to current compliance regulations.
- Identify specific strengths and weaknesses within the IRP procedure.
- Provide customized security recommendations for improving the IRP procedure.
- Author/revise IRP Policy as necessary.
