In this Talking VoIP with Datagate podcast, Mark Loveys is joined by HIPAA compliance expert Paul Redding of Compliancy Group.
Compliancy Group’s compliance tracking and management solution is specifically built around the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act 1996 (HIPAA law), a US federal law.
Founded in 2005 by former auditors and compliance experts, Compliancy Group helps clients implement an effective, comprehensive compliance program.
HIPAA is broken into three separate rules:
- The Privacy Rule regulates the use and disclosure of all Protected Health Information (including paper and electronic)
- The Security Rule regulates the use and disclosure of electronic Protected Health Information
- The Omnibus Rule requires healthcare providers to update their Business Associate Agreements, attain assurances form Business Associates that they are complying with the HIPAA Security Rule and that they have updated their Notice of Privacy Practices (source: Compliancy Group)
What HIPAA represents for all service providers is an opportunity to elevate their services and differentiate their business
When it comes to HIPAA compliance, MSPs must implement all policies and procedures, perform all audits (not just the IT ones), and should strive to build a culture of compliance.
