Achieving and maintaining compliance with all provisions of the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) Rules can be a challenge for healthcare providers, health plans, healthcare clearinghouses, and business associates of HIPAA-covered entities.
HIPAA covers a broad range of healthcare organizations and vendors, with vastly different operating environments, business models, policies and procedures, and IT systems. The HIPAA text sets standards for all those organizations to follow but does not provide step-by-step instructions for achieving compliance. Further, there are many aspects of compliance that are not simple, and it is easy to overlook some of the requirements of HIPAA.
When HIPAA-regulated entities do achieve compliance, they must implement a program to ensure compliance is maintained. It is important to set up a program that operates efficiently, where employees across the entire organization play a part in ensuring HIPAA compliance is maintained. Sufficient time and resources need to be dedicated to maintaining compliance, without making the process too labor-intensive.
The consequences of any HIPAA failures can be severe. In the event of an audit, compliance investigation, complaint, or data breach, regulators will look at an organization’s compliance program and will assess whether the requirements of HIPAA have been met. HIPAA-regulated entities must be able to provide documentation to demonstrate their good faith effort at compliance, and substantial financial penalties and sanctions can be imposed for any failures, including a lack of documentation proving compliance. Considering the potential for unintentional violations of HIPAA, ensuring your compliance program is comprehensive and effective is critical. Fortunately, help is at hand.
